Makeup of the Day January 23rd

Today's Makeup of the Day is smokey black shimmery eyes with bright milkshake pink lips! 

The foundation I'm wearing today is Revlon's PhotoReady Makeup set with a loose powder and the one I use everyday is Mary Kay Mineral Foundation. 
To create the sexy smokey eyes I created a black eye base with my NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Black Bean and smudged with my finger, then with an flat eyeshadow brush I packed my eyelid with Revlon's Black Galaxy eyeshadow. Next with a soft blending brush I blended up and past my crease. I used Too Faced Nude Beach under my eyeshadow and blended the colour down to my crease so that the black faded up into the nude. I added Silky Teddy by Too Faced into my inner corner of eye and the inner corner of my lower lash line to brighten the eye area. I lined my top lash line with Mary Kay's Black liquid eyeliner and then smudged Black Galaxy under my lower lash line. I added 2 coats of black mascara to my top lashes and 1 coat to my bottom lashes. 

For the cheeks I wanted a sweet innocent look to contrast the smokey eyes so I contoured my cheeks with my favourite Benefit Blush, Dallas. Then while smiling I dusted a pink frosty loose eyeshadow on my cheeks and blended with a contoured Blush brush. 

Lips today was my classic signature baby pink; however today I used a new lip gloss I recently bought from Benefit called Who Are You Wearing. Firstly I lined my lips with my NYX Dolly Pink lipliner then filled in with my favourite Lime Crime Lipstick, Great Pink Planet.
