As you've probably noticed, I'm a wee bit MAC obsessed and I like to pounce on new limited editions when they come out. I'm doing much better at using restraint and not buying a much of stuff I don't need or even really care for just because it's new and limited edition. Having said that, I couldn't resist the Liberty of London collection that came out last month with its adorable packaging. I did however manage to only buy the two things that most appealed to me. The india ink blue nail polish and the grey shadow. And once I had a new grey shadow in hand, I knew I'd have to do a smokey eye post.
I created this really easy look by first applying the pale dove grey shadow (satin finish) all over the lid. I then used a matte black shadow in the outer third of my lid into the crease and up a wee bit. Lastly I used a black cream liner (you could go thin or thick on this) and then a bit of mascara.
I finished the look with a pink blush, berry lipstain and berry gloss. Foundation and powder and all that stuff too of course!
eyes: Benefit creaseless cream liner in Towne Car; Sephora all over color in 91M; MAC's shadow in Bough Grey; Clinique's High Lengths mascara in Black.
Cheeks and lips: Benefit's Thrrrob powder; Benefit Benetint lip stain; Lancome juicy tube in Berry Bold.
I like doing makeup posts, in part, because you can actually see my eye color. For some reason close-ups don't result in red eye but all of my other photos do resulting in red eye corrector resulting in black eyes. But I like my real eyes much better.
