B 'n D Makeover | Blue smoke

Aha! I managed to think up a name for this look *Covers face*

I christened it 'Blue smoke',,,,don't laugh please. The look was inspired by my blue top, and the name was inspired by the smokey eyes. I've never done a smokey look on my face because i always thought that it wouldn't suit me.....well, i'll let you be the judge of that.

I paired the smokey eyes with nude lips because i didn't want the eyes and the lips to be loud....besides, i've always thought that smokey looks are better paired with nude or neutral lips. #MyHumbleOpinion

As usual, here are the pictures for your viewing pleasure....















 Find below the list of products i used to get this look.....

PRODUCTS USED

FACE
MaryKay foundations in bronze 1 & 2
MaryKay concealers in bronze 1 & 2
Black radiance blush in 'Soft honey'
Sleek pressed powder

EYES
Blue and black eyeshadows from Sleek's 'bad girl' palette
Jordana InColor fabuliner
Zaron's 'Black velvet' eyeliner
A brown eyeshadow by sleek in the crease to serve as the transition color
A light matte eyeshadow by Estee Lauder for highlighting my browbone

LIPS
Zaron's 'Cappuccino' lipliner
Revlon's 'Blush' lipstick


Ok, so do you think smokey looks suits me? Hmnnnnnnn...... Anyway, I plan to do more smokey looks on my face.....it doesn't have to be totally black...i can use colours like purple, red, green, and brown as a base color before layering the black on top of it. You can try that if you want to.

Alrighty then!

Besos!

  5. Ur facial features are very pronounced, I.e your eyes and lips. Smokey eyes is good for ppl wif bulging eyes becos it moderates it. But if I were you I will avoid sharp red lipsticks/lip gloss becos it makes ur full lips look too big just like in the other post. I like the shade of lipgloss you have on here. Very subtle and suits your face. And finally ur eyebrows need more help. Its not proportional (the base is too thick compared to the tip)and I can see the pencil line u used in outlining it. My tip to a perfect brow is to brush with a browbrush after lining to avoid seeing pencil-strokes and if u must outline pls use an angled brush with concealer instead of a pencil. Thank you. Nice blog.

    1. Ok....i didn't want to shave off any more of my brows at the base, and that is why the base looks thicker than the tail.

      I do use a spoolie to blend out my pencil strokes when i'm done outlining and filling, but for some reason this one wasn't properly blended out. The one in the next B 'n D makeover post won't look properly blended out either 'cos i did the 2 looks same day, so please ignore it when you see it *smiles*

      I actually use a flat angled brush and a concealer one shade lighter than my skin tone to highlight my brows...not a pencil.

      I also know the illusion red lippies give my lips, but i love 'em too much to stop using them, so i indulge once in a while...also depends on the look i want to create.

      Thanks a lot dear....constructive criticism is welcome anytime *hugs*

    1. Thanks dear.

      Funny enoff, i don't really wear makeup ooo! I'm a white powder and lipbalm or lip gloss person. All these makeover pictures you see on this blog, i do them, take pictures and wash them off *covers face*.

      I can only say i actually wear makeup to church on sundays alone....but then again, not all sundays.

      On the days i decide to wear makeup, i finish up in 30 mins or so.
