EOTN: Smokey Eye with a Vampy Lip

I was having one of those days where I just felt ugly, I think everyone has those every so often!  I decided to do some nice make up to make myself feel better, and here's how it turned out.  I didn't even go anywhere after it (okay that's a lie, my dad made me go to Morrisons with him, how embarrassing haha!) I just went back to studying!

I used some of the products I got from Liz in our swap; the eyeshadow quad and the Hard Candy blusher.  I'm really not very good at doing smokey eyes at all for some reason, I can't make it very dark or it just gets messy, I think it's maybe just that I don't suit very dark eyes in the first place.
  • Primed the lids with Urban Decay Primer Potion.
  • Used the silvery colour all over the lid.
  • Then the brown in the outer third.
  • Next I applied the darkest 'black' (it's not a very true black!) in the crease and blended it out.
  • Then using the shimmery white I highlighted under the brow and in the inner corner.
  • For underneath the eyes I brought the white out from the inner corner, then brown then the black in the outer corner meeting with the same colour on the top lid.
  • I then lined my eyes with a black gel liner and tight-lined with a black eyeliner pencil.
  • Finally I applied Benefit They're Real mascara to top and bottom lashes.
On my lips I am wearing Avon Ultra Colour Rich 24k Gold in Golden Wine (not CF), and on my skin I have Illamasqua Skinbase foundation in shade 2 and Illamasqua under-eye concealer in UC115.

I used the blusher from this set
