Asta Gel Monday - Nude Brown

Hello lovelies,
Considering how much I love collaborating with beauty and makeup brand owners, it is a wonder why I don't do more of it.

Anyway, I am excited to bring you a beautiful, 'smokey' collaboration for the 5 days of this week.
This collabo is with Hegai & Esther and will feature mainly the Asta Gel Liners along with the Hegai & Esther brush set which I received last week. Apart from just reviewing the brush set at the end of the week, I will also include what I use each individual brush for (I bet that is far more exciting than just telling what the ferrules are made of and what each brush is meant for)

The first smokey look is with Nude Brown - the bronzey brown gel liner.

I paired it with my favourite nude lip combo ie. MUD Rose Clay lipstick & Sacred natural lipgloss in Nougat (I still need to review it. It is a beautiful nude lipgloss). I did a mini-video of the 3 main products I used for the look

uhun, still have my hair out. In a bun, I wish I had the patience and courage to wear it down (I will one day I promise)
everyone loves the lip so here is how I achieved it:
Lined the edges generously with Davis brown pencil leaving the centre of the lips
Applied MUD Rose Clay to the centre of the lips blending the edges of the lipstick & liner together
Apply Sacred Nougat lipgloss
Smack lips together and
voila! we are done
I hope you like the look.
Happy Monday to you all (raining over here)
