Happy Turkey Day Divas!!!

Happy Turkey Day Divas!! Now that you have slaved over the stove the absolute last thing u wanna have to decide is what makeup to wear, right??? So lets make it simple today. Go for that smokey look its so great for the weather & so sexy not to mention. Make sure to remember to take it easy with dark colors b/c its always best to start with LESS than to have MORE & have a too dramatic look. Check out the tuitorial on my page to achieve

Heres my favorite smokey eye I have 2 versions with black & chestnut brown



Step One: Prepare the Eye Lid
To avoid your eyeshadow sitting in the crease of your eye and to create a longer lasting look prep your eye lid with an eye shadow base / primer. The primer I like to use is mine of course from my shesfabb collection.  I have tried tar & a few others but im sticking with mine LITERALLY!!

Step 2: Apply Eyeliner
Use an eye-liner pencil (black or gray looks best) to trace your top lashline from the inner corner right out to the outer corner. Make the line a bit thicker at the outer middle part of your eye. Then, use the same pencil to dot between your lower lashes. Smudge both lashlines with a cotton bud or an eyeliner brush. The eyeliner I like to use is  Soft Kohl  Liner Pencil in Black as it is great for smudging and easy to apply.

Step 3: Apply a Light Base Colour
Apply a light base colour all over the eye lid and right up to the brow bone. Choose a base colour with shimmer for a more dramatic evening look. Pigement works great after all.

Step 4: Blend in a Darker Colour
Next, apply a darker eye shadow (brown, gray and dark green all work with black or gray eye-liner) over your lid and into your crease, remembering to stop the deep colour at the crease. The key here is to Blend – Make sure to blend color into the lash line so the eye liner disappears and blend the color up and outward.

Step 5: Under They Eye
Do the same on your bottom lash line by adding darker eye shadow, however, you will not want to apply very much shadow or go more than a few millimeters below the lash line or you will get that dreaded “black eye” look. Less is more.

Step 6: Apply Lashings of Mascara.
To create a more dramatic look apply a few coats of mascara so lashes are thick and dark. My favorite mascara for evening is Covergirl.
