The Smokey Eye

Who doesn't love a smokey eye? I felt like glamming it up a bit the other night and decided to do a graphite/charcoal themed smokey eye. I paired it with a nude gloss to keep the focus on the eyes and used a bronzing blush to sculpt my cheeks and not introduce too much colour. I love this look and will definitely be re-creating it at the weekend when I go out for a Christmas meal! 

I am so obsessed with eyeshadows and my collection is ever-growing. I wanted to delve into some more smokey/dark colours so I added the ones I used here to my collection recently. I usually wear browns, neutrals and bronzes but I am really getting into my red toned browns, greens and greys lately.

Here I used:

Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation in Cashew
MAC Pro Longwear Concealer in NW25
Estee Lauder Automatic Brow Pencil in Soft Brown
Benefit Speed Brow
Lime Crime Eyeshadow Helper
Clinique All About Shadow Eye Shadow in Graphite
Estee Lauder Pure Color Eyeshadow in Black Crystals
Estee Lauder Double Wear Eye Pencil in Graphite
Estee Lauder Lash Primer Plus
Estee Lauder Sumptuous Mascara in Black
Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Powder
Benefit Dallas Box 'O Powder
Estee Lauder Pure Color Gloss in Tempting Tearose

Are you a fan of the smokey eye look?
