Visiting Versailles

I absolutely adore Versailles. It’s gorgeous. And I think it looks gorgeous on the lid.

I used TFSI as a base. Then I put Versailles on the lid and crease, except for the outermost corner of the lid and crease with a taklon lid brush. I took Damask and used an angled eye shadow brush to apply it to the lower lash line, extending the line up and out for a cat eye shape, then inward. I blended very, very softly with a fluffy blender brush. I took a small shader brush and applied All That Glitters to the upper crease and blended again. Finally, I applied Vapour to the browbone with a highlighter brush and a small detail brush for the inner corner of the eye. I used UD’s liquid liner in Perversion along the upper lash line. I used the 24/7 liners in Midnight Cowboy along the lower water line and Baked along the inner lash line. I used MUFE in Matte black along the outer lower lash line. I used my Revlon 104 pencil to define the eyebrows, then a stiff angled eye shadow brush to soften the brow color a bit. Then I topped my lashes off with my favorite mascara combo.

      Love it. Just pure love. Versailles and Damask are so beautiful! I adore the name of the brand, I’m a bit Marie-Antoinette obsessed.

      Maybe I should buy them during my exams. As a little present to encourage myself. :P

      Oh myyy goooood! I love this! Love love loooove! Please excuse me if I copy the way you did this eye make-up because it is so hot.

      • Phyrra

        Thank you Jessi! You flatter me :)

    • Mary Beth

      Your eye makeup looks sultry and rich, and your skin looks flawless. What a great foundation combination for you!

      • http://jeanrosebrock.tumblr.com Jean

        I was just noticing the foundation too; Phyrra, did you finally find the perfect foundation combo??

        • Phyrra

          I’m not sure yet, it’s my first time wearing it. I’m also trying out a new SPF, LaVanile SPF 40, so my face felt really odd.

      • Phyrra

        Thanks Mary Beth! I only dusted a tiny bit of the Porcelain on my cheeks.

      What is the small smudge brush that you use to blend out your upper crease color? All my smudgers are sponges – but I always love your placement, so I must have the brushes you use! Name, link…something? (Anything really. I just need a starting point so I can get my hands on the right brush!)

      You look so radiant! Love Versailles, reminds me of some shades in Meow’s Egyptian collection which I adore. Btw, I have to admit, for a moment I was thinking “I didn’t know she was going to France” :D

      Probably already told you this but I’ll do it again: love your hair with more pink in it!

      • Phyrra

        Thank you so much Keijukainen :)
