This look is a bit of a before and after look. I went to IMATS Toronto with this look, apart from the lip colour. When I got home and tried on one of the OCC Lip Tars I bought - Divine - I loved how it looked all together, so I thought I'd photograph it for you.
Basically, it's a soft smokey eye (one of my favourite looks), soft blush and a lip colour with a soft pop of colour. Wow, an OCC Lip Tar can be soft and wearable like this? Who knew?!
My base was my usual base - Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer, MAC Studio Fix Concealer and Bare Escentuals Mineral Veil to set it.

On my eyes I applied a purpley-brown from a Sally Hanson Carmindy palette. I blended it all over the lid and slightly above the crease, softening it out as it got higher.

I smudged Club along my lower lashline as well, more heavily at the outside of my eye and soft towards the inner corner.

To further smoke up my eyes, I applied MAC Technakohl Liner in Greyprint on my waterline. Using a grey on the waterline gives a much softer effect and the Technakohl liners are great for being less irritating to the eyes and long-lasting.

I applied a coat of Divine and then blotted it with a tissue. I didn't use a lip pencil, but you can if you have trouble applying this. You need to be careful, use a brush and start with a little and add more as you need. A very little of OCC Lip Tar goes a long way.
This is great for a slightly-more-than-subtle day look but still smoky and sultry.
