The Smokey Eye: Day and Evening Looks



M. wears barely any makeup in her everyday look. Surprisingly, she was interested in a smokey eye look for her upcoming wedding. I did a couple test looks on her, one of which fit the image she showed me as an example (it was a dark eye on Eva Longoria); the other was a daytime-appropriate smokey eye.

Here's my unfaltering opinion on wedding makeup: The bride should always look like herself but her best self. I was surprised by M.'s choice for her day, but I did a couple test looks so she could decide if she liked it.

I didn't get the makeup job, but it was fun doing the looks. M.'s reaction? She was overwhelmed by the amount of makeup in both looks - "It's so much makeup!" - but kept saying, "At least I like the lipstick color."
