Jewel Smoky Eye Makeup

This was inspired by a fairly recent video of Lisa Eldridge just using a dark base & jewel-toned colours over the top. It really doesn't matter which colours you use or the placement as long as they stand out & are jewel-toned, however the black base will take away some of the brightness. Sadly this was an "all dressed up, nowhere to go" look but I had fun doing it and will def. do it again for a night out. You can also go with a nude lip with this but I wanted bright lips, too. Keep reading to see how I used my colours!

    1. Thanks! I was deciding between a nude lip but did the red even though I didn't think it would look ok.

  5. wow great. I love the purple touch :D

  6. This is SUCH A BEAUTIFUL LOOK! I don't know if I'd have the courage to pull off the eyes + lips together, you did it effortlessly though! You have such a gorgeous face by the way =) I might try a look like this for a night out! If I do I will post it on my blog :D
