Purple, Black, Metallic Gold, White
2012 NFL Champions
Royal purple and black. These colors are perfect for a smoky eyeshadow. If you look carefully at the Ravens’ color scheme you’ll notice they take on cooler tones. You may have to experiment to see which cool toned colors will work best for your skin. The colors are a great way to unlock your inner cartoon villainess. I used these colors for a basic smoky eye with a graphic interest.
Purple – Inglot 494
Black – Black from Nyx Love in Florence Eyeshadow Palette in Ciao Bella
Metallic Gold – L’Oreal Infallible Eyeshadow in Imperial Gold (limited edition)
White – Matt Malloy from theBalm’s Meet Matt(e) Nude Palette
Smoky eye is a basic makeup technique that can hide all sorts of eye makeup skins. Did your mascara transfer? Smudge it out towards your bottom lashes and now you look like you intentionally made raccoon eyes! That color you used was a little darker than intended? Smudge it out to something lighter (don’t forget to balance it out on your other eye.) Use your favorite brush, a clean finger, smudging tool, even a Q-tip and smudge away your mistakes. I made the black line exaggerated to almost touch my eyebrows. It’s a graphic statement that somehow makes your eyes more expressive. See me looking off to the side? All that attitude with two (bold) lines.
