Eyes Of the Day ~ Plum & Black Smokey

I realized I have not done any look since April! So today, I managed to do one...Yay! I melted in the heat a little while posing for my "photo shoot" in my balcony (where the good lighting is), but it was worth it. I wanted to talk about the eyes separately, so the other post won't get too long.
I used only 2 eyeshadows on the eyes: 

How To:
  • STEP 1: After priming my lid with Too Faced Shadow Insurance, I applied Inglot #72, a plum shade, on my lid till a little beyond my natural crease line
  • STEP 2: Next, with a pencil brush (with a pointy tip) I applied a matte black eyeshadow- Bourjois Intense Extrait #10 right in my crease & joined it with my lash line at the outer corners. Technique is the same as in the Winged Eyeshadow Tutorial, except without the wing. 
  • STEP 3: Blend the edges of the black with the plum shadow if needed.
  • STEP 4: I also applied both eyeshadow colors on my lower lash lines & I lined my top lash line with the same black shadow.
  • STEP 5: I tighlined my eyes with a IN2IT Black Gel Liner Pencil & also applied it on my lower lash line.
  • STEP 6:  I applied Doll Lash false lashes that are longer at the outer corners.
  • STEP 7: Maybelline The Falsies Mascara on top & bottom lashes 
  • Done!  

This make-up is strong/vampy off-camera. I look Annie Lennox-ish. Mr. CZ kept telling me to go wash it off, but I haven't till now. Well, I just took off the lashes.

Will post full look next week- Monday, probably. 

Hope you're all enjoying your weekend. Saturday night horror movie recommendation- 'The Pact'. Watched it last night & it's quite scary! =)

Ta-Ta.....

I ♥ finding little notes in my Vanity Case, so do drop one. I read all of them & I try my best to reply to each & every one of them [check back in 2-3 days =D] but most times it's physically impossible! Either way, I love to hear from you & really appreciate you taking the time out to share your thoughts <3

Thank you for reading! :)
