Today, I’m going to attempt this look worn by Jennifer Lawrence, which is Sarie’s special request, via Whatsapp. It’s a warm, golden brown smokey eye with neutral everything else. In short, gorgeous!
This is what I came up with, and as you can see, it is vastly different, but this was the best I have done after several attempts for the past couple of months.
Anyway, I now know why I don’t really wear a smokey eye that much. This emphasizes my very mismatched eyes and my low-hanging eye bags. I also can’t do a thick black rim on my upper lash line because my right eye eats up any line I draw on it. If I want a thick line to show up, I might as well color in my entire eye.
For my face, I just wore a soft rosy blush by Shiseido, warmed up the edges of my face + did a light contour with Tarte’s Park Avenue Princess (matte). For the lips, I have on NARS’ Pure Matte Lipstick in Montego Bay.
For the eyes, I started with the Maybelline Color Tattoo in Bad to the Bronze, blended out past the crease. Then, I added a thin rim around the eye with the Eye of Horus Mascara*, smudged it out, then applied MAC Smut over it.
I concentrated the combination of MAC Smut and MAC Handwritten on the outer corner, tapering it down to the upper lash line. Over top of that, I added the combination of MAC Handwritten and MAC Mystery and blended it out. I added Half Baked from the Urban Decay Naked Palette on the center of the lid.
I smudged MAC Smut on the lower lash line, then added MAC Handwritten over top of that. I curled my lashes and applied Maybelline The Hypercurl Mascara on my upper lashes.
And that’s it! I hope you enjoyed this post. 🙂 Here is a picture of the products I used:
