It’s almost June, and you probably know someone getting married in the next month or two. If you’re looking for inspiration on how to do your makeup, here’s a look that I wore to a wedding last weekend. It’s enough to make your eyes pop without wearing making the eyes too heavy. The emphasis is on the smokey eye liner and the shape. I loved wearing this look, and it’s something that I’ll probably wear over and over again.

Get the Look
For the eyes, shade in the lid with a shimmery beige (MAC All That Glitters) and top off with a low shimmer peach (MAC Arena). Mix the shimmery beige (MAC All That Glitters) and peach (MAC Arena) to highlight the inner corner and inner half of the lower lash line. Highlight the brow bone with a shimmery champagne (Urban Decay Sin). Lightly contour the crease with a matte warm brown (MAC Soft Brown). Apply a matte medium taupe (MAC Coquette) to the outer corner to define the eye further.
Using a smudger brush, take a dark cool brown (MAC Brun) and smudge along the upper lash line and wing out on the outer corner. This creates a guide for the black eyeliner liner. Then, smudge using a creamy black liner (Giorgio Armani Waterproof Liner) over the cool brown to deepen it. Apply the black liner to the outer third of the lower lash line. Smudge and drag the liner to the middle, while making sure that the line tapers off at the middle. Line the top and bottom waterlines. Go over the black lines with a shimmery charcoal (Chanel Black Pearl from Ombres Perlées Palette). Apply mascara (Giorgio Armani Eyes To Kill). Optional, apply half false lashes to the outer corner (Ardell 120 Demi — cut in half; I used the shorter half because I have short lashes).
For the cheeks, dust a peachy bronzer (Dior Aurora Bronzer) over the high points of the face.
For the lips, apply a creamy nude lipstick (Vasanti Luxembourg).

Too Old To Party?!
My dear readers, how was your weekend? Mine was non-stop fun. From a Boyz II Men concert, to wine tasting, to an Indian wedding, I am totally pooped! It was fun though, but I’m starting to think that I’m getting too old to party.
