This is a very soft, neutral smokey eye with a medium-thick liner and double-tipped wing. It’s not too dramatic but’s it’s a little dressier than your standard “everyday eye makeup” kind of look. I used Maybelline Taupe Tease Plush Silk Eyeshadow quad and the Urban Decay Naked Basics palette to create this look. I really like these colors and could see myself reaching for this palette often.
Here’s a smokey purple eyeshadow look created with Maybelline’s Take It Off Plush Silk Eyeshadow. The second shade in the from the left of this quad looks very eye-catching in the pan but didn’t seem as vibrant on the eye so I added some more color with a Revlon Photoready Kajal on my lower waterline.
This is a really quick and easy look that doesn’t require a lot of brushes to create. I used the lightest of the four quads Maybelline released for spring 2014, an ultra fine eyeliner, and a natural looking lash. The eyeshadows blended really easily which also helped cut down the time it took to create it. The only thing is that these shadows don’t last all day on me without a primer but they still look just as nice without one.
Here’s another look for you guys. I’m kind of annoyed with myself because it didn’t turn out at all the way I intended LOL. I had envisioned something minty/light green with gold but obviously it turned out blue. I’m not totally happy with the gold I chose either so I’ll just try again another time. Hope you enjoy it anyway though 🙂
