Gunmetal

Hey, Everyone!

It's been a while since I've done a blog post, and I've missed you!  There are a special few of you that check in on me while I am away, and I really appreciate it.  Some of my dearest friends are my fellow bloggers and I don't know what I would do without you.  Thank you so much for being awesome and I hope you all had a wonderful new year!!

For this week's makeup look, I wanted to do a simple smoky eye using some shadows from the E.L.F. NYC Baked Eyeshadow palette.  This look features the metallic gunmetal shade; it's shimmery, sultry, and gorgeous!
The E.L.F. Baked Eyeshadow palettes are some of my favorites.  I love the assortment of shadows, and they are extremely affordable ($10).  I've collected a few of these palettes over the years, and I love them!

Let's see the look:




EYES:

♥ UDPP
♥ Nyx Jumbo Pencil in Cashmere to lid
♥ Nyx Jumbo Pencil in Slate to lower lash line
♥ Ulta Shadow in Naked (Matte Vanilla) from brow bone to crease


♥ Shadow 1 (shimmering white) to inner corner
♥ Shadow 2 (gunmetal) to lid, blended up to crease
♥ Shadow 3 (metallic bronze) to crease
♥ Shadow 4 (metallic brown) to outer V, and edge of lower lash line
♥ Shadow 5 (shimmering gold) as transition color, above crease
♥ Black eyeliner to lash and waterline
♥ Black mascara
♥ Red Cherry 415 Lashes


FOUNDATION & BLUSH:

♥ Maybelline Fit Me Foundation in 120
♥ Maybelline Fit Me Foundation in 355 for Contour
♥ L'Oreal Perfect Match Pressed Powder
♥ Ulta Blush in Girlie


LIPS:

♥ Wet N' Wild Lip Liner in Willow
(This is my new favorite lip liner!!)
♥ Starlooks Lip Gloss in Guilty Pleasure


And there you have it.  An easy smoky eye that is captivating on a cold night. ☺
What are your favorite shadows to use for a quick smokey eye?
Thank you so much for stopping by, I truly love it when you do!
Wishing you the very best ♥
xoxo,
