Smokey Eyes

Saturday the 19th of March was the YFM new line-up photo shoot. This is basically an annual photo shoot to update photos from the previous year. There's a different theme every year and obviously with different themes we have different make-up!

This year we decided to go with the smoky eye for me because it went perfectly with my look, which I can't say much about until the photos are up on the YFM website...I'll keep you updated.

No matter how hard I try, I can never get the smokey look right! It's either too dark or it ends up looking like a big bruise!Not a good look, trust me!

Luckily I didn't have to do it myself, I had Merlene Williams ! She did all the make-up for the photo shoot.She's worked on my face before, for a shoot I had with LoveLife magazine and for the Craz-e Billboards so I knew I was in very good hands!

Here are some of the pics I took.. the make-up was not complete yet. I just want you to see the smokey eye... I love it.
You need to obviously tone it down a bit, this was just for a photo shoot.

There you go! And ladies as with any look you want to go for.. there are rules when it comes to rocking the smokey eye... if you're gonna go smokey on the eyes...go nude on the lips... Heavy eyes accompanied by heavy lips... no! no! it's not a good look.

I'm currently watching a lot of make-up tutorials on YouTube so I can learn how to do my own smokey eye properly.
You can also do the same...
