♕ Make Up Look ~ Crystal Flames ♕
{Feat. Nabla Cosmetics ~ Dreamy Eyeshadow Palette}

In my latest post I've talked about the Dreamy Eyeshadow Palette aka NABLA Cosmetics' first eyeshadow palette ever - which, by the way, it's still sold out; I know a lot of you (and myself as well) were hoping/expecting it to be restocked in time for Black Friday, but unfortunately that didn't happened and there's still no restock date yet.
Anyway, here's another makeup look I made using exclusively the Dreamy palette - which ended up being slightly festive, despite I wasn't going for a Christmas-y look at all XD

~ Special thanks to Marta who suggested me "Crystal Flames" as name for this look!
Much appreciated - and really appropriate ♥

My main goal with this look was to use and show more shades from the Dreamy - as in the very first look I did with it I used just three. That previous look was very dark, so I wanted this one to be way brighter and warmer - so I went for the gold and red shades, and I decided to use the 'round cut crease' style to really show off the gold as it is stunning.
So needless to say all the eyeshadows I used this time are by NABLA and almost all of them come from the Dreamy palette; everything else is about the same, as always, but I did include another new entries - some new glitters I recently got from The Unicorn Glitter Box.

As I usually do in this kind of makeup looks, after priming my lids I started working on the crease blending straight away. One thing I've been also doing a lot lately is to apply my brow bone shade at the very beginning of the process, so I applied Antique White and then moved on to the crease shade. I applied Señorita all over my crease and outer corner, blending it as I went; one this I like the most of this eyeshadow, aside from its gorgeous shade, is its amazing 'blendability': so easy to blend, to the point it doesn't even need a transition colour. I know it looks like I blended it with a pale pink shade - but guess what, none of this: that is just the result of blending it ♥
Once I was happy with the crease & outer corner blending, I used a little bit of foundation to clean the lid and carve the rounded shape. Done that, I applied Byzantine over the foundation (once it set), following the half circle I created on my lid.
I decided to use different shades for my lower lid, so I used Rose Gold as main colour and blended it using Sistina; later I defined my lower lashline using Nocturne as usual.
Last but not least, I used the beautiful Vanitas as my inner corner highlighter.
I wasn't unsure whether to add eyeliner or not - but then I decided to go for it, so I used the Epic Ink Liner in Black by NYX Professional Makeup to draw a simple, classical winged line.
To add a fun, sparkling touch to this look, I decided to use some glitters: I applied them around the half circle shape - I went for some small, not chunky ones with subtle reflects, Rainbow Seas by The Unicorn Glitter Box.
And that's it, essentially; all I had left to do was applying a black eyepencil on my waterline, then falsies and mascara.
