Smokey Eye with a Hint of OrangeĀ 

Hi beauties I haven’t posted in a few weeks, but as I said before follow me on my social media pages to keep up with me .

Tonight my model,my youngest daughter let me create this look inspired by prom season. I decided to add a pop of color to the traditional smokey eye. Here’s a list of product breakdowns:

I prepped her skin with my witch hazel and thyme leaves mixture, then primed the skin with Mary Kay skin primer

Brows: Ruby Kisses Cosmetics brow pencil (dark brown) and then to clean them up I also used the Ruby Kisses highlight and contour kit for medium to deep skin skin. I set them with the Ulta brow kit

Eyes: I primed with the Too Faced Shadow Insurance and I used a medium brown shadow from the Ruby Kisses Cosmetics Contour kit and the oranges came from the Urban Decay Electric palette and from my eBay neon shadows palette and my Mayo Cosmetics neon pigment. The black came from an eBay neutral palette. I used NYX Cosmetics Black Bean as a base

Contour: Ruby Kisses Cosmetics cream contour kit and was set the Ruby Kisses powder contour kit

Foundation: Maybelline Fit me foundation in “Coconut” I used a brown from the ruby kisses palette to set the foundation

Highlight: the gold cream from the ruby kisses palette and Mac Cosmetics “Soft and Gentle”

Lashes: La colors lashes in the style “Danity”

Mascara: Wet n Wild mascara 

Blush: Black Radiance Cosmetics “Raspberry ”

Lips: Wet n Wild brown liner and an La Color lipgloss 

I set with the Elf Cosmetics setting spray 

Best Budget Buy: E.L.F. Blush Quad

Browsing through my Local Walmart, I came across our very small elf area. It seemed to be my lucky day because they had FINALLY restocked the area.
I saw this quad and immediately had to get it. If you are not familiar with Eyes Lips Face Cosmetics better known as E.L.F. or how I and I’m sure plenty more say it “elf” then you need to get up on it honey!!! #1 Elf is affordable very its the PERFECT line to start your makeup journey or kit #2 They are worth the price the eyeshadows are pigmented the blushes as well #3 they are a good line I keep elf in my kit work and personal.
Now this quad is called “Dark” it is meant to compliment “Brown Beauties”, “Olive Honeys” and ” Bronze Goddesses” but I don’t pay attention to all that, I saw I can get four, pigmented blushes that are Mac dupes and I can finally look like I’m wearing blush because certain blushes don’t wear well on me . The Blushes are pigmented, great for your kit and will compliment any skin tones especially the above complexions. There are also a light quad I’m getting. They both comes with two shimmer blushes and two mattes. The price is $6 definitely worth it.

Eyeliner: Elf brown liquid liner then I applied from the profusion palette a black eye-shadow to the lash line to make the lashes appear fuller and to the water line
