EOTD: Dior Smoky Crystal

Today's EOTD is a soft semi smokey eye using Dior's 5 Couleurs Iridescent eye shadow palette 089 Smoky Crystal, which is part of their fabulous holiday collection.

Products used:
MAC Select Cover Concealer NW 20
MAC Greasepaint Stick in Black (if you missed out on this, substitute a black waterproof eyeliner as a base)
Dior 5 Couleurs Iridescent palette in 089 Smoky Crystal
MAC Brow Shader in Walnut
Maybelline Great Lash Waterproof mascara in Very Black


Begin by applying concealer and setting with loose powder. Apply MAC's Greasepaint Stick to the eyelid up to the crease. Blend the edges well using your fingertip or a q-tip. Using a flat brush, apply shade #1 in the Dior palette to the outermost 1/3 of your eyelid, blend up to the crease. Apply shade #2 to the centre of your lid using the same brush, up to the crease, making sure to butt the colour right up to shade #1. Using a pencil brush, smudge shade #2 along your lower lash line to the center of your eye.

Using a pencil brush apply shade #3 to the inside 1/3 of the eyelid, working it half way onto shade #2 as well as lining the bottom lid from the inside corner to the center of the eye. Next using a fluffy crease brush, work shade #3 in the crease, blending both upwards towards the browbone and downwards into the darker shadows.  Use this brush to also blend out the whole eye using a windshield wiper motion.

Line upper lash line with MAC Graphblack Technakohl liner, curl lashes and apply mascara.  Voila! J
