♕ Pantone Inspired ~ Rose Quartz & Serenity MakeUp ♕
{Feat. Nabla Cosmetics ~ Potion Paradise Collection}

Third look I made using the Potion Paradise Collection by NABLA Cosmetics - just in part this time though! I've always wanted to do a makeup look using the Rose Quartz and Serenity Pantone colours, and I felt like this was the time to try it! I used both Crème Shadows and pressed eyeshadows by NABLA to achieve this look! 

Since Petite Mélodie looks cooler on me (and this is enhanced by the ring light) I thought it could easily play the role of Serenity for this makeup - while for the Rose Quartz role I decided to use Christine, another Crème Shadow released about one year ago. I think hey both worked pretty well, it's such a nice and sweet colour combination... Let me now what you think! ♥

The other Crème Shadow used were Morning Glory (since I'm still testing it as eyeprimer - and so far I'm loving it) and Rea as eyeliner. The remaining shades were all pressed eyeshadows (a handful from the Mermaid Collection), which really completed the all look so wonderfully. 

I started off by applying Morning Glory all over my lids as eye base (the Shadow Insurance eyeprimer is happily enjoying a small holiday XD) and, once it dried, I applied Christine on about two/thirds of the lid. On the remaining part I applied Petite Mélodie, gently blending it into Christine is an oblique way.
I did the same on the lower lid - the only difference being that I used less of Christine and more of Petite Mélodie, kind of reversing what I did on the upper lid. On the inner corner I applied Sensuelle - haven't been using it for a while and I was really, really missing it! On the lashline I applied a soft, barely noticeable touch of Juno Moon - which ended up being overcame by the black eye kohl. Whoops.

On the crease area I applied Lilac Wonder first, and then Selfish over it (such an adorable mix, let me tell you). I gently blended them outwards, creating a soft C shape on the outer corner. I used Narciso (yes, as always) as transition shade, paired with Antique White on the brow bone.

After that, I applied Rea as eyeliner, using the same old (and discontinued) fine-pointed eyeliner brush. I was about to use black, to be honest, but it thought the result would be a little too harsh... And I wanted this to be a dainty, delicate make up - so I went for Rea, which is dark but not as mush as a pure black shade. 100% happy with my choice!

I applied a black eyepencil on my waterline/lashline (probably a purple eyepencil would look better though), then I completed the look by applying false lashes and mascara, and by defining my eyebrows. And we are done!

I know it's a bit late for a Rose Quartz + Serenity inspired look (since these shade were revealed to be 2016 Colour(s) of the Year, like, one year ago) but... Better late than never, I guess! ;D 

Personally, I love how pretty this look turned out - even better than how I pictured it in my mind! I was a little afraid to combine cream eyeshadows with powder ones - worrying that they would not get along (I mean, because of my skills, since I'm more versed and used to work with powders). But I had no problem at all, actually, so if you have the same fear... Don't worry and go ahead, give it a try!
