Royal Effem Makeup: Into the Deep Blue Sea (LOTD)
How’s your summer so far? It’s been crazy hot here in the Philippines lately so I thought of doing a makeup look that can make our hot summer days a bit cooler. It’s also dedicated to everyone headed to the beach this long weekend. (humph. *bitter*) :))
Let me introduce to you a recent discovery of mine~ Royal Effem: an Italian Makeup brand created by Laboratori Royal. I’m sure most of you haven’t heard of it yet but it is already available at some high-end salons in Manila. You can check out their Facebook Page for more products.
The makeup used for my Into the Deep Blue Sea look are the following:
EYES: Royal Effem Eyeshadow #221 | Royal Effem Velvet Kohl Eyeshadow #007
(L-R) Eyeshadow swatch (without eye primer) Velvet Kohl Eyeshadow swatch
Both products are eyeshadows and are very easy to apply; non-smudge and silky finish but the Velvet Kohl one is darker and more intense compared to the ordinary eyeshadow.
I super love the Velvet Kohl liner because you can use it as an eyeliner too. The #007 shade is very unique and won’t be too awkward to use as an eyeliner since it’s not too far from the typical black eyeliner shade.
LIPS: Royal Effem Totally Gloss in LU21
The owner of Royal Effem was kind enough to recommend this shade to me since I told her about my plum lipstick obsession. Since I had tons of dark lippies already, she chose LU21, a combination of lavender and pink.
The color is wearable during day or night and is easy to pair with different eyeshadow shades. I love the texture of Royal Effem lipsticks because they’re not too sheer nor thick or sticky. They’re very milky and has a light vanilla scent.
Normally, smokey blue eyes would make me look fierce but combined with my Freshlook Colorblends Turquoise contact lenses and lavander lipstick, I can pull off a damsel in distress face. *hee*
Always remember to balance your makeup if you’re not used to wearing dark makeup. If you have smokey eyes, wear light or nude colored lipstick. But if you’re confident enough to go out with hot red lips and dark smokey eyes, go for it! No one’s stopping you. ;)
I hope you enjoyed my short makeup review and LOTD. Enjoy the long weekend! :-)
