Saphire Siren Quad Tutorial

I did a look today using my new Saphire Siren Maybelling Eyestudio quad. :) Here it is!

(Wtf, since when have I had a dimple?)

So, what I used:

- Moisturiser
- Inglot Under Make-up Base
- Laura Mercier Silk Creme foundation in Soft Ivory
- MAC Studio Finish concealer in NC15
- Random L'oreal blush (light pink, undertone coral)
- MAC Beauty Powder in Summer Rose (from Give Me Liberty of London)
- MAC transparent finishing powder
- Guerlain Meteorites in Teint Rose

- MAC paint in Bare Canvas
- MAC Shimmermoss eyeshadow
- Maybelline Eye Studio in Saphire Siren
- MAC Eye Kohl in Float on By (from To the Beach)
- Clinique Mascara
- 1000 hour Lashes in Wild Damsel (used with DUO lash glue)
- MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack

- MAC lipstick in Snob

Brushes I used
- Stippling Brush from inglot
- Ecotools kabuki and blush brush
- MAC 217
- MAC 219
- MAC 239
- Thin eyeliner brush (I use one from inglot)

For the eyes, apply your base; I use MAC bare canvas paint (sometimes painterly paint pot when I'm not going out for 5+ hours). Apply shimmermoss e/s to the inner third of the lid using the 239. Apply the Maybelline light teal (second from left) to the middle of the lid with the 239. Blend with the shimmermoss lightly. Apply the sea blue (second from right) to the outer third of the lid, blending lightly upwards, also with the 239. If you need to, add a bit more blue, but blending upwards towards the brow bone, and blending lightly across the crease. If you need to, use the 217 to blend more. Apply the shimmery white shadow (first on the left) to the inner corner with the 219, blending upwards towards the blue in the crease. Also apply slightly on lower lash line. Apply shimmermoss e/s on the 1/3 of the lower lash line, then the teal in the middle, then the sea blue on the outer third, making sure to connect with the blue on the lid. Apply your gel eyeliner on the upper lash line, then curl lashes and apply mascara. Then apply false lashes. Apply Snob lipstick by MAC to lips, and your choice of coral/pink blush to cheeks.


Hope it was enjoyable (and readable!).
