FOTN | Smoky Eye & Nude Lip

For some reason I never really go for a dark smoky eye look. I've actually been kind of scared of black eye shadow and have always gone for the safer browny options in my Naked 2 palette. However when my friend Kelley did my make-up for her make-up artistry portfolio she went to town on the dark eyes and I must say I LOVE IT. Like, I really really love it. She made me feel super pretty with the shots she took!

I thought I would share with you all the look she created. Her task was to create a night-out look using all drug-store make-up which is right up my street and I'm sure it will be up yours too as we all love a bargain, am I right?!

For the base she used Revlon colourstay foundation and the Sleek face form kit for contouring which I lurve #dathighlight. For the eyes Kel used Maybeline Colour Tattoo in dramatic black as well as the black from the original sleek palette blended on the crease. We used the Soap and Glory Smoulder kohl eyeliner on my waterline, and Supercat on my lid. We then finished the eyes with Maybeline's Lash Sensation mascara. We kept the lips nude and glossy with a slick of Maxfactor 839 'Maple'. 

I don't wanna sound narcissistic but I feel Kel made me look kinda sexy and I never ever look sexy. I think it's all down to the smoky eyes. I'm converted. I was planning on getting the Naked 3 palette for myself for Christmas but I think it's going to have to be the Naked Smoky now, I'm already excited over the looks I could create with that!

Let me know in the comments if you like to wear a dark smoky eye and if so what products you use!

PS, is it just me or does the spelling 'smoky' look so wrong? I feel it needs an 'e' but apparantly that's incorrect. Who knew? Not even me, an English teacher! bahaha.
