Alternative Smokey Eye




Taken END of the night- thanks primer!

***

Hey guys!
Last night I went to another 18th party, so I thought it would be a great chance to wear a livelier take on my favorite smokey eye look. I also had the perfect blue dress ever, but didn't want to just use a boring blue shadow. Therefore I teamed it with the most beautiful green shadow, and electric purple through the crease to really enhance my eyes and make them stand out. 

Eye shadows used:





MAC Mega Metal Shadow in 'Ego' 
Famous by Sue Moxley purple eye shadow shimmer in shade 12

To get this eye look I used a simple navy base, (on top of a good primer of course), and then I took the green across the lid, winging out slightly. I then took the purple through the crease and winged out, blending with the two colours. Blending for any smokey eye is absolute key as you don't want any harsh lines; you want the colours to jut fade into each other. The easiest way to do this is to take a clean brush and just blend outwards until your lines are even and not too severe. 'Ego' by MAC is literally my favorite shade ever. It is super pigmented and has great staying power. Its not a shade you can wear every day, but it makes a great evening look! Both shadows are also metallic with shimmer, therefore they work great together. Pair this with purple lips and a fantastic, dramatic and glamorous look is created.
