Finally doing another look this time with the TFS 4 min smokey eye palette that I mentioned in my TFS haul HERE!
I'll start with the look first then do the review!
Here's how the palette looks like, it is really inexpensive at 24 900KRW
Here's the palette, it comes with 4 shadows, 2 sets of applicators, an eyeliner and a mascara.
I am also very fond of the highlighter shade. It is a shimmery light pink with a gold sheen.
Here's a very basic smokey eye look that I have came up with
I know I should put a better picture but I just couldnt take a good picture of myself today :'(
I'll briefly go through the steps!
1) Line upper and lower lashline with pencil eyeliner, smudge out line and press black eyeshadow onto the line that you have just drawn
It should look something like this. Depending on how dramatic you want the look to be and the shape of your eye, you can choose to thicken/ extend the line.
The reason why I put shadow on the eyeliner is to extend the longevity of the liner and smudge out the line so it looks more smokey.
Also I didn't line the entire length of my lower lashline, because I don't have very big eyes and by lining the entire lower lashline, it would make my eyes appear smaller cos the eye is 'framed' by the liner.
2) Apply lid colour
I also added more black at the outer corner for more depth.
3) Highlight, mascara & falsies
Thats my naked iris staring at you hehe. Not wearing circle lenses for once.
I have been quite into using half lashes instead of full lashes recently. I like how it looks more natural but still gives my lashes the extra boost it needs.
It is really easy to create smokey eye. With any shadows you have it is really easy and quick to recreate this look!
My reviews for this palette
Honestly, I didnt like it.
1) The eye liner smudges too easily
The liner is very soft and pigmented BUT it doesnt set, meaning that it smudges on your lids when you open your eyes. I personally would not use this in Singapore because the humidity plus this eyeliner would be a disaster.
2) The eyeshadows and too soft.
I know it sounds weird describing eyeshadows as soft, but they are. With a consistency like this, it doesnt last on the lids. It might work for those with less oily eyelids. A good eye primer is definitely needed.
I would think this palette would be more suitable for cooler climates simply becuase I dont think that the shadows and liners would be able to withstand the heat and humidity.
I would try this palette out again, give it another shot but I wont be rushing out to get it.
Thats all for now have a good week yall :)
