Petal Pushing look #4


Well-known member
I wanted to do a smoky eye in this series, so here it is. Some may consider look #1 to fit the bill, because we all have different ideas of what a smoky eye is, but this look right here is what it is to me. For this look, I took the dark shimmery burgundy color and placed it at my upper lash line, and took it up a bit, almost do my crease. Then in my crease I used the shimmery mauve (similar to Trax by MAC). I blended it out with that more matte light purple. On my lower lash line, I used the shimmery periwinkle kind of color. I skipped falsies on this one.

For me, a smoky eye starts at the lash line with a very dark color. The darkest color you'll use in the look. Then it's blended up in a kind of gradient effect, going to a lighter shade.

Thank you! I've been wearing false lashes less often lately, and am seeing that I don't need them quite as much as I thought I did. I still prefer the look of them, but I'm not worried about going without.
