FOTD: Black/red smokey eye

Not having to get up at 5 has its perks as in, you're getting a full night of sleep instead of the regular nap, and also I could finally play with makeup again. Also, I solved my issue with Mac's Face & Body foundation.  Read more for details and close ups!

This look was loosely inspired by this tutorial by Desi Perkins. By 'loosely inspired' I mean that I used the idea of the black and the red eyeshadow and I changed everything else. Also, I don't own any of the products she used to I went around my stash to find some replacements. At the end I decided to throw on some what I thought was 'barely there white glitter for a subtle accent', which it didn't turn out to be. I really liked the outcome anyway, that glitter is magical!

I'm still on team #nobrows this month. I don't know why but I'm just not into the heavy brow look anymore. I still fill in the gaps lightly but I keep them a little messy on purpose.

For the rest of the face I kept it simple because I had to go to school and I was in a little bit of a hurry (hence why the awkward face in the top picure). In my previous FOTD post I mentioned mentioning having issues with Mac's Face & Body foundation, and I'm very glad to report that I have figured out what it is. Here it is: Mac's Face & Body does not work with the Smashbox Photo Finish Primer. That's it! When I swapped that primer for the L'Oréal Luminizing Primer all my issues were gone. I'm very glad to end the triology of FOTD posts where I talk about Face & Body foundation!
