I need to stop the onslaught of reviews and post a look for my own sanity. I wanted to challenge myself and use all the shades from the Y Facettes Pure Chromatics Eye Collector Palette Nº 14 in one eye look. Before I continue with the rest of the reviews for YSL Arty Stone Collection for Spring 2013, I wanted to show you a look using the products. I like it, and hope you do too! Mr. Geeks sure didn’t.
Mr. Geeks: “Blue eyeshadow. Pft.”
Me: “It’s green.”

Boys: can’t live with them!
Get the Look
For the eyes, wet a brush and pick up Malachite (green) and pat onto the inner 2/3 of the lid and crease, and lower lash line. Next, flip the brush and pick up the Azurite (blue) and apply along the outer lid and crease, and outer 1/3 of the lower lash line. With a crease brush, apply a small amount of matte chocolate brown to the crease to create a soft contour. Next, apply Amethyst (violet) dry with a fluffy blending brush along the crease. Highlight under the brows and inner corners with Fluorite (pink).
Line the top lash line and waterline with a black pencil (YSL Waterproof Eye Pencil in 1 Black Ink), and the bottom waterline with an emerald green pencil (Marcelle Waterproof Eyeliner in Metal Green). Curl your lashes and apply loads of mascara (Annabelle Le Big Show).
For the cheeks, using your fingers, apply Crème de Blush in Nº 9 Rose Quartz on top of the cheekbones and extend up towards the temples and brow bones. Then, apply Crème de Blush in Nº 8 Baby Doll on the contours of the cheeks to sculpt those cheekbones, baby doll!
For the lips, apply two layers of Rouge Pur Couture Vernis à Lèvres in Nº 27 Pêche Cerra-Colla.

Bonus: when one is taking photos and getting annoyed at her hair (and the photo turns out crystal clear, as if it’s begging to be included in the final cut). So here you go. Geekery at its finest.
