If it hasn’t been clear before now, let me just tell you that I am a home body. The hubby and I rarely go out after work or on the weekends. But, there is the occasional after work meeting or dinner that we must attend. Typically, I don’t want to, or have time to completely re-do my makeup from a subtle work-ready look to a going out much more bold look.
What I do when I have such an event, is a subtle smokey eye that is appropriate for the office. Then when I come home from work(or if I am going straight from work, I’ll do it in the bathroom at work), I’ll amp up the smokey-ness with thicker liner and darker shadow.
I thought this might be something you might be interested in, so I made this little tutorial. I used the Naked 2 palette and the brushes it came with, MAC’s Fluidline in backtrack with angled brush, and UD 24/7 liner in Perversion. I didn’t add false lashes to the final night smokey look, but if I were really going out, I would recommend it for added pop.
