Party Look 1: Smokey Eyes & Nude Lips


If you are having trouble deciding which makeup looks to wear this party season, I'll be sharing a few easy-to create looks here.

The first look is the classic smokey eyes/nude lips a la Kim Kardashian. It's a makeup look you can get done in about 30mins because it features two basic eye colours, black and brown. It's optional to add a gold-ish eyeshadow to highlight some areas of the eye.


I applied a primer all over the lid to prevent my eyeshadows from creasing. I patted a black eyeshadow all over the lid and blended it into the crease. I then applied a brown eyeshadow as a transition and a gold eyeshadow as a brow highlight. I used the same gold eyeshadow to highlight my inner-tear duct area.
