Makeup Of The Day

I posted this look on my Instagram earlier this week, and I put out a Twitter poll to see if you guys wanted to know the details, so here they are!

This is a slate grey smokey eye look with a slate lip, to create this look I used a combination of high-end and drugstore products.

For the base:

For the base I used my Smashbox Studio Skin 15 hour wear foundation in 0.5 and applied it with a beauty blender. This is my Holy Grail foundation and I tend to use it on nights out and the days I know I’ll be taking lots of photos because it gives you a flawless base. To set it in place I used the Kat Von D Lock It powder foundation in the shade Light 42 to mattify my face.

Brows:

For my brows I used a range of Benefit products since I’ve only gone and won a years’ worth in a giveaway! Stay tuned for a full face of Benefit blog and more info on that one!

First I used the Brow-Zings (shade 4) wax to line my brows, and used a bit of the powder to fill in the end. I then went in with Ka-Brow (shade 3) to darken it up. Next I combed through some Gimme Brow (shade 3) to coat the hairs and make the front of them fluffy and natural. I set these in place with the Ready Set Brow clear brow gel – these bad boys ain’t moving.

Contour and Highlight:

For my contour I used the trusty go-to Rimmel x Kate Moss Sculpting Palette and highlighted it with Sleek’s Cleopatra’s Kiss palette.

Eyes:

I used my Kat Von D powder foundation as a transition shade before going in with my Anastasia Beverly Hill’s Modern Renaissance palette.  I went straight into the crease with a fluffy brush with the shade Warm Taupe, then took some Buon Fresco above that and blended it out. I added a touch of Antique Bronze at the outer corner to darken it a little and add more depth. On the lower lash line I used a combination of Buon Fresco and Warm Taupe. I highlighted the inner corner and brow bone with Cleopatra’s Kiss.

Lashes:

This is my favourite mascara at the minute, the Rimmel Extra Long Lash mascara – it works  miracles I swear, and it’s only £4.99.

Lips:

I lined my lips with my Mac Lip Liner in Stone and then used my Mac Liquid Lip Colour in Simply Smoked.

Voi-la. Super easy and achievable smokey eye. What other makeup looks would you like to see on the blog?
