FOTD: Natural yet Smokey

April 13, 2013


You know why gold (well, in fact bronze shades fall into that category as well) is my all time favourite eyeshadow colour? That’s because it’s so versatile: this shade can be sexy and glamorous, while still looking natural.

Today I went for that ‘natural yet smokey’-look – let me show you some photos and tell you how I achieved this make up.

Let’s start with the most important thing: the eye make up! As said before, I mainly used golden shades. I started out by applying a bronze cream eyeshadow – I forgot to use an eyeshadow base but that doesn’t really matter because those Color Tattoo’s last for ages anyway. Then I defined my crease with a matte brown eyeshadow, on top of that I used a dark brown shade in the outer corner (don’t forget to blend!). I lined my upper and lower lash line with those two colours mixed together, after that I highlighted my inner corner with a shimmery beige/golden pencil. I took care of my brows by applying an eyebrow pencil and gel to them. I finished off by curling my lashes and applying mascara – and then I had the perfect natural smokey eyes!

As for my lips: I just applied a bit of transparent lip balm to them. Woah, that sounds boring.

Here’s a full face picture. I tried out a sample of a new BB Cream, this was my first time using it and I must say I was pretty impressed! Though it was a tiny bit too dark for me – which is strange because I got the lightest shade available. Anyway, other than that I applied a pink-with-a-golden-sheen blush. I skipped using mattifying powder because I wanted to keep my skin looking glowing and fresh. Also I didn’t use a concealer, for no apparent reason…
