Today’s Instagram Look

Hello! ❤

So I decided to start writing blog posts with the products and steps that I use in the makeup looks that I post on Instagram, starting from today! I did a rose gold inspired makeup look with the L.A. Girl Nudes eyeshadow palette.


Quick review:

I absolutely love this palette. It’s comprised of some pinky-purpley-mauvey shades (I suck at explaining haha), and I am such a fan of these colours. There are 12 eyeshadows, 3 of which are matte and the rest are all a mixture of beautiful shimmer shades. These currently retail for R99,95 at Dis Chem’s nationwide. Check it out here. That’s a bargain in my eyes! The eyeshadows are incredibly smooth and easy to blend. The lasting power is also pretty impressive as the pigmentation stays on my eyes for quite a long time. The overall quality is incredible for the price you pay, and if you are into rosey-toned, neutral eyeshadows I think you will love this palette as much as I do.

Alright, let’s get straight into it. The products I used for this look will be listed down below in the exact order in which I used them, along with some details about each.



  • Essence Eyebrow Designer in the shade Brown
  • Essence Clear Brow Gel


  • Catrice Cosmetics Camouflage Cream Concealer in the shade Light Beige – to prime my eyelids
  • Rimmel London Stay Matte Pressed Powder in the shade Transparent – to set the concealer
  • Catrice Cosmetics Single Eyeshadow in the shade Peachahontus – transition shade
  • L.A. Girl Eyeshadow Collection in Nudes – I started with blending the matte shades into the crease, and then using the darker shades to deepen the outer corner and crease. I mixed all the rosey-toned shades and packed these onto my lid. I used the Woolworths Face Make-up Finishing Spray to wet my brush and make the shadows more intense.
