YSL Aqua Ocean Eyes Tutorial

Hi Bellas,

I'm back with another tutorial!  Today I did a really pretty aqua/teal look that reminds me of something I'd wear on yacht vacationing in Ibiza, he he.  The colors are reminiscent of the ocean and sand.


I used the YSL Mauresque Palette to create this look.  It's a pretty easy tutorial and great for a night out.

This is the YSL palette I used.  As you can see, it has a gorgeous blend of colors:  a vibrant aqua, marine blue, bronze, and a shimmery gold highlighter.  The bronze shimmer on the outside is actually more of a decorative dusting which comes off with a few swipes.  The palette is actually inspired by tiles found in Morocco.
Check out my video tutorial!


This was my first time ever trying out a makeup product from YSL.  I'm definitely impressed with the quality of the shadows.  The only thing that I didn't like about it was that the blue shadow was a little hard to reach since it's in a tight spot.  The yellow/gold color and bronze colors are absolutely amazing!  The Lancome Artliner seems similar to the L'Oreal Carbon Liner that everyone loves.  It's probably one of the original versions.  I like the really dark, inky look it gives but I notice the liner takes a few seconds longer to dry so be careful with that.

The final look!

Here's What I Used:
FACE
MAC Prep & Prime
MAC Lightful Moisturizer
MAC Studio Tech NC43
MAC Select Sheer Pressed Powder NC40
Tarte Medium/Deep Dark Circle Defense Concealer
Jemma Kidd Bronze Perfection Bronzer
MAC Pearl Matte Face Powder
Jemma Kidd Dewey Glow All Over Radiance Cream

EYES
Steelo Eyeshadow Base in Medium
YSL Mauresque Palette
Lancome Art Liner
MAC Soft Brown shadow
MAC Brow Pencil in Lingering
MAC Feline Kohl Pencil
Shisem Lashes

LIPS
Balmshell Lipgloss in That's So 80's
I picked out this palette as well as the Lancome Art Liner from a new site called www.BeFlurt.com.  The company is similar to sites like BeautyTicket or AllCosmeticWholesale where you can fine a lot of name brand cosmetics at a discount rate.  They also have limited edition collections which are hard to find.

Brands include MAC, Chanel, Bobbi Brown, Clinique, Smashbox, Lancome, Estee Lauder and more.  The company is very interested in what the viewers want, and plan to continually add products to their site.

To show you the savings, the YSL Palette I selected originally retailed for $57 but the site sells it for $21.99.  Great deal right?  These are authentic products...packaging may be slightly worn but the products are unused an intact.  

Use the promo code renren until May 31st to get you 15% off orders of $30 or more.

Lastly, BeFlurt is hosting a contest giving away a $75 gift certificate for their site.  Check out the contest here.  Good luck!

Soooo pretty ren! I kinda dont like it when eyeshadows overlap each other in a palette like the one you used. Its pretty but its so difficult to get the colors out.
