Colorful Smokey Eye

Colorful Smokey Eye Palette 1 (1)

As promised, I have created a look using my Smashbox on the Rocks Palette. Ela from Ela Bella World commented on my Palette Madness post and requested a colorful smokey eye so I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to crack this out!

I started subtle and ended abot 4,000 miles away from subtle. Ahh well, what can you do right? I started building up my crease with a matte brown shade and then packed on my colorful shadows. Nothing is more satisfying than packing on really shimmery, colorful shadows. Am I right?

I packed Shade 1 (a shimmering navy) in the outer corners blended with Shade 2 (a shimmering teal) on the ball of the lid. I made sure to blend those together so that I didn’t have any harsh lines.

Colorful Smokey Eye Palette 4 (1)

On the lower lash line I used shade 3 (a beautifully vibrant purple) and shade 4 (a cool shimmering lilac) to highlight near the tear duct.

I added a bold lip and some lashes and called it a night! What do you think? I have another colorful look coming soon! Hope you like it!

    Thank you so much for this makeup look! Your makeup looks gorgeous, also lipstick choice is fab! I will definitely try to experiment more with colourful eyeshadows instead of going for neutrals most of the time.

      Thanks Ela! I’m so happy you like it! I love this lipstick it’s such an original shade! Definitely try some more color! Let me know how it goes!

    That’s such a beautiful look. I love these colors! They remind me of nebulas!

    • Ellen January 6, 2016 / 05:24

      Oh they totally look like a nebulas! That’s actually a really awesome idea for a look! Using a black base and then some duo chrome on top would look really awesome! Thanks E 🙂

    This looks like a jewel! So freaking pretty! I’ve never tried any of the shadows from Smashbox, but now I really want to!
