FOTD: Daytime Smokey Eye

23 April 2014

daytime smokey eye I’m not going to lie, most mornings I barely have enough time to have a shower and slap on a bit of concealer, never mind a full-blown smokey eye. However, I’ve bought the motherlode in beauty products recently and today I forewent the extra few minutes lying in my pit to make a bit of an effort for the office. I decided to do a quick and simple brown smokey eye to add a bit of definition to my haggered face. Is it just me but do you always feel a little awkward putting on a bit more makeup at work? I always get teased by the boys and my manager thinks I’ve got an interview elsewhere. There are so many bright lipsticks I want to wear during the week which are shunned until the weekend for fear of the comments.daytime smokey eyeAfter prepping my face, I popped NARS Sheer Glow in Barcelona to even out my skin tone. As I type this, I’ve just realised I forgot to put concealer on (well done, stupid!) but the foundation seemed to mostly cover up my offensive dark bags. This shade is slightly too light for me so I lightly contoured with the bronzer from my Sleek Face Form palette in Medium to add a little life back to my face. A little bit of Accessorize Baked Blusher in Scandal (review here) finished off my complexion. I lightly filled in my brows with Natural Collection Eyeshadow in Crushed Walnut which is a great multi-tasking colour. I used the same eyeshadow as the base for my smokey eye which is perfect for adding a little bit of definition without going overboard. I blended KIKO Eyeshadow in Pearly Cocoa (which I used for the first time, I was blown away by its quality, and it’s only £2.90!). I added a quick flick of liner using Maybelline Eye Studio Lasting Drama gel liner in Black and finished it all off with 17 Falsifeye mascara in Black. A quick slick of my beloved Carmex Moisture Plus Ultra Hydrating lip balm in Pink Sheer Tint (review here).
