Smokey Eyes | Date Night Makeup

Casey B >> 11/30/2015 >>

Here is my take on a classic look - the smokey eye. No night out is complete without some confidence and the perfect (and instant!) way to do that is with a sexy smouldering eye. 

My makeup techniques have progressed since the beginning (thankfully) so I wanted to recreate this look I did a while back using new (and better) products. 

This look is meant for people not afraid of a little makeup. The darkness can really add some drama that you may not be used to - that's okay! It's fun to try new things.

Make Your Eyes Look Bigger

Casey B >> 9/28/2015 >>

When trying to make your eyes appear larger, there are a few steps you can take to help accentuate this. 
  • First, apply a medium dark brown that is 1-2 shades darker than your skin tone, directly into the crease. (See video below for correct placement)

I have been wanting to try this out for a long time now. I have I heard really great things. But I am so stuck in my old ways. I always find something I like and am scared to take a leap, shell out the cash and try something new. This time I decided to take a leap and just do it. I needed a new Primer anyway since I have used up all of mine on my lovely brides and their parties this summer.

After watching several YouTube reviews and reading a ton of Blog reviews, I decided I should just try it. So I did it! 

I am really happy I did! I was super happy with the outcome and just how great my skin looked. Generally I reach for Smashbox, which is more of a gel formula. The Lock It primer is more of a lotion style. 

I feel like my face looked more flawless after a day of wear with this as the base VS when I use no primer. 

In the video below, I try it out for the first time. In addition to wearing it all day and then giving my review at the end. Check it out to see the results!

Colourful Liner

Casey B >> 8/17/2015 >>
Sometimes it just a classic cat eye or winged liner look just isn't enough, and we want more, without really adding too much more. Adding a bright liner before your black liner will achieve a peek-a-boo effect allowing you to rock fun bright colours no matter the occasion. 

Here I have added a vibrant purple. So vibrant, in fact, the camera makes it look like blue pen ink. To see how I got this look, click the video below for a full, quick minute tutorial.
