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. 

Products Used

  • Eye Primer-W7 Magic Prime (review here)
  • Lid & Crease- Mac Carbon
  • Transition- Mac Embark
  • Brow bone & Inner Tear Duct- Mac Amber Lights
  • Eyeliner- L'Oreal Superliner Carbon Gloss
  • Waterline- Model's own Kohl Pencil

Nothing works better with smokey eyes than a nude lip, so I went with my favourite nude lip products

Oh girl-this look is gorgeous! It's so perfect for holidays and New Year's eve parties! Is this what you are going to wear out for NYE or will you be applying a bit darker lip? Maybe a bit more sparkle on the eyebrow area?
Which ever you decide I'm sure you will look gorgeous! Keep up the great blogging and makeup tutorials!
