BN Beauty: Get This Look – “Shimmery Darkness” by ThatIgboChick



BN Beauty Get The Look - BellaNaija - June2013003Hi BN Beauty gals. So, I was surfing the Internet yesterday and I found this great make up tutorial by Nigerian beauty blogger Chidimma Umeh on her blog ThatIgboChick’. The last time we saw Chidimma she was showing us how to to define our eyebrows but today, she will be showing us how to get this gorgeous look. I hereby dub it “Shimmery Darkness”

This make up look is great for a Friday night out with the girls or even a date. It has a bright shimmery silver eye shadow, a lightly highlighted face and deep lipstick in the colour Egg Plant. If you have a lighter complexion you could try toning down your lip colour to a light pink or nude so it doesn’t look too harsh against your skin. You could also try a darker eye shadow colour instead of the silver so it stands out.

I love how simple yet dazzling this look is. What do you guys think? Is it a look you would wear?

    Gorgeous gal…. One thing though (actually, 2 things). First, I’m a little skeptical about applying glue to the skin of the eyes, that’s an area that’s quite sensitive and I’m curious as to how the glue comes off when the make-up is being removed. Would you need to use an extra-moisturizing/extra-sensitive eye make up remover?

    Secondly, what’s the name of the song playing in the background?

    Very Nice but to be honest I cant wear so much of makeup, it always feels like I have a mask on……….Cant rock/wear this look but I always seriously admire girls that could pull of this kinda makeup.

    Wow, I see some friends look like this but never bothered to learn how to apply makeup like this; I be think say na small work. Omo I doubt I wud be able to blink my eyes if I apply all these, the eye will be too heavy for me to carry around. Omo, women we dey try oh. More power to those that go to great lengths to look like this, God bless una hustle. Henceforth I shall know not to envy you. lol

    I really need to lean how to do this. I see so many people look so elegant and ‘together’ even at 5pm, and I just admire them. Eyeshadow has never been my thing,but I cant help loving the way it comes out. Let me try this,be right back..
