one fine night, while waiting for hubby at the office (this was wayyy beyond working hours – just so you know teeheee), i decided to play with my naked 2 palette. i remember watching a tutorial on smokey eyes on youtube and decided to give it a go.
just a background – i rarely wear smokey eyes, i feel that with my dark circles and eye bags, it doesnt really look nice on me. so i try to steer clear from smokey eyes (especially black color).
anyway, here’s the end result:
please ignore the red spots on face. was extremely PMS-ing and my foundation has worn off. didn’t retouch my foundation. just powdered my face and that’s it 🙂
closeup on the eyes:
chanel vitalumiere foundation
MAC studio finish concealer in nw25 (undereyes)
MAC studio finish concealer in nc35 (on face)
Laura mercier mineral pressed powder in rich vanilla
MAC espresso on brows
NARS luster blush
UD naked 2 (blackout and chopper)
MAC Blacktrack fluidline
Mac Hug Me lipstick
Mac viva glam VI lipglass
so what do you think? 🙂 hubby seems to like it sooo might be doing more smokey eye looks. but of course cant wear this at work! haha it’s just too much. 😉
feel free to leave a comment if you have questions 😀
this week, i wanted to try something different. usually i try to play up my eyes… but this week, i wanted my lips to be the highlight of my look, so i tried to tone down my eyeshadow by using white eyeshadow with a very light brown for contouring, black eyeliner and a plum-ish red blush to go with the lipstick. here’s the result:
MUFE HD foundation in 123
pur 4-in-1 pressed mineral makeup in golden medium
MAC eyeshadows in: espresso (for brows) and carbon (for liner)
Wet ‘n’ wild color icon eyeshadow in sweet as candy (used the white all over the lids and the brown on the crease)
Majolica Majorca Liquid Perfect Automatic Liner (liquid) in black (applied on top of carbon)
Majolica Majorca Mascara in Lash Expander Frame Plus
Chanel powder blush in plum attraction (the ONLY chanel makeup i own hehehe)
NARS deep throat
Laura Mercier Lipstain in Mulberry (i loveeee this lipcolor!)
alternatively, i used revlon colorburst lipgloss in bordeaux
this was inspired by today’s events hahaha. i got stuck in a very bad jam in C5 this morning so i had limited time to do my makeup at work. :p
