Makeup of the Night: Smokey Eyes and Bright Pink Lips!

Hey everyone!
I had another cheerleading competition and this time, I was asked by a lot of my teammates to do their makeup similar to mines! It was the first time I was asked by someone to do their makeup, and I was really nervous about messing it up, but I think it turned out alright! I wanted to share the look that I did on them and myself in this makeup of the night post! 

The girls did their own face makeup, but on myself, I used a little bit of bobbi brown creamy concealer to cover the blemishes and after doing the eye shadow, I applied more of the concealer under the eyes just to cover up any stray sparkles. I also used a little bit of a pearly highlighter on my cheekbones for some glow! 

First I primed the eyelids. Then I went into my Nude 'Tude Palette (I'll link my review on it here) and I took the color Silly (a deep brown base with silver sparkle) and patted it all over the lid. If you're going to re-create this, make sure to pat because if you use sweeping motions, you'll get lots of fallout! Then I took Sultry (a matte medium brown) and used it in the crease to warm up the eyes and to blend out the first shade. I think that this brings lots of warmth and dimension to the eyes and makes the whole eye look a lot better! Then to add more definition and depth, I mixed Silly (that first shade) and Serious (a matte black) and applied that to the outer V, also smoking it out a little bit. If you need to, take a blending brush to buff around the edges so you don't get any harsh lines. I also used Sassy (a metallic white) very lightly under the brow bones. To finish, I used a lot of black liner on the upper lashes. On the lower lashes I used a navy pencil liner because my uniform was blue and I thought it would be pretty, but if you recreate it, I'd use deep brown or black on the lower lashlines (smudge it out!) and waterline. I also used 2 coats of covergirl lashblast volume mascara on the upper lashes. 

I wanted to do a little bit of lipstick and I thought, "Why not go all out?" so I decided to forgo a nude and go for a bright pink! I used OCC Anime (I'll link my review here) on a lip brush and applied it. I chose this shade because I love the staying power of the lip tars especially during a 3 hour cheer competition, where I couldn't go to the bathroom to touch it up. I also used my Artistry lipgloss in Glitz (a medium, shimmery pink) over it just for some sheen. I'll link my review of that gloss here
