Show Stopping Eyes

Smokey eye is the look that goes with everything and since it’s party season, why not add some festive shimmer – If ever there’s a time to sparkle, it’s Christmas! Ditch the boring browns and greys and choose skin flattering bronzish hues. An eyeshadow palette like Urban Decay Naked is your party-season BFF. With 12 shades from neutrals to shimmers, you can create the look that suits you. A smokey eye doesn’t have to be difficult. You only really need two or three shadows, a liner and a mascara. Balance the heavy eye with natural, luminous skin and a nude lip – or if you feel like being rebellious, why not reach for a ravishing red.

Step 1 – Not to prime is a crime! If you want your smokey eye to last as long as you do, you’ve got to lay down the foundations. Apply a long-lasting primer like Urban Decay Primer Potion all over the lids.

Step 2 – Take your palette and lay down an all-over-lid base colour with a lighter shade like Buck. Add intensity by applying a darker colour like Smog to the outer corners of the lid and smudge a little under the eyes for extra dram. A generous dusting of gold shimmer (like half baked) to the centre of the lids adds an instant festive feel and really brightens the eye. Add a little in the inner corners of the eyes (near your tear ducks), this will really make your eyes pop!

Step 3 – Liner time. It’s a smokey eye so no need to be precise. Take a long-lasting khol pencil to line the lids and under-eye area, then using your finger, smudge out for a lived-in, smoked effect.

Step 4 – Lashings of your favourite mascara – If you want full on glamour, why not add some lashes.

The rest of the make up went like this...

MAC Studio Sculpt Foundation
Laura Mercier Foundation Primer
MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural
Urban Decay 24/7 Liner in Perversion
Bourjois One Seconde Volume Mascara
MAC Desert Rose Blush
L'Oreal Lip Liner Honey

Guaranteed to wow, easy to do, ready to rock!
