LFI: Smoky Eyes

Hello, my Pretties!

I've have been blogging and documenting most of my makeup looks for a little over a year now and I have never been able to successfully create a smoky eye.  That is, until now.  Well, maybe.

Here is a Look for Inspiration that I did attempting to do a smoky eye for the 1,000th time.


I have no idea why a smoky eye is so hard for me to do.  I've tried it so many times and each time it was a fail.  I think this look is the closest I have come to a successful smoky eye.  And it still needs some work!


I have a Lorac eyeshadow/eyeliner pencil that is black and sparkly.  That is what I used on my lid.  I applied it heavily and smudged it out with my finger.  I then applied a bronze shadow in my crease and blended it out as much as I could with an eyeshadow brush.  My brow high light was just a matte flesh tone with added matte white right below the curve of the arch of my brow.

And here is the point where I come to you for tips on how to create a great smoky eye.  What is it that you do?  I would love and appreciate any tips or tricks that you might like to share with me to help a girl out.

Wow, this just might be my shortest post ever!

Luv & Luk,
--L.

    1. Thank you very much. Smoky eyes make me so nervous. I think they are beautiful but for me, so hard to do! So your words are very encouraging to me :) I'll take a thumbs up any day!
