. . . Sunrise, Sunset



    Another off-day, another look. I guess now my more eccentric looks are confined to off-days that I probably spend a large part of at home doing and shooting impractical makeup. Anyway, this time I'm using my newly-acquired Essence All About Sunrise palette and KATE Deep Shiny Eyes PU-1 for a season-inappropriate dark look.

    新的一天休假日,來篇新妝容文吧!我想現在我比較誇張的妝容都只能留到休假日來嘗試了,所以休假日常常有一大半時間都賴在家裡化些不日常的妝然後自拍自嗨這樣 XDD  這次使用了新入手的Essence All About Sunrise眼影盤跟KATE的深瞳調色眼影盒PU-1畫了個不合季節的暗色系眼妝。



    I must admit this Essence eyeshadow palette is a steal, considering the performance at its price point. It is in powder form, but the application is so smooth it almost feels creamy. The colour payoff is great overall, although the orange shade is really not half as vibrant as what the official website portrays. Other than the darkest shade (which is more of a satin finish), each colour has a lovely shimmer finish that plays out beautifully to light. The con, however, is that the eyeshadows are fallout-prone, especially that orange shade, and there's no applicator included (though if you are used to using brushes then this shouldn't be a problem).

     我要大推Essence這盤眼影,c/p值超高的啊啊啊!雖然是粉狀,但是上手超綿密滑順的。整體顯色度也不錯,不過下排橘色那個完全沒有官網照那麼鮮艷亮麗就是了。除了最深色那格比較偏半霧面質感,其他都有超美的珠光光澤,在光線下的變幻效果很棒。不過這盤缺點是會飛粉,尤其橘色那格,然後眼影盤也沒附任何眼影棒(雖然如果平時習慣用眼影刷的話這應該不是大問題)。



    These are the shades that are used in this look. I was originally intending to use only the Essence palette, but the darkest shade in there wasn't dark enough for what I had in mind. So I turned to the KATE palette -- that brown shade there is crazy pigmented, and much darker than what it looks like in the pan. I was a bit taken aback by how dark it is the first time I swatched it, to be honest.

    這些是這次使用到的顏色。其實原本只打算用Essence那盤,不過裡面那格最深色對我來說還不夠深,於是向KATE這盤求助。KATE這盤那格棕色真的超深的,遠比外表看起來深色。老實說第一次試色的時候有點驚訝原來這麼深色 XD



    1.  Apply A over eyelids.
   
    1.  先用A上在整個上眼皮。



    2.  Apply B starting from the inner corner of the eyes and work it towards the center.
    3.  Apply C from the outer corner of the eyes and dab towards the center.
    4.  Blend between the colours, layering more eyeshadow till you get the desired vibrancy.

    2.  從眼頭上B,並且往中間暈開。
    3.  接著從眼尾上C,一樣往眼部中間暈開。
    4.  在兩色交接處用眼影刷把色塊暈開,並且疊擦補強兩邊的眼影直到足夠飽和。



    5.  Apply D over the outer 1/3 of eyelid, layer on E to add further depth to the outer corner.
    6.  Dab on F from the inner corner, working gradually towards the inner 1/4 of eyelid.
    7.  Similarly, blend between the colours and layering on as needed.

    5.  在眼尾1/3處疊擦D,再疊上E來更加強調眼尾的深度。
    6.  在眼頭疊擦F,先用少量眼影慢慢疊擦,範圍大概是眼頭1/4的部分。
    7.  一樣用眼影刷把色塊界線均勻暈開,必要的話再疊上眼影補強色彩。



    8.  For the lower lid, apply the colours as shown, starting from the inner corner.
    9.  Blend between the colours as you work towards the outer corner.

    8.  下眼皮的部分,如圖所示從眼頭依次上色。
    9.  每增加一色記得用眼影刷暈開兩色交界處。
   


    Add in black eyeliner and mascara and you are set to go (eyes-wise, that is)! As I want a bit of a sharp dramatic effect, I decided not to blend out the upper edge of the eye makeup.

    最後加上黑色眼線跟睫毛膏,眼妝的部分就完成囉!然後因為我想要有點界線分明的俐落妝感,所以就沒有去把上眼皮ㄑ字部位的眼妝界線給暈開了。




    Sorry, the 2nd photo is a bit inaccurate in regards to the colour placements as I suspect the shimmery and reflective nature of the Essence colours had rendered the orange almost whitish gold when it caught the light streaming in from the side (I will post an Instagram video on this tomorrow if my 4G allows it ... failed several attempts to load today  : (  ). Anyway, I especially love how the colours look when you lower your eyes, a bit mysterious like the skies in between sunset and nightfall  <3

    對不起第二張全妝照的眼影顏色分配其實有點不準確。我懷疑是因為Essence那盤眼影的珠光效果讓橘色的眼影遇上從旁邊照射進來的光時瞬間反光成略淡金的顏色(如果明天手機網速沒問題的話會在IG po個示範這眼影珠光的影片,今天試了幾次都失敗了 orz)。不過我很喜歡這個眼妝垂眼時的效果,大概是介於日落跟初更之間的神祕色彩  <3



    Here's the *very short* video. The purple shade is from the KATE palette and the rest are Essence's. You can see that the glitter bits in the purple shade are chunkier, also it took about 4 finger swatches to reach the opacity on my hand compared to 2 swatches with the other shades. You can also see that the orange shade sorta looks more like pale gold when the light hits it straight on.

    這是極短的影片噢!主要是讓大家看最下那個橘色,光從正面打下來他就完全變淡金色了 XDD  另外那個紫色就是KATE那盤的,可以看出它的顆粒感比較大一些,而且相較其他三色只需要用手指刷兩次就達到手上的飽和度,那個紫色我刷了四次哈哈



    As usual, I'm ending the post with a medley of Instagram pics ( @bonjourjasmineblog ), I'm positively giddy over my recent THREE Sakuraism haul (top row center) ... all those lovely pinks just evoke that warm happy spring mood.

    照例來個Instagram近期照片(帳號 @bonjourjasmineblog)的拼圖當結尾,真的超愛最近THREE櫻花限定的戰利品啊啊啊(上排中間)... 粉嫩的色彩好有春天的愉悅氛圍 <33




Bises!
