Full On Bombshell Smokey Makeup Look for a Rare Night Out

Last weekend we went out for my BFF’s birthday so I took the opportunity to go all out with my makeup. It’s not often my husband and I get to go out anymore and even though it was just out to dinner and back to her place for drinks after I decided to treat it as a full on night on the town! Now I must apologize in advance for the insatiable lemmings I am going to create for the illustrious, and no longer available, Le Metier de Beaute Smoldering Embarkment Kaleidoscope Eye Kit. I really, REALLY wish they would bring this back. It is my all time favourite smokey eye look and I can’t bear the thought of not having a back up. I also want to be able to carry one in my kit to use on clients. Please Le Metier de Beaute….PLEASE…. *bats lashes*.

I also picked up a new Maybelline Color Whisper Lipstick at the Maybelline Fall/Winter 2013 Trends Event last week when I had my lip print read by the Lipstick Psychic that was there. So fun!  The shade is Lust for Blush and it is a phenomenal pale nude mauve pink. It may just be my new favourite lip pairing for an intense smokey eye. I can’t wait to share more from this event with you. There are so many incredible new products from Maybelline. I am especially looking forward to sharing the Fall/Winter 2013 look trends that the beautiful Grace Lee demonstrated for us when it gets closer to fall.

    You look so beautiful. I agree with the others that you need to go out more so you can have this kind of look.
    I’m so getting that Maybelline lipstick – it’s the exact kind of shade I like.
