Here’s my second installment of my food inspired makeup series: peach cobbler! I’ve been dying to do a peachy type of look for a while, so I challenged myself to do one without the Sweet Peach palette, because that would make it too easy, right?
I decided to go with an even better palette: The Nubian 2 palette from Juvia’s Place. You might be noticing a theme with these palettes, because they’re the only two high quality palettes that I own. But, until the big bucks start rolling in and I can buy more palettes, you’ll be seeing a lot more of these palettes. I promise to keep all the looks versatile and unique! Without further ado, let’s start with the tutorial.
After putting on eye shadow primer to help the colors pop a little bit more, I started off with the shade Morocco along the crease of my eyelid. Even though this color was closer to orange, it was the closest thing I could find to a peachy type of shade, so we gon’ make it work! I also used the shade Madagascar as a transition color beneath my eyebrows and to tone down Morocco just a bit.
Using an angled eyeliner brush, I then went in with my LA Girl Pro concealer to carve out the cut crease. I realized later on that this wasn’t really a necessary step since I ended up putting shadow over the crease, but it still helped the overall look come out just a bit neater.
Then for the fun part! I gently patted on the colors Nefertiti, Nairobi, and Zuri to my eyelid. I absolutely love shimmer shades and these colors went on perfectly. For the bottom lashline, I went in with an orange eyeliner and smudged it out with Morocco.
So just to switch things up, I decide to try baking for the first time today. I used the Covergirl professional loose finishing powder in translucent fair. I’m not super fond of the smell of this powder, but it’s good for a beginner such as myself. As the powder was setting, I went ahead and lined my eyes with my trustworthy Maybelline Eyestudio gel eyeliner in black and did my lashes with Maybelline mega plush mascara. Quick side note: please don’t be cheap like me and keep using the same eyeliner for over 4 years. Makeup does have an expiration date and it’s not healthy to use it past that date, especially with eye products. So as much as I loved my gel eyeliner, I finally had to cough up the $11 to replace it.
After I brushed off the setting powder and added highlight, I finished the look with my Too Faced melted liquid lipstick in the shade Chihuahua.
And here’s the finished look! I can’t tell you guys how much I really love these Juvia’s Place palettes. The amount of looks that you can do with them are endless. Who would have known it was possible to do a peachy eye look without having to drop over $40 on a peach palette?
