Classic Brown Smokey Eye Look





Happy New year boys and girls! Hope you saw in 2016 in style. I had a pretty quiet one, but that didn't stop me rocking a cute brown smokey eye. It's not full-on new year glamour but it's an easy look that can easily be dialled up or down with added liner and lashes.

Eyes


All the shadows are from my new Tarte Holiday collection - I warned you i was going to be raving about this A.LOT! Using the brown/earthy quad I applied 'pop the cork' a warm, light brown all over the lid, up to and past the crease, 'feeling fizzy' a medium brown with a little shimmer over the lid and up to the crease and 'chocolate fountain' along the bottom of the lid close to the top lash line. You're basically layering your browns, light to dark to create a graduated effect. Then using a small dense brush, I applied a matte black shadow to the upper lash line and 'chocolate fountain' to the bottom lash line. You could do liquid/gel liner/cat flicks to up the amp. I finished with a little Urban Decay 24/7 liner in zero inside my waterlines and lashings of Lancome Volume-a-porter Mascara, fyi it's da bomb!

Brows

Dead simple, Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz in Medium Brown.

Base

Benefit Porefessional Primer, Chanel Vitalumiere Foundation applied with MAC 130 brush, MAC Prep&Prime Highlighter in Light Boost and HD Brows Translucent Finishing powder. I warmed up the face with Charlotte Tilbury's Ah-mazing Filmstar Bronze and Glow all over the face with a fluffy brush, then taking my new powder & Sculpt brush, applied to the contours of the face. For blush, a little of Tarte's Inviting from the same quad.

Lips

Contoured the lips with No7 Naked Lipliner with MAC Honeylove lipstick, the best matte nude!


See you soon with a full review on that amazing Tarte set and the Volume-a-porter mascara.
