FOTD: Blackstar

8 Aug

At your request, I FINALLY attempted a black smoky eye. I’m not gonna lie, I thought about it long & hard before I tried it… fear of the unknown, I suppose. In the end I’m glad I did it, even if I am a bit freaked out by my own reflection in this makeup. LMBO! This is a harsh look, so it’s best suited for a night out on the town. Oh and be sure to get a good night’s rest & or use eye drops to reduce the appearance of redness. The “recipe” actually calls for matte black, but I live for sparkle, so I had to keep it Sham-ly 🙂 Ya feel me? ENJOY!

PRIMER: NYX HD e/s base

BASE: NYX Jumbo eye pencil in Milk (tearducts) & Black Bean (the rest of the lower eyelid)

SHADOW: I covered my lower eyelid & crease (except for my tearducts) in sparkly black e/s (WNW Greed palette).  I applied matte peach e/s to my brow bone (WNW Greed palette) & used sparkly off-white e/s to highlight my tearducts (WNW Lust palette).

OTHER DETAILS… I used CoverGirl single e/s in Smolder to define my eyebrows. L’Oreal Collagen Mascara in Blackest Black on my eyelashes. On my waterline I used WetNWild eyeliner pencil in white. I also used a pencil brush to smudge sparkly black e/s around the outer edge of my eyelid.

FACE: Estee Lauder pressed powder in Deep (05)

CHEEKS: Wet N Wild Blush in “Heather Silk”

LIPS: Carmex + Estee Lauder lip gloss in Rose

Video tutorial coming soon…
