Hi, friends! Happy Olympics! Happy New York Fashion Week! Happy... Birthday? Maybe? I thought I'd force my face upon all of you today with a little 'Everyday Eye Makeup' Post! This isn't exactly what I've been wearing for the last couple of months, but this is literally the look I wore all of last year so, I thought, as it was a much loved daily routine, that I should recognize it on the blog before I retired it for a little while. I still absolutely love this combination of products for my eyes, the makeup addict within me has just been begging me to try some new things out.
EYE MAKEUP //
Urban Decay Naked Palette 1: Sidecar, Smog and Darkhorse // Urban Decay 24/7 Glide on Eyeliner in Smog // Rimmel Scandaleyes Mascara
My process for this went a little like this: I put Sidecar all over the lid, Smog on the outer edge (covering about 1/4 of my eyelid) and all the way through the crease, and finally Darkhorse in the very, very outer corner and outside half of the crease. Then I blended 'til I couldn't feel my hands with my MAC 217 brush.
I think this creates a really nice shimmery, smokey eye that can either be brought down for an every day look (take away or tone down the Darkhorse) or amped up for night time (Heylooo Smog and Darkhorse, how'd you get all over my face so quickly, I suddenly feel amped up). This look also looks really nice on a lot of different skin tones and can be modified if you have a darker complexion. I have a friend who uses Sidecar just on the inner corner of her eye, Smog all over the lid, and Darkhorse in the crease.
Good luck and good day to you all! And please - ignore the eyebrows, they're asshats and we're not getting along right now.
