MOTD: Smokey/Hazy Eyes

So I wanted to have a nice face for work today, I was going to meet with someone to help with their photojournalism project so I needed to look a little decent since I was going to be in photos, haha! I actually tried my best at doing a smoky/blended out/hazy eye look. I wanted some definition with a dark color but for the sake of it not looking too much like a club/party look I blended it out to make it softer. I didn’t use a lot of products on my face, just a bit of concealer and some powder is all. I didn’t even contour!


Flower That’s Kohl Kajal Eyeliner in Total Blackout ($8)

bH Cosmetics That’s Heart Palette (1st color on the 2nd row as well as the last color) (on sale for $6.50)

NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Black Bean ($4.50)

Smashbox Full Exposure Travel Size Mascara ($9)

Urban Decay’s Eye Primer Potion Travel Size ($12)

That’s about it. It’s a very simple look.

First I started off with a bit of primer potion. Then I started to by line my lashline with the kohl eyeliner. i’ve never used a kohl eyeliner before so I was plesently surprised to find it so creamy and blendable. I wanted to do a dramatic/graphic cut crease with the bold eyeliner but since it turned out so creamy I decided to blend it and smudge it with the smudge tip on the opposite side of the pencil. Once I had this light base color I thought I’d go in an add Black bean over it. I smudged it out with a fluffy brush in a circular motion.

With Black bean on top it was a little darker.

On top of that I buffed in the last color on the second row of shadows in the That’s Heart Palette


I buffed this in, also using circular motions and diffusing any harsh lines I created. Then I got a clean c-shaped brush and added a bit of the gold shimmery color (1st shadow of the second row) in the inner corner and middle of the mobile lid. I just packed the color on a bit and didn’t blend the goldish color since I wanted it to pop and add highlight. Lastly I added a bit of the actual highlighter powder under my browbone. I finished the eyes off with two coats of Smashbox’s Full Exposure Mascara.

For the concealer I used the The Lighten Up! Brightening Concealer from Flower. I blended this with my damp Real Techniques Blending Sponge. Then I added Covergirl’s Sensitive pressed foundation powder all over my face with a fluffy powder brush.

For the Lips I used Maybelline’s Color Sensational Lipstick in Truffle Tease and Covergirl’s Lip Perfection Lip pencil in Seduce.


The natural sunlight really made the gold shimmer color pop really well. Since the eyes were a little dark I thought I’d try the nude lipstick. I’ve been meaning to try nudes for a little bit and I think maybe using a dark lip liner underneath the Truffle Tease might have made the color pop out a little bit more because It almost looked like I had pale lips. The color was just a smidge lighter than my natural lip color.

Hope you guys liked this look!
