Silver Smokey Eye Look with Hard Candy

I'm gonna start this off by saying that I have nothing to disclose at all. Everything was bought by me with my own money.

I've been pretty lax on uploading makeup posts lately and I really have no reason, why. I've been putting them on Instagram really, if I even do that. I've probably got 5 eye looks on my phone that I never uploaded and I've wanted to upload but I never took my Canon out to take pictures of them. Shame on me right? You can slap my hand later.

I've been wanting to do an all drugstore makeup look for a while now and a lot of the time, I do, do that with the exception of my primer. I've yet to find an eye shadow primer that is drugstore that works like the UDPP or TFSI. So, if you know of one, let me know. Thanks!

I bought this particular palette from Hard Candy, literally for one shadow. It was when Marsala was the craze at the beginning of the year and I went crazy buying palettes with a shade that was marsala or close enough to it...I've yet to actually really use the palettes so I went ahead and snagged this one because I knew it was CF and had a lot of shadows in it where I could pick.

So, out of all of the colors that are in it, why did I chose silver and grey? I did it to kind of match the SquareHue polishes from November 2015's box. Which is why this is going up after that post. See what I did there? :D Baaha. Okay, I'm sure you all are tired of looking at me typing, so I shall just get the pictures going and let you know everything that was used!

This is literally your basic of basic "smoky eye" that you can do really with a silver and a dark grey. This is kind of what the look was when I was in color guard, well not look it was the required makeup that we had to wear back when I knew NOTHING about makeup and now I regret not knowing because I could have rocked it.

Eye Primer
Hard Candy Raining Men Palette Silver  & Dark Grey
Jordana Cat Eye Liner - Black Leather
Shimmery brown shade from the same Hard Candy Palette for the lower lash line
L'Oreal Voluminous SuperStar Mascara in Very Black
Sephora Long Lasting Kohl Pencil ($10) Infinite Beige (waterline)

For my face I used the Rimmel Stay Matte Foundation in 201 Classic Beige
I also used the NYX Eyebrow Gel in Blonde for my brows.
That is it! I didn't so insane with the makeup or foundation like usual. Which, was nice..I do wish I would have set the foundation though because holy. bloody. heck. This settles into EVERY BLOODY LINE and just everything and it liked to stick and separate. It's just....a mess on my skin really so I am not a huge fan of this foundation. It's too thick in my opinion anyways. But it does serve it's purposes for pictures though I guess. :)
I hope that you all liked this look! I actually had a lot of fun creating it and remembering how I had no idea what my Color Guard Instructor was talking about when she said smoky eye and winged liner! Oh how far I have come!
