FOTD: A brown smoky eye

4 Nov

This FOTD is a recreation of my makeup in the Knot Today product review. Every woman needs a go-to neutral look! They’re so simple. Case in point: this look was created using only shadows from the Wet N Wild Vanity palette. But y’all know how much I LOVE color, so today my POP of color was Green Shimmer HD gel liner by Ruby Kisses; it’s a dark green w/ flecks of gold glitter.

PRIMER: NYX HD e/s base

BASE: NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Black Bean (on the outer half of my eyelids)

SHADOW: I covered my entire lower eyelid in shimmery brown e/s. Then I used matte dark brown e/s to darken my outer v & matte camel to highlight brow bone. Finally I used frosty champagne to highlight my tearducts, as well as the arches of my eyebrow. ALL shadows used in this look are from the Wet N Wild Vanity palette.

 

OTHER DETAILS… I used CoverGirl single e/s in Smolder to define my eyebrows. Maybelline Volume Express “Falsies” Mascara in Blackest Black on my eyelashes. I defined my upper lashline with Wet n Wild cream eyeliner in black & my waterline with Ruby Kisses HD gel liner in “green shimmer”.

LIPS: Carmex + Maybelline Shiny-Licious Lip Gloss in Peach Sorbet

CHEEKS: I used Ulta single e/s in “Sparks” on the hollows of my cheeks &  Black Radiance sheer finish blush in Soft Honey on the apples of my cheeks.

FACE: Estee Lauder pressed powder in Deep (05)

Stay tuned for a video tutorial of this look…
