Emma Watson inspired

So I have a few products from the Barbary Daly range which I used to create my version of Emma Watson's look. You know what look I am on about right? The infamous look she wore to the HP premier. 

Now I absolutely adore her guts to pull this off although some found it a bit overdone. I did not want to recreate exactly what she wore as I personally would not wear out such a look and I know most of you would not too hence my version is just an inspiration based on the colours used in her look and a much more wearable version of course. 

I will be using a Barbary Daly Gel Eyeliner in Black(to launch in August), an Eye shadow in Smoke and a Lash Boost Mascara. 

The Eye shadow in Smoke is this gorgeous cloudy grey colour and has a nice satin finish to it which makes it so wearable. Unlike other smoky colours out there, you can pop this grey on to your lids without thinking twice and you're good to go.

It loves green eyes!
The Gel Liner in Black is set to launch in August for you Barbary Daly fans out there and I can see how it's going to be a hit.

It's very similar to MAC's Blacktrack Fluidline. I would say the texture is a little bit more waxy, in the sense that it is less likely to dry up in the pot or tug onto the lash line. Although not carbon black on application, it sure is pretty buildable.

An angled brush and this can be your BFF.
But my favourite of the lot is the Lash Boost Mascara. It has this heavenly formula where it lengthens and curls the shortest of lashes, dries quickly and does not feel crisp on drying.

Although it builds up the lashes, it still manages to look natural and wispy and avoids giving a startled effect. You've got to love this one! I really did not expect much much from the super curvy wand but somehow it works wonders at lifting the lashes at just the right places.

Must have!

So here's what I came up with. 

I used the Gel Liner as a base to deepen the eye shadow and layered the grey shadow all over it, blending it upwards towards the crease. 

I then used Sleek's Molten Metal in the inner corner of the eyes, blending it towards the middle. 

I thought a soft grey would be easier to pull off but you can of course substitute a black for it instead.

At this time, I also added Urban Decay's pencil in Zero in the water line as I saw Emma had done that too. Moreover, it puts the look into place. 

Its much softer than a full on smoky eye don't you think? Plus the gold just adds that touch of brightness and warmth. I am wearing Sleek's blusher in Santorini below which is bright fuchsia pink. 

Let me know what you guys think.
