FOTD: Classic Smokey Eye.

Most of my FOTD posts up to now have had more natural eye make-up and often a statement lip colour. For the next few FOTDs I thought I would switch it about a little and give you some dramatic eye looks. To start, I thought I would just keep it simple with a classic, sultry smokey eye. I hope you like it :)

Make-up I used

-Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation, Shade 54
- Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer, Light
-Rimmel London Powder Blush, Smoked Oyster

Urban Decay Alice in Wonderland Book of Shadows (This contains renamed eyeshadows from the permanent range, so I have included both the original names and the names in this palette).
-Lid: Mushroom mixed with Drink Me, Eat Me/ Sin
-Crease/ lower lashline: Mushroom
-Outer corner: Jabberwocky/ Oil Slick
Inner corner: White Rabbit/ Polyester Bride

-Upper Lashline: Maybelline Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner, Black
-Water line: MUA Intense Colour Eye liner, Snow White
-Mascara: 17 Falsifeye False Lash Effect Mascara, Blackest Black
-Brows: HD Brows Palette, Bombshell
-Collection 2000 Cream Puff Lip Cream, Powder Puff
-MUA Out There Pumping Lip Gloss, Buff
