This was really inspired by a recent video I saw shared by Vegas Nay’s Instagram – using the age old saviour of the tape trick, you create defined lines (bit like wings, but ta-da no eyeliner, your own skin), and some fab blending in natural tones. I used the same colour palette as the video did: three shades of neutrals, then a copper (perfect for blue eyes!) glitter on the centre of the lid.
For the rest of my face I went for a heavier look with well-primed skin and eyelids, full contouring, and plumped lips. To balance that out, I eased up on my highlighter, keeping it dew-y, rather that incandescent.

Overall, I was super pleased with the look and excited to try out more looks with the tape 🙂
