Balmain Paris

Hi my beautiful PL's! I hope you are having a wonderful Monday and ready for your dose of PinkLux! I was inspired by the Balmain Paris Fall photograph taken by Alexei Hay. I loved the dark green smoky eye it was different from the traditional black or brown smoky eye. Also, the nails were red with a gold french tip and this was different from the traditional white french tip. I loved the bold colors together. It can be toned down but of course I went bold like the original photo. I hope you enjoy my recreation. All items used will be listed below. 

::Original Look::

Step 1: Add eyeshadow primer.

 Step 2: Add eyeshadow base to lid. Make sure to blend out your base. Once base is blended apply eyeshadow.

Step 3: Add darker shadow in outer V area to give depth. (Make sure to clean up the edges.)

Step 4: Apply liner and mascara. The look is very smokie so it is up to you if you want to apply liner. 

Completed look! 

::Items Used::
Elf Cosmetics Mineral Eyeshadow Base
BH Cosmetics 88 Color Matte Palette
Elf Cosmetics Cream Liner (black)
Elf Cosmetics Eyeshadow Stick Like a Boss
L'Oreal Voluminous Dramatic Mascara
Maybelline Volum' Express The Falsies

I hope enjoyed! Please let me know how well I recreated below in the comments. 
Thank you! XOXO
