Rainy Day Glam Up

Husband and I are bumming around the house in workout clothes and eating leftover chinese. This can only mean one thing… it’s a cloudy, rainy day. But, even when we aren’t feeling our best, sometimes, we women need a bit of a glam up to make ourselves have a more positive outlook; even if it’s just for a few moments.

love rainy days at home watching movies, snuggled in a big, fluffy blanket. But, just in case you are going out tonight,  this makeup look might work for you too!

These colors would work on many different skin tones and eye colors because most of them are shimmers and made stand-out from the complexion. I think this is a great, simplified smokey eye option for daytime in the fall and winter. Definitely not your, run-of-the-mill “let me run to the store” look but, if you want a bit of edge in your day-to-day then maybe this is the kind of thing to go for.

Products Used:

Smashbox Liner in Taupe- This is a great, creamy liner! I love the way it comes in the Smashbox Softbox palette because I like to use it as more of a paint pot. They have released new versions of this palette so, I’m not sure if the one in the link is still available. I put this all over my lid and also underneath my eye.

Revelon Illuminance Creme Shadow in Copper Canyon I’ve had these shadows for ages and I really couldn’t live without them! They glide on and blend seamlessly. For this look, I used the gold color from the palette. I used this all over the lid, on top of the taupe liner.

L’Oreal HiP Studio Secrets Professional Matte Shadow Duo in (917) Dashing– I really love the girly look of these shadows when applied together, however, I tend to mix the pink on with other colors because such a light shade kind of makes me look sick haha! For the eye makeup above I blended the black color into the crease and outer edge of my eye.

Smashbox Shadow in Truffle- This shadow is my favorite in the palette I mentioned above. I just hit pan on it and I am going to be heartbroken if I cannot replace the palette once I’ve gotten down to the nitty gritty on the others 😦 This color is still available HERE, however, it is described as a “matte taupe” and the one I have is more iridescent. Definitely swatch, if possible, before purchase! I used this in the inner corner to lighten up the brownish cast from the Revelon Creme Shadow.

Ulta  Eyeliner Pencil in Black/Brown (similar)- They have changed the design and function of this liner since I bought mine but, all-in-all, the staying power of this liner is great! I put is just on my waterline for added effect.

Maybelline Volum’ Express The Falsies Mascara in Blackest Black– After curling my eyelashes I applied this to the top and bottom. I really like this mascara for being a drugstore product. It does what it says it should. See my review, here.

If you try this look, please post a link to it in the comments! Have a great day! 🙂
