Still wearing tons of nude lip colors lately, and now longing for a copper eye, this has been a well-loved look as of late.


NARS Fez Smoky Eye Look profile


I started with ARDENCY INN Americana Ultra Lightweight Skin Perfecting Primer applied with my hands. For a flawless base I used a damp sponge to tap on Becca Ultimate Coverage Complexion Creme in Nude before concealing my undereyes with Concealing Creme in Macadamia. I dusted over everything with Cover FX Illuminating Setting Powder in Light. With the edge of the OCC #011 brush I tapped Becca Lowlight Pressed and ran a line under each cheekbone before using the ends of the bristles to blend, blend, blend, and blend some more. I ran Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed in Opal over the tops of my cheekbones, up around my temples, and down the bridge of my nose. To finish the complexion, I used the Sonia Kashuk #29 brush to apply Becca Mineral Blush in Wild Honey to the apples of my cheeks.

For the eyes I started with NARS Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base.  Using my NARSissist eyeshadow palette and the NARS #40 brush, I swept Madrague I from lashes to brows, then Madrague II from lashes through the crease. From lashes to the crease I patted on NARS Fez with an e.l.f. flat eyeshadow brush. Then I blended a little more through the crease using the Too Faced Crease/Blender brush.

I ran Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Hustle along my upper lashes and Demolition on my lower waterlines as well as at the outer half of my lower lashline. Then I used the same e.l.f. brush and more of NARS Fez heavily under the lower lashes before finishing the eyes with Urban Decay Perversion Mascara. I filled and set my brows with Senna Form-A-Brow Neutral and Brow Fix Golden Brown, then completed the look with NARS Satin Lip Pencil in Isola Bella.
