Cocoa Color Story : "By Your Side" Sade Inspired

Cocoa Color Story : "By Your Side" Sade Inspired

The minimalist in me keeps gravitating toward soft, yet striking looks. I was listening to some Sade the other day and instantly remembered this iconic photo of her. 


I decided to take a stab at this no make up, make up look and try my hand at creating faux freckles. Check out the final creation and swatches inspired by this look below!

The Look


The Swatches


From T to B:

I used Makeup Forever's Artist Liquid Matte Lipstick in 401 RED ($20.00) to stain the lip. I used Marena Beaute's Setting Powder in EBENE ($42.00) to contour the face and eyes. I used Wet n Wild Kohl Eye Liner in Simma Brown Now! ($1.00) to line my waterline and create the faux freckles. I used Pixi Endless Silky Eye Pen in Black ($12.00) to line my eyes.
