I have mentioned in a few previous posts that I am not a makeup pro; I am very far from it. In general, I am too lazy (unfortunately) to use makeup on a regular basis. When I do “force” myself to try harder, my routine usually consists of a lip gloss or lipstick and an eye pencil on the bottom eyelid (not even both; I know, really sad).
That is what makes this accomplishment all the more impressive! I want to share with you the good news: I have gotten the hang of a smokey eye! I had a photoshoot earlier that day and so I decided to at least attempt some kind of photoshoot appropriate makeup. I got out most of what I have out (which is a lot of makeup for a person who almost doesn’t use any).
I got a great Nudes eye shadow pallet from my internship recently and so my eye fell on a dark brown, slightly glittery shade. I put on the bottom eyeliner, the top eyeliner, the shadow and mascara.
Then came the next challenge: doing my eyebrows. Although my brows are not too bad, they have some permanent gaps that annoy me a lot. Two days ago, I bought an eye pencil at Walmart and this was the perfect opportunity to try it out.
Voila! Here is the result of my efforts and I must say I am super proud of it (and my eyebrows). I even used blush!
