It’s time for another round of “Make Me Pretty”!  This month, Vicki from Domestic Mamma picked a smoky eye tutorial.  I have always wanted to master a sultry, smoky eye, so I was excited to give it a shot.

Here are the supplies I used for the smoky eye:

I used an eye shadow base (similar to skin tone), a dark smoky shadow, black eye liner, a pink shimmery shadow, a high light color and mascara.

I started by applying an eye shadow base onto the eyelid.

OMG I hate taking self portraits…especially with my eyes closed!

Next, I packed the dark smoky shadow onto the brush and applied to the eyelid.  During this, I made sure to “press” the shadow on to avoid have specks of shadow all over my cheek (learned that the hard way).  Then I blended it out to the crease of my eyelid.

Next, I applied black eyeliner along the top lash line and all along the bottom water line.

Then, I applied a pink shimmer on the outer corner and blended that in.  Next, it was time to high light along the brow bone.

I then applied the smoky shadow under my eye, and applied mascara.

Here is the before and after:

While the smoky eye might be something I will try again for special occasions, it is a little much for me to wear too often.  I was also paranoid all night that it was going to start smudgeing all over my face (it didn’t).  Also, HJ asked why I painted my eyes.  I can’t imagine that  means I looked awesome.

And yes, I did eventually do my hair for a night out on the town.

This picture makes me realize it’s time to get my hair thinned out, yikes!
