Face of the Night - Silver Smokey Eye

Hello again!

Last night I did my makeup for a night out and was really happy with how it turned out so I thought I'd share the final look with you! It's quite similar to the Kim Kardashian inspired makeup look that I blogged about awhile ago (you can find the post HERE...the pictures are much better quality too).

To create this look I focused on smudging gel eyeliner in my crease and outer eye whilst also blending in dark brown and black eyeshadow to create that smokey effect. I then applied a very white/silvery eyeshadow to the inner section of my lid, on the brown bone and on my tear ducts. To finish off the look I did a simple winged liner, using sticky tape on my outer eye to create a perfect crisp line.

I'm really happy with this makeup look that I invented (well, not invented but just created by messing around on a boring day...that's how it always happens haha). It really makes your eyes pop and is fantastic for a night out.

Products used on my face:

- MAC prep+prime primer
- Rimmel Match Perfection foundation in "Warm Honey" mixed with Bourjois Healthy Mix foundation in "Beige" (I fake tanned and didn't have the right colour so I had to mix them)
- Maybelline Age Rewind concealer in "Medium Moyen"
- MAC eyeshadow in "Mystery" to fill in my eyebrows
- MAC clear brow gel
- MAC prep+prime eye primer in "Light"
- Maybelline eyeliner gel in "Blackest Black" to smudge in the crease
- Nude tude palette by theBalm using these colours: Sassy, Snobby, Serious, Sleek
- theBalm Schwing liquid eyeliner in "Black"
- Rimmel Stay Matte powder in "Translucent" #001
- Benefit Hoola bronzer
- MAC powder blush in "Pinch Me"
- Nude tude eyeshadow palette using the shade "Stand-offish" to highlight my cheekbones
- MAC cremesheen lipstick in the shade "Shy Girl"

What do you guys think of this look? Would you ever give it a go?
