Simple smokey eye
All you bloggers that posted olive nails over the past few weeks, you looked gorgeous and i’ve now officially copied you.
I couldn’t take it anymore.
Found an Essence polish in 139 Walk on the wild side.
Not sure how i’m liking it just yet, let’s see if it actually stays on longer than a day.
I’ll keep you posted on that, but I wanted to share the eye look I created to go with it:
It’s.. a brown smokey eye.
Not much to it but it made me feel smoldery for sure LOL!
I applied Urban Decay’s glide on eyepencil in Zero all over the top and lower lashline, because it smudges so easily.
Then a shimmery shell in my inner corner.
A beige aaaaaall up in my crease, almost up to the browbone even.
Following up with bronze on my lid, up to right above the crease. (on the outer corner)
The darkest warm brown I kept for my upper & lower lashlines and outer V.
This dark color is the key I think, for hooded eyes. To not make them look droopy.
Keep it confined to the outer corner, and apply it in the same direction you would a liner, up and out.
To finish off, I added a matte bone color right underneath my eyebrows, a thin line of Essence liquid liner and Essence maximum definition mascara (love the wand!!).
My brows have the left top color of the Gosh eyebrow kit brushed through them.
Then for blusher I chose a bright bright pink, and highlighter is Physicians Formula’s (I hate writing that name!) Shimmer Strips in Natural Glow.
On my lips there’s a sheer orange gloss.
To be honest, I don’t really care much for smokey eyes.
Had a lot of trouble with them in the past, having very deep set eyes the dark eyeshadows made them droop down when applied the wrong way.
However i’ve gotten better at it, and sometimes I just get that kick and want to smudge a liner all over my eye.
What do you think? Your thing or not so much?
