Look Book: Neutral Smokey Eye Using Kat Von D's Get the Look Kit

Because the Kat Von D Rock Chick post was so popular, I figured I would do another one showcasing the other side of the palette. You can find the first look here and the review of everything I use in this look here. I really enjoy doing these looks and if you like seeing them, please let me know in the comments! If not, tell me that too. Or, better yet, take a sec to take the poll at the upper left hand corner of the blog!

From left to right: Peanut, Benji, Rebekah, Lucifer
The full face shots are truer to color than the eye shots. The outer corners are very dark which isn't really reflected in the eye shot. But I figured a close up would be nice to see the structure of the look. I'll have to work on my lighting.

For the eyes: I used Benji (second to the left) from the inner corner to the outer third of my eye.Because of the consistency, I laid this down first for ease of blending.Then, I took Peanut (far left) and dabbed it in my inner corner and brow bone as a highlight. Using Lucifer (matte black) I started shaping the outer V. Really pack it and create almost a cut crease structure and bring the black under your lower lash line. Then, with Rebekah (left of matte black) I took a fluffy blending brush and smoothed out the harsh cut crease and started to fine tune the shape. Wetting a dried out E.L.F. eyeshadow remover pad (great way to salvage those, by the way) I folded it in half to get a straight line and ran it from outer corner to the end of my eyebrow to get that clean edge. I later used a small concealer brush to clean it up. Line with the Autograph Liner that comes in the kit, apply mascara, and that's it!

For the face: Again, I kept it simple because the eyes were so bold. I used just the bronzer from my MAC Mineralized Skin Finish in Pink Power from the Wonder Woman Collection and brushed it, quite heavily, in the hollows of my cheeks. I used Wet N Wild's Idol Eyes Cream Shadow in Pixie on my cheek bones and bridge of my nose and finished off the look with the lipstick that comes in the kit (nude gloss over it).

There will be at least one more look coming up where I use the smokey primer, so keep a lookout!
