☾ face of the day: naked 3 smokey look

Having pastel pink hair makes me so inspired to create different looks and try new makeup techniques and styles, and yesterday I decided I was just in love with the whole concept of pink and created this look to go out for dinner with my family and my boyfriend. Using my trusty Naked 3 Palette, which is a rose toned palette with some incredibly gorgeous shades ranging from pale creamy white-pink to deep shimmering plum black, I created this semi-dramatic look and finished it off with a nude lip and quite defined contouring and highlighting.

The products I used (in order) are:
MAC Prep and Prime Skin
MAC Pro Longwear Concealer in NW15
MAC StudioFix Fluid in NW15
MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Powder in Light
MAC StudioFix Powder Plus Foundation in NW15
MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Powder in Medium Dark
NARS Deep Throat
Illamasqua Sculpting Powder Duo
Benefit Gimme Brow in Light/Medium
Naked 3 Palette
NYC High Defintion Liquid Eyeliner Pen
Jordana Best Lash Extreme Volumising Mascara
MAC Lipstick in Myth
Lime Crime Coquette

With my gorgeous Naked 3, I used Strange to create a white base all over my eyelid, then took Nooner on my Real Techniques Duo-fibre eye brush and darkened up the crease. Then using the shades Factory and Mugshot (mixed) I deepened up that area further, creating a smooth, blended gradient between the colours. Finally, using my thick, fluffy Sigma tapered blending brush, I used Blackheart to give a final burst of dark smokiness. The end result is pretty smouldering and sexy, and I love the way it pops out and it matches the nude lip perfectly.
