Being a mom and a small business owner, I know what it feels like to only have a few minutes to go from drab to fab so I always appreciate an easy go-to makeup look. Instead of having just a plain eye and a pop of color on the lips I actually like to play up my eyes. The fastest way to add a lot of oomph to your eye area is by creating a smoky eye. Maybelline The Blushed Nudes palette has soft feminine shades and helps me create the perfect 5 minute romantic smoky eye. This is definitely a look to love that I would rock on a date night, like Valentine’s Day.
The Blushed Nudes palette is gorgeous, but I am actually a real fan of a lot of the other products they offer in their line. A few things I picked up on a recent trip to Walmart are The Falsies Push Up Drama mascara, a beautiful pink Colorsensational Lipstick in Pink Sand, Master Prime in the shade Illuminate, and the Master Precise Skinny Gel Pencil.
When all paired together they make for a stunning, EASY eye look that anyone can do.
1 Prime your eye. I use the Illuminate Master Prime to get my lids ready for the eyeshadow.
2 Apply color to the lid. Using a flat shader brush apply the taupe eyeshadow all over the lid.
3 Deepen the outer v. Using the same flat shader brush take a dark, matte shade and add depth to the outside portions of the lid and crease.
4 Connect the lower lash line. Take the same matte shade and add color to the lower lash line.
5 Brighten up the inner corner. Take the lightest shade in the palette and with a precise brush apply it to the inner corner of the eye.
6 Wing it out. Take the Skinny liner and create a wing. It doesn’t have to be precise because we are going to smoke it out.
7 Smoke it. Take the matte shade you deepened the outer v with and smoke out the liner. I like doing this because it packs a punch without being overly time consuming.
8 Mascara. Load up your lashes with 1-3 coats of The Falsies Push Up Drama mascara.
9 Lips. Add your favorite pink or red lipstick and you are done!
Really easy, right? Overall the look is very simple but it really packs a punch and I am sure you will LOVE the way it turns out on yourself.
And can I just tell you how big a fan I am of The Falsies Push Up Drama. My lashes are wimpy and this mascara gave them length and volume. Score.
I got these products at my local Walmart! I don’t know if you are like me, but I am constantly walking up and down the makeup aisles even if I am there to get a loaf of bread! ha
