I hope that everyone had a fabulous New Years Eve. Now we have made our way to 2012. "Supposedly" the year that the world is going to end. haha. So I guess lets live 2012 like it's our last!
Yesterday, I decided to be a little adventurous and wear a silver, glittery, black smokey eye. I love the way it ended up turning out, not so much how the pictures turned out though. :( The lighting wasn't the greatest due to this gloomy Michigan weather.
Is it almost summer yet? lol.
I know it is a little too late to try this look out for New Year's Eve, but this is also a great eye makeup look for a night out to a concert, club, etc. :)
To achieve this eye makeup..
I first applied my Too Faced Eye Shadow Insurance.
I then applied a matte white color under my eye brow.
I used the MAC's eye shadows Cork and Swiss chocolate in and above my crease.
I used Urban Decay's Blackout from the Naked Palette 2 on my outter V area and blended into the crease.
I also took this black and ran it along my lower lash line.
I took Urban Decay's YDK (also from Naked 2) and applied it to the inner corner of my eye.
As the base color on my lid, I used MAC's Electra.
The glitter that I used is a Mary Kate and Ashley loose silver glitter that I had from back in the day.
To apply this and make it stick, I sprayed my Make Up Forever Mist and Fix on the back of my hand.
I dipped a synthetic concealer brush in the liquid and then dipped that brush into the glitter and applied it to my lid.
I kept doing this and packing the glitter on until I reached the desired amount of glitter.
I lined my upper lash line with Sephora's waterproof smokey cream liner in black.
I then applied Red Cherry false lashes in #43.
After applying the false lashes, I went over my lash line again with the cream liner.
For the rest of the face..
For blush I used Tarte's Exposed.
I then contoured a little using Benefit's Hoola bronzer.
I added a bit of highlight on my cheek bones and bridge of my nose using Benefit's High Beam.
I kept my lips nude using Bare Mineral's Cream Puff lipstick.
Here is one picture taken from last night.
