Look Book 3 | Simple & Bold

Apr 2, 2018


I put together a very simple yet bold look using two recently reviewed items - Pat McGrath Platinum Bronze (reviewed) & Givenchy Le Rouge Framboise Velours (reviewed). 



Givenchy Framboise Velours N315 look swatch

There is something velvety and slightly greyed-out quality to Givenchy Framboise Velours (well, the name kind of says it), which is why I find this bold color more wearable than other berry lip colors I own. 

Pat McGrath Platinum Bronze look swatches

I didn't want my eye makeup to look too dramatic but still glamorous enough to match the deep jewel-toned lips. The shimmery olive color from Platinum Bronze (Telepathic Taupe) was used all over the lids and darkest matte shade (Deep Velvet) to define the outer corners. I lined my lower lashes with the shimmery bronze in the palette (Sextrovert). You can see the swatches here



I prefer a sheer luminous base when I wear full-bodied lip colors so I opted for a tinted moisturizer aided with a primer and highlighting powder.
  • Rouge Bunny Rouge Tinted Moisturizer (Sketches On Water) is a lovely formula and the shade Adansonia is a great match for me. 
  • Rouge Bunny Rouge Skin Perfector Serene Light is something I'd purchase a full bottle of. This tinted primer works nicely even by itself for a sheer even complexion. 
  • I applied Rouge Bunny Rouge Highlighting Powder in Goddess all over. I am still loving the subtle glow of Goddess and using it on a regular basis. Reviewed and swatched here.
  • Rouge Bunny Rouge Eye Primer Pristine Light provides a great coverage and foundation for eyeshadows but I see the sponge tip inside isn't a good match for the formula. I will talk about this in a dedicated post soon. (Speaking of Rouge Bunny Rouge, they are currently having a Friends & Family Season Sale.) 
  • The Sleek Pomegranate is pictured here but I forgot to use it. It would have warmed up the complexion nicely.



Thanks for looking! Hope you enjoyed this look post. Let me know if you have any question.

    1. The lipstick is really nice quality both in color and application. I wish I hadn't forgotten the blush - I didn't mean to look pale like this. ;p

  3. Oh I love the lipstick on you! I haven't tried any of the makeup you used here! I wanted to explore RBR more, but their shipping to my country is rather pricey. I love your Face Tray series, Lena. Beautiful looks!

    1. Thank you for your encouragement!
      If I am not mistaken, RBR ships free worldwide with a reasonable minimum (50 euros). They are having a 20% off sale right now. It'd be a good time to explore if you're interested. :)

    2. 50 euros is more than 200 in my currency! But yes, I have a few on my wishlist, so I'll watch out for the next sale :-)

  4. Wow, the bold lip colour is so beautiful! I like that you chose a minimal and neutral eye palette with the Framboise Velours—very elegant! /Madison
