Friend Makeover Time: Smokey Eye Look

My good friend Pam has been in town this weekend and she mentioned that she loves the smokey eye look that Gwyneth Paltrow wears. She agreed to play guinea pig and let me try to recreate the look on her!

Here's the inspiration pic:

And here's my interpretation with "before" and "after" pics:

Doesn't she look fab? I tried to keep the smokey/smudginess to a minimum so I didn't scare her. (heehee) Pam also said she preferred a nude lip vs the pinkish one that Gwyneth wears.

Here's what I used:

MAC Blackground paintpot
MAC Gorgeous e/s (from 2008 Smokey Eye Holiday palette) - lid
MAC Carbon e/s - crease
MAC Shroom e/s - highlight and inner tear duct
MAC Smolder eye kohl - lower lash line
Bobbi Brown Black Ink gel eyeliner - upper lash line
MAC Cork e/s - brows
Loreal Voluminous mascara

Mary Kay medium coverage foundation in Ivory 104
MAC Stark Naked blush

MAC Love Nectar lustreglass


Thanks for letting me play, Pam! :)

Hopefully I will be posting more makeover looks soon...

Thanks Cindy! I can't really tell what GP is wearing... could be rose/mauve-y or maybe maroon?
