Drugstore Look: Burgundy Smokey Eye

Sunday, September 13, 2015

Fall is just around the corner and I am prepping my eyes for deep browns, burgundies, and shades of purple! Most of my makeup looks contain high-end brands, so for this post I wanted to show you how you can get a gorgeous smokey eye look for fall on a drugstore price. This is the perfect look because it can be worn for any occasion, casual or dressy. 

To preface this post, I wanted to thank the Meijer Style team for generously sending me all these makeup products (and a few other as well)! And WARNING: Because this look is SMOKED OUT there are quite a few steps...so bear with me!


Here's what you'll need for this look:

L'Oreal Liquid Glow Illuminator 
COVERGIRL The Super Sizer Mascara
COVERGIRL Outlast Lipstick in Magnetic Mauve (#945)
Revlon Colorstay Eyeshadow Palette in Free Spirit (#580)
Maybelline The Blushes Nudes Eyeshadow Palette


After you apply your normal foundation, concealer, bronzer and blush, prime your eyes with your favorite eyelid primer.  Then follow these steps:

1. Blend light grey shade from the Revlon palette (sorry, they don't have names on the packages!) and blend it out all over the lid. 

2. Take the golden brown shimmer shade from the Maybelline palette (very right top shade, again so sorry - they don't name their colors!) and blend that into the crease.

3. Take the cranberry shade from the Maybelline palette (fifth on the bottom row) and packed that all over my eyelid. 

4. Take an eyeshadow brush without any eyeshadow and blended everything out to create a nice ombre effect. 

5. Go in with the dark brown shimmer shade from the Maybelline palette (second on the bottom row) and blended that into the bottom half of my crease. 

6. Take the cranberry dark brown shimmer shade (last on the bottom) and add that to the outer corner of your eyelid to add dimension. 

7. Use the white shimmer shade from the Maybelline palette to highlight the inner corner of your eye.

8. Take that same cranberry dark brown shimmer shade and line your lower lash line. Then blend it out with that first grey shade we used in Step 1. 

9. After you go in with your favorite brow pencil and liquid eyeliner, top it off with COVERGIRL's The Super Sizer Mascara.

10. Take a small amount of the L'Oreal Liquid Glow Illuminator and dab it under the brow bone. 

The end result should look something like this:


Last step is to apply COVERGIRL's Outlast Lipstick in Magnetic Mauve lipstick and the look is complete!


If you're interested in any of the products I've used in this look, head to your local Meijer store between September 13th thru the 20th during their huge beauty sale. Nothing better than getting a gorgeous look at a fraction of the cost!

Stay beautiful!
