Dramatic Navy Smokey Eye



Hey everyone! Some of you love super colorful looks, some enjoy natural looks, but as I've revealed through some of my "Questions of the Week" MANY of you love a good smokey eye. That's what I'd like to show you in this "Eye of the day" post :D It's very dramatic, not for everyday use- but would be great for a night out on the town or a big event. Enjoy!



-Apply Too Faced Shadow insurance as a primer all over lids

-Apply a deep blue matte shadow lightly all over the lid (I used the blue on the bottom row, 3 shades from the right in my Coastal Scents 42 color Double Stack Matte shadow & blush palette)
-Use black shade (I used Glam Couture pressed shadow in Night in Vegas- a sparkly black) to develop the outer V shape.
-Use a rich matte black to further deepen the outer half of the crease (I used the black in the corner of the CS palette) Blend, blend, blend!
-Highlight with a light shimmery shade- I used my Coastal Scents Hot Pot single in S03. I also used a very light touch of that on the inner part of the lid.
-Line the eyes... I used Revlon Colorstay liquid liner in Blackest Black for the top lash line, and the pencil liner in black on the bottom. I topped the bottom liner with the deep blue matte shadow we used earlier.
-Apply false lashes... This is a MUST to achieve the effect of this look. I used Ardell Invisiband Demi Luvies (Available at Sally Beauty Supply). Doesn't give you a natural look, but a fun one!
-On the lips... I used Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick in Metallic Seduction. I then dotted a light nude shimmer shade in the center of my lips for fullness- sorry I can't remember the exact shade I used there! Any light shimmery gloss will do :D
