FOTD: Rich Mahogany brown smokey eye! (opinions on my glasses?)


Hey ho! I'm on holiday in Cambodia right now! Visiting some friends, going to do some shopping! I'll be posting some pictures of the trip so far in a few days!

Here's a rich glamorous mahogany shade of brown I used for a smokey look! Who said neutrals are boring? Make them rich, luxurious, sexy and oh so easy to wear out!

Continue below for close ups, the products used and this look with glasses on!
Rich mahogany brown smokey eye! Making neutrals rock!

Rich mahogany brown smokey eye!
The complete look! Adds depth and looks brilliantly posh with some blush!
Drag the shimmery white from the inner corner across the lid, it creates depth and creates a gradient!
I held a tissue under my eye for the winged look, then used a wet q-tip to neaten it up!
I used the blush from this lancome travel palette I reviewed here!
Eyeshadows I used: White from Silky girl duo (review here), highlight from thebalm (review here), MAC single shadow (imitation MAC bought on holiday years ago! haha!)

Here's the look with my glasses on! I wear contacts everyday, clear contacts for astigmatism! However at home I wear glasses, I never wear them out because I'm touchy about hair and can't bother with something getting in my way. 

But sometimes I think they look quite good on, I guess I'm just vain!

























Do you wear contacts/glasses?
 What do you think of this look with my glasses?
 let me know!


Feel free to leave comments! Thanks for stopping by!

    1. I didn't think of that but I think it definitely would! Haha...oh no! Do get a versatile pair! I love how black frame ones are appropriate for everything. Compared to my old cartoon printed frames when I was a kid! :)

  7. Love the way you wing out your shadow and how it looks like it's darker at the outer corners :) Your eyeshadow looks are always really flattering and I like how you change things up. You pull off a whole variety of colours. I think you look super cute with your glasses, I honestly think they're extremely flattering on you. I wear glasses most of the time and contacts only occasionally when I have a specific purpose for them (like watching 3D movies or going to the beach/amusement parks, or when I really need to wear sunglasses :p).

    1. Aww, thanks for the compliments! I honestly don't do too much complicated stuff with my looks, i'm lucky how the shadow just looks darker in the outer corner without any additional shade for this look! Oh, i'm still far too vain most of the time for glasses though! :P
