Smokey Eye Saturday

I promise I'm not naked; my hair is hiding my straps.
I'm heading out to my friend Henry's house party, but I got ready freakishly fast so I thought I'd share my FOTN.  I didn't do anything too fancy as it's just going to be a lot of sitting around playing drinking games with the usual suspects, but since a couple of cute boys Facebook RSVP-ed I obvs want to look casually gorgeous but not like I'm wearing too much makeup.
I opted to not wear foundation (or even tinted moisturizer), as my skin is actually in pretty good shape lately but applied Revlon Colorstay Concealer only where absolutely necessary as well as Boots No7 Illuminating Lotion to the high points of my cheekbones.  For my eyes, I'm wearing Wet n Wild Color Icon eyeshadow trio in Silent Treatment and Almay Get Up & Grow Mascara in Black waterproof with e.l.f. Wet Gloss Lash & Brow Clear Mascara to set my brows. I also swept NYC Sunny Bronzer along the underside of my cheekbones and blended into my temples and around the sides of my massive forehead. I finished my look with just a touch of Milani Baked Blush in Dolce Pink and Burt's Bees tinted lip balm.

Wet n Wild does such a great satiny taupe.

What do you think of this look? What makeup do you typically wear to parties?

P.S. If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I got my conch punched on Friday the 13th, but I guess I haven't blogged since then so I made sure it's visible in the first picture.


  1. Love it! I wish I was going to a house party!

    1. Thanks, bb. I'd love to show you around Orlando if you're ever down here.

  2. You did a great job here! I love the smokey eye look. I need to perfect mine more :)

    1. Thanks! This one isn't super smokey which is, I think, more appropriate for a get together with friends. I've found the key to nailing the smokey eye is adding just a touch of dark shadow to the outer corner of your crease then blending it back and forth super well. If you try applying too much off the bat, it can end up looking really messy. I hope this helps.

  3. It's great smoked eye look for everyday.Just what we need for Fall/Winter. Looks wonderful on You!
    I'm just mascara at the moment and more about lips- lipstick.

    xoxo Ra

  4. Love your eye look it really suits you. Hope you had a nice time xx
