I’ve never experimented much with smokey eyes because I find it difficult to make them work for my eyeshape. Lots of dark eyeshadow directly around my lashlines looks odd on me, I always go for darker colours in the crease. However, I’ve been admiring Lisa Eldridge other people’s smokey looks for a while now and I am determined to make this work for me. Here is a first attempt… I wanted it to work in the daytime, so skipped gel liner, etc.

Face:

– YSL Youth Liberator foundation in B30

– Maybelline Dream Lumi touch concealer in Ivory under the eyes

– Nars deep throat blush

– Nars Laguna bronzer in an attempt to contour my nose

– Nars light reflecting loose setting powder

Eyes:

– Rimmel Exaggerate eye-shadow primer

– Nars Fairy’s kiss eyeshadow palette (light lilac over the lid, matte grey in the outer corner/lower lashline/eyebrows, matte black in the centre of the outer corner, with plenty of blending in between)

– Urban Decay 24/7 eye pencil in Uzi (grey) along top lashline

– Gosh Volumateur waterproof mascara (new love)

– Rimmel Scandaleyes nude eyeliner in the waterline (I tried a dark grey first – looked aweful!)

Lips:

– Nothing, just Nuxe Reve de miel lipbalm
