Smokey Red and Orange Makeup look with Coastal Scents 36 Smokey Palette

This could be a fall look. I did it yesterday. When I first looked at the pictures, I thought I hated this look. Now this morning I don't know why I thought I hated it. Maybe because I'm not wearing winged liner? I dunno. I do feel nekkid without it but as always, we must switch things up from time to time. Plus I'm on the hunt for a new liner brush. I have a ton, but my fav one is wearing out and haven't been able to find anything like it.  :-(

I never made a chart for this for some reason...will have to do that soon!

Eyes (all applied in this order):
Chafing Relief Powder-Gel (applied to upper lid, blending in gently with ring finger) 
NYX jumbo pencil in Cottage Cheese (applied all around the eyes, blending in gently with ring finger)
36 SP - fleshy tone just above the orange on the left (applied to inner V with MAC 228 by patting/sweeping) 
36 SP - Orange on the far left (applied to entire upper crease in a wind shield wiper motion, with MAC 217 by patting then sweeping)
36 SP - Blackened sparkly red to the right of the orange (applied to upper lid with MAC 239 by patting and sweeping upward) 
36 SP - orange (applied to inner lower lash line with MAC 228 by patting/sweeping)  
36 SP - blackened sparkly red (applied to outer lower lash line with MAC 228 by patting/sweeping)
Avon Ultra Luxury eye liner in black (applied to upper lash line and water line)
Ardell lashes #113

Eyebrows: Ardell Eyebrow powder in soft black (applied with MAC 266)

  1. Beautiful!!!!!!!! I was lemming this palette for some time now, you're not helping lol xox

  2. oh I like it! the purple hair and the purply lids give you a glow like you are watching a sunset when a forest fire is underway, it's kinda supernatural..

  3. This so gorgeous ! Love the sparkly blackened red .

  4. uhmm I FREAKING LOVE THE PURPLE ROOTS! how did you do it?

  5. You pull off these dark makeup looks so well!

  6. I love how you explain in detail just what you do, thats So Great!!! I deff will be coming back often.


  7. That blackened sparkly red is chic. I feel very dramatic when I use it. All the shades you chose blend together so well. And your necklace is pretty too.

  8. Loving this look! Love how the lid color fades into that orange. Beautiful as always!
    I only recently started skipping the wing in my liner... and it definitely feels weird after doing it the same everyday for years, lol!
    But it allows me to play with my eyeshape more, so it's a welcome change. :D

  9. Love this look! Your eyes look huge--in a good way. I also like the steamy necklace.
