Lately I’ve been super obsessed with a black smoky eye paired with nude lip.
I have been practicing and practicing trying to get it right. I thought I’d share my results with you guys along with what other lip colors could look great with this look.
Lets start off with some inspiration, …basically what this is supposed to look like.
@MakeupShayla does some really great eye work, I’m obsessed with her Instagram page.
love this look from @msdanti as well
@ots_beauty has another one of my fave smoky eye looks
Now lets get into it, here is my first attempt at it for this post.
To be honest, the eye shadow got a little funky when I was trying to put my lashes on and my eyes started watering (does anyone else have to put their lashes under, on their waterline instead of on top of their lashes?) , and I just didn’t do the steps in the order that I wanted to. My highlight is also a little bolder than I normally like. But it was an OK attempt I think.
