Beauty Spot: Colorful, Smokey Eye Tutorial





Products used - I purchased all of them at Nordstrom Beauty Spot:

Smashbox Photo Finish Lid Primer
NARS Soft Touch Shadow Pencil in "Celebrate
NARS eyeshadow duo in "Rated R"
MAC eyeshadow in "Deep Truth"
MAC eyeshadow in "Electra"
MAC Pearlglide Intense Eyeliner in "Petrol Blue"
Stila "Stay All Day" Waterproof Liquid Liner
Estée Lauder "Turbolash" All Effects Motion Mascara



 Lips, cheeks, brows:  NARS Lipstick in "Niagara" , Smashbox blush rush in "Heartbreak", Anastasia Brow Wiz pencil

 
I teamed up with Nordstrom Beauty Spot to bring you today's makeup tutorial: colored smoke. I'm really excited about this collaboration, because I'm truly an avid Nordstrom Beauty Spot shopper! I do a lot of my shopping online, and I love that they not only have free shipping, but also the most amazing return policy. Since I like to experiment with a lot of different products, I love knowing that if something doesn't work out, I can return it or swap it for something else. For today's tutorial, I created a colorful, smokey eye. Based off of a traditional smokey eye, I swapped out the usual greys and blacks for something a little more vibrant, while still maintaining the overall sultry effect. Want to recreate this look? Grab your products, and follow along after the cut for my step by step tutorial - and make sure to check out Nordstrom Beauty Spot for more tutorials and beauty how-tos!

  14. I love this, and it's perfect for a daytime or party smokey eye.

    I personally love going to the beauty spot for Skincare. It's the only place with a Kiehls anywhere reasonably near me.
