Holiday parties, New Year’s Eve parties, or just a night out….check out this twist on a smokey eye created by Boston’s Best, Dani Wagener.  It’s easy to recreate, and gets across the effect of the smoky eye and dark lash line, without being too dark and black.

Begin with the eyes. When using darker shadows, it’s best to begin your look focusing on the eye, clean up and move onto the skin…

Get the look using these products:

Eyes

Begin with a cream shadow base like shu uemura’s Cream Shadow in P Brown. Apply it all over the lid, lightly blending up to the brow.

With a natural hair brush, smooth first shadow all over the lid, up to brow. Try shu uemura m beige 821 using the natural brush 10.

Next, use the same brush but slightly dampen it a bit to increase the color payoff and create a silky shadow effect.  Dani used shu uemura PES P brown 820 and packed it into lid up to crease.

For the final shadow step, use shu uemura m blue 695 shadow and apply it thick at the lash line with a wet  kolinsky brush 10f.

Complete the look with shu uemura Painting Gel Black Liner in ME black applied on the lashline with natural brush 6ob and again in waterline with M Black.

shu Uemura Precise Volume Mascara in black.

shu uemura Flare Lashes for some added drama.

Face

Over lightly moisturized skin, apply shu uemura UV Under Base applied all over the face with a sponge.

Using the same damp sponge, blend shu uemura Nobara Cream Cover Stick in 584 for a creamy, flawless complexion.

Still using the same sponge, highlight skin with Armani Beauty Fluid Sheer in 0 Porcelain on the cheekbones and brow for a subtle glow.

To finish the face, add MAC Blushcreme in Posey on the apples of cheeks.

Add sparkle to lips with shu uemura rouge unlimited supreme shine in 957.
