The Shimmery Smokey Eye

My latest obsession- a smokey eye with a twist, as I never was one for convention or following trends. I love smokey eyes but recently I've starting adding a MAC glitter over the top to give it a bit of a twist and add colour. Its not 100% 'wearable,' although I have worn it to lectures- I just can't help myself I feel so confident with this makeup on- but its certainly pretty, eye catching and I always get a lot of compliments on it! Find out below what I use to create the look.
After applying my base which is currently Maybelline's Baby Skin Primer, Maybelline BB Cream, Maybelline Anti Age Under Eye Concealer and Bourjois Healthy Balance Powder, I like to add some colour. First up is Physician's Formula Shimmer Strips which go on the top of my cheek bones, applied with my ring finger. Next I go in with my NYC Big Bold Bronzer in Manhattan. One of my top drugstore products! Its huge! Then, for a pop of colour on the apples of my cheeks, I'm loving Trish McEvoy's Liquid Face Color.

For eyes, I use my Neutral Palette from Illamasqua with the pale 'Stealth' all over my lid and the black 'Obsidian' in the crease. I line my lids using Topshop's Gel Liner and Rimmel Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl in Black. Mascara is a Sample of an Hourglass mascara- can't say I'm, too impressed with it for the price tag but I want to use it up. I then finish the eyes with a dab of MAC's Reflects Glitter in Transparent Teal. For brows, I'm loving Sleek's Brow Kit and Illamasqua's Brow Gel to set them.

For lips I keep it simple and nude (with a holographic lipgloss which matches the reflects glitter) and thats the look! My new favourite, go to smokey eye!
