Hi, everyone! It's time for the second installment of my Australian drugstore makeup Look of the Day series, featuring the lovely Down Under goodies I received in a recent international swap. It's been such a pleasure trying everything out! Today's look focuses on shimmery, subtly sultry lids and a full-on cool red lip!
For the eyes, I used the amazing Chi Chi Glamorous Nudes eye shadow palette, a Naked Palette dupe that's quality is top-notch. I focused on the right side of the palette, which features deep, shimmery cool browns and greys. They blend so nicely! I added touches of gold and champagne to add some light to the look.
On the lips is a stunning new lipstick from the Australian brand, Ulta 3. Cherry Wine is a gorgeous full-bodied, satiny cool berry red that is perfect for a bold, but totally wearable pout. The formula leaves lips slick and comfortable and the wear time is impressive! Since the lips and eyes were on the bolder side, I opted for a subtle nude cheek, courtesy of Australis Blush in Sand Dune.
Here's a shot of the Australian drugstore products I used in this look:
