stormy night smokey eyes

navy smokey eyes

this is an attempt to do lmff runway look 4 (scroll to the end of the post for face chart). it’s a strong graphite liner look. obviously i failed at doing it. since i didn’t have time to do it again, the edges were smudged and turned into smokey eyes.

i tried to use most products listed in the face chart.

  • too faced shadow insurance

other products used:

  • mineral powder foundation
  • skinfood salmon concealer
  • l’oreal nude magique bb powder *
  • arbonne blush in blossom *
  • l’oreal glam bronze la terra * – under the cheek bones
  • l’oreal color riche lipcolor in sensual rose *

while navy is a color that’s more interesting than just black, i don’t think it suits me that well. pretty girl who usually praises my makeup told me indirectly that it looks ‘too dark’ and suggested i should’ve used brighter color. (my little advisor!)

however the overall looked was better after i pull all my hair back.

all my hair were pulled up into a top bun made with double braids. you can find the tutorial from my hair how-to’s pinterest board.
