happy new year!
the first post of 2013 starts with a light smokey eyes for the summer, inspired by a how-to smokey black eyes for asian eyes i saw from pinterest. i’m not going to include the image in this post since there may be some copyright issues – it appears to be korean but it has an unlegible weibo watermark on the image and i don’t know who this image actually belongs to.
btw, i’m actively pinning again, follow me!
the how-to is for monolids, i have hooded lids so i considered it’s more or less similar.
i used brown instead of black because i was wearing during the day and wanted to look less dramatic. and it was really hot today. just in case makeup melts and creases to a huge mess under the heat.
i also applied more product than usual, almost occupied 2/3 of the whole eye area so that more color shows through when my eyes are opened.
products used on the eys:
- etude house proof 10 eye primer – all over the eye area including the brows
- detrivore eyeshadow in vulture – filled in the brows
- bourjois effect smokey eye pencil in smokey brown – do a very winged eyeliner with thickness slightly above the crease, line outer 1/3 of lower lashline, also tightline the top lashline
- noella beauty works eyeshadow in velvet – applied over the above eyeliner, and bring it further up above the crease, and along the lower lashline
- djv beautenizer fiberwig lx mascara
other products used:
- bourjois 10 hour sleep foundation in #72
- maybelline age rewind concealer in medium
- physician formula cheek palette in rose palette
- shiro intertube in why not zoidberg?
i didn’t use powder since it was so hot and i didn’t want to load more products on my face. bad choice. my face shined quite quickly. the eye makeup still look good and fresh by the end of the day.
i looked tired due to lack of sleep. :/ a more visible eyeliner might help. the bourjois pencil fades too quickly and doesn’t like to stay on my eyes.
