Elegant Smoky

I did a lovely look with Suds n’ Sass’s A Day at the Beach Collection, which turned out to be an elegant sort of smoky eye.

It was hard for me to get the purple to show up, even after patting it on, but it is visible in the natural pic. I probably should have used Pixie Epoxy for the purple section.

Eyes:
Too Faced Shadow Insurance
Suds n’ Sass Piercing Parlor – inner lid, inner crease, inner lower lash line
Suds n’ Sass Tattoo Shop – outer lid, outer crease, outer lower lash line, along upper lash line
Suds n’ Sass Pink Horizons – on browbone to highlight
MAC Crystal Avalanche – inner corners of eye and right under eyebrows
Urban Decay Brunette Bombshell Brow Pencil
Urban Decay 24/7 liner in Yeyo – lower water line
Urban Decay 24/7 liner in Zero – outer lower water line
L’Oreal Lash Primer
Cover Girl Lash Blast Fusion Mascara

Cheeks:
Suds n’ Sass Cotton Candy

Face:
Meow Pampered Puss Foundation in Inquisitive Sphynx

Lips:
Nyx lipliner in Natural
Evil Shades Lipstick in Reign

Rein looks awesome with this look. I definitely feel elegant and lovely.

I also received my order of BB Couture, from Overall Beauty. The lovely owner Kim really does ship fast. I picked up Dragon’s Breath & Candy Mousse.


Dragon’s Breath is a warm red purple with loads of sparkle.
Candy Mousse is a red-coral with fuchsia reflect.

Expect to see these on my nails very soon!

      Very pretty – smokey yet summery! The lippie is gorgeous too!

      • Phyrra

        Thanks! I think Reign is PERFECT with a smoky look.

      I like Phaedra hanging out in the background. This is a great smokey eye. Clean, blended and a stunning nude lip. I’ll have to check out Evil Shades now. Bravo on this, so pretty!

      Are you applying your shadows differently at the outer edges? Your whole eye shape looks different to me. Kind of like a cat eye or something. It’s very striking and pretty. And I think I’m going to have to order that lipstick!

      • Phyrra

        I blended the edges really well and then cleaned it up with a q-tip, but I did want it to emulate a bit of a cat eye since I wasn’t doing heavy liner.

      Breathtaking! I’m very impressed by this look!

      I also love Reign on you. It really flatters your complexion, and looks stately.

      I just made an Evil Shades purchase today! I’m especially excited to try the lipsticks and glosses. :)

      • Phyrra

        Yay thanks! What all did you pick up?

      I really like this look for you. Smokey eyes fit you well.

      • Phyrra

        Aww thank you! I really like it!

    • Invicta

      A very elegant & lovely smoky eye! Reign is a fantastic nude, especially with your pink overtones because it has enough pink in it to keep it from looking too warm. I made an Evil Shades purchase this week…but didn’t buy Reign X/

      • Phyrra

        I am really glad I picked up Reign! Thank you!

      That’s a great look, love the eyes! It’s looking silvery gray/black on my monitor, I’m working my nerve up to try such a look. How pretty.

      • Phyrra

        It looked silvery grey / black in person, only a touch of the purple showed up.

    • lillypug

      I agree, very pretty and elegant. I like the slight cat eye shape too :)

      • Phyrra

        Thank you! I thought that would work well with the softer liner.
