Extending the olive branch

Application
  1. Buffed foundation all over with large foundation brush. Used first a thin layer of matte mousse to cover under eye area, follow up with color stick over eye area, and any odd imperfections. Using an angled brow brush, filled in my brows with the darker shade of the duo.
  2. Gently tapped face pearls with a medium rounded blush brush just under the cheekbones, following cheekbones upto temple. Using a contour angled face brush, i just swished a little under the face pearls, going just upto the jawline. Blend! Finish forehead, nose, eye area (especially under the eyes to set concealer) and the chin/upper lip area.
  3. The paler green of the cream duo goes on the first 1/2 of the lid, whilst the brown goes onto the outer lid and outer crease. Gently layer Blame The Rain onto the inner 1/2 of lid and lower lash line, and Broken Rules onto the outer lid and outer lower lash line, and gradiating up to the outer crease and lightly above that. Sweep a small amount of Snow Capped under the brow bone. Highlights i've found tend to soften the gradiation above the crease and tends to complete a look, so always use highlighter, whether it's white or a very pale colour. The results are worth it.
  4. Use the brown liner on the outer 1/2 of the top and bottom lash line, following your natural eye shape, no flicks or fancy stuff, just a medium precise line. Connect the brown with the kiwi pencil on the top inner and bottom lash line, making sure to accentuate the inner corner. Finally, use the white on the waterline, up to the tearduct, however if this is uncomfortable, then skip this part. Finally, two coats of mascara to the top and one coat to the bottom lashes. Brush them out with a decent lash comb!
  5. Finally, a good couple of coats of the lippy - no need to use a brush, pencil or gloss.
