Hi guys! This is my take on a multi-toned smokey eyes that is appropriate in the cold weather like this. I wore this during the day but I could see how it would be more of a night time look for most people.

I did some makeup haulage after a while yesterday so look up for that post coming up in the next few days. In the meantime, here's my "daytime" smokey look:

What I used:

For Face: Used Nars Sheer Matte (Fiji) as my foundation a dusting of Ben Nye Translucent Powder. Then I dusted Nars Deep Throat blush on the apple of my cheeks.

For eyes: Used UDPP as base and then applied a layer of Maybelline Rich as Mahogany Color Tattoo on the lid. I damped the brush with mixing medium and added MAC Blue Brown pigment in the middle lid. Applied Inglot AMC Shine #40 e/s in inner and outer crease and Inglot Matte #371 e/s above crease. Added MAC Blanc Type e/s as highlight and MAC Aquavert (LE- pale aqua) as tearduct brightener. I lined my lower lashline with MUFE #20 Aqua Pot and my lashline with a thin layer of Lancome Black Artliner . I finished with two coats of Lancome Hypnose Drama mascara.

For lips: kept it soft and pink with a layer of Nars Montego Bay matte lipstick followed by MAC Live n Dye l/g (LE - light peach).

Outfit of the day was a deep purple coloured interlock dress by American Apparel. I love the AA interlock dresses and have them in a few colours. Wool tights are by Hue (via the Bay) and boots are a Winners find:

    Shayla - thank you <3 Interlock is just how it holds the cleavage. Good for busty girls like me, there's never any spillage :D
