Meet Me at Dusk | A Makeup Look

Finally, I got a little time to play in my makeup--this is my attempt at a smoky eye.  If I've done one before, I assure you it was an accident.  I think it came out pretty well but next time I think I'm going to try to go smokier.

Chief's work Christmas Party is coming up and I'm trying to plan my makeup (and I don't even know what I'm wearing yet *smh*).  I just want to be able to create the look that I want faster as it took me over 45 minutes just for makeup the last time we went out. 

To create this look it took only 38 minutes so I suppose it's an improvement.  I'm still a novice so if I can get this down to 25 minutes, I'll be a happy camper.

I found the accent lashes a little harder to apply as well because my own lashes are so darn curly they kept booting the accents off.  I will further work on my lash application.

Here's the look:
