Steelo Cosmetics and Gray Contacts = Sultry Smokey Eyes

Hi Bellas!

I've been wearing makeup more often the last two weeks since I'm testing out products that I want to review. I want to give you a sneak peak into some products from Steelo Cosmetics.

Honestly, I wasn't familar with this brand before, but now that I've tested the products out I am absolutely blown away. Their eyeshadows are definitely on par with MAC, some of them even better. This has got to be number one or two of the top makeup brands I've reviewed so far.

This weekend my boyfriend had one of his college friends come into town. He was bringing his new girlfriend on their mini vacay and we got the chance to meet her. Of course I wanted to look as hot as possible, lol. We went out Saturday night and I opted for a sultry, smokey eye. I try not to wear super bright colors when I first meet someone because I don't want to freak them out with my dramatic, drag style makeup, lol. However, I love how this look came out! I used some products from MAC, some from Steelo. Take a looksey!

I also wore my new gray circle lenses that Anna had sent to, colored contacts make such a difference with eye!

Here's What I Used:

-Steelo eyeshadow base in light
-light cream nude color on inner lid (I used MAC blanc type)
-Steelo damage e/s on outer V (dupe for MAC beautymarked)
-light brown e/s above crease to blend (I used MAC soft brown)
-Steelo eyebrow pencil in Earth Brown
-Steelo eyeshadaow in Coffee to fill in brows

-Steelo foundation primer
-Eve Pearl salmon concealer in medium
-Graftobian foundation and powder
-MAC beauty powder in Summer Rose
-Steelo body shimmer in fairy (gorgeous!)
-Steelo Perfect Finish Setting Spray (still testing this out...similar to MAC fix plus)
-Steelo blush in cafe rose

-Steelo lipliner in Sand
-Steelo lipgloss in Pink Pearl

I did an eyeshadow vid tutorial with my bestie using these products and it turned out amazing! I'm also planning on doing a tutorial using the products on myself. FYI, their system from matching undertones and shades in mineral makeup is amazing....stay tuned!

I love the smokey eyes look, one of the more sexy looks. The contacts really do give a nice look to the makeup. You should put a review of Steelo Cosmetics on I know I have never heard of that line of cosmetics, and I'm sure other people haven't either. Great look!
