Rural Glamour: Practicing The "Smokey/Smoky" Eye...

Wednesday, July 29, 2009

Here's my attempt at a "Smokey/Smoky" eye. Honestly, I've only did a Smokey eye maybe twice in my makeup life. Like "where am I going to wear all the black eye shadow"?? Well, I did this look... for church!!Lol!

I decided, after watch endless You Tube videos and blogs, that the best smokey eyes are matte. It looks better and blends better...I totally AGREE!

I used Black Radiance Eye Shadow Pencil in Black as a lid base. Then I went over that pencil with a black e/s from an old Sephora palette. Then I took NYX e/s in White and blended up into the brow bone. I use a a MAC Fluidline in Black to line the top and bottom of the eye. Then topped it all off with mascara.:)
