Pair sultry eyes with a shimmering nude lip for an out-of-this-world look.

First of all, thank you for all the love in the comments section last week for my new 'do! You guys are super sweet (which is probably one reason we’re up for an award for best community!). 

Every week I think it couldn’t possibly be harder to pick my favorite snaps of you, and last week was no exception. Here are three looks that I'm loving:

The third look ended up being this week’s inspiration. Thanks Courtney W. for being my muse.

I dub thee smoky-eyed space babe.

I was totally loving the smoky eye and frosted lip Courtney was rocking, so I adapted my own version to share with you guys this week.

Eyes

To start, I smudged a little bit of Maybelline Eye Studio Color Tattoo 24HR Cream Gel Shadow in Bad to the Bronze all over my mobile lid for a little bit of metallic sheen.

Next I applied L’Oreal Infallible 24 HR Eye Shadow in Bottomless Java to the crease, extending the shadow to just below the brow bone, blending it out with my trusty blending brush. I even softly dusted some over the lid.

Then I added more Bad to the Bronze along the inner third of my mobile lid.

I finished by drawing an extended wing with my Jordana Incolor Fabuliner Liquid Eyeliner pen on the upper lash line, adding a couple coats of L’Oreal Voluminous Butterfly Mascara, and filling in my brows.

I like a brownish smoky eye because it’s dramatic without being too dark.

Lips

For lips I used NYX Wicked Lippie in Power, a metallic rose, and topped it with NYX Wicked Lippie in the silvery Stone Cold to add more frost.

Take me to your leader.
