Get the look: Brown Smokey Eyes!

Face: I first prepped and primed the skin with Dermalogica Active Moist Moisturizer and added a few drops of the Skin Hydrating Booster. I then applied a thin layer of Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation in shade 4.0 with a large foundation brush and then blended with a moist sponge and set with Make Up For Ever HD Powder. I highlighted the face with the Kevyn Aucoin Candlelight powder and applied a light dusting of NARS Orgasm Blush to the apples of the cheeks.

Eyes: I applied MAC Cosmetics Eye Shadow in Tempting with a stiff eye shadow brush all over lid up into the crease. I brought the same eye shadow to the lower lid and smoked it out. Next I used a soft brown eye pencil from Kevyn Aucoin and lined all around the eye close to the lash line and smudged with a small smudge brush. I then attached MAC lashes in #33 with Duo Adhesive close to the lash line and let dry before I brushed the lashes with one coat of L’Oreal Voluminous Mascara in Dark Brown. The brows were groomed using Anastasia Tinted Brow Gel in Blonde.

Lips: The lips were lined with a light nude pencil and a thin layer of NARS Lip Lacquer in Chelsea Girls was applied.

    The cheek highlight is so pretty! You really know how to apply makeup for the camera:-) I was on the fence about buying the Nars Lip Lacquer in Chelsea, but now I totally want it!
