Gunmetal and Stilettos

Hi everyone!  My latest obsession has been the Urban Decay NAKED palette, so naturally I had to show a quick smoky look with a twist!  Pardon the blurry pic, it looked better in real life, I promise!  I was going out to dinner with the mister and my parents so I wanted something quick and easy.

  • I started off by using my beloved NYX eye shadow base in White.  
  • Virgin under the brow
  • Gunmetal all over the lid

  • Darkhorse in the crease

I thought about using Creep as a liner but changed my mind.  Instead I used Benefit Creaseless Cream eye shadow in Stiletto  a shimmery eggplant color.  Using a hard angle brush, I created a cat eye.  

I also lined my bottom lid with Stiletto and added some mascara.

Since I wanted the focus to be on my eyes I went with glossy, nude lips.  In this case, I paired Revlon Lip Butter in Creme Brulee, followed by Fusion Beauty LipFusion gloss in Goddess.

Have a fantastic day!

Let's get social!


  1. Gorgeous! But I did a double take on the names of some of the colors, lol

    1. Thanks, I'm surprised I've kept it like this so long. :)

  4. I like your choice of liner. The eggplant pairs exceptionally well with the gunmetal grey. Black would have been too boring.
