Askmewhats Version: "Ruby & Millie" Eyes

Ruby & Millie? What's Ruby & Millie? I've never heard of this brand before til my dear blogger friend Gracie gave me the chance to try this! So far, I am very impressed! Pigmentation is good and colors are wonderful! The palette is super versatile.

This look is created using the Purple eyeshadow from the palette, it came out a bit black but I like the fact that it does not look black nor the name itself...Purple! It looks like there's a bit of everything, yes, deceiving to the eyes but that makes the eyeshadow mysterious! I like it when friends try to guess the eyeshadow shade I'm wearing!

Here's how I mambo and jambo with the
Ruby & Millie Palette

AMW Diagram

Step 1:

Prior to eyeshadow application, use any eyeshadow base of your choice, I've used MAC's Painterly Paintpot for this look.

Using Ruby & Millie's A Decade of Color Night Eyes, use a flat shader brush to pat on the Purple color on the crease area.

Step 2:

Using a blending brush, I swiped on MAC's Heatherette Trio in Hopping, the light pink color to blend in the harshline from the Purple eyeshadow.

Step 3:

Using the white portion of the Maybelline eyeshadow quad, apply the browbone area to create a "pop".

Step 4:

Line the upper lashline with Coastal Scents Gel Liner in Deep Plum.

Step 5:

Line the waterline and lower lashline with Makeup Forever's Aqua Eyes in 1L.

Another way to create a clean smokey eye!

Do not forget to curl your lashes and apply 2 coats of mascara
Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler

Maybelline Volum' Express Cat Eyes in Black

Do not forget to fill in your brows with your choice of brow powder or pencil. I like to create a bit of a thicker brows for smokey looks! Dramatic eyes, that's what I want!

I used MAC's Coquette eyeshadow to fill in the brows for this look.

For the Face:
Maybelline Clear Smooth Liquid Foundation in Natural Buff
Set with MAC's Mineralized Skinfinish in Light

using my favorite Ecotools Kabuki brush

Conceal with Dollface Cosmetics'
Concealer Palette

For the cheeks:
Arezia Palette mixing the light pink blush
with a darker reddish pink one

For the Lips:
NYX Round Lipstick in Tea Rose Top
with Nivea Care Gloss Shine

Tie your hair in a low side ponytail
Wear your favorite dangling earrings
and put on that smile!

I know I've ended up this post with a smile but I feel a bit sad on my friend who's gone through bad customer service. Read on her story by clicking HERE. To all online sellers, or even sellers in general, please... we're not saying "Customers are always right" but please, be nice to us as it does take a lot for us online shoppers to spend money for products we haven't seen in person or touch. I myself is a seller so I know how it feels to be tired at times but please do not let it out to your customers. Happy seller with good character produces happy and satisfied customers!

So on with the happy thoughts!
Keep smilin'
Stay Happy!
Shop smart! :)
