Smokey Eyes & Time for Wine

Bonjour les filles :))

Today, I'm going back to my challenge and showcasing a plummy smokey eye evening look I wore a few weeks ago to a day of various celebratory functions. At the beginning of the month, I challenged myself to incorporate different cosmetics brands into my makeup repertoire, as I had mostly been using Urban Decay for a lot of my makeup looks. Branching out to other makeup brands has been really fun and I've rediscovered a ton of great products that are both easy to use and easy to obtain. Who says you need fancy makeup to look fancy? Drug store makeup will do just fine ;)

To achieve this EYE makeup look, I used: 
  • Maybelline quad in "Time for Wine" (notice that the flesh tone eyeshadow says "LID"). I used the top purple all over my lid (originally meant for the crease); bottom brownish purple for the outer "v" and under the lower lash line (meant for the outer corner); flesh tone color to blend out the crease (meant for the lid); and the iridescent pink for the inner corner (meant for the brow bone). I love this quad because the eyeshadows are very pigmented and the colors are rich and flattering.
  • Maybelline gel liner in Eggplant Aubergine
  • NYX glitter liner in Gold--inner corner
  • Andrea lashes #45
  • L'Oréal Telescopic mascara in Blackest Black on my lower lashes
For the LIPS, I used:
  • Carlo di Rossi lipliner in 03
  • MAC amplified creme lipstick in Warm Me Up (as a base)
  • Revlon colorburst lipstick in Soft Nude (center of the mouth)--I love this color but it is too light for my summer skin, so I had to darken it with Warm Me Up

These Andrea lashes are very long and curvy--I love this pair for evening smokey eye looks

Me and my bestie Gina. Can you tell the difference between the two pix? ;p
YES, Gina had a wardrobe change haha... In the pix above, we were attending our friend's baby shower after which we were to go to another friend's bday pool party at a hotel. My wardrobe change was quick and simple: coat checking my MJ cardigan to exposing my golden-beige bathing suit underneath--voila! 
I didn't get in the pool, but some of my friends did haha...
