Really. I couldn’t think of a more straight forward title. LOL! I blame the late night writing, and the extremely polluted air that has been messing with my mind, eyes and nose. If you’re not from around here, you may or may not know that we have a really bad haze problem. It is from the smoke that blew toward our country, from some neighbouring country that likes to play with fire every year. People with asthma get more frequent attacks, and I get pretty bad allergic reaction, since my nose is sensitive. Rant over.
There was a function over high tea on Sunday, and I decided to wear something I like to call soft smokey. Everyone can wear it because it’s brown and neutral, and it is flattering on everyone! Here are the products I used:
Firstly, I used Dior Radiant Base all over my face before applying some concealer where I needed it. I contoured using Bobbi Brown Summer Tan and prepped my cheeks with Pale Pink as a base. I swept a setting powder from Lunasol all over my face before using Dior Paradise Duo Pink Glow on my cheeks. That’s it for my face. Quite simple, really. I filled in my brows with Bobbi Brown brow kit and used Bobbi Brown Nude Beige on my lips.
Now for the smokey eyes. I used Urban Decay Wasteland as a base before using the vintage Dior Impression Cuir Leather Couture For The Eyes. There are 3 shades, a dark sooty brown, a shimmery bronze and a midtone beige. With the dark brown, I applied it all over my lids on top of Wasteland. With the lightest shade which is a midtone beige, I applied it at the inner corners of my eyes. Using the middle shade which is a light bronze, I blended out harsh edges and used the same shade on my lower lash line. I lined my bottom lash line with Benefit Eye Bright to brighten up the area. Instead of using a black liner, I chose to use grey on my upper lash line. To finish the look, I applied 3 coats of mascara on curled lashes and I’m done.
Here is the final look:
I have been wearing Dior Impression Cuir Leather Couture For The Eyes a lot, and this is one of my go to smokey eyes of late. Also, I’ve been loving my new necklace! It is quite heavy on my neck, but I don’t have anything like it. I have a lot of monotones in my wardrobe, and I wear blacks and greys a lot, so this helps break the boring. I hope you liked today’s look. I have a couple more for you because I’ve been getting bored of reviews. Stay tuned!
