Stila Smudge Stick Eye Liner In “Deep Fuchsia”



An intensely pigmented, smooth gliding, long lasting eye liner that is in the most luscious raspberry shade! I flipped when I saw this! I am just crazy about red eye makeup, because it can actually flatter green eyes! It is so rare to even find a red eye liner, let alone in a high end brand like Stila! The box does warn that this liner is not retractable. Waterproof. Paraben and preservative free. 0.01 oz.

Eye makeup was done first to wipe away fallout black shadow. Nyx Jumbo Pencil was spread thin over the lid up to the browbone, then shadows were placed over it using the 120 palette. Brows are filled in with the lighter shade first, then the darker shade in the arch to the tail.

Maybelline Fit Me Liquid Foundation- 115

Nyx Baked Blush- Sugar Mama

For my face, I used a self tanner to darken my pale skintone, then primed with Nyx’s Shine Killer to mask oil in my t-zone, followed by the yellow concealer to mask redness. Foundation was added,  then Cover Girl Concealers were patted on to brighten the under eye area, and touch up skin imperfections. Powder was used to set the look, followed by blush, bronzer, and highlighter.
