1923 Face of the Day: Smokey Black pencil

14 Jun 2012

Hello everyone,

Today;s FOTD features a Smokey eye i achieved with a pencil. I have had my very first e/s palette for years now (im too sentimental with it to throw it out and it does have the most beautiful eyebrow highlight for my skin shade).

This was one of the days I felt I had abandoned it for too long and so I used a combination of all the shades in it (except the gold) on my lids. I contoured my eyes with the Orekelewa twist-up pencil in black and my Sedona Lace pointed crease brush.

For my face I used Sleek and BM pro e/s in 700 for my blush.

I hope you like the look. I didn't want to use any fancy products and I'm not quite sure but i think I was in a hurry to get to work.

  1. I will call this look "The Modern African Woman" or maybe I should say "Modern Nigerian Woman." It's simple, and I like the braids too.

    1. Thank you so much dear. And I think i agree with the Modern Nigerian woman theme cos the way i packed my braids looks real African (had to go back and look at it again after reading your comment though).
