Shimmery Brown Smokey Eye

Now that I've gone back to blonde hair, I've loved wearing brown smokey eye looks because I feel like they look so classy and natural (Don't mind my messy hair, it was drying from my shower). I really enjoyed this look, as I created it on the spot, and I'm happy I got to share it with you. For my face base I used Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Dark Circle Eraser Concealer in Neutralizer wherever I wanted to highlight/conceal, which I then set with the NYX Mineral Matte Finishing Powder in Light/Medium. Later I used my Nars All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation in the shade Syracuse on the majority of my face and neck to get an even colouring and then I set it with my Rimmel Stay Matte Powder Foundation in Silky Beige.

For my eyes I used my Urban Decay Naked Palette, along with some MAC shadows. For the base I started with Buck from the Naked Palette all over the lid and crease using my Morphe E17 brush, then I went over the crease using smog - also from the Naked Palette, using my Morphe E24 brush and then blending with the E17 again before lining my lower lash line with this shadow. To highlight my brow I used the shade Virgin from the Naked Palette using my Morphe E40 brush. Then, to highlight my inner corner I used MAC Retrospeck, I also put a layer of this all over my lid before covering it with MAC's Gleam eyeshadow. I then lined my eyes with a black gel liner from Maybelline, and then applied the Maybelline Mega Plush Mascara to my lashes. My brows were filled in using the Anastasia Beverly Hills Dip Brow in Granite. 

On my cheeks I used the Annabelle blush in Fard A Houes Blushion and I used Becca Cosmetics' Champagne Pop to highlight my cheekbones. My contour was done using a Jordane Cosmetics Foundation in Medium/Dark

I lined my lips with a NYX Lip liner in MPL11 Red and then filled them in with the ColourPop Lippie Stix in Lady...and that's about it!

I’m a twenty year old university student from Canada based between Brampton and Mississauga.

I’m also a travel enthusiast, traveling AT LEAST twice a year. I prefer Fall to Summer, I have a serious relationship with cookie dough ice cream (especially Ben & Jerry’s), and I leave a trail of shoes around my home!

I also love early morning yoga, dining out with friends, and I have a slight addiction to piercings and tattoos.

On my blog, you can expect to see the majority of my posts surrounding makeup or skin care as those are my two biggest passions. I love getting creative with makeup and sharing my looks with you all, and I especially love testing out new skin care products and creating my own products at home.

My long term goal is to start my own skin care line using 100% organic and natural products for all skin types, and I’ll be sharing my journey to achieving this goal with you all on my blog as well as my YouTube channel (linked below).
