Bold Summer Night Makeup

Thursday, July 12, 2012

We saw this look on the runways this Spring 2012 and thought it would be the perfect smoky look for summer. Here's how!

1. Apply our Mineral Eyeshadow in 'Royal' to the lids just up to the crease. Wing out the shadow for an exotic look. Apply eyeshadow to the lower lash line as well just stopping at the iris of your eye.

2. Using an icy blue eyeshadow (try our Eye Transformer), highlight the inner corners of the eyes and blend the color onto the crease and into the purple.

3. Apply Mascara and add extra volume with a pair of Natural False Eyelashes.

4. Define brows with our Eyebrow Kit for a polished look.

5. Be sure to clean and conceal the under eye area especially when using purple eyeshadows for a bright eyed effect.

6. Apply our Blush in 'Twinkle Pink' to the apples of the cheeks and blend back into the cheekbones.

7. Finish off the look with a swipe of our Matte Lip Color in 'Nearly Nude'.

Would you rock this look?

I like the eyes, but a rosy pink lip would have looked better in my opinion.

I love this look. I just don't know if I could pull it off. I have dark brown eyes and I am older.....

Absolutely Georgeous Smokey Eye! Never seen it played up with an IceBlue Liner before. The touch of Purple is nearly perfect for added color. The only complaint I have involves the Blush & Lipcolor. No color is needed on the cheeks when the focus should be to go intense on one main area of the face. With her skintone, the nude color choice is too harsh as opposed to a more warm nude color.

There is no way I would be bold enough to rock this look. I stick to my normal concealer, gold eyeshadow, curled lashes with maybelline lots of lashes mascara, and pink ulta lipstick.I would be scared to try anything else
