Smokey Eye & Red Lip Look

Hello!

I've been playing around with the Coastal Scents Revealed Smoky Palette. So far I'm feeling just okay about it, I'll have more on that in a later post. It is a palette with some dark colors, so I was inspired to create a smokey eye. I recall the high school days where I'd always wear a smokey eye. Why didn't anyone stop me haha?


Onto the look..


My face was a little dry, so I applied Makeup Forever's Step 1 hydrating primer. I went with a medium coverage foundation and used a bronzer instead of a blush. The bronzer had some shimmer in it. I wanted to add a glow to the face area. I bought the bronzer up the forehead as well. I already had too much going on with the eyes, so the bronzer isn't too dark.


Face

  • Makeup Forever Step 1 Hydrating Primer
  • Tarte Amazonian Clay Foundation
  • It Cosmetics Brow Power 
  • Elizabeth Mott Queen of the Fill
  • Boo Boo Cover Up 
  • OFRA Pressed Banana Powder as setting under eye concealer
  • Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder
Cheeks & Lips

  • The Balm Mary Lou Manizer was applied as a high light
  • Pixi by Petra Bronzer in "Summertime"
  • L'oreal Le Matte Lipstick in "Mad For Matte" (I'm glad these are now permanent. I love this shade, and want to try more)
Eyes

I took one of the taupe shades and applied that all over the lid. I picked up a shimmery light brown and applied it in the crease. I used a matte brown and dark black to really deepen the crease area. Then I blended, blended, and blended some more. I don't want to seem like I got punched in the eye. I used a matte white from the palette to highlight my inner eye lid and brow bone. Elizabeth Mott's You're So Fine Eyeliner was used to add a little glitter. I added some more drama by adding Lancome's Noir Intense as bottom liner.

What products do you use for a smokey eye? 

On another note..
  • Is anyone watching The People Vs. Oj Simpson? I really like the cast they picked out. I didn't like Cuba in the role of OJ at first, but I'm warming up to it
  • I've been really enjoying infused waters lately (Raspberries, Strawberries, and lemons are lovely together!)
  • Just counting down the days till my birthday. 1 more week! 
  • I broke my no buy. I went into Ulta this past weekend and well you know the rest. I'll have that haul up next week. 
  • Jaclyn Hill's Z-Palette Video is giving me life. I need these shadows.
