Hello beauties! As you know, I love a little drama on my eyes. I do bright and colourful looks here and there but my first love has always been (and will always be) seductive smokey eyes. And for that reason, I'm always on the hunt for a great smokey eyes base. A good dark base that does is easily smudge-able yet stays put is the fastest way to gorgeous smokey eyes. I test drove my brand new Annabelle Smudgepaint in Tar for this exact purpose this weekend. Here's what I got:
MUFE F&B - #32
Ben Nye powder
Prim n Proper blush
Shell Pearl bp
Annabelle Smudgepaint in Tar - base and to line
Nars Eurydice duo - charcoal shade on lid
Copperplate e/s - crease
Smoke n Diamonds e/s - above crease
Illegal Cargo e/s - tear duct
Blanc Type e/s - highlight
MUFE 12C l/l
Glamour for all l/g
The Smudgepaint comes in a small glass container with a plastic handle that includes an eyeliner brush:
The brush is ideal for multi-purpose lining AND smudging so you won't have to use your fingers or dirty up another brush. I find the product to be very smooth and it spreads easily and doesn't set to quick so there is enough time to get a nice even layer of paint on your lids. I loved this product for it multi-taksing and innovative packaging.
The only con I can think of was that it does not hold well on waterline. I guess it is because it's meant to be a smudge-y product. It excels as an upper/lower liner or as a base for smokey eyes though as seen above. At $10.95 CAD a pop, this is a great steal to me. I will be picking up other shades soon!
And just because I remembered, here's the simple outfit I wore with this look (well, simple for me, I meant!). the lace tube top is pretty old (think 2003) and I believe I got it from Le Chateau. The skirt I scored in end of summer sales at the Gap. I don't know what the heck I'm doing with my right arm so ignore that, lol!
