              Creating an intensive smokey eye once in a while is purely amazing as it tests your blending skills, capability of colors, AND bravery of contrasting hues! From beet red to shimmering gold, it can easily be said Lilz over here had a BLAST (when it comes to dark colors my blending is quick, thus this smokey eye took 12 minutes total), please read carefully and without a doubt I guarantee you will too :). First off, with any dramatic eye makeup look eyebrows are an absolute must! Wether you choose soft arches or dramatic triangle shapes, definition is needed. I went for my typical Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Definer in Caramel simply because it is a quick mechanism to handle and get’s the job done, spoolies and all!  AS far as an eyeshadow base goes, view the screenshot to your left, I used a variety of two contrasting shades; black & white. Why you might ask? Concisely put the white acts as a shadow brightener for the “colorful” hues, and the black acts as a strong base for the deep shadows forming a beautiful halo eye effect on my lids. Anyhoooo, once my brows were completed I smudged on Nyx’s Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk across both my lids and blended the thick creamy white up towards my brow bones and under my lower lash line using my ring finger! Then, using a lipstick brush by Sephora (apart of a 2013 Christmas set) I dipped into Nyx’s Black Eyeshadow Base and “outlined” my lids followed by a thorough filling in using firm patting motions. Be sure to NOT mix anything with this black eyeshadow base, that means when the first crease shade arrives work slightly and cautiously, this must not blend out! Speaking of the first crease shade, Creme Brulee by Makeup Geek a beautiful sandy shade with a soft matte finish was VERY lightly eased into my crease using a Morphe E22 Pointed Blender brush.  I find using the fluffier blending brushes with light pressure (almost dusting across) BEST when it comes to wanting a light transitional hue! To begin adding decent pigment to my crease I switched my fluffy blender to a M433 Morphe Brush and trasntioned into ‘Bitten‘ by once more, Makeup Geek. The rustic red was softly blended into the inner V of my eye socket, this time around BEING ABLE to blend in with Nyx’s Black Eyeshadow Base; try working from the outer corner of your lid and dragging the shadow at hand into the inner third!  Due to Bitten leaning slightly purple depending on the array of colors chosen in total, I decided to pick up Muse by Lime Crime’s Venus Pallet and gently dust over Bitten with soft circular blends– try to keep em’ light and fluffy.
