Face Of The Day | Dark Shimmery Smokey Eye




It has been awhile since I did a really smokey eye and especially using gray and black. I usually stick to bronze when I do a smokey-eye. I was recently cleaning out my makeup bag and came across a shadow from Mia Mariu. I hadn’t used this shadow in ages and decided to use it and ended up creating this smokey-eye look that is very classic. It has a hint of shimmer which makes it really fun especially for a night out on the town!

I also wanted to use my new black liquid liner from Zuzu Luxe that I recently picked up at Whole Foods. I have been on the lookout for a good natural and non-toxic liquid eyeliner that would be easy to create a precise line. So far I am absolutely loving this liner – it stays put all day for me and is super pigmented.

I used my bronzer to blend out the gray/black shadow and to add more depth in my crease. I also used a black eyeliner pencil to line my lower lash line and blended the bronzer into the liner to make it look more seamless. The look is not as harsh as it would be if you just used black.

For my lips I wanted some color. I’m not a huge fan of the nude lip look especially on my fair skin tone. I used one of my favorite shades of lipsticks by Honeybee Gardens that really helped to brighten up this look more without leaving me looking too pale. If I was going to wear this look out I would definitely play up my lashes more and maybe bring out some falsies and wing out the liner to create a more intense cat-eye effect ๐Ÿ™‚

All products used in this look with be listed below and of course all products are natural, organic or non-toxic.

    1. I love it too! It is definitely my new favorite natural liquid liner. I find it lasts all day and doesn’t smudge!! I am eager to try their other colors.

  1. Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous! I’m not a fan of smoky eye looks on myself, but you look absolutely stunning and make me want to whip out some of my own gunmetal colors! I love how you blended the bronzer into the crease too, very lovely! :]

      1. You may have just given me a reason to! ๐Ÿ˜€ I have a new gorgeous dark blue color that I might give a go–maybe a dark navy smokey eye. You’ve definitely inspired me to try something new! ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Wow, that looks INCREDIBLE! Love it! I love a good smokey eye. I tend to use burgundy, browns and blacks. One product I love is the ‘Burnout’ eyeshadow from silk naturals.
