Easy-peasy smoky eye :) I consider this the "traditional" smoky eye, since I've always thought of a smoky eye as silver/gray. Video tutorial for this coming soon, too!

You will need the following...

Blast From the Past: Fuchsia-Purple & Electrolady

Thank goodness my brows are way better nowadays, but I am still loving the way the lower lash line looks in this combination!  I'm definitely going to have to repeat it in a new look sometime.

I used Shimmertime pigment on lid, Stars 'n Rockets eyeshadow on inner lid, Passionate eyeshadow on...

Look – Gold, Orange, and Pinky-Red

Still experimenting with my camera, except I forgot to actually experiment. I got distracted (as per usual!), and I only ended up taking one set of photos, so I didn't have much to choose from (read that as only one photo per angle, so there was nothing to choose from!).

Look – Yellow & Purple Style Warrior Look

Here's a MAC Style Warrior look! I did false eyelashes again (hey, when you've spent four years attempting without success, and you can manage it... you keep trying!), but I used knockoff #7s instead, and they were just too long, IMO. I ended up removing them, because the length was a bit...

Look – Dramatic Blue & Teal Look with False Eyelashes

Yesterday, I was SO excited! Why? Because I applied false eyelashes for the first time to myself without it taking all day long. False eyelash application is most definitely an area where I lack expertise in (I can tell you all the tricks--I just can't get them to work for me!), and one of the...

Look – Smokey Eyes with Gray and Silver

It's been SO long since I've done the "traditional" smokey eye, so I had the urge to try it out again :) I'm spending my weekend cramming/studying for my Stats and Managerial Accounting finals on Monday (yay, back-to-back finals, so awesome!). I'm meeting up with some study buddies for Stats in...

Look – Soft Neutrals for Thanksgiving

I did this look for Thanksgiving -- something natural and simple, but still noticeable :) I did my makeup today for the first time since Thanksgiving, and it was horrible and felt SO, SO very unnatural.  I was like, "Wow!  Talk about rusty!"  By the by, I used Too Faced's Shadow Insurance for the...
