LOTD: Subtle Smokey

Hello darlings!

Recently, I have been experimenting on eye shadows: how to apply, blend and match different colors. So far, I’m still bad at it. LOL. But I’m extremely having fun practicing various techniques, playing around with colors and what I mostly could do is a soft smokey eyes.


I used L’Oreal Paris Color Infallible Eye Shadow in the shade Forever Pink  as a base all over my eye lids. I love this L’Oreal Infallible Eye Shadow because it is very pigmented and gives a satiny finish when applied on the lids. Plus it lasts all for hours which is great for me since I have an oily/combination skin and would cause my eye shadow to crease. Then for the smokey effect, I simply blended a matte warm brown eye shadow at the outer corner of my eyes to the crease creating a V-shape.


Products used
On my face: VICHY Cream Foundation Natural Finish Up To 12HR in Ivory, Fashion 21 Loose Powder, Nichido Powder Blush in Cool Rum
Eyes: San San Waterproof Eyeliner Pen, Estee Lauder Sumptuous Bold Volume Lifting Mascara, L’Oreal Paris Color Infallible Eye Shadow in the shade Forever Pink, San San single eyeshadow in Warm Copper Fire
Brows: Nichido Eye Pencil in Bronze Glow
Lips: Maybelline Baby Lips with SPF20 in Relieving Menthol (not shown on picture), Wet N’ Wild MegaLast Lip Color in 24 Carrot Gold


That’s all folks!

Have an awesome day, you guys!

  1. Love this look, it’s so soft and pretty. If you have a problem with eyeshadows creasing, you could try using an eyeshadow primer like the e.l.f. one, it’s only a dollar or 2 🙂

    • I do srsly have problems with creasing coz I sweat easily (coz of the hot weather in our country) and my skin is oily type. I also use ELF but sometimes the ELF primer works for me other times it doesn’t. But I do like ELF and yet I’m still on a look out for great eye shadow primer to use. Thanks Olivia for the tip and for giving love!!!
