This is my first ever Get the Look post and I hope you enjoy it! Forgive me for the terrible collage-ing skills but I will get better at it – promise! Or at least I hope so.
The Smoky Eye look has long been one of the most common makeup looks for nights out! It adds drama and definition for a sultry and sophisticated look! Just take a look at Jessica Alba in the collage above? Très classy & chic, don’t you think?
Here, I’ve rounded up some of my favorite products in order to create Alba’s look.
Isadora Perfect Contour Kajal – Swedish brand, Isadora is new to the UAE market and I have been impressed with most of their products that I have tried so far. Isadora’s products are all fragrance-free and this super soft pencil in black is perfect for the most sensitive eyes! Use this kajal to line your waterline as seen above! Isadora products can be found at BeautyBay in Mirdif City Center, Boots in Mall of the Emirates, Breakwater Marina Mall in Abu Dhabi, and LifeStyle in Abu Dhabi.
Mikyajy’s Sabaya Mascara Essentials Kit – The mascaras in this kit are also suitable for the most sensitive eyes just as the rest of the Sabaya line from Mikyajy. The kit comes with the highest quality mascaras which include the Sabaya 3-in-1 Mascara, Sabaya Volume & Length Mascara and Sabaya Waterproof Mascara. Each of these mascaras is suited for different functions! The 3-in-1 adds volume, length and curl to the lashes while the Sabya Volume & Length mascara is used for added length and thickness! For everyday use, the Waterproof Volume Mascara also gives great volume to lashes.
Make Up Forever’s Aqua Shadow Sticks – These eye shadow sticks are designed to offer women the chance to dress up their eyes as quickly as possible (in under five minutes)! These waterproof shadows in Black and Pearly Beige are the perfect smoky eye makers. If you would like to test these along with your make up skills, I definitely recommend paying a visit to the brand’s recently opened in-store make up studio at Sephora, Mall of the Emirates. You can pick any class to learn from their menu with one-on-one lessons! The Smoky Eye Technique is priced at AED 150. The makeup artist will demonstrate how to apply it on one eye while you will have to do the other! Educational & fun!
UNE’s Glimmer Lips & Golden BB Cream – These two truly add the color of the sun on your face! Apply these products for a nude and glowing look like the one Jessica is sporting above! They will definitely draw more attention to your sexy, smoky eyes and bring out the beauty of natural and healthy looking skin! These 100% natural products are sure to make great additions to your makeup bag I have the lipgloss already and I love it due to its light and non-sticky texture!
Have you tried any of the above products? How often do you apply the smoky eye to your makeup routine?
P.s. I just noticed that I should have probably made the collage background white instead of whatever it is now to blend in with the white backgrounds of the product images – right? Dagnamit! Like I said, forgive my suck-y collage-ing skills!
