Daytime Smokey Eye



Since my last post was a much more heavy night time smokey eye I decided to do a more day time look. To be quite honest I don't have an exact everyday look that I wear all the time. I do wear eyeshadow most days but not the same look, it really depends on my mood and what I'm wearing! So this is the look I wore on Sunday, it's super easy to do and it's a wearable brown smokey eye for the day time. I have kept it quite light on the skin too with my contour and highlighter. The sun had made an appearance so I didn't need much as the light would pick up on it. For this look I used different products than in my last post! If you would like to know how I achieved this look it is all listed below. In this post I'm going to go into more detail on how I used the products. Enjoy!

Face: I used the Flormar Illuminating primer. As my foundation I used Shade 4 from the SoSue Contour Kit. To conceal I used Shade 1 from the same palette. To apply my foundation & concealer I used a beauty blender in patting motions. To set my foundation & concealer I used Flormar loose setting powder. To contour my face I used Inglot pressed powder in 63. This is my absolute favourite at the moment! I then used Mac Matte bronzer. For my highlight I used the SoSu Highlight Kit in Unicorn Dust just above my bronzer. The blush I used was Mac Modern Manderin its a nice orange/peach tone and is perfect for summer as it is nice and bright! 

Eyes: As always I prime my eyelids with Urban Decay primer potion in the original shade. To set the primer I used Mac Brule eyeshadow. I used both Inglot eyeshadow 300 & Mac Uninterupted as my transition shade, I blended these eyeshadows slightly above the crease and underneath my eye. For my lid I pressed Espresso by Mac, I then used Mac Handwritten into the crease to blend this colour getting rid of any harsh lines. I applied my eyeliner next using my absolute favourite Inglot gel liner in 77. I wanted to blend my eyeliner into my eyeshadow to give it a softer look so I used Inglot eyeshadow 63 just on the outer corner of the eyeliner and blended it slightly. I then applied each stage again of my eyeshadow and blended out any harsh lines and repeated these colours underneath my eyes. I used NYX Jumbo eyeliner pencil in Milk in the waterline. This is a great trick for making your eyes appear bigger and it's perfect for during the day instead of using a black liner. The mascara I used was Rimmel Flash Mascara. I'm running low on my stock of lashes so I haven't applied any for this look!

Eyebrows: I wanted to give these their own seperate paragraph as the above section was getting a little long & I don't want to bore you all with my lenghty description of my makeup! Anyways, I've been using Inglot brow gel in Shade 15 for my eyebrows. I have been using this for awhile now, I do love the shade that it is but I will purchase shade 16 which is a cooler & dark shade for the areas where I don't have much eyebrow hair (due to overplucking in my teenage years!). I defined my brows a bit more by using a dark brown eyeshadow, mostly the end of my brow. 

Lips:  The lipliner I used is the one I  wear mostly everyday it works well with so many lipsticks and lipglosses and that is the famously Spice lipliner by Mac. If you don't have this in your makeupbag.. where have you been?! The lipstick I wore is another one of my favourites Faux by Mac. I actually bought this lipstick in the airport last year heading to Nerja for my sisters wedding. I have seen people wearing it all the time and it was just one of those I never got around to buying. I wore this the day of my sisters wedding, the colour went perfect with the colour of the bridesmaid dress!
