EOTD - Christmas Smokey Eye ♥

This is just a quick simple smokey eye which I think is perfect for Christmas Day and most likely will be wearing this on my eyes :)
(You'll have to excuse my droopy eyes and lack of personality in this post.. I'm so ill right now)
To create this I used a black eyeshadow from my Pixi Natural Mineral kit shown here and the eyeshadow shown beneath from my trusty Sleek palette The Original.
For this look I didn't use a base eyeshadow as I wanted the colours to be as true as possible. First up I placed the black eyeshadow, using my GOSH pencil brush, on the outer half of my eye. The black is smoked out towards the inner corner of my eye and more intense on the outer corner, I also placed this half way under my bottom lashes.

I then took the Sleek colour (pointed out above), with a flat GOSH eyeshadow brush, and placed this all over the lid just up to the crease. I then used the excess shadow on the brush on the inner half of under the bottom lashes.

For a highlight I used my PIXI Sparkle Stix in No.1 Gilded. I wanted the highlight to be quite subtle and the Sparkle Stix is perfect for this.
 I then, of course, had to add some lashes. I used my ELF lashes shown here.

 So there you have it, a quick and easy Christmassy smoked out eye :)

Merry Christmas Everyone!
