A smokey violet and blue FOTD | ft. MAC, FaceFront, and tokidoki

I had wanted to create a (darkly) colourful smokey eye for you today, and I was really happy with how it turned out… with one (huge) exception: I kind of forgot to put mascara on (or curl, for that matter) the lashes on my left side. And I didn’t notice until I had already finished taking this photo set and the sun began to go down.

-.-

But anyways! Here’s a bold blue-and-violet smokey eye to start the week. Just, um, try not to look too closely at the full-face shots, mmkay?

{see the teaser!}

(what a difference lighting and camera angles make!)

Products used

Eyes: FaceFront Artistic Pigment in Shallow Depth (blue; LE Tokyo Future), tokidoki Vegas palette (silver and dark purple shades), Marcelle Liquid Eyeliner in Black, Imju Fiberwig mascara in Black (original formula – “extra long”), Smashbox Single Eyeshadow in Smoke (matte grey; brows)

Lips: MAC Lipstick in Desire (berry; Lustre) blotted over a thin layer of GOSH Velvet Touch lipstick in Darling (pale pink-nude)

Cheeks: tokidoki Vegas palette (shimmery pink), Smashbox Single Eyeshadow in Smoke (matte grey; contour)

Skin: Marcelle Face Powder in Translucent, Hard Candy Glamoflauge concealer in Light

    This is gorgeous! I love your blending skills. I would never have thought of blending that medium blue with violet. I would also not have noticed the difference in your lashes (mascara vs mascara-less) had you not mentioned it :)

    Look great Rae!

    Gorgeous! I really love the blue+violet combo!

    And re: lashes. I wore mascara yesterday just for Tracy and it smudged everywhere and I was sad. I hate mascara. Life is better without it :P

    You hardly notice the lack of mascara because the shadows are so beautifully applied! I love your EOTDs. Some day I'll be brave and actually try them out. ;o
