EOTD; Grey-Blue Smokey Eye Trial

Sar's blog is one of my fave's, I learn a lot from her and her topics are always very appealing to me. She made a contest last week, for the best smokey eye. I'm not a makeup expert, especially when it comes to eye makeup and eye shadows, I really suck :P But I would never miss her contest, so I tried a smokey eye. This is my very first smokey eye trial, so don't be too harsh when criticizing :P

I thought people will choose black as it is the regular smokey color, so I thought of doing something more colorful.. Plus I had the desire to try my Arctic Grey e/s for days :P It is a gorgeous color seriously. I'm glad I decided to buy Arctic Grey instead of Vex :)

Anyway, I liked the result actually, I have never used a blue e/s in my life, I still think it doesn't look good on me, but hey, I think I might have found a way to use it with this :P

Alright, here are the stuff I used: (All MAC, except Lancome Cils Booster XL mascara base)

  • Under eye: Select Moisturecover concealer
  • On eyelid, as a base: Blacktrack fluidline (Because I wanted to use a black base and I didn't have any other)
  • Inner corner: Vanilla pigment
  • Right next to inner corner: Arctic Grey e/s (LE)
  • On eyelid: Tilt e/s
  • Outer V: Black mineral e/s from Danger Zone trio
  • Under brow: Shroom e/s
  • Eyeliner: Blacktrack + Carbon e/s
  • Waterline: Graphblack technakohl liner
  • Lower lash line: First black mineral e/s from Danger Zone trio, then tilt on top of it, through 2/3 of the line, then I used Arctic Grey from inner corner to 1/3
  • Mascara: Lancome Cils Booster XL + Zoomlash
I know, I always forget curling my eyelashes, they are straight like an arrow :P I should at least try to remember curling them, cos they don't look good this way. Aaand please ignore my crazy eyebrows :P

I'm waiting for comments :) Please don't be too harsh heheh :P
