FOTD: Chanel Noirs Obscurs Les Folies Noirs & L'oreal Shady HIP Racy Concentrated Shadow Duo

Yea, I got the Chanel Noirs Obscurs Palette to work for me! I do have to say it requires a lot of work to get the color to show up nicely. By working slowly, buffing in the shadows into place and a neutral base, I think it de-emphasizes the greyness to the Noirs Obscurs eye shadow palette. I'm also mixing it up with high end and low end. I use a little bit of L'oreal, Bonne Bell, MAC and Chanel. I'm no brand or drugstore snob ;)

As well, I'm skipping the basic face stuff since it's the same as in my last FOTD. Sorry, no close up closed eye pictures. They were all blurry, I wish I had steadier hands! ;)

What I used:
Urban Decay Primer Potion
MAC Paint Pot, Painterly
L'oreal HIP Concentrate Shadow Duo, Racy 836
Chanel Noirs Obscrs Les Folies Noirs Quatro Bon, blue and green shades
MAC Mineralize Skin Finish, Soft & Gentle
MAC Eye Shadow, Blanc Type
MAC Kohl Power Eye Pencil, Feline
MAC Zoom Fast Black Lash, Black
MAC Dazzlelash mascara, Black Dazzle

MAC Mineralize Blush, Superdupernatural
MAC Shape & Sculpt Duo, Accentuate/Sculpt

MAC Lipstick, Brave New Bronze
MAC Lustreglass, Love Nectar
Bonne Bell Definer, Ash Rose

Apply a small about of Urban Decay Primer Potion to lids. Using a MAC 242 brush, apply Painterly to entire lids, then blend out edges using a MAC 217. Apply lighter shade of Racy duo using a MAC 239 all over lid. Apply Blanc Type to brow bone using MAC 252. Apply dark blue shade of Noirs Obscurs Palette above the crease using a MAC 226. Define the crease with the green shade of Noirs Obscurs palette and a MAC 219 brush. Smoke out lower lashline with MAC 219 and green shade. Blend out edges. Tightline upper lashline and line waterline with MAC Feline. Curl lashes, apply one coat of MAC Zoom Fast Black lash, followed by one coat of MAC Dazzlelash.

Apply Superdupernatural to cheeks with MAC 129 brush. Apply Sculpt to hollows of cheeks using MAC 225. Apply Accentuate to tip of nose and above cheekbones.

Line lips with Ash Rose, Apply Brave New Bronze and top with Love Nectar.
