Two Looks with Kiko Water Eyeshadows and Long-Lasting Stick Eyeshadows

My choices of jewelled shades of Water Eyeshadow (swatch/review) seemed to pair naturally with the warmer metallics from the Long-Lasting Eyeshadow Sticks (swatch/review), so here are two looks highlighting each aspect.

1. Kiko Long-Lasting Eyeshadow Stick in 04 Golden Brown taken up to the socket and 06 Golden Chocolate to line upper lashline and outer third of lower lashline, smoked outwards. Water Eyeshadow 225 Indigo Blue, used dry, over the inner two-thirds of the eye. RBR Eye Kohl in Salome to line, Fasio Ultra Curl Lock Volume mascara.

Paired with unobtrusive blush and gloss: Rouge Bunny Rouge Gracilis and Korres Cherry Oil Natural Purple.



2. Kiko Water Eyeshadow 225 Indigo Blue foiled (used wet) over the lid, and 223 Eggplant Purple (also used wet) blended onto the outer third of the lid and to line to outer third of the lower lashline. Eyeshadow Stick 06 Golden Brown to accent lower lashline. Slight flick with KATE Super Sharp Liquid Liner S in BK-1.

Again with the understated cheeks and lips; Gracilis again, but the lips taken down a notch to counterbalance the metallic eye: Addiction Day Trip, a sheer jelly peach.

  5. I always fall in love with every single look you do. I actually think we have a very similar eye shape so I'm off to try and recreate that first (ok, AND second) look that you did asap!! :P I so wish you did videos, Kate!

  12. Kate, as always you look beautiful!

    I'm sorry to hear the Water E/S weren't playing ball - from the gorgeous looks you've posted I would never have guessed that they were problematic! A testament to your skill, no doubt - the blue in particular looks fab on you.

    So glad you like the Sticks though. They need more shades!

    Also, I miss you :****

  16. I am so happy you did these posts on Kiko - I am currently in Milano where Kiko stores seem to be popping up on every street corner! In San Babila, the huge Sephora was empty while Kiko was packed to the gills, so I went in & was overwhelmed by the options (and the girls squealing). The shadow sticks look just up my alley.

    Of course no need to say that the looks you created are incredibly flattering for you & so inspiring for the rest of us. Thank you!

    1. I love hearing beauty news from around the world! It sounds like the San Babila store is much like the Westfield one in London, which I don't plan on revisiting -- somehow my tolerance for tween squealing isn't what it used to be (when I was a tween squealer...)

  17. Well done - I love both looks... I've got to learn how to blend like you!!

  18. I love both looks but the blue eye look is a big winner! I still need a blue like this, it seems to suit your brown eye colour so well :). I've been following you a while now and the new hair cut is amazing!
