Lady Gaga Grammy's Look/Sigma Makeup Friday Giveaways! Beauty on the Go Kit Smokey Eyes

Hi Bellas,

Back with another tutorial/review/giveaway!  Today's look was inspired from Lady Gaga's gorgeous makeup at this year's Grammys.  The look was bold yet glamorous and kudos to Celebrity Makeup Artist Billy B for finally making celebrity makeup tutorials fun to do!  As soon as I saw Gaga's look, I knew I wanted to recreate it.  I did this look right after the awards but wanted to wait till today to make sure I posted it with my Sigma Makeup Friday Giveaways.

The look is pretty much a smokey eye and hot pink lip.  I've seen a few tutorials on YouTube so far, but I wanted to post my take on it.  Some of the tutorials used a bit of green in her smokey eye.  I stuck with silvers/grays because that's what I saw in the pictures. 

Happily, I was able to use my Sigma Makeup Beauty on the Go Kit in Smokey Eyes.  I love killing two birds with one stone - getting to do a tutorial and review all in one.  Since I didn't have a matte brown in the quad, I improvised by using my Styli Style liner from as a brown base.  I think it's great to use liners as shadow bases and in the video I show you how to do it.

Check out my video tutorial!

My Thoughts on the Quad: 
Check out my previous review on the Sigma Neutral Shades Kit to see information on packaging and pricing since that didn't change.
Like the Neutral Shades Kit, the colors are again pretty shimmery.  There is one exception however, the Paint It Black Shade has a bit of shimmer to it but it's more of an intense velvet kind of shade.  One of the most vibrant blacks i've tried!   However, it's still very loose so watch for fall out.  My next favorite shade is the dark silver called You Got the Silver which I used as my lid color in the tutorial.  The other two shades are okay, just super shimmery.  I would recommend using a matte highlight color with these shades to balance them out.
