Deep matte brown smokey eye makeup : EOTD and Makeup Breakdown

 

Hi everyone!

Here’s the makeup breakdown of the Deep dark brown matte smokey eye I wore in my NYX Soft matte lip cream FOTD HERE.  It is a simple matte dark brown smokey eye but instead of the regular on kohl on waterline, I have used a flesh colored pencil. This gives the illusion of bigger eyes and is great for women with smaller eyes who are unable to wear smokey eyes otherwise. I have often noticed this kind of smokey eye worn by Keira Knightley.

      I love shimmer and frost too but decided to stock up on some mattes also for a change. This is quite a useful shade, for contouring the eyes, using as a liner etc 🙂

      Thanks Samyukta! I find white a little too stark for our skin tones, prefer flesh colored pencil!

    Wow, love the look of the finish. We will definitely have to stock Bourjois now 🙂

      Thanks Chetana! I’m looking forward it 🙂 As of now, Bourjois is not available online on any Indian website. It’ll be great if you guys stock it.

      I used MAC 217 Parita. The TBS one has a foam tip, its good but I prefer the MAC one. I’ll review the TBS one sometime soon.
