Hey guys! I have really wanted to do a glittery smokey eye lately, so I figured I’d share it with you.
As usual, I started by waking my under eye area up with The Ordinary Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG. I also swept some Smack Beauty Bat Those Lashes Volumizing Lash Serum along my lash line.
To hydrate my lips, I applied some Lip Smart Powerful Hydration for Dry Lips. I also sprayed some Skindinavia Makeup Primer Spray on.
To even out my skin tone, I used a Japonesque Multitasker Brush to buff on some Dr. Jart + Black Label Detox Beauty Balm. To add a little definition, I used both a Sigma E75 Brush and a e.l.f. Cosmetics Contouring Brush to add some Jouer Cosmetics Perfector in Chestnut. I blended the crap out of it with a dampened Beauty Blender.
To conceal under my eyes and highlight the center area of my face, I used a Real Techniques Essential Foundation Brush to add some Palladio Under Eyes Disguise Full Coverage Concealer in Vanilla Latte.
For some cheek color, I used the heat of my fingers to melt some Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Creme Colour Concentrate in Grandma onto my cheeks.
I also added some NYX Professional Makeup Strobe of Genius Holographic Stick in Mermaid Armor to my cheekbones and down the bridge of my nose.
To set all that, I grabbed my e.l.f. Cosmetics Professional Powder Brush and swept some Ben Nye Pretty Pink Translucent Powder all over. Over the contoured areas, I used a Morphe R41 Brush and a Morphe M530 Brush to add some Palladio Matte Bronzer in Teeny Bikini.
For some more cheek color, I use a Sigma F15 Brush to all a little Jouer Cosmetics Powder Blush in Blossom. And for even more glow, I used a Morphe M310 Brush to add some Dose of Colors Baked Highlighter in Pearl Dust to my cheekbones and down the bridge of my nose.
To fill in and shape my brows today, I used some By Nanda Long Lasting Coloring Eyebrows in 05. To clean up the edges, I used a Younique Cream Shadow Brush and a wee bit of Dermacol Make-Up Foundation in 209.
Now for the fun part! Today I used my NYX Professional Makeup Perfect Filter Shadow Palette in Gloomy Days.
For a transition shade, I used a Morphe M505 Brush to sweep on some of the shade in the fourth column, bottom.
Into my crease, I used a Sigma E30 Brush to add some of the top left corner color.
Onto my lower lash line, I used a Morphe E14 Brush to smudge on some of the color in the second column, bottom.
Next I sort of scribbled some NYX Professional Makeup Jumbo Eye Pencil in Black Bean onto my eyelids. I used a Morphe E32 Brush to spread it around more evenly.
Now for the sparkle! I used a Morphe E14 Brush to pat some Ben Nye Lumiere Luxe Powder in Starry Night Sparkle right on top of that Black Bean.
I threw on a couple of coats of L’Oréal Voluminous Million Lashes Mascara. I also added a pair of Red Cherry Lashes in 415 with a little Duo Eyelash Adhesive.
To finish off the look, I applied some NYX Professional Makeup Matte Lipstick in Merlot.
See you soon!
