Face of the Day: Smokey Twilight for Lunch

Today my dad came to take me out for our annual birthday lunch. Every year, I try to find something "crazy" for him to eat because he's not very food adventurous. I debated between Korean and Malaysian this go-round and went  with Malaysian.  It was delish, as usual and Daddy got his food critic on trying to figure out the spices in his dish. It's always fun to watch his expressions. I can't believe I didn't get pictures!  I feel bad because I took the picture of my face then forgot to take my camera with us when he got here. I do that all the time. I guess I just get excited to hang out with someone other than my dear, small Asher-dog. He approved of the food though, so I was happy. If you've never tried Malaysian food, please do. It's one of my favorites.

You must be thinking "Enough about food! Tell us about the products, already!" Well, alright. I'll tell you. Since it was only 2 PM, I wanted to keep it pretty simple. I have a hard time sticking with plain neutral eyes. I always end up going darker no matter what I started off doing. You can take any products that you have similar to the ones I listed below to recreate this look.  I actually subbed the NYX blush in the picture for the Urban Decay After Glow Cheek Tint in Crush, since you can't buy it anymore. You just need a bright pink color. I'll give you a run down of the other colors used so that you can look through your own collection

Glitzy- a sheer coral glossy pencil with a little sparkle. I got this pencil in a set on clearance in Sephora a while back. It came with 6 different products for $25, You'll notice that this pencil alone is $24. I split the set  with a friend, but it was well worth the money.
Yogurt- a creamy champagne color
Dance the Tides- A warm matte brown shade. I've also used UD Buck from the naked palette and got the same result more or less
Twilight- a shimmery lavender gray (one of my faves from ULTA)

For the eyes:
1. I used the  Yogurt pencil as a base for my shadows
2. Blend the brown into the area where your eye ball and socket separate 
3. Lightly pat your gray shadow onto the lid starting nearest to the base of your lashes and blend out any harsh lines with a clean fluffy brush. 

That's all I have for you today my loves.  I hope you enjoyed this post! If you'd like to see more like it, let me know. I think I might do a series of holiday looks. What do you think? What kind of looks would you like to see? I think it's time I get into pictorials. Let me know in the comments below.
