LOOK: X-Factor Cheryl Cole Inspired - Smokey Brown Eyes with Pinky Nude Lips

Photobucket

I was watching the X-factor this weekend, and I was inspired to do this makeup look worn by Cheryl Cole on the Saturday show (Live Show 6). It's a different take on the smokey brown eye look: a thickened brown line on the lower lash line, winging out a bit. It's a great neutral smokey look that's easy to wear and definitely not over the top. I really liked this look on her, and I might say I like it on myself as well. I'm sure anyone can pull this off! :)

In this look I was able to use the Urban Decay Naked palette, MAC Bite of an Apple blush from the Venomous Villains collection, as well as The Faerie Glen lipstick from the recent MAC Tartan Tale collection. I hope you enjoy this look xx



I used:

EYES
MAC Soft Ochre paint pot
MAC eyeshadow in Mulled Cider (matte red-tinged brown, crease + lower lash line)
Urban Decay eyeshadows in Sidecar (shimmery taupe, lid), Virgin (pinky white with a sheen, highlight) from the Naked Palette
Urban Decay eyeliner pencil duo in Zero (black, upper lash line), Whiskey (bottom waterline)
MAC Lingering brow pencil
L'oreal Double Lash Extension with Serum Inside (primer) + Maybelline Colossal Volume Express 100% Black mascara

FACE
MAC Face & Body Foundation in C3
MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus in NC25
MAC Refined Golden bronzer (contour)
MAC Bite of an Apple blush (cheeks)
MAC Pearl cream colour base (highlight)

LIPS
MAC Naked Liner lip pencil (pink toned nude, line and fill)
MAC The Faerie Glen lipstick (pink toned nude)
MAC Double Dare cremesheen glass (reddish pink)

I hope you liked this. What do you think? Would you wear this look??

On another note, do any of you follow this year's X-Factor? I'm curious to know who you think will make it to top 3 ;)
