YSL Glossy Stain & A Soft Matte Eye

This is a breakdown of the look I posted in my Firmoo Glasses Review--feel free to read that here! I've been really loving doing all matte eye looks with very glowy skin and a glossy lip. I paired various matte brown eyeshadows with YSL Glossy Stain #9--an incredibly beautiful red. Because I kept the eye matte, combining a soft smokey eye with a bright lip worked well instead of competing--a heavy eye and bold lip can sometimes be too much makeup for me on a typical day!

I also have been using an eyelash curler a lot more lately. It's always a step I forget to do when doing my makeup, but I love the eye opening effect when I do remember to use it!!

What kind of makeup have you been wearing lately?!


  1. You look stunning!! Bright lips suit you very well!

  2. I love that matte eye look on you! And the glossy stain is gorgeous long would you say it lasts on you? xx

  3. Thank you so much, Itzi! Bright reds are so fun :)

  4. Thank you!! The glossy stain lasts quiet a long time--they stay glossy for 4-5 hours and stay stained for a few more. I get crazy wear time out of them, I hardly ever have to touch up!

  5. Aw thank you so much!! Yeah I assumed an all matte eye would look kind of flat and boring, but I've been loving it!

  6. that lip color is amazing on you! now I think I need to get it...

  7. i wish i had the guts to wear a lip color like that! and i never used to curl my lashes but now that ive invested in a curler, it is like ive discovered a whole new world of eyelash possibilities! :P
