Pretty damn smokey

Ikväll testade jag den korpsvarta ögonskuggan Dams från Emite Make Up som visade sig vara helt sjukt pigmenterad och lättarbetad, och gick därför all in med pandasotningen. Sotigt som fasen blev det alltså. Till en början planerade jag att fega och satsa på blekrosa läppar och kanske en dutt bronzer på kinderna, klassikern ni vet, men det slutade istället upp med en rejäl dos bronzer och lite mörkare, orangetonat nude på läpparna. Kändes som en bra satsning, det balanserade upp den mörka kalla ögonmakeupen en aning så den inte känns fullt lika läskig.

 

Tonight I tested a raven black eyeshadow from Emite Make Up called Dams, it turned out to be crazy pigmented and easy to work with, so I went all in with the smokey panda eye. It turned out smokey as heck in other words. From the beginning I thought of taking the safe way out and wear it with pale pink lips and maybe some bronzer on the cheeks, the classic you know, but I ended up with a good dose of bronzer and a slightly darker, orange toned nude on my lips. It felt like a good thing to do, it helped balancing the dark cool toned eye makeup a bit so that it doesn’t feel as creepy.

    Holy pigmentation, Batman!
    It even looks that you’ve got a black pencil/cream shadow underneath. Amazing!
    You should do a video tutorial on smokey eyes :) Would love to see the Viola way of doing them.
