Burgundy Smokes – EOTD & FOTD

Share on Facebook1Tweet about this on Twitter2Share on Google+1Pin on Pinterest4Email this to someone

The other day I was watching pixiwoo channel on YouTube and Sam did a look inspired by Kristen Stewart, where she did a smokey look using MAC Cranberry Eyeshadow. Since I do not have Cranberry, I used similar looking shade from Inglot which is Inglot Eyeshadow 452DSC08465

Steps -

  1. I started with applying Maybelline Lasting Drama Gel liner on my eyelids, blending it softly into the crease.
  2. Applied Inglot 452 Eyeshadow in inner half of the lid and a Black eyeshadow on the outer half.
  3. Later I used a matte brown shade to blend both black and burgundy shade into the crease and remove harsh lines.
  4. Applied Maybelline Lasting Drama Gel liner closely to the upper and lower lash line. Blended it softly.
  5. Curled lashes and applied L’oreal 4D Mascara.

For face I have used:

  1. Bourjois BB Cream Foundtion
  2. MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural – Medium Deep
  3. Sleek Makeup Blush – Pomegranate 
  4. Benefit Silky Finish Lipstick – Nice Knickers..

After doing my makeup I asked my hubby “How am I looking” .. He replied “I don’t know but your face looks red” ….  I told him “Its not red its blush, I shouldn’t have asked you” :/

I guess my hubby needs some makeup lessons :p .. Has this ever happened to you too?

    Everytime I wear smokey eyes…..my fiance is like…what is so fascinating about wearing makeup that looks like as if you have a black eye :D
    I guess all guys are the same when it come to makeup…
