Collaborating with the queen of creative makeup, seriously, her blog is just full of awesome reviews and creative makeup tutorials. So when we decided to collab, this seemed the right choice. I will be doing a day time smoky eye look – simple and standard while Sarah from Blend N Smack will be doing a super creative night-time smokey eye and let me tell you – She looks like a total bombshell!
Let’s get into the look I’ve done for a day time appropriate smoky eye! It pays more attention to the skin as you can see, mine has been a bit bumpy lately. The makeup is really simple and if you have brown eyes, it is extremely complimentary.
Products Used –
1. Lorac Pro Pallette
2. Clinique Chubby Stick in Portly Plum
3. Chanel Illusion D’Ombre in New Moon
4. Clinique Even Better Foundation mixed with Embryolisse Moisturiser
5. M.A.C Lipstick in Modesty
6. Benefit The Rockateur Blush
7. Marc Jacobs Remedy Pen
6. Rimmel Stay-Matte Translucent Powder
The look requires minimal tools for a day-time appropriate smoky eye. Begin with applying the Chubby Stick all across your eye-lid and bled away with your ring finger. Take a dark plummy shade and diffuse the color across your crease very gently. I took the shade Deep Purple from Lorac Pro Pallette and finally to bring some light to your eyes, apply the Chanel Illusion D’Ombre in the centre of the eye-lid. It catches the light beautifully.
For the skin, keep it demi-matte. I would not recommend not-powdering or using an excessively moisturizing formula for this look as it will move around and will not look natural. I mixed my foundation with the moisturizer and applied it with my fingers, blending seamlessly. I concealed my under-eye with the Marc Jacobs Remedy Pen which is the bomb btw! Touching up the centre of my face with the translucent powder.
Final touch – Some nude lips that do not make you look dead. My pick – All time favourite M.A.C Modesty!
I hope you all will give this a go! If something dramatic floats your boat – check out Sarah’s blog, it will blow your mind, I promise!
