Makeup of the Night: Smokey Plum

Hey everyone!
So I tweeted about my makeup last night and I asked if you would still like to see my makeup even though the lighting was weird and most of you guys said yes! Also, make sure to follow me on twitter for some random ramblings and updates! It's @a_modern_girl
So I'm really sorry about the lighting in these pictures, but its the best that I could do...

I used a sample of the Urban Decay Naked foundation. It gave light to medium coverage and it perfected my skin. I set it with a Physicians formula powder. Then I used Benefit's coralista blush on my cheeks and a little bit of a clinique bronzer to contour. 
I primed my eyelids. Then I used a black base on my lids to help make the look even smokier. I took a shimmery lilac all over the lid and a medium plum shade on the inner and outer corners as well as through the crease. Then I took a black with red shimmer and did a heavy outer V, smudging and smoking it out. I took that same black shade under my lower lashline as well. I highlighted with a shimmery cream color and applied that to my inner tearduct area too! I finished with a thick line of black liner and I layered 3 coats of mascara. I also lined my bottom waterline with a black liner. 
I just used a shimmery nude lipgloss, but I was eating at the party and didn't reapply so in this picture theres not much on there!

So this was my makeup of the night! Once again, so sorry about the horrible pictures! If you like these types of posts, subscribe! And leave a comment below letting me know what colors you like using in smokey eyes!
