Smoke Signals

Every beauty site telling us how smokey and shimmery eyes are in now. When aren’t they in? Well, instead of buying an expensive palette, here’s 2 eyeshadows that give you that look quickly and easily.

Urban Decay Eye Shadow in Maui Wowie – This is a georgous shade even on its’ own. It has silver, gold and brown hues depending on what it’s paired with and also has little specs of glitter in it. I like it because it’s a bold, substancial color for your lid.

MAC Eye Shadow in Satin Taupe – This is the very first eyeshadow that I ever bought when I was 13 or 14. It’s sort of the old standby – taupe brown with a silvery bronze shimmer. I haven’t used it in a while, but just recently brought it out of retirement to use with Maui Wowie and they are a great pair. Wear this in the crease.Don’t be afraid to use a lot of it and then just blend blend and blend some more!

Pair this with a sheer shimmery lip – nothing too bold so they aren’t competing. What best about this look is that it’s good for day or night and can be adjusted according for work, or play. For night, you might accent the Satin Taupe with a darker brown in the very corner of your eye – like MAC Eye SHadow in Twinks. Don’t forget to apply a primer first so the shadow sticks, I like Laura Geller’s eye Spackle.
