88 Warm Palette and My Go To Smokey Eye

Hi Bellas,

Back with another FOTD!  This is a look I wore to brunch weekend before last.  I met up with my Beauty Clique Joy and Leslie.  We like to do brunch every few weeks to chat and discuss makeup, boys, and life :)

I didn't give myself that much time to get ready so I threw on a look I always do when I'm in a pinch.  You might have seen the look a few times before.  It's pretty much a silver smokey eye with brown above the crease.  It's really easy to do and wearable for day and night.  This time, I decided to break out my 88 Warm Palette from Ebay.  The palette contains a lot of neutrals such as browns, metallics, tans...as well as a lot of silver/black/gray options for a smokey eye.  I use a bluish gray silver this time and liked the outcome.  The colors are really great in this palette...so wearable and vibrant.  Like most of these palettes...it is crucial to wear an eye base and not to overblend the colors...otherwise you'll be left with no color on the lid.

The final look!

Wearing my new jacket...hot pink and black is always a favorite color combo of mine.

Here's What I Used:

-Steelo Cosmetics eyeshadow base in medium
-88 Warm Palette
-Rimmel brow pencil in hazel and Cork e/s to fill in brows
-Jordana black liquid liner
-Bliss Lashes
-Anastasia Lash Lifting Mascara
-Urban Decay 24/7 pencil in zero

-hmmm can't remember, sorry!

-MAC spice lip pencil
-MAC Florabundance lipglass
-MAC Freckletone lipstick

Stay tuned for tomorrow's post...Elle Bang Brush Review & Giveaway!

Ren, thank you so much for everything you have created for us; you are awesome!
I would love your consideration for the 88 Matte Palette Giveaway because I could certainly use it in Make up school. Additional, it would provide wonderful advertisement for both Sedona Lace and Make up By Ren Ren. Not that I do not talk about you and your tutorials all the time in class.

Thank you again for all you do for us!
