Brown Smokey Eyes: EOTD, FOTD

Hey all,

I was feeling a bit lazy today, when suddenly the inspiration to create brown smokey eyes hit me. Brown because it would be wearable in office and because I wanted to see if it was possible for me to create smokey eyes before venturing out with black. Here are the products used for this look:

1.Revlon eye pallete in naturally glamorous (shown here)
2. Revlon Grow Luscious Mascara
3. A pinky gloss ( I am using Integrate lip gloss (review here))
4. Painterly paint pot from MAC
5. Rose Water from FabIndia
6. Lakme Kohl absolute (review here)
7. An unbranded eyeshadow blending brush

Now for the steps which I used to achieve this look. First things first, prime your eyelids before you begin any eye makeup, this is specially important for creating smokey eyes. I am using a painterly paint pot from MAC on both my upper and lower lashes. Once the primer was set, I wet my eyeliner brush with toner and picked up the brown black shade on the left corner of the pallete and used that as an eyeliner over the top lashes. You can place the eyeliner unevenly over the top lashes as the shape would be adjusted later. Next, I placed the highlighter (the center one) on the brow bone downwards till my crease. Now, with the eyeshadow blending brush, I picked the dark brown color (second from left) and smudged the eyeliner on the top eyelid, upwards and outwards, keeping it well below the crease. The next steps involve blending, blending, and more blending. Blended the crease color with the same brown eyeshadow. Placed the brown on the lower lash line as well. Lined the upper and lower lashes with Lakme Kohl and applied lots and lots of mascara to both the lashes.

Phew, too much explanation!!! Let's see my EOTD:

And, here comes the FOTD:

Since the focus of the look is on the eyes, I have applied a very light pink lip gloss and kept the rest of the face nude.

Hope you guys liked the look, very wearable both in office and home, daytime and nightime, when you are feeling lazy or spunky. Do, try this girlz, you will surely like the outcome!!!

Take care...
