FOTD: Silver Blue Smoke

Hi Bellas,

I wanted to show you a quick look I did recently.  I went for a super blended, silver-blue smoky eye.  It's a super easy look to pull off and honestly looks a lot harder to do that it actually is.

In today's look, I used my Graftobian eyeshadows.

I mainly used colors from the Graftobian FantasEyes - 8 Color Palette #2.  I also supplemented it with some neutral Graftobian shadows.

The look really makes my blue/gray contacts pop!  You can find the contact lenses hereThe consistency of Graftobian eyeshadows is very unique and it really sets them apart from other brands.  These shadows have a firm consistency which prevents crumbling and damage that some soft shadows have issues with.  They are extremely pigmented.  If you apply them dry on a base, they are really vibrant.  If you apply them wet with a medium like Graftobian's Magic Set Mixing and Lining Liquid, you'll get a molten metallic look that's absolutely gorgeous.


Here's the look I came up with:



The FantasEyes palette retails for $79.99 on www.Graftobian.com It comes with a refillable palette and 8 large eyeshadows.  The shadows are probably triple the size of MAC colors and look more around the size of blushes and cheek color.  For this reason, I use many of the shimmery neutral shades as cheek highlighters.
While $79.99 might seem a lot, it actually breaks down like this - each FantasEyes shadow is $8.50 each, and the empty 8 well palette is $11.99.  If you want to start slow, you can always buy the empty palette and then fill it with refills.

I already plan to have some more videos focusing on Graftobian Cosmetics.  They'll be at the upcoming trade shows and IMATS so it's your opportunity to finally test it out and get it in person.  I've filmed another tutorial using this palette, it's a smoldering smokey copper look.  I also plan on doing a video featuring Graftobian foundation and powders for Makeup kits since I get a lot of questions on them.

Stay tuned!
