Simple Smokey liner with Glitter

This is the type of simple look I wear when I still want to look presentable, but either don't have the time or don't feel the need to go somewhere all glammed up. This was for a Dr. appt so I definitely didn't feel the need to wear a dramatic look. I basically used a black powder to line my eyes, winged it outward, then blended it to soften the harsh edges. Then I added a glitter liner on top for a little extra pop. :-)


I made zee necklace.
Eyes (all applied in this order):
Coastal Scents Shadow worx eye primer (applied to upper lid, blending in gently with ring finger) 
NYX - Pure Skin (applied all over lid, up to brow)
Ardell Brow Defining Powder - Soft Black (applied to lash line with an angled taklon liner brush, then blended out with a blender brush)
Collection 2000 Glam Crystals Dazzling Gel Liner - Pow! (swiped onto lash line and winged outward)
e.l.f. Studio 3-in-1 Mascara - Black (1 coat)

Eyebrows: e.l.f. Baked Eyeshadow - Burnt Plum (applied with a synthetic angled liner brush)

Lips: Avon BEYOND COLOR Plumping Lip Color SPF 15 - Beige Shimmer

Skin MD Shielding lotion
Physician Formula Mineral Wear Talc-Free Mineral Airbrushing Pressed Powder SPF 30 - Translucent (applied all over face/neck with a large powder brush) 
e.l.f. Studio Baked Blush - Peachy Cheeky (applied to cheek bones and blending back toward the hair line)


  1. The glitter is really pretty, and this look makes you look so fresh and nice! <3

  2. Crazy with all the makeup I own, I seriously just bought my first NYX single eyeshadow. I don't know why I waited so long. Nude Skin was one of the singles I picked up. It looks like a great flesh tone color. This is a pretty look. I can honestly say for the months and months I've read your blog, you've never had a flop.

  3. sometimes simple is the best - thats so pretty!! stylish too! Happy Bday!!
