a little different to my usual posts as it actually contains my face! as much as i love blogging i'm still getting used to having to sit infront of a camera and take photos of myself for the whole blogging universe to scrutinise. however due to quite a lot of you asking for this kind of post i didn't want to let the team down. everyday if i'm going out in public my make up routine always includes a neutral smokey eye and eyeliner, apart from the odd days when i'm rushing to get ready for work. as long as you know the right method, eye make up can stay on all day. trust me. first and foremost you must use an eye primer. i am currently using MAC paint pots. they are actually sold as a cream eyeshadow but i think they are much better suited as primers as they create a nice smooth layer for powdered shadow to be applied. to create my look i applied walk of shame all over my eyelid and up to the brow bone, followed by a layer of naked 2 over the top. then with a fluffy brush i blended faint into the crease. finally using a pencil brush i highlighted the brow bone with venus and voilé the smokey eye is done. easy as pie. if you aren't confident with liquid eyeliner then you don't have to do it, it's just my personal preference. it will still look gorgeous with a generous coating of mascara. if you want to make the look more intense to make it just that more smokey, use a kohl eyeliner and apply it to both top and bottom water line. i really enjoy this look and i hope you do too!

p.s i know a few people are having a few issues following via gfc at the moment, it's because i'm currently in transition to my own domain (so professional, haha) so if you search www.charissarae.com instead of www.charissarae.blogspot.co.uk it will show up, i promise.

  7. I must get this palette - it looks so pretty how you've used it, and a subtle smokey eye is my go-to as well. I'm guilty of having never bothered with eyelid primer though! xoxo

  13. Great post, you look beautiful! I am really debating whether or not to get this palette... I'm not the most skilled with eyeshadows (especially matte ones), but clearly you know how to work its magic!! Good job getting your own domain!

  14. You are so gorgeous! <3 Thanks for sharing your everyday makeup products with us! I'm really interested in trying the Maybelline Colossal Volume Express Mascara now, as your lashes look amazing. I currently use the Maybelline Illegal Length mascara which is excellent at really making your lashes longer, but it doesn't provide as much volume as I wanted. I'll definitely have to check out the Colossal though! :)

    And, ahh, the Naked 2 Palette! I've been thinking about getting the Naked palette, but I'm not sure if I would have enough time to apply eyeshadow on everyday, but the colors are just simply too pretty to pass up.

    You have such a wonderful blog! :) I'm now your newest follower. Looking forward to reading your upcoming posts!

    1. Thanks for such a lovely comment doll! I've been using colossal for years and I rarely buy any other mascara's. If you want a naked palette better suited for evening I'd go for the naked 2 palette :) x
