Yummy411: Smokey Eye Week!

MAC's Smoke Signals collection of last year was too much fun. I, however, missed out on the fun and didn't get the Smokey Eye Quad. Luckily for me, they included a Smokey Eye palette in the Christmas collection this year. In an effort to put my Smokey Eye palette to use, I'm declaring this my Smokey Eye week! The Smokey Eye is one of the most requested and popular looks ever, even by brides!

Starting with Sunday's and Monday's Looks:
(Smokey Eye palette used for both; for future looks I will keep a list of detailed color and placement!)



For Monday's look, I tried the orange color concealer trick. Sorry for not providing full frontal pics, but my eyes were looking a bit wonky. =p While I got many compliments, I will still work on this. It's not quite to my satisfaction. I did say I was neurotic right?
