Yup, I’m a day late! I thought it was Tuesday for most of yesterday. A classic faux pas in the life of a stay at home/work at home mom. A Monday is a Tuesday is a Friday!
My Wednesday/Thursday Eye Look is inspired by my upcoming second tutorial in my Wedding Season Series. In my first post in the series, a tutorial on facial contouring, I mentioned that next week I’ll be doing a Smokey Eye tutorial, and A LOT of you were excited for this! Thank you to all of my readers, I appreciate every comment and email tremendously.
So with the clear demand for smokey eyes I decided to do a daytime friendly smokey eye in purple for Wink Wink Wednesday/Thursday/Whatever.
I’ll get into more detail and walk you through step by step how to do a smokey eye in the upcoming tutorial, but hopefully this will tide you over till then!
If you’re going for a dramatic eye look, whether day or night (barring it’s a black tie event) wear natural (just add a clear gloss) or neutral lip colors. Choose either a statement necklace OR statement earrings for daytime, not both, as there’s a lot going on with the eyes in and of themselves.
Purple is THE color for 2014 (Radiant Orchid to get specific) so don’t hesitate to match your eye color to a purple piece in your outfit. I hope you have fun with this look and I can’t wait to share the tutorial with you!
