    HOW TO DO SMOKEY EYES LIKE A VICTORIAS SECRET ANGEL

    What girl hasn't wanted to have perfect makeup like the Victorias Secret Angels. Makeup not only enhances your features when done right, but it literally boosts your inner confidence. The bronze smokey eye and nude lip is my go-to makeup on almost a daily basis. The everyday woman isnt likely to wear a look like this daily, or even weekly, but its perfect for any special occasion. Its surprisingly one of the easiest eyes to wear, it suits almost any eye shape and can be customized slightly to suit any skin tone. Im going to fill you in on a recipe achieving the eye and lip shown above on the AMAZING Adriana Lima. All Products listed will be MAC Cosmetics. 

    INGREDIENTS: (EYES)

    *Painterly Paint Pot, brush 252
    *Shroom Eyeshadow (1), brush 239
    *All That Glitters Eyeshadow (2), brush 219
    *Bronze Eyeshadow (3), brush 217 & 219
    *Carbon Eyeshadow (4), brush 217
    *Smolder Pencil
    *Mascara of your choice, I prefer Zoomlash.

    INGREDIENTS: (LIPS)

    *Subculture Lip Pencil
    *Creme De Nude Lipstick

    INSTRUCTIONS:

    Start by applying painterly paint pot , lightly over each lid. Ive numbered the shadows in the image to help you visually see where they go. Start by highlighting the browbone with "Shroom". Use "All That Glitters" to brighten the tear duct area. "Bronze" will be blended all over the lower lid, starting from the lashline and blending up into the crease. "Bronze" will also be used under the eye for smoking out the liner. "Carbon" is the last shadow and will be applied directly on top of bronze, only on the outter corners of the eyes, top and bottom. Think of applying it in a sideways "V", fading it into the "Bronze" toward the center of the eye. The last 2 finishing touches will be lining the waterline with "Smolder" pencil, and topping it off with mascara. (PERSONAL TIP: I always keep a clean #224 brush on hand, and after every color I apply, I use my 224 to blend out around the edges. Blending is the KEY to a successful smokey eye! Each color should melt into the next and there should be no visible hard lines. Im known for doing things backward with makeup, but there is definitely a method to my madness! Start with your eye makeup first! Most people do foundation first, but you will save yourself tons of time if you switch it up! Doing your eyes first allows you to just do a quick fallout cleanup with a wipe, then you can add fresh and clean foundation.)

    Polish off this sexy look with a nude lip! Again, I do it a little backward but try applying your lipstick first, then cleaning up the lines with your liner! The liner will look so much softer when you have a lipstick base to blend it into. 

    Have fun with this look, its meant to bring out your inner "Angel".
