Daring and mysterious! For a Night out on the town, or a big birthday party bash. This look will have them wondering what you’ve been up to, and don’t be surprised with all those blokes handing you their numbers at the end of the evening. They just wanna get to know you a little better, mystery woman.
The fashion runways have displayed metallic colors, shimmer, gloss, and light reflecting colors. But the focus is darker and smudged. Grays, taupes, greens, browns, and berry but with an added edge. Lots of shimmer and glimmer in them. I’ve noticed the smoky eye is back by popular demand. Seen it in all the magazines, runway, and I’ve been getting a greater demand for it from my clients. What I’ve done differently with the smoky eye is added shimmer to it, or sometimes glitter powder. This gives it a more modern look, and brightens the eye a tad. I also apply green or light gray shadow on top of the darker smoky look to add depth, and mystery to the eyes. It’s a very sexy look. There must be a lot of concentration on the eyes with this look, so the focus should be here. Keep the high intensity with the eyes, so make sure the eyebrows, and eyelashes are well made up and groomed as well. Lips should be kept shimmery, sheer, and/or glossy, with added berry tones, pink tones, or neutral tones. The smoky eye is not for everyone, so don’t be alarmed if you give it a go, and it looks like you’ve been through a fight scene. It’s a little harder to achieve than the bare look. One more thing, emphasize should be on either lips or eyes, and not both.
Compliment the “smokin” eyes:
Cheeks: Apply a pink/brown blush on apples of cheeks and blend outwards. Go easy with blush, just a hint of color to give them a rosy glow. Mac prism is a nice neutral blush. Dust some bronzing powder with a light touch over cheeks or right under the blush for added depth.
Lips: Dab a shimmery lip gloss on lips with a hint of pink or berry in it. Use fingertips or lip brush to apply gloss. Try BLOOM lip glaze in glam or stila lip gloss in melon shine. Continue reading »
