Tutorial: Smokey Eyes with MAC Sparkle, Neely Sparkle!

I initially wanted to get only one eyeshadow (Jealousy Wakes) from the Blogger’s Obsessions collection. But my impulse purchase of SNS! expanded my haul. How could this have happened to a makeup minimalist like me? *looks innocent*

I put together a great fall look using SNS!

Start with a light beige eyelid primer (UD Eden). Apply SNS! all over the lid using a fluffy brush.

Use a crease brush to apply a shimmery red-brown e/s (Milani Rich Java) to the crease. Be sure to add some more to the socket and just under the browbone. We want a very smokey look.

Tap a matte red-brown e/s (Sephora Mat No. 03) into the outer v and crease. Blend, but not too harshly. We still want to see the gradation.

Apply a kajal liner (or any gel or kohl liner) to the upper & lower lashlines and smudge it a little on the lower lashline (Lakme Kajal). Apply a metallic beige-brown e/s (NYX Chrome in Seclude) to the inner 1/3 of the lower lashline and browbone.

Finish with a squeeze of the eyelash curler and 2-3 coats of black mascara.

Sideways glance:

For the lips I used my new Sonoran Rain lipglass. It looks more red in person.

This is definitely more of a fall look! How do you guys wear Sparkle, Neely Sparkle!
