Smoked Taupe

I love my LORAC Pro Palette more than all the Urban Decay Naked palettes combined. It has a perfect blend of shimmery and matte shadows, and multi-use shades ranging from neutrals to jewel tones.

I rarely wear heavy eye makeup, so I created this subdued smokey eye using purple, gold, and brown to create a taupe shade.

I applied my Urban Decay Primer Potion in Sin (see my review here), and then swept Mauve into my crease and all over my lid. I then patted Deep Purple on my lid and deepened my crease with Sable, making sure to blend the colors until I achieved a nice gradient.

I lined my eyes with my Starlooks eyeliner in Obsidian and applied Benefit’s They’re Real! mascara.

I finished the look with my favorite MAC lipstick, Creme Cup.

I think this a great look for fall for those who want to try a smokey eye but are afraid of dark colors. I love finding new ways to wear darker shadows with glasses that don’t make me look like a raccoon.

What’s your favorite palette to experiment with?
