Trending – Navy smokey eye

by - January 26, 2012

I have never been one to really follow trends because;

1) I am obtuse when it comes to trends.  I am usually a day late and dollar short LOL Hello Naked Palette.

2) Most trends do not appeal to me; I have to gradually build up affection for it. IE: this new tangerine is IN thing. Tangerine is not for me, but by summer I bet I will find something I like J

But what I have noticed this past month is the new navy smokey eye. A twist on an old favorite. I love navy eyeshadow. Navy works well with my brown eyes.

Classic Navy smokey eye: I was inspired by a tutorial Lisa Eldridge did recently. Click here to view. Lisa is one of the best MUAs I have seen. She makes it look so easy. I have to give this look a try.

Navy with sparkle: Lea Michelle at the Golden Globes. When I first saw her look I thought it was a bit harsh for her but by the end of the show I liked it LOL. Especially with the nude lips. Nic of the Pixwoos has done a wonderful tutorial on Lea’s look. Click Here to view it. Very beautiful.

Gunmetal/blue with tightlined eyes: Emma Stone at the Golden Globes. Her look just jumped out at me. Loved it. Meredith Jessica of Pigments and Palettes did a great job recreating Emma’s look. Click here to view.

And here is my attempt. I sort of tried Emma Stone’s look but I didn’t go as bold as I was going to wear this out shopping. Although the pictures do not show the silver I used, I liked it. One day I will figure this darn camera out!

What are your thoughts on the navy smokey eye? Are you going to give a whirl?
