Brown smokey eyes15:34
Today's post is going to be a brown smokey eyes. I don't know why exactly I'm posting this in the spring time, but let's just say my recent purchase inspired me to a more harsher look. I actually didn't do this intentionally, it just felt right. My brown smokey eyes was inspired by my new skull bangle bracelet. I also really like wearing leather jacket in this fall to spring time. With it I also paired one of my DIY projects, the black and gold necklace. The reason I didn't post the tutorial of this necklace, is because it actually didn't came out as I expected it, but I've managed to wear it a bit differently.
I started with filling in my brows and putting light pink white highlighting shade in the inner corner of the eyes. I put matte black eyeshadow as a thick eyeliner above the eyelashes, then I blended it out and up.
I used dark brown matte eyeshadow above that black and blended the two together and out. As the last shade I put on a light brown matte shade a little above the crease and blended it out.
The dark brown shade I also put on the lower lid. Some of the black went into the outer corner to connect with the top. After that, the only thing missing, was heavy coat of mascara.
As for the rest of the face I left it really simple. Foundation and concealer, a bit of contouring with bronzer and some highlighter. No blush. For the lips I used warm nude lipstick.
I personally think that dark smokey eyes always looks better with matte eyeshadows. The brown was also a very natural choice for me, because it's one of the shades I wear the most. This smokey eyes is a bit less harsh then the typical black smokey eye. It will also suit better warm toned ladies, if you use warmer browns, like I did. This look can be perfect for a night out, with a bit more bronzer and maybe heavier lips. It all depends on your own comfort zone. Ia actually wore it out during the day time :).
I thought it would be nice to include my inspiration for this look. This is the skull bracelet from Ebay - sadly it's already losing its color (but that's what you get for 1€) and my DIY made necklace.
