The New Smoky.

A cool take on smoky eyes.

Like many others this past Sunday, I got to watch and enjoy this year’s Billboard Music Awards. Award shows like the Billboard Music Awards, the Grammys, the Golden Globes, etc. are extremely exciting for me not only because I usually get to be part of them but also because I get to see the amazing works of other makeup artists. My top picks for Billboards this year include makeup looks of Selena Gomez, Hayden Panettiere, and Carly Rae Jepsen. In fact, it is Carly Rae Jepsen’s burgundy smoky eyes that inspired me to write this post!

I absolutely love using a burgundy shadow to create a smoky eye look especially to bring out the blue or the green in one’s eyes. Good colors to try for this look are:

Urban Decay’s Deep Burgundy Metallic Brown

If you have blue or green eyes, don’t be afraid to try brighter burgundies with a lot of red pigment in them. Brown-eyed beauties, you can rock this look too by picking darker burgundies with a more brown, copper tints. Try Makeup Forever’s Eyeshadow in Diamond Burgundy 311.

Rock a new smoky look tonight and face the beauty!
