Christmas party look: smokey eye :)

Hi everyone.
My real life has been getting in the way recently :) haha so I wasn't able to blog every day.
It feels weird, because I am used to adding posts daily, but December was BUSY for me!!!

Anyway... I created this black smokey eye look last weekend and my husband described it as the "black eye" look :) haha Well... I quite like it and I go for a very dark eye makeup quite often, especially for special occasions etc. What do you think? Is it too much? I tried to keep the lip colour neutral to balance it out.

Products used:

FACE: Rimmel match perfection foundation, liz earle concealer, Clarins Odyssey Face palette, Clarins Blush Prodige in Soft Peach, Liz Earle bronzer.
EYES: Naked 2 Palette, Bourjois 16h liner pinceau in black, Bourjois Queen Attitude Kajal and mascara.
EYEBROWS: Look beauty Brow Kit
LIPS: Look Beauty Pro Palette-the shades don't have names :/ I used the pink one, you can see the palette in my haul post here.

  4. Beautiful. We all need a signature smokey. I feel a little funny taking a break from blogging too. It has certainly become a part of my life.

  11. Pretty :)

    I tend to go for less eye and a bold lip. Mainly because I am a bit useless at a smokey eye! x
