Hi guys! In keeping with the makeup look request, I decided to do a deeper, darker version of the golden smoky look. This is definitely a more evening appropriate look.
I wanted to note that I decided to give my look at little more of a twist. This is the absolute very 1st time I have worn false eye lashes. I have to say I really love the way they look. However, because this was my first time, I realize I may need to practice the application more to really get the hang of it. Considering everything, though, I think I did a good job. I am looking forward to working with lashes more frequently. They do enhance the overall look.
As usual, I began by filling in my eye brows with Merle Norman Eye Brow Powder Duet in Rich Brown. I applied Hampton Sun SPF 15 Super Hydrating Face Cream and Lancôme La Base Pro all over my face and allowed each time to set. I packed on the eye lid MAC Carbon eye shadow (matte). From the crease to the brow bone, I applied MAC Embark eye shadow (matte). On the brow bone, I used MAC Cork eye shadow (satin). On the crease, I applied MAC Cross-Cultural eye shadow (matte) to help blend out the colors. From the eye lid to the brow bone, I blended NARS Silent Night eye shadow over the other colors. Under the brow, I used MAC Brule eye shadow (satin). To define and enhance the upper lash line, I applied Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Perversion. On the lower lash line, I used Sephora Waterproof Retractable Eyeliner in Matte Black. Right on top of the lower lashes, I used Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Eldorado and blended that into the black. I used Make Up For Ever's Smoky Extravagant mascara on both upper and lower lashes. Lastly, I applied Ardell Fashion Lashes #109 to the upper lash line.
For the rest of my face, I applied MAC Matchmaster Foundation in 3.0 and MAC Pressed Blot Powder in Medium Dark. I used MAC Bronzing Powder in Bronze on the hollows of my cheeks. I applied MAC Pink Cult powder blush (matte) to my cheeks. As a highlight, I applied MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Lightscapade to the tops of my cheek bones and the inner corner of my eyes. On my lips, I used NYX Peekaboo Neutral lip liner pencil all over and MAC Pillow Talk lipstick (cremesheen). I opted against a bold lip so as to keep the focus on the eyes.
