Hello beauties!! Today I have a special treat for you! A guest blogger from my BFF & consequently the blogger who peer pressured me into creating a blog of my own [Thx, Ash! Muah!!]. Without out further ado, Ashley of ~*The Pretty Pisces*~.
"Hey Karma's readers!! I'm Ashley from The Pretty Pisces and I want to thank Karma so much for inviting me to guest post on her blog. Today I want to show you how to get an easy smokey eye with a pop of color!
I'll be using the Wet N Wild 6 pan palette in "Lust", but you can use any shadows that are dupes.
First, apply an eyeshadow primer and apply a gray base to your lid. I'm using a no-name cream shadow.
Next, apply a purple cream shadow in the cream. I'm using Maybelline's Color Tattoo in Painted Purple. You want to use bases to make the shadows really pop.
Using a fluffy crease brush, blend shadow #3 into the crease over the color tattoo. Next, pat shadow #4 all over your lid. So there's not a harsh line, blend where the two colors meet.
Place shadow #5 into the outer corner to add depth. You can blend it into your crease more if that's the look you desire.
Use a shadow that's similar to your skin tone to buff out the harsh line of the purple and blend it into your brow for a slight highlight. I'm using a shimmery shadow by Black Radiance.
Apply your favorite eyeliner and mascara. Add lashes for a more dramatic look! Groom and fill in those eyebrows!
Since the eyes are dramatic, I wanted to keep the rest of the face neutral. I used Wet N Wild's Megalast lipstick in Mocha-licious and Wet N Wild's blush in Mellow Wine.
Thanks so much for reading! Check out my blog if you liked this look! "
