Burgundy Smokey Eye

10 January 2017

Sure the holidays are over but that doesn't mean we have to part with the festive looking makeup looks, especially now that the glum and ho-hum days of winter are here. Why not heat up from that 15˚ degree weather with rich hued, wine inspired look - think mulled wine with a hint of shimmer, and on your eyes. It can be toned down for day or amplified for date night. I know we're a month off but maybe it could be a contender for Valentine's day. I personally kept the lip simple and went with a muted, pastel pink lip from MAC to let the eyes do all the sparkling. 
1. Prep your face with a primer.  I used ThisWorks "In Transit Camera Close-up" (It's a moisturizer, primer and mask in one). 

2. Next, with my Real Techniques Beauty Sponge (dampened) I applied my Stila Aqua Glow Serum Foundation

3. A little contouring and highlighting with Maybelline Master Contour in 010 Light & Maybelline Master Strobing Stick in Medium Nude Glow

4. On the apples of my cheeks I kept it simple with Stila Sunrise Splendor Convertible Color

5. With Bareminerals Gen nude in Borderline I lined and blended my lips. Applied Mac Real Doll and gave it a quick blot. 

6. Finally eyes, I'm obsessed with the Stila Eyes Are The Window Shadow Palette so there was no chance I was not putting it to use on this one especially when "Pigalle" is the perfect color for the job. I created a base with "Jezebel" on my lids and lightly built up color with "Pigalle" in my crease until I reached the the hue I desired and then blended with a q-tip for a smokey, more balanced look.
