♕ Make Up Look ~ Moon's Reflection ♕

Today's look is one of my favourite out of my most recent ones: I created it specifically to try out a couple of products: first of all, one of the new shades from the new Freedomination collection by NABLA Cosmetics - Freestyler. It really intrigued me, so I decided to make a look where it could stand out. Also, I wanted to test the Epic Ink Liner by NYX Cosmetics I recently got in a PR package; it has great feedback so I was so curious to see if it was worth the hype (spoiler: yes, it is! *_*).
Although not having any specific idea (I basically created it as I went) it turned out sooo pretty and dreamy, I love it ♥

Today's "technique" (so to speak) is halo eyes with a partial cut crease - meaning the highlight is on the middle of the lid, and that the cut crease it's focused only on the centre. The end result reminded me so much of the moon shining on the sea at night - and that's why I named it 'moon's reflection'.

As I said I wanted Freestyler to be the main shade, so I used it for the halo - must say, it's such a gorgeous shade! I've been dreaming of a light blue shade like this for ages *-*
The Epic Ink Liner also debuted with this look and it is a new favourite of mine - so far I positively think that it is as good as Kat Von D's Tattoo Liner in Trooper! Same fine brush applicator, highly performing formula - slightly darker and glossy, the tip doesn't tend to clog like Trooper's. 

First of all, after priming my lids, I created the crease blending: I used Blue Velvet by NABLA as main shade, applying it all over the crease area, outer corner and lower lid. I blended it with Boo Berry by Makeup Geek Cosmetics, to achieve a smooth blending and C shape on the outer corner. As transition shade, to complete the blending, I used Fossil by NABLA.
Once I was done and satisfied with the intensity of the blending, I carved out the half-cut crease using my foundation (Pro Longwear NW15 by MAC Cosmetics): I used a small lip brush to apply the foundation and thus both clean the lid area and also cut the crease. I let it dry for a couple of seconds, then I applied Freestyler all over it - keeping the shape very sharp on the crease area, but gently blended on the corners. Then I added a little bit of Frozen by NABLA right on the center of the halo, just to brighten it up.

Now the fun part - the graphic liner - as I said, I used the Epic Ink Liner in Black by NYX Cosmetics. First of all I did a pretty basic winged line, then I added two 'flicks' on both the outer wing and the inner corner - the first going upwards, the second going downwards. I filled this small areas with Virgin Island by NABLA, just to add a little bit of sparkles to this look!
At this point I was pretty much done: I applied a black eyepencil on my waterline, defined my lashline with a black eyeshadow, applied a cream shadow on my brow bone and, lastly, I applied false lashes and mascara.
