Smokey Eyes Palette FOTD

.

Finally, here is the breakdown of the smokey eye I did a few posts back using the MAC Holiday Smokey Eyes Palette. (I finished all the "Twilight" books so now I have a bit more time LOL). For some reason the eyes look lighter in the full face pic, but it was much darker...

You can definitely make it darker and more "smokey", since I wore this to work, I didn't make it TOO dark (in the tut), but be as creative as you want! :)









What I used:

[Face]

- MUFE HD Primer
- MUFE HD Foundation in #127
- Purely Cosmetics Mineral Foundation in "Olive Beige"

[Cheeks]

- MAC Blush in "True Romantic"

[Eyes]
- MAC Holiday '08 Smokey Eyes Palette
- MAC "Gorgeous" e/s all over the lid
- MAC e/s in "Vex" on lower half of the lid (permanent e/s, not in palette)
- MAC e/s in "Satin Taupe" on outer-v and crease
- MAC e/s in "Dark Devotion" on outer-v and outer crease
- MAC e/s in "Carbon" on outer-v and outer crease
- MAC Fluidline in "Blacktrack"
- L'Oreal Double Extend Mascara

[Lips]
- MAC Adoring Carmine's "To Swoon For" lipstick
- MAC Holiday "Flashmode" lipglass











Apply "Carbon" on outer-V as well (forgot to take a pic but here's an old pic from another tut)

Hey I noticed your angled brushed you used to apply blacktrack is bent, is that on purpose? That seems like a good idea.

kae said...

this is a really pretty look! and your tutorials are always helpful :)

what flash setting (?) do you put on ur canon sd750 camera when u take pics? i have the same camera and your pics always seem to come out better than mine! lol. by flash setting i mean the numbers .. you know like the negatives, the zero, and then the positives. i hope i make sense lol. also do you put it on macro? and indoor or portrait? lol sorry so many questions, but ur pics are just really more clear than mine!

Vanessa said...

Hi S! Yeah it's the Sonia Kushuk angled eyeliner brush and it makes applying eyeliner A LOT easier!

Vanessa said...

Hi Kae, I put it on manual, ISO on auto, macro setting (flower), and flash settings at either -1, or -2.
