I'm also a fan of smokey eyes for a night out, though i do tend to go for a black smokey look - MAC Black Tied, Carbon, White Frost and plenty of Smolder kohl.

I would suggest maybe check out some of the Stila e/s as they are quite shimmery, and would look great on a night out.

I agree. When it comes to a night out, the smokey eye is a fool-proof way to look gorgeous! I like using MAC shadow in "Carbon" and eye kohl in "Smolder" or "Phone Number." To mix it up, try doing the smokey eye with different colors like deep purple (using "Trax" as a shadow and "Prunella" as the kohl), or even deep green (smudging "Rosemary and Thyme" kohl on the upper and lower lashlines). Keep the lips neutral-- my favorite lipglass for a dark smokey eye is MAC's "C-Thru."
Hope I helped

When I do a smokey green eye I use a combination of UD's Mildew, Urb, and Acid Rain.

Hmm... let's see... a smokey eye in gold could work well for you: try using "Amber Lights" shadow on your lid and and lower lashlines, and then retrace both upper and lower lashlines with "Teddy" eye kohl (a warm shimmery brown) or even deep gold liner in "Bountiful Brown" or "Handforged."

You can still use "C-Thru," but I remember flipping through a magazine, and saw that at one of Narciso Rodriguez's fashion shows, the models had gold smokey eyes with pale pink lips, and the combination was striking! For a light pinky gloss, try "Oyster Girl," "Nymphette," or even... "Prr" (although people either love or hate that last gloss).

Really Amber Lights is the only eyeshadow for a gold smokey?

Here are some of my favorite MAC shadows you could use on your eyelid, and on your lower lashlines: "Goldmine," "Casino," "Gorgeous Gold" (although this one is a little yellowish and sheer), "Amber Lights."

You can buff these shadows into your crease (just below your browbone) to add depth and dimension to your eye: "Bronze," "Sable," "Antiqued," or "Romp"... there are several others too-- you should be looking for a deep shimmery brown or dark bronze.

Line the upper and lower lashes with "Teddy" eye kohl, and smudge into lashlines with an angled eyeshadow brush.

Retrace the liner with one of the deep bronze shades that you would use in your crease for that added 'smokey' look (this shadow should match the eyeliner as much as possible).

Hope I helped!

Pink Blush: "Coygirl," "Tenderling" (my fav), or "Cheek" (there are many others too-- but don't go too bright!

Thanks Trisha,but I don't wear pink blushes I look terrible,maybe because I have pink undertones!I prefer peachy/brown shades!I look more healthy with these colors,I still don't know why!!!

Originally Posted by Trisha you can try and contrast with a cool pink as mentioned above.
you could go with a warmer rosy pink, or even a nude pink.

Personally i would wear something like Stila Praline with that kind of look, but the possibilities are endless, you arent limited to one colour!

It just gives me a subtle touch of color. You really don't need anything too noticable on your cheeks-- you already have a bright eye and pink-ish lip.
