Christmas Post - Smokey eye party look

Hi Beauts.

Today I wanted to join in the blogmas fun and do a Christmas post. I was playing about with some make up (as you do) and came up with this black smokey eye with a pop of gold:

You could use any colour glitter along the lower lashline, I've done a similar look and used purple and silver before and I think it looked pretty cool. If I may say so myself ;P

Here's what I used:

* After applying a base to make sure my eyeshadow would stay put all night, I used MAC Blanc Type all over my lid up to my brow as a base colour

* Then taking FashionistA bronzer in LA on a fluffy brush, I applied this to my crease to help blend the other shadows I used

* Next I used MAC Scene on a flat shadow brush and packed the colour all over my lid, then used the fluffy brush to blend out the edges

* To add a little more depth to the look I applied MUA shade 20 (a matte black) to my outer V and blended into the crease (it looked a little darker in person than the picture)

* For the pop of gold, I used Maybelline color tattoo in 24k Gold on a small angled brush and ran it along my lower lashline

* Finally I applied a little winged liner and mascara and I was good to go

(A full line of liquid liner along the upper lashine, and  a black pencil liner along the water line and tighline could make this look more intense)

Hope you enjoyed Beauts
