#30 - Perfect the smoky eye look
Completed: November 25, 2006
I want to put a big shout out to Self-Portrait Challenge for this one. It wasn't really one the radar to work on it, but with the November theme being 'Glam' I felt that smoky eyes go hand in hand.
I'm a huge fan of dark make up, always have been and I always will be. I'm not a 'natural look' kinda girl. But, I was never able to capture the smoky eye thing, I think because my eye shape is a little different that example I've seen so I felt a little lost. When I was getting all 'Glam'ed up I totally made a breakthrough in 'seeing' what to do. When I angled my head slightly down, I found I could 'see' where to put the dark make up to achieve this effect (upper, outer lid and not anywhere near the middle). Success!!! Now, to find somewhere to go play....
