While I could stand here and brag about HOW easy creating this glittered smokey eye was, you loves know I am not of that level. I will however, brag about how sensational my two new eyeshadow pallets are! Not only do they have cool tones, they feature warm tones, shimmer textures, MATTE textures, and even glitter textures. Can’t wait to post my gift guide next week. I mean…what? Just after defining my brows with the Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade product in Auburn, I flipped open the Ciate London X Chloe Morello Beauty Haul Eyeshadow pallet, and went to town! Each color ties into each other, so really all you will need is one sturdy blending brush, and one flat shader brush. Speaking of a blending brush, picking up Morphe’s M433, I softly swirled into Skinny Dip, and proceeded to buff it into my crease with gentle circular blends disbursing upwards, and under my lower lash lines. From there I switched to On Fire, which features a warmer tone, and with ample pressure I blended it into my crease starting from the inner corners of my eyes, rainbowing to the outer thirds– this is meant to be a ROUNDED smokey eye, not a sharp cut blend. To further the definition my outer c yielded, I mixed Queen Bee, with Cyprus Umber from the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Eyeshadow Pallet, and with a Sephora #18 brush, I carefully patted my custom shade onto the outer thirds of my lids, then I began dragging the color inwards following the natural creasing of my eye socket. Excess product was taken onto my lower lash lines, followed by a smooth gliding of Mac’s Smolder Eye Kohl to my Waterlines! I find using the ABH brush helpful to buff things out further!
