Bold Smokey Eyes

Today's look is a bold smokey eye. I know most of my looks are smokey eyes, but that's just because it's pretty much the only style that works on my eyes. If you have hooded lids then smokey eyes will be your best friend for life! I decided to show the look with three different lip colours; red, nude, & pink. I think it's really interesting to see how much difference a different lip colour can make.

When I first did this look the bright pink lipstick was my favourite, but then I found myself edging more towards the red. It just looks so fierce and bold! And Megan Fox-y for some reason. I think maybe I only think that because of how it looks with my dark hair, though. As always the nude was my least favourite. I will never be a nude lipstick kind of gal. Pale skin and nude lips are a no no for me.
