Smoky Eye Friday – Purple and Teal with Urban Decay



Smoky Eye Friday

So, I mentioned on Facebook and Twitter that I was thinking of doing a teal smoky with an orange lip. Obviously that didn’t happen, but it will. I am hoping next Friday I will get more time to play with my makeup and get a complete look done, since the kids will be in school (yassss!). I still think it will be a fun look to do and will do it.

What did I do this week?

Well, I decided to pull out an Urban Decay palette I hadn’t used in months. I used my Book of Shadows Vol. IV. I used my Milani Shadow Eyez in Almond Cream as a base, and then applied Urban Decay Blue Bus to the lid, a bit of Skimp to the brow bone, a little Lost to blend the crease, and I used MAC Carbon to smoke it out. Under the black I have my Milani Shadow Eyez in Black Ink. I popped a little Urban Decay Hijack on the lower lash line for a pop of color. Mascara is Wet n Wild Megalash.

Are you going to sport any smoky eye looks this weekend?

If you are interested in joining, then you can submit your link to the gallery below. The rules for participation are simple:

  • Your smoky eye look (just an eye or full face) must be a current post for that Friday. No old posts.
  • No paid/sponsored posts.
  • If you submit a link you must include the gallery widget within your smoky eye post. It’s only fair! After you submit, you can click here –>> to get the InLinkz code to insert into your post.

That’s it! This will be ongoing, so you can participate as little or as much as you would like. My smoky eye posts will be on the blog Thursday at midnight PST, and submissions will be open for a full 24 hours (so through Friday at midnight).
