J-Lo Smokey-eye and nude lips!

Hi loves! What’s your favourite go-to make-up look for winter?? It has been gloomy and pouring rain for the past few days here in Vancouver so I decided to do a dark smokey-eye for last night’s dinner date with a girlfriend. This was my go-to make-up look when I was in my younger years. I rarely do the dark look anymore just because I tend to gravitate towards light and bright centres with more of a darker outer V or corner. But of course, sometimes you just gotta go with a dark smokey eye…especially in the middle of winter! I also filmed a quick tutorial on this eye shadow look which I will post up either on my Instagram or my Facebook 🙂





Hair: I curled my hair using the Numestyle Lustrum curling iron…the ONLY iron I use, which is fantastic! You can find it here. You can also buy the curling wands separately if you know you won’t be using all the different barrel sizes. Use code: Winter29 at check out to get any Magic curling wand for $29!!
