Shimmery Taupe Smokey Eye with a pop of Beautiful Iris!

This makeup look is inspired by two makeup gurus…Julie San Augustin aka Pala_Foxxia from Instagram who is one of my favorite makeup artists of all time and Still Glamorous from Youtube who is just sooo flawlessly beautiful ! I really like this combination of silvery taupe and this amazing bright lavender color. The lavender really brings out the green in my eyes (even though they are hazel :P) but I think this color would look gorgeous in any eye color. Sooo let’s see how I achieved this look!

~I primed my lid with Nars smudgeproof eyeshadow base and then applied Maybelline color tattoo in Tough as Taupe on my lid

~I then applied  MakeupGeek Moondust sprayed with Fix+ on my lid keeping a gap in the inner corner

~I blended any harsh lines with MakeupGeek Creme Brule

~Then I applied MakeupGeek Cocoa Bear on my crease blending out inwards and up

*As you can tell I can’t live without my MakeupGeek Creme Brule and Cocoa Bear!  Use them on almost all my looks!

~Then I applied LORAC Deep Purple which is a shimmery dark purple on the outer corner (you can totally use a black or dark brown)

~Don’t forget to blend!!

~Then I applied the color of the day- MAC Beautiful Iris on the inner corner taking it down to the inner part of the lower lash line

~On the lower lashline I then mimicked what I did on the lid- applied Moondust in the middle and Deep Purple in the outer corner

~Applied Mac Brule on the browbone

~Lined my upper lash line with a liquid liner ( I think this one was a Elf one) and made a semi thick line and a wing

~Lined my waterline with a black pencil

~Applied mascara (Maybelline Mega Plush Volume Express) and applied falsies (Miss Adoro Demi Wispies)

 

*I have two lip options for this look ! Check it out below:

You can wear this look with a pinky nude lipstick for the daytime and it’s very appropriate for Spring. I’m wearing MAC Brave, one of my favorite nudes!

You can also pair this look with a dark lip and vamp it up for the night…a great look for the Fall here in Australia. Here I’m wearing MAC Diva but you can go even darker maybe do a ombre lip with a dark lip liner!

I just love the versatility of this look and how it can be both a Spring and Fall look (the current seasons in the two hemisphere)!
