Smokey: By Popular Demand

I think every girl loves a smoky eye look.  Almost every celeb and model is sporting this classy and sophisticated look these days.  This trend in makeup has yet to die.  So I thought I would show you how to create the look for yourself! 

The key to a smoky eye is the technique and blending.  Not necessarily the color (most people think black!).  Use the eye shadow colors below and you too can rock this gorgeous look for yourself!  Send me pics so I can see J.
Studio Finish Concealer – Use this as your highlight color on the entire brow bone.  Apply with MAC’s 212 Flat Brush.  You want to define your eyebrow with the color and brush.
Espresso eye shadow - to fill in the eyebrows
Painterly Paint Pot – Apply on the inner, middle, and outer part of lid.
Saddle eye shadow – Above the crease but below the brow bone.  Make sure to work the color in and not out.                                                                                                                                                                                                           
Carbon eye shadow – on the outer crease (work the color in with a 217 blending brush (think outer V formation)
Nylon eye shadow - over top of paint in the inner half of lid only
Blacktrack Fluidline Eye liner gel - upper lash line
Smolder eye khol pencil – Line the waterline and lower lash line.  It’s okay if it looks extra heavy.  Just blend it out with a 219 pencil brush

False lashes (#2) and Duo Adhesive
Studio Fix Foundation
Mineralize Skinfinish Powder (over top of the foundation)

I know, I know..All MAC products again..promise I will experiment with others soon.  I hate the pic below..but I wanted you to see the full lid. :)
