Sixth Make-Up Look of X-Mas 2012 - Brown Smoky Eyes and Dark Pink Lipstick

 I like to use lighter shades of brown for the more casual brown smoky effect. Brown is a little less dramatic than black, and looks good on everyone from light complexions to dark. For this look I’ve paired it with a deep dark pink, which gives a luxurious finish and makes it perfect for the X-mas party.

Products used and Step-by-Step application

Smashbox Camera Ready BB Cream - primer
MAC Studio Tech Foundation in NW20
MAC Studio Finish Concealer in NW15 – to highlight and even out skin tone (applied on middle of the forehead, nose bone, under the eye, chin)

Step 1
MAC Pigment in Vanilla - apply over the eye area as a base and in the inner V of the eyelid
Inglot AMC Shine 12 – coppery brown red with sheen and copper glitter – apply to the eye lid and blend inwards and outwards.
Step 3
Apply the same eye shadow to the lower lash line with a pencil brush
Step 4
Urban decay 24/7 eyeliner in Corrupt, dark brown  – apply along  the upper lash line, the  outer V-Corner and lower lash line h
Step 5
Blend the eyeliner in upwards and outwards in circular motion together with the eyeshadow using pencil or smudger brush
Step 6
Apply two coats of black mascara (L'Oreal Lash Architect 4D Mascara – Black)

Step 7
Apply matte highlighter or concealer (I used MAC Studio Finish Concealer in NW15) straight down the middle of your nose, the triangle under the eyes, the forehead and chin
set the makeup  with a translucent powder using a powder brush
Step  8
