My First Slightly Smokey FOTD

Not many people know this, but I actually live in three different places. Although effective this April, it will become one only! LOL So I can't always have my makeup with me wherever I go. When I had an unexpected gig, I had to put on a face since it was night time! I couldn't work with much, since I only had my Ecotools 5-piece brush set (with only one eyeshadow brush) and my Ulta Get Gorgeous Makeup Kit. I was actually pleasantly surprised with my Ulta set, the blushes have good pigmentation and last long, the eyeshadows are good although they're not really wow, the concealer is not cakey, etc. So, I actually survived! The hardest part with doing this face is that I only had one eyeshadow brush, and I used it to apply four different colors. Baaad me, I know. It's not exactly what I would have wanted, but it had to be done. Anyway, this look had no contour or anything, no brow stuff that I normally use, since I had no stuff to use. LOL

BTW, everything I used came from Ulta except for foundation and mascara. And another BTW, I don't do the darker color on the crease area anymore on my self ever since I discovered that in MU school that it doesn't go well with my eye shape. I'll start doing it again if ever I get eyelid surgery in the future. LOL

I didn't do an uber smokey look since I wasn't sure I could pull it off, so I just did something more subdued.

So here's the look with flash, just so the colors would be more obvious:



 Please excuse the hair. It was still wet when I took the pictures.

A closer look at the eye makeup:


 
 
It's funny how my contacts look blue in pictures, it's actually more gray than blue in real life.

And here is how it finally looks like, without flash:
 

 
So do you think I can pull off an even smokier eye? I'm still quite scared on my own face. Or I should stick to more neutral looks? Next time I will use more appropriate brushes.

You did a fantastic job with the eyes. You've got such a pretty face, so personally, I think you can afford to go darker. That's a such a gorgeous lip colour, btw! :)
