Eyeshadow: Smokey eye with Naked 3

Let me begin with another apology. Since my return from Japan, I haven't felt like blogging, or really doing much with makeup at all. I've been job hunting, which has taken up huge amounts of my time and has also left me feeling a little down and therefore uninterested in makeup. However, there have actually been a couple of positions available in my field this week, so I've got some applications in. Fingers crossed!

One event that made me get my makeup out was my high school reunion. I can't believe how little everyone had changed. It was kind of freaky, really. It was a fun night out regardless and it made me forget my troubles. I did this look using the Urban Decay Naked 3 palette, plus my everyday matte black eyeshadow from Stila.

Smokey neutral.

It was a few weeks ago, so I don't remember exactly which eyeshadows I used where, but I'll try. I think I applied Mugshot all over the lid and along the lower lashline and then Darkside on the outer third of the lid and lower lashline. In the crease I used a mixture of Limit, Nooner and Factory, with a little Blackheart to deepen the outer V. I finished with Strange on the browbone. I ran Stile Ebony along the waterline and along the top lashline for a softer finish.

Sorry this post has been so rambling. I hope to catch up on some more over the coming weeks. I know, I still have my Japan haul to post, and it's coming. Thanks for hanging in there with me, gang!
