Playing Around with Color

Saturday I met up with my friend Monica, a working mother of two, to play around a bit with a look I saw on Pinterest.
Smokey eyes w/ a twist
Pinterest Inspiration
I wanted to give her something similar that was fun but not so bold that if she went to run errands later it wouldn't be too overpowering.
This is what we came up with

my version

Here's how it worked:
1) Prepped eyes with a primer (Urban Decay Primer Potion)
2)  Eyelid: Used a cream base (M.A.C Flighty)
3) Layer on the color
- M.A.C plum
- Urban Decay Metropolitan
- M.A.C Trax
4) Crease- Too Faced Socialite / M.A.C- Trax, blend to mix with eyelid 
5) Pumped up the eyelid colors with Red Ginger's mulit shadow palette by mixing a deep blue and bright purple shimmer together
6) Inner corner: M.A.C Tilt topped off with more of the turquoise blue from Red Ginger (used the same colors on the bottom of the eye)
7) Line upper lid with M.AC Pencil in Kohl / go over that with M.A.C Carbon shadow
8) Lined lower lash line with M.A.C eye pencil in Coffee
9) smudged M.A.C Trax,Urban Decay's Metropolitan & M.A.C Plum eye shadow under eye
10) Topped off with two coats of Maybelline's Falsies mascara

Eye brows were filled in with M.A.C Stud eye brow crayon
M.A.C Gingerly topped with NARS Orgasm
 M.A.C Spice Lip Liner
Too Faced Celebrity Meltdown Lipstick
M.A.C Oh Baby Lipglass
