WOC Look of the Day: Warm & Smokey Eyes

Hello dollfaces!  Thank Goodness Its Friday!  The past two weeks have been very busy for me.  It's been a while since I've done a look so I had to post it to the blog.  I wanted to use earth tone shadows and do a nude lip.  In my mind I was thinking "keep the look warm but still smokey." Its a subtle look that can easily be deepened with a darker shadow for more drama.  I think I'll call it "Sweet Sable."  As always, if there is a look you would like to see me recreate please email me at cj@makeupnotdown.com. I hope you enjoy.  YAY!

 
Eyes:
Espresso eye shadow - To fill in the eyebrows
Studio Finish Concealer NC45– On the entire lid from upper lash line to brow bone as a base.
Carbon eye shadow - In the crease
Amber Lights eye shadow - Pat on the entire lid and lower lash line
Blacktrack Fluidline Eye liner gel - To line upper lash line. 
Smolder eye pencil – To line the waterline.


Lashes:
Duo Lash Adhesive- Apply a thin strip to the lash line.
False lashes (#4) - Apply as close to the natural upper lash line as possible.
MAC Opulash Mascara - Apply before putting on false lashes. 


Face:
Matchmaster foundatin 7.0 - Apply with a 187 brush and start from the center of your face and blend out. 
Select Cover Up Concelear NC45 - Right underneath the eye to cover up dark circle.  Make sure to blend with a soft fluffy brush.
Mineralize Skinfinish Powder (over top of the foundation) - Use the same 187 brush and apply all over your face. 
Mineralize Skinfinish Powder (Sun Power) - Temples and face contour
Blot Powder Pressed - Dust it over the oily spots with a large powder brush and you are good to go.  I reapply this as much as needed throughout the day.
MAC Sheertone Shimmer Blush (Peachtwist) - Smile and apply to the apples of the cheeks

By the way, who says you can't create a nude lip with a brown lip liner?!?!  Hodgepodge lip liner is a great neutal brown that pairs well with any color gloss or lipstick.  I really loved Blankety, the MAC lipstick I used with the liner as well.  My lips are so dark and I've had the hardest time finding the perfect color that would conceal the darkness and lighten them.  What are your thoughts?  Will you try to recreate the entire look?
