Paint by Numbers: Holiday Smoky Eye Makeup Look + Video
Today, I am going to talk about a smoky eye makeup look you can achieve in ten minutes using the Bobbi Brown Cool Party Eye Palette (sold at Sephora and BobbiBrown.com). The texture of these shadows is silky and luxurious like a good mink coat. Get purr-fect eyes today!
First, apply the Iced Blue Metallic shadow across the eyelids (see #1 in the photo). This shade is also very pretty and you can wear it alone during the daytime. Believe me, you won't be alone for long.
Then, use Gunmetal Shimmer Wash shadow(#2 in the photo) to softly line the top part of your eyelids along the lash line, but not the bottom. You can use the shadow brush that comes with the palette because the line can be blurry. Smudge the colors a touch with your fingers. Sweep the Gunmetal Shimmer shade inside the crease of your lid for extra depth.
Next, apply the darkest shade in the palette, Onyx Sparkle (#3), as a liner for the top outer corner of your eyes. Add a smidgeon to the bottom outer corner of your lash line too.
Finally, using a brush, gently line your inner bottom lash line with the White shadow (#4). This will make you look rested and gorgeous.
Top off your party-ready smoky eye look with sparkling hair accessories and a neutral lipstick. You are beautiful!
