Look of the Day: Chic & Smoky

I haven't shared a "look of the day" post in quite some time. Today was one of those days where I just played around with whatever caught my eye. I had intended to do a minimal eye look but, you know how that goes - one eye doesn't line up with the other and before you know it you're rocking a smoky eye!

I started with a soft base by using Becca Luminous Skin Colour (cashmere), which gives me a soft light-weight finish. I kept concealer minimal with Bare Minerals Correcting Concealer (light 2). I used a new foundation powder by NARS called, "All Day Luminous Powder Foundation" (santa fe) to set everything.

Moving to the brows, I used a new favorite combo by MAC -"Copperplate" and "Mystery" eye shadows. The eyes are a mixture of "Crave" and "Faint" from the Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette, along with a little bit of "Copperplate". I popped on a pair of lashes (Red Cherry #WSP) and lined my upper lash line with L'oreal Infallible Gel Liner.

The lips I kept soft and rosy. I used Cover Girl Lip Perfection Jumbo Lip Pencil in "Rose Twist" - a soft muted pink (it keeps your lips soft all day!)
Do you guys like playing around and doing your makeup "on a whim"? Or do you stick with what you know? I thought this was a fun look :) Hope you enjoyed too.
