Smashbox Cherry Smoke Photo OP Eyeshadow Palette
Smashbox Brow Tech in Taupe/Soft Brown
I am somewhat late with this post, having created this smokey eye as one of my Christmas beauty looks I had no time to actually put it on my blog. Even though I believe this palette to be LE [limited edition] I still want to share it with you because the texture and pigments of Smashbox eyeshadows are sublime! So I am looking into investing in a couple more of their eyeshadow palette, particularly excited about the new Double Exposure Palette!!
So to create this look I applies Oxidize eyeshadow all over and Rustic in the socket for extra depth, also smoking it out under the lower lash line, while highlighting the brow-bone with Bare. All three eyeshadows are from this palette. Oxidize is a stunning burned coppery cranberry with a metallic finish, Rustic is a matte deep red-ish chocolate brown, and Bare is just a matte base colour. The texture is amazing, incredibly smooth and super blendable, as well as beautifully pigmented.
The day I purchased this palette I also got to other Smashbox eye products both of which I am also wearing in this look, Brow Tech in Taupe/Soft Brown, which is a great colour for blondes with medium skin. Brow Tech has to powder shades that you can mix with an angled brush to create the perfect shade, which you then dip into the wax and then fill in the brows. This product is not designed to look neat after usage, but it does the job when it comes to a natural looking brow. And the second eye product that I have already featured in my V-Day Brigitte Bardot look [click here to see the image of the product] is the Jet Set Waterproof Eye Liner in Deep Black. As you can see it's a saturated black with a chic matte finish. Both of these products are from the permanent line.
