I was inspired to recreate
a look similar to that of fellow beauty blogger
La of MakeupByLa

Contour - e.l.f. Clarifying Pressed Powder SPICE
Highlight - e.l.f. Healthy Glow Bronzing Powder WARM TAN
Under Eye Concealer - Lorac Cover Up C7 and MAC Select Moisture Concealer NC45, MAC Studio Finish Concealer NC45 set with Coastal Scents Silica Powder mixed with MAC PRIMARY YELLOW and CHROME YELLOW Pigment
Setting Spray - Urban Decay the all Nighter

Prime - NARS Smudgeproof Eyeshadow Base
2ndary Base - Maybelline Color Tattoo 24 hr Eyeshadow RICH MAHOGANY and POMEGRANATE PUNK
Crease - Darkest Brown from Wet N Wild VANITY Palette (MAC EMBARK dupe)
Transition - Warm Brown from e.l.f. EVERYDAY BRIGHTS palette, L'Oreal matte SUEDE BROWN, MAC SADDLE and FOLIE

If you do not have all of the colors I used, you could probably get away with using the Wet N Wild Vanity Palette to complete this look.

Fill - Wet N Wild Mega Last Lipstick BARE IT ALL 902B
Gloss - NK TAUPE

I know it isn't for everyone, but I will rock this to the grocery store in a heartbeat. #divastatus
Do you wear smokey eyeshadow in the daytime?


  1. LOVE! When I got the link in FB I hadn't logged into blogger yet. When I logged into blogger, it was at the top of my reading list!!! You did that!!! Love it! I love how you used what you had in your stash and rocked this out lady! Oh, and I love how you said, "This isn't for everyone, but I would rock this to the grocery store in a heartbeat... #divastatus" How right you are my dear! Love the lip, I need some NK lipgloss in my life! I also need the lorac concealer too! Glad I could inspire you boo! :o)
