Face of the day: Balearic Love and Smoke

I was browsing through Becca’s website (www.beccacosmetics.com), because I heard rumors that they had released a new foundation; And indeed they did.

Putting aside my foundation lemmings, I was peeking at their new looks for winter, when I was reminded about a look that I had promised myself to attempt: Balearic Love (check the look: http://www.beccacosmetics.com/eu/get-the-look/balearic-love/).

I know, I know…its quite late to be doing such a summery look, but as you can see in the final result, the look is very well suited for Fall/Winter. If you are bold, pair it with plum statement lips.




You can go as bold or as subtle as you wish with this look. I used just 1 product from Becca. An important note I want to highlight here: The brows should be a bit messy. Fill in a bit the gaps, some clear gel, and thats it.
