Today I wanted to move the oranges from my eyes to my lips and clothes and decided to do a smokey-brown eye with Bengali as my feature colour. I started with my basic concealer/foundation routine and then moved right into creating my feature eye look. I started with ricepaper by MAC as a base and then used a round-fluffy brush to sweep Bengali from the lid up into the crease and outer corners. I then blended NARS 'Silent Night' into the lid. I lined my eyes with Teddy and smudged Galapagos into the upper lash line before finishing with mascara. I was originally wearing Pretty Your World's blush in Goldfish, but went to department store and ended up trying on NARS 'Taj Mahal' Blush, so this is the blush I'm wearing in this photo. I finished with MAC's So Chaud Lipstick + Make Up For Ever #17 lipstick:
For women who want to do the smokey eye look but find black too heavy - don't give up! There are 'endless' smokey eye colour combinations - Everything from Plums and Greys if you're cooler toned to Browns and even Olives if your warm toned. The most important thing is to play around and have fun - sometimes I've gone to do a natural look and it ends up smokey and other time its the opposite, I intend on doing something smokey and blended and it turns out very natural looking. The best part about makeup if that it allows you to be an artist and what you create is endless possibilities with makeup!!!
