Look Feature: CLIO Professional Art Collection

By Sara Kye · December 26, 2012 · 0 Comments ·

Hello everyone! Long time no LOTD!

Okay, lame phrase but it is truth and I personally haven't worn makeup in a long long time so this is revisiting an older look I had done (okay, not that old, end-november) and didn't get to mention.

After snapping shots of the goodies I got with CLIO Professional's mail, I had all the items out on the vanity and was heading out so I figured, why not try to do a look using all these items!

After all, there was a good variety and it had most of everything covered – eyes, lips, cheeks etc!

For my eyes, of course I went the neutral route, no surprise here!

The Art Shadow Trio that I received does contain two fairly light pearly tones and one charcoal black so it was either soft definition or drama-mama and I wasn't sure I wanted to go the drama way for a quick errand-running day out.

Here's how I used the shades:
I swept the light gold tone all over my lids and actually 'cheated' a little, sweeping a mid-tone brown from another palette to my outer-corner for slight gradiation. I used the pearly-pink shade under my browbone as a highlight and the charcoal black lightly as a definition at the outer-v.

Since I was keeping it light, I tried not to sweep much or hardly any charcoal shade to the crease, keeping the lids 'clean'.

I also used the Turnliner Twisturn in Urban Black for this look.

I quite like how intense and dark it goes on and being a liquid liner, it was an ease to apply.

Though do note that this turnliner does not require a zillion twists before the product is dispensed hence the first time I used it I probably twisted too much out. Oops.

So here's the rest of the look with the Art Blusher, Art Lipstick and Art Lipgloss:

Products Used:

K Palette Liquid Brow Liner in 01
Biore UV Aqua Rich SPF 50 PA+++
KATE Cosmetics Powderless Liquid Foundation
LUV Carat Loose Face Powder (to set)

Urban Decay Primer Potion
CLIO Professional Art Shadow in Forte Gold Black 416
Maybelline Eye Studio Quad in Autumn Spirit (light dab on outer corner)
CLIO Professional Waterproof Turnliner Twisturn in Urban Black
MAC Powerpoint Liner in Engraved

CLIO Professional Art Blusher in Peach 1

CLIO Professional Art Lipstick in Grace Pink
CLIO Professional Art Lipgloss in Glow Orange

I found the Art Lipstick a little too much of a light pink on me, making it seem quite stark for a neutral everyday look but with the gloss over (to tone down the pink-ness), it ended up being a rather pretty combination!

Needless to say, my favorite of the lot would certainly be the blusher. It's the perfect sort of color I would throw on when I have no idea what to use be it on casual or dressy days.

So I believe the next LOTD post wouldn't come anytime too soon so... hope you don't miss seeing my face on here. ha!

Hope everyone had a great Christmas celebration and here's wishing everyone an advanced HAPPY NEW YEAR!
