LOOK: Wet n Wild Smoky Lust

Hey lovelies, remember when I abused the Wet n Wild ColorIcon eye shadow palette in Pride? Well, I gave it a rest for a little while, and I moved on to ColorIcon eye shadow palette in Lust. It consist of matte and shimmery purples, plums and pinks, all pigmented and gorgeous shades!

Just like the ColorIcon palette in Pride, you can do so much with this palette. The first look I did is a sultry and smoky purple and silver grey. It's very dramatic and you can wear this look for any night time event. I would wear this to a party, a night out with the girls and even a date with Kiko. He loves my smoky eyes ^_^.


I used the Wet n Wild ColorIcon eye shadow palette in Lust. I love this palette because it has a mix of shimmery and matte shades to create a well balance makeup look. If you don't have this palette, just use similar colors you already have in your kit.

-Apply MAC Painterly paint pot all over the lids with your finger. This will prime the eyes to make the eye shadow last longer.
-Using Wet n Wild ColorIcon palette in Lust, apply the matte light pink shadow on the brow bone. 
-Apply the matte purple shadow above the crease with a fluffy blending brush. Using a blending brush will deposit the color lightly.
-Apply matte dark purple/plum shadow on the outer V and drag it above the crease stopping half way with a small crease brush. Apply it on the outer half of the lower lash line too. This will help frame the eyes.
-Apply shimmery silver grey shadow on the lids with a shader brush.
-Apply shimmery light pink shadow on the inner corners blending it towards the silver grey and on the inner lower lash line using a pencil brush. This will give the eyes a brighter look.
-Line the upper and lower lash line with Stila Smudge Pot in black using an angled liner brush.
-Curl lashes and apply kkcenterhk ES false lashes in A24

ES false lashes in A24 provided by kkcenterhk. 10 pairs for less than $5. They are so pretty, and the criss-cross lashes creates a dramatic effect on the eyes.

-Clean all the shadow fall out on the face with baby wipe.
-Dot Mark Face Xpert liquid foundation all over the face and blend with a sponge for an even finish.
-Apply Physicians Formula Conceal RX in soft yellow under the eyes and blend well with sponge.
-Set it with Wet n Wild Ultimate Mineral foundation in tan with a fluffy face brush.

-Dust Avon Smooth Minerals in hearty peach on the apple of the cheeks with a stippling brush. I've had this blush for a long time now, and I've forgotten how beautiful it is.

-Line the lips with Wet n Wild lip liner in willow. Love this! It's the perfect nude for my medium skin tone.

Wet n Wild Mega Last lip color in 900B/Pink Suga on my lips. I decided to go for a pale nude lips, so it won't compete with the dark/dramatic eye makeup.

I hope you like it. I will have more makeup looks coming up using Wet n Wild ColorIcon palette in Lust, so watch out for it.
