My Favorite Look This Week #2

This week, my favorite look was a quick and simple (not to mention brushless), messy, smudgy, slept-in smokey eye. And no, I don't mean literally.

Using only fingers, I applied MAC Constructivist Paint Pot all over the lid, messily applied then smudged a rich black pencil liner (Urban Decay Perversion, in my case) into my upper lash line, and finished off with Milani Brown Deluxe smudged into my bottom lash line.

Best part about this look? No need to carefully apply mascara because any mascara that inadvertently ends up on the lid blends right into the smudged black liner anyway, so I just quickly (and rather carelessly) slicked on two generous coats :)

Hourglass Immaculate Foundation in Shell
MAC Paint Pot in Constructivist
UD 24/7 Liner in Perversion
Milani Shadow Eyez in Brown Deluxe
NARS Bronzer in Laguna
Rouge Bunny Rouge Blush in Gracilis
MAC Lipstick in Flamingo


I finished off the look with quite a bit of bronzer, a pinch of blush, and a swipe of cheery pink on my lips. Had my look not been tailored to be more work appropriate, I would have preferred to smudge black liner on my lower lash line instead to really maximize the slept-in appeal, and then swap out the pink lip for one of the nude variety to balance out the heavier eyes. 

Either way, I love how quick it is to create this slept-in smokey eye, how impossible it is to mess it up, and how once it's on, it does. not. budge.

What was your favorite look this week?

  1. I did something just like this two days ago with Maybelline Bad to the Bronze and the Rimmel kohl kajal pencils and wondered if it was a bit messy but kept it on- glad I'm not the only one who doesn't think this way! Flamingo looks beautiful on you! It's such a flattering pink on your skin tone. The RBR Gracilis blush is starting to look well-loved!

  7. LOVE this. The coppery Milani pencil is so eye-brightening yet still gives a little bit of definition on the lower lash line... so pretty

  11. such a pretty look! love how even mascara smudges can mess this one up. lol

  12. Constructivist has to be my favourite paint pot ever. However, it dried up rather quickly (together with other paint pots) so I never bought them again. For cream shadows, Bobbi Brown (while expensive) lasts a long time without drying.
    This is a look I go to all the time! I use one brownish taupe eye shadow on top of smudged black liner and mascara :-)

  13. I love quick and easy looks like this. I love applying any darker shade of the Maybelline Color Tattoos (especially the LE fall ones) all over the lid and crease, smudging some creamy black eyeliner, then mascara just like you. I love doing that before work when I wake up too late!

  14. Love Perversion for Smudging! Such a cracking eyeliner!

  15. Woah, LOVE what you did with the eyes! I've done this look before, but kind of forgot how flattering it is, especially since I don't have much of a crease! Thanks for the inspiration Tiffany!!

  16. You are a glowing beauty! I must get my hands on Gracilis, it's such a gorgeous shade!

  17. Love the quick effortless look, Tiffany! Did you use your finger to blend out the pencil liner? Flamingo looks brighter in the tube, but I love the color on you.

    Now if only I am as talented as you are when applying make-up. =)

  18. Thanks, Cherie! I love Bad to the Bronze too! I've been using that and Constructivist a lot lately :) I kind of like the slightly messy look....just as long as the eyeliner isn't smeared all over the place! Lol. And yes, Gracilis only took a few uses before the imprint really started to wear down quite a bit. It's definitely well loved!

  19. Yay! How do you like it so far?

  20. Thank you, Claire! Back in the day, I used to be all about using color on my eyes (mainly purple), but I've become a much bigger fan of neutrals too in recent years :)

  21. Thank you, Sunny! Yes, Flamingo would look lovely on you!

  22. Let me know how it goes, Jackie! I've worn this exact look a few times now...I just really love how smokey the smudged liner looks! That's my favorite part, haha ;)

  24. Thank you, Catherine :) I absolutely LOVE that Milani pencil SO MUCH. It's definitely a drugstore gem!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Thank you! And yes, I'm terrible with my mascara, haha....there's always some that ends up on my lid somewhere! Yikes!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Yeah, I know what you mean. My pot of Constructivist was actually on the drier side even when I first got it. It doesn't blend quite as easily as some of my other paint pots, but I just love the color so much that I still make it work! Haha. I should try the BB ones sometime...I've heard good things! Which brownish taupe do you use? I love those kinds of shades!
