Heavy Browns with Nars Galapagos and Mekong

Here's my first try at a smokey eye using my recent purchase, Galapagos. Definitely too dark and heavy for the daytime, but perfect for a night out!

Sorry I look a bit tired, this was taken when I got home!


Laura Mercier Foundation Primer
Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer & a little bit of the mineral powder
Laura Mercier Translucent Powder
Bobbi Brown Corrector
Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage Concealer
Mac Refined Golden Bronzer
Benefit Coralista

Mac Painterly Paint Pot
Stila Smudgepot in Bronze (i think this intensified the look and made the sparkles show up more. I'm going to try this look w/o it and see how different it looks!)
Mac Femme Fi & Soba
Nars Galapagos & Mekong
Bobbi Brown Gel Eyeliner in black ink
Covergirl Lashblast volume
Anastasia Brow Powder in brunette

Estee Lauder Coral Kiss (found at a CCO a few months ago, I think it was Limited Edition)
Mac Enchantress Lipglass

Thanks for looking!

  9. wow this look is stunning! what brushes do you use for each part? would be great if you could do a post on it. Very glad I found your blog, love your eye makeup looks!

  10. Thank you so much everyone, I really appreciate the sweet comments.

    @discovering beauty: I'm planning a tutorial for it soon! For the time being here's how I did it: first i applied mac painterly as my e/s base, then stila smudgepot in bronze all over the lid with my finger. then i took nars galapagos on a mac 239 and patted it on, concentrating the color to the center of the lid. then i used a mac 219 with nars mekong to define the outer-v and crease, and blended that out with a mac 217. next i took a fluffy blending brush with mac soba and blended the crease with the windshield wiper motion. Then i applied mac femme-fi to the browbone, liner, and 2 coats of covergirl lashblast!
