EOTN: Navy Blue Smokey Eye

I love getting ready! 

Don't get me wrong I also love to go out but the getting ready part is probably my favourite part of the evening...except of course for dancing with my gorgeous friend Elaina!!

My favourite part about getting ready is of course doing my makeup (duh, this is a beauty blog after all). I love creating a really sexy smokey eye, which is what I typically wear on nights out. 

I thought I would share with you all the latest smokey eye I have been trying out lately. It's a gorgeous navy blue smokey eye using eyeshadows from my favourite makeup brand Nars. 

Excuse the undone hair haha this seems to be a trend in my posts!

**Excuse the shininess in these photos I had to use flash as it was night-time and it made me look super oily...weird considering I am a dry-skinned girl haha

To create this look I first primed my eyes with UDPP. I next applied the Nars single eyeshadow in Outremer all over the lid and slightly into the crease as a base. Then I applied the lighter shade from my Nars duo eyeshadow in Dogon on the inner third of my eye blending it in with Outremer. I also carried that up slightly into the crease. After that I deepened the outer v and crease with the darker shade from the duo and blended it all together as well as bringing the colours underneath my eye. I then lined my eyes with Urban Decay's 24/7 liner in Zero. 

I also decided to use some corner lashes for this look and opted for some that were in my POBM goodie bag. They are the brand Wasp and they came in a set (DL3) with some lash glue and an applicator tool. I love love love these lashes, being just corner lashes it's hard to tell I am wearing them but they make my lashes appear a lot fuller. I then added 2 coats of L'Oreal Voluminous mascara. 

I hope you guys enjoy this EOTN :) 

How do you guys do your makeup for a night on the town??
