Blackheart

31 May, 2015


At this point you may already know that I love a good purply smokey eye, specially with some sparkle on it. I cracked out my Naked 3 Palette and just before going on with a natural look I glanced at the shade Blackheart and wondered why I never wear it by itself. I came up with this makeup and paired it with bold and glossy lips. 

A estas alturas puede que ya sepan que me gustan los ojos ahumados morados, en especial con algo de destello. Saqué mi Naked 3 Palette y justo antes de seguir con un look natural, me fijé en la sombra Blackheart y me pregunté por qué nunca la he usado sola. Terminé con este maquillaje y lo acompañé de unos labios intensos y glossy.





What I like about Blackheart is that even though it looks almost like black as you apply it, it definitely shows up as purple on photographs. You can consider this if you're going to have pictures taken whenever you wear this eyeshadow. For a little contrast, I used a deep pink lipstick above a reddish lip liner to make it brighter, then I followed up with a bright pink lip gloss, turning up into a very summer appropriate bold lip. 

Lo que me gusta de Blackheart es que a pesar de verse casi como negro cuando la aplicas, definitivamente se ve morada en fotografías. Puedes considerar esto si vas a tomarte fotos cuando uses esta sombra. Para agregar un poco de contraste, usé un labial rosa obscuro encima de un lápiz de tono rojizo para hacerlo más chillante, después seguí con un gloss rosa vivo, resultando en unos labios bold muy apropiados para el verano.

  1. The eye makeup looks gorgeous! I've used blackheart as a liner colour before, but never all over the lid. I may need to try this for my next night out :)

  3. What a gorgeous makeup look! I love warm browns in the crease and a shimmery gold or bronze on the eye, but recently I've been loving these cooler toned smokey eyes.
