Subtle Smokey Eyes
I am so sorry for such a lack of posts recently. I can’t really remember the last time I went about a week without blogging. Basically my camera lens has had it so right now I can’t really take any new photos for my blog which is so annoying as I keep thinking of so many posts that I want to write. And I am in the process of shopping for a new camera lens but they are pretty expensive and it is not something that I want to rush into.
Anyway, excuses aside I found some photos from a makeup look that I did a while back that I thought I could share with you.
I would describe this makeup look as being a subtle smkey eye, perfect for a night out but not something really full one. To get this look I used a natural glowy base and kept the rest of my makeup very minimal as I wanted the eyes to be the focal point.
For the eyeshadow I blended light natural browns into a darker grey shade for a gradient effect. I then used a thin line of black liquid liner on my top lashes for extra definition. And then for a more smokey effect I slightly smudged a black pencil liner on my bottom lashes. To finish off with I used loads of mascara for a really fluttery effect.
And here is me still learning to use my straigheners to do curls. Although I feel like I have finally mastered loose waves with straighteners. One side is always better than the other though, anyone else have that problem?!
Hope everyone is having a lovely Sunday. After stressful coursework deadlines I am finally back home with my family. It’s so lovely being back here with my double bed and good food. And the weather is actually really lovely too.
Speak soon, hopefully when I have a lovely new camera lens!
