For those of you who follow the lovely Barbara on youtube (thepersianbabe), you must remember her latest tutorial on a smokey bottom lashline (Check the video here if you haven't). That is the video that inspired me to do my makeup a bit different lately, instead of charging everything on the top lid for day time, trying to smoke the lashline to create that messy, unkept effect that looks effortless and cool. I did my own twist on it, because I do not own all the same products, but also because my eye shape is different. She also has lovely brows so I tried to thicken my non existent brows a bit! In the video, she specifically mentionned to not necessarily use the same products and copy everything, so this is what I did.
I used MAC rubenesque paint pot all over the lid, and smoked my lashline with MAC Cork, MAC handrwitten and Chanel ebony. The key is layering...And MAC fluidline on the lashline followed by coats and coats of mascara. For lips Crystal baby was perfect for this look, glossy and neutral!
I hope you enjoyed !
