Starlooks Smokey Eye Palatte

A few weeks ago I received the Casa Blanca 5 Shade Shadow Palatte from Starlooks in my first Fab Fit Fun box. I’ve used a few colors here and there but today I wanted to show do a look inspired by it. You can find more information on the products used below.

The Key Products for this look are:

Benefit Cosmetics Sunbeam – $26. Benefit recommends this highlighter for medium to dark skin tones, but I like using it when I want a bronzer high light. The product description from Benefit:

This golden bronze highlighter gives you a natural, sunkissed radiance. Dot & blend over makeup on to cheek & brow bones for a bronzed glow that complements all skintones. It’s liquid sunshine in a bottle!

Starlooks 5 Shade Shadow Palatte in Casa Blanca – $41. I find myself gravitating towards the two lighter shades of this palatte for everyday use, but I think the rest of the colors make for a fun smokey eye look.

Julep Kajal Dual Ended Eyeliner – $22. I received this in my Julep Maven subscription and I LOVE it. I love that it is dual ended, so while I used the black for this look , I like using brown for a less harsh look.

Buxom Full On Lip Polish in Amber – $19. I’ve had this lip gloss for a while now and I always default to it. I love the tingle that all Buxom lip glosses have and the color of this one is perfect for a nice glossy lip with just the right amount of color to accent the look without taking the focus away from the eyes.

Please excuse the terrible lighting for this picture, it is dark outside by the time I leave work and I really wanted to do this tutorial today instead of waiting for the weekend to have some natural light.

Love, Zsanika
