Clarins Ombre Minerale Dark Chocolate Smoky Eye...

used in this look:
L - Clarins Blush Prodige Illuminating Cheek Colour in 04 Sunset Coral
R - Ombre Minerale Wet & Dry Mineral Eyeshadow Smoothing & Long-Lasting in 13 Dark Chocolate

I already featured these two Clarins products in my Clarins Autumn 2012 Picks... blog post, click on it for more info... Here is a smoky chocolate brown eye look with a warm complexion, using Clarins Ombre Minerale in 13 Dark Chocolate and Clarins Blush Prodige in 04 Sunset Coral... I have used the matte brown from the palette to contour... At first the brown looks like it has some glitter, but it's only a top filter, the matte is great to give your face some structure... And the pretty shimmery peach is the perfect cheek colour to illuminate your face... For a darker blush shade you can mix both colours... This blush is great to create a warm complexion... So you can use the Blush Prodige palette three ways, or even four if you fancy the brown colour as an eyeshadow in the crease to create some shape...

With Ombre Minerale in Dark Chocolate I created a smoky eye... This mineral eyeshadow can be used dry or wet for more intensity... In this look I have used it dry, simply as one colour all over, blending out... Also applying it under the eye... To create a more dramatic smoky eye I always apply a black kohl pencil on the waterline as well as dotting it under the lower lash line and smudging it... Also I used the kohl pencil above the upper lash line and after smudging it I applied the same eyeshadow to make it look more dark and  intense but still  natural, instead of just having a black line sitting there...
