Sanaa Lathan Inspired Makeup

Hi Beauties, I saw this look a while ago on Sanaa Lathan and I loved it. It's so simple yet so pretty. This could be worn both during the day and at night minus the false lashes. I decided to try my own version.

My eye look is a little different because of the shape of my eyes and my lip colour looks more pinky than hers.

For this look I used:
Face: MAC Studio fix liquid foundation NW43 and studio fix foundation plus powder NW43

Eyes: Primer- NYX High Definition Eye base
On the lid: NYX Pearl Pigment
Crease: The purple colour from MAC Odd couple, blend well with a blending brush. I used a darker purple shade in my outer  V from my coastalscents 88 shimmer palette.
Bottom lid: wet and wild jumbo cream shadow pencil ( can't remember the number)
Annabelle liquid eyeliner in black out on lash line followed by mascara (the usual)

Covergirl Cheekers Blush in  Cinnamon toast

Lips: LA Colour lip pencil (pink colour) followed by MAC Up the amp and NYX Narcisuss.
Natural lighting

Rocking my clutch that I use as my laptop bag from clutchculture.

Mo and I at the Publig Gardens
Camera doesn't really pick up the purple
Hope you feel inspired to try it too. Have a good weekend!!!!
