Face of the Day–Smokey Look!

So at the weekend I bought you a mini review and swatches of the Lancome Hypnose product and now I thought I’d show off just how beautiful it looks in a ‘Face of the Day’.  This is definitely the type of smokey eye look like I like to wear daily, but it also works beautifully as an evening look with a little black dress – oscar worthy!

This is the look I am wearing in my ‘New Makeup Storage’ video so check it out there as well.
Products Used
- Cover FX Total Cover Cream Foundation
- Collection 2000 Concealer 
- Rimmel Stay Matte Powder
- Lancome Hypnose Palette
- Zoova Liquid Eye Liner
- Avon Supershock Eyeliner
- Rimmel Brow Pencil
- Clinique High Impact Extreme Mascara
- Zoeva Blush in Peach Bouquet
- MAC’s Pattisserie lipstick
I’m not going to try and write out exactly what I did because no one will ever read it, but I built up the eye shadows from the Lancome palette, on my eye – using the lightest shades as a base and the dark shades on the outer corners.  I liner my top lash line with the Zoeva Liquid Liner and bottom line with the Avon Supershock Pencil.  Finally I finished with mascara, then applied foundation, concealer and powder! 
I adore this look and have been wearing it quite a lot – varying the heaviness of the eye shadow depending on the occasion. 
Which eye shadows do you use to create a smokey look?  Would you like to see more ‘looks’ of mine?
I bought a few of the products above with a gift voucher supplied to me by Ladbrokes, who had just launched their Diamond Slot Game!   The look however was created solely by myself!

  7. That mascara really is gorgeous!


  8. Your eyes look beautiful with those eyeshadows. I normally use mac eyeshadows to create a smokey look. Recently I have been using brown shades from the "In the light" Stila palette to create a deep brown smokey look. It looks fab. I would also love to see more looks of yours.
