ELIE SAAB HAUTE COUTURE INSPIRED MAKE UP

KEEP THE LIPS PALE WITH MAC MODESTY LIPSTICK

KEEP THE BLUSH MINIMAL. I USED EVERYDAY MINERALS IN SNOOZE BAR.

WITH AN ANGLED BRUSH LINE THE LOWER LASH LINE WITH BROWN SHADOW FOLLOWED BY A BLACK SHADOW. CONCENTRATE ON THE OUTER CORNERS. LINE THE WATER LINE WITH A WHITE KOHL LINER.

APPLY A BLACK SHADOW ON THE CREASE AND BLEND. APPLY A THIN LINE ON THE LASH BED. CURL YOUR LASHES AND APPLY TWO COATS ON MASCARE ON THE TOP AND LOWER LASHES.

WITH A CONTOUR BRUSH, APPLY A MEDIUM BROWN SHADOW ON THE CREASE. FOLLOW THAT UP WITH A DARKER BROWN, THIS TIME CONCENTRATE ON THE SOCKETS OF YOUR EYES.

START WITH A BEIGE OR WHITE EYESHADOW APPLIED WITH A FLAT SHADER BRUSH FROM THE LASH BED ALL THE WAY TO THE BROW BONE.

THE INSPIRATION. BROWN SMOKEY EYES

Aside from breath taking pieces from the Elie Saab Couture shows, I think the make up was just fabulous! It was smokey but not the usual heavy rimmed eyes that can normally be found during the Versace shows. I also love the fact that browns were used, so, if interpreted can be flattering on any skin colour plus this look can be worn to the office :)

You have to excuse the photos as I think the flash was too much.
