Fall Eye Look: Blue Smokey Eye!

Today's makeup look is inspired by Adore Me's perfect fall color combinations! 
Adore Me wants to know how you will be transitioning your makeup from summer to fall.
 They have created four makeup looks paired with some of their super pretty lingerie to give you some fall style & makeup inspiration. I've recreated one of the looks to show you how I would wear it! Keep reading to find out which look I chose, the products used to create the look, and which pieces of  Adore Me's fabulous lingerie I would pair with the look! 

I chose.....

Pairing #2! The Blue Smokey Eye!!

I chose this look because I wanted to try something out of my comfort zone! I do smokey eyes, but never a blue smokey eye. It may sound intimidating, if you're used to browns & bronzes like myself, but I think It came out very fun, but wearable.

For this look, I HIGHLY recommend doing the eye makeup first because it is very dark and you will get some fallout! 
The main product I will be using the Ciate London: Olivia Palermo palette. I chose this one because the shades are the epitome fall, in my opinion.
  • First I blended a mix of London & Blondie into the crease, extending it past the end of my eyebrow.
  • Next I start building up the shade Double Down onto the lid. I dampened my brush to make the color more intense. 
  • After building it up on the lid, I just blended it out from the lid into the crease. 
  • I kept repeating the last two steps till I got the intensity that I wanted. 
  • I cleaned up the edges of my eye shadow with a wetwipe to give it a sharper cleaner look.
  • I smudged a black eyeliner along my waterline, tightline, upper & lower lash lines.
  • I smoked out the lower lashline with a mix of London & Double Down AFTER I applied all of my face makeup, so that I didn't mess it up with concealer.
  • Lastly, I added a few coats of the Maybelline Lash Sensational Luscious mascara to my top & bottom lashes!
  • Maybelline Age Rewind Concealer
  • Sephora Microsmooth Baked Powder Foudation
  • M.A.C  Bronzer -Give Me Sun
  • Becca Blush -Pamplemousse 
  • Too Faced Candlelight Glow- Warm Glow
  • Maybelline Brow Precise Fiber Volumizer
  • Jane Iredale Just Kissed Lip & Cheek Stain- Forever Pink

What I'd pair my blue smokey eye with....

 I love Adore Me's website because they have such a huge variety. Besides lingerie, they also have some super cute rompers and pajama sets! Since I'm plus size, all of the styles I chose are from their plus section. They have an amazing variety of stylish, cute options for plus size women, which is really hard to come by. I've picked out a few flirtier styles & some super cute, comfy casual styles. They are all various shades of blue, to match the makeup, of course. (Plus, blue is my favorite color!)

Here are the flirty styles I chose!
