Hello my darlings :) I was playing around with some make-up looks and wanted to share this dramatic sparkly/smokey eye look with you guys. I normally like to wear fairly natural looking make-up on a day to day basis, so enjoyed playing around with a more heavy eye look for a change.
Face - To begin this look I mixed my BB cream with Revlon skinlights and applied this all over my face with a beaut blender to give a nice glowy look. I then used my MAC prep & prime stick in lightboost to highlight underneath my eyes.
For contour I used the darkest brown shade of bronzer from the natural collection. I applied this below my cheekbones, around my forehead and underneath my chin. I also used the same powder to contour my nose. I really like how this powder isn't too orangey or dark, it's more of a neutral brown tone :-) for blush I used one of the matt pink colours from my eBay blush palette.
Eyes - First I preped my eyelids with Urban Decay's eye shadow base. I currently have a sample sachet of this, which has lasted me quite a while :-) a little goes a long way. I will definitely be purchasing the full size product once my sample has run out!
I then used a matt brown eye shadow in my crease from my smashbox full exposure palette and blended this out nicely using the fluffy end of the brush, included in the palette. After this I carefully added a couple of layers of the black shadow from the same palette. The key was then to really blend blend blend! I then went ahead and applied the silver eye shadow which is from Sephora (sorry I don't know the exact colour, i've had the eyeshadow for so long the writing has rubbed off). Before applying the silver shimmery colour, I dipped my brush in eye drops. This make the eye shadow come out a lot brighter and pigmented which looks great! It has a similar effect as MAC fix plus.
To line my lashline I used my fav gel liner from Rimmel, I then applied Ardel lashes to finish the eyes.

- Maybelline BB cream - Medium
-Revlon Skinlights - barelight
-MAC prep+prime highlighter - lightboost
-Natural collection bronzing powder - golden glow
-MUA lip balm
-Smashbox full exposure palette
- Sephora eyeshadow
