... beauty: EOTD - Experimental Smashbox

You know when you have something you don't want to do and so you put it off and try not to look at it?
Well that is what I have been doing with my Smashbox Shadow & Liner Trio in "Hot Date" that had somehow broken without me dropping it...... but not anymore!!!!! 

Inspired by my liner-as-shadow success in my green/gold EOTD, I decided to try the same sort of method with the Smashbox cream liner that is included in the trio. I am not particularly keen on these liners, I find that they disappear really easily, but using it this way has proved far more longwearing.

Here is the look:

Here is the palette:

Base: Very light application of Mally eyeshadow base
Lid: Pale colour from the palette
Socket/ top+bottom lashline: Cream liner with the purple eyeshadow blended over the top
Liner (top lashline): MUG Corrupt eyeshadow (intense black - love it!)
Waterline: MAC Smoulder
Mascara: Maybelline Full 'n' Soft Waterproof + L'oreal Lash Architect 4D

I really like how this turned out. It's a bit smokier in real life but I'm so pleased that i have found a way of using this trio, I will be trying it out with the Girls Night Out trio (that was part of the same kit) asap!!

Thanks for reading xx
