FOTD: Navy Smokey Eye

I was playing around with some of my shadows this weekend and ended up with this look. I really adore the way navy suits my eye color and its a nice change from the typical black smokey eye.

(sorry for the blurry pic)





Here's what I used.

Face:
  • Gosh Cosmetics Foundation Primer
  • Face Atelier Pro Liquid Foundation in #7
  • Mac Cosmetics Studio Sculpt Concealer in NC30
  • Mac Cosmetics Mineralized Skin Finish in Medium Deep
  • Mac Cosmetics Blush in Trace Gold (on upper cheeks & apples)
  • Mac cosmetics Blush/Bronzer in Blunt (to contour)
Eyes:
  • Urban Decay Primer Potion in Sin
  • Mac Cosmetics Shadow in Shroom (all over lid,tear duct and on brow bone)
  • Mac Cosmetics Shadow in Deep Truth (in crease and lower lash line)
  • Annabelle Waterproof Liner in Black (on upper and lower lash line and smudged with brush into lash line)
  • CoverGirl Lashblast Mascara in Very Black
Lips:
  • Face Atelier Lip Glaze in Cameo
The deep Truth I have is from the Shadowy Lady quad palette like the one below. Shroom is one of my fav must have shades by Mac I wear it almost every day.



In the pics the navy kind of looks grey but in person there was a hint of blue. I tried to capture the image as best as I could but it was hard to capture the true color.

Here is the pic I tweeted from my phone you can see the colors a bit better.


What do you guys think?
Have you tried a navy look?

Love it! What a coincidence, I did a navy smokey look for work today, however I think I overdid the navy - looks like I am wearing too much makeup for the office. I love how subtle your smokey eye is. I will definitely try it :)

I LOVE the way Navy looks. I just did a Navy smoky eye on my eyes this weekend too. I posted pics on my blog. I was saying that I really like the way it looks on my eyes because my eyes are light brown and the blue makes them look honey colored. Your makeup looks beautiful in this picture.

Love Navy! Very pretty. It's the best smokey eye, black is a bit too dramatic and sometimes makes my eyes look smaller.

I was trying to scan the products for which false lashes you are using. Translation: I'm jealous of your lashes. :)
