Smokey Eyes


Darlings, CC rarely posts about beauty and makeup, but she had to make an exception for the smokey eye... CC's BF GP is positively obsessed with this look, so CC is making every effort to duplicate it. What do you think of the smokey eye?

Smokey eyes are totally sexy and so glamorous:) They look beautiful paired up with a little black dress and high heels:) Happy Tuesday, darling

maybe it's because I really-really liked heavy metal when I was in highschool, but this is my favorite make up style. thanks for sharing, lovely Carrie!

Ooh, I don't blame GP for loving the smokey eyed look. It is literally one of my favorite makeup styles. Smokey eyes and nude lips - gorg!! :)

I love Keira and Natalie smokey eyes!! This technique is a very sexy way to make eyes look more intense. But also is difficult!!

How beautiful, I am always trying to get the perfect smokey eye, but it ends up looking more like raccoon eyes because I have no idea how to apply make up!

Kashaya said...

I love smokey eyes but I'm not very good at doing it myself....

Panty Buns said...

Smokey eyes are beautiful. The makeup in the photos you posted is pretty. I've seen several examples of smokey eye makeup done by bloggers I follow (like London Rose, among others) and a great variety of beautiful smokey eye makeup tutorials by some of my YouTube friends and on some of the YouTube channels I subscribe to. Some of the makeup, brushes, methods and talent are awesome and some of the resulting looks are fantastic.

admittedly, I love it. It's really the only eye I ever do ...lighter for the day ...heavier for the night. I hope it never goes out of style because it's what makes my eyes stand out the best.

Oooh I have been trying for SO LONG to give myself perfect smokey eyes. Of course, I fail. Sigh. I guess practice makes perfect, right? Maybe someday I will make my eyes look as good as these gorgeous ladies. :)

I am all for the smokey eye look. It can make a woman look so glam and intriguing. It's one of my all time favorite make-up styles too so I can see why your BF goes for it.
