Eyeshadow: smoked pink

Today's look is using more of my The Body Needs ( eyeshadows. There's one each from the Iced, Smoked and Blackened Collections. Not every colour has an equivalent in each of the collections, so this one is a bit different to the other looks I've done most recently.

Left to right: Iced Pink, Smoked Pink and Blackened Maroon.

First, I used Virgin from the Naked palette as my brow highlight. I think this is my favourite highlight colour ever. I applied Smoked Pink all over the lid over Pixie Epoxy and along the inner half of the lower lashline. I added Blackened Maroon to the outer half of the lower lashline and lightly into the crease, then used it foiled as liner along the top lashline. I topped it off with a smidgen of Iced Pink on the inner corner.

A pink I think most will find wearable.

I really like Smoked Pink. I know some pink eyeshadows have the tendency to make you look sick if applied in a certain way, but this one is smoked-out enough that I think most people would find it a wearable colour. Blackened Maroon is also fantastic: it's less black-based than some of the others in the Blackened Collection, but as you can see, it's still dark enough to worn as an eyeliner.
