Smokey Eyes and Red Lips

Heya Lovelies! <3

With my new fringe in tow I thought I should try some new make up looks. I've always loved smokey eyes with a fringe, I think it looks really soft and sweet so wanted to give it a try myself. What do you think? 

The Base
The products I used were Clean and Clear's Moisturiser which I love as it is Oil Free. Next I applied Rimmel's Fix and Perfect Primer and one layer of L'Oreal's Lumi Magique foundation.

Once I had an even base to work from I used Benefits Bluff Dust, with it's yellow tones to eliminate any reddness. I then swept a light layer of BedHead bronzer under my cheek bones and either side of my nose to contour my features.


The Eyes
For my eyes I used Ruby and Millie's eyeshadow duos in purple and and black and white shades. I applied the lighter purple shade around the lower and upper lids on both eyes and used a brush to smudge the shadow so it looked worn in and messy. I then added the darker purple to the outside corner of the upper lids all the way up to the lid crease. Again I used a brush to blur the edges of the shadow. I used the white shade in the corners of each eye to make them pop and the black shadow at the outside corners close to the lid line. As this look was for daytime I made sure the black was fairly subtle.

The Lips
I finished the look off by applying Mac's Sail La Via Red Lipstick
