Smokey Eyes
Good evening & Hello new followers! ♥

I got inspired lately when I found a post from an acquaintance who is a huge Olsen twins fan and craved a whole post about their smokey eyes + red lips look that I wanted to do as well! :D Unfortunately I don't own any lipstick (have to change that soon. Lately I got interested in diving myself into the great lipstick mysterium..) but when there is something that I love in the wide range of make-up, then it'd be smokey eyes. I freaking LOVE smokey eyes, I survived my whole time as a teenager with them. I had very heavy eye make-up for every occasion for at least 3 years I think I just did everything with smokey eyes :D Back then it was only a huuuge splash of deep black on my lids. No highlight, no anything just black black blaaack. It couldn't be dark + deep enough when I was a teenager, lol. (I was a hell of a teenager, oh my. My poor mom.) 

To keep it short I still have a huge passion for smokey eyes and although my make-up isn't as heavy anymore as it was a few years ago it's still way more heavy than the average girl in my age. Think I copied that from my mom who always wears pretty bold make-up although she only sticks to green, gold + browns. I just think the more dramatic the eye make-up, the better! :D So I decided to dedicate that post to my passionate relationship for smokey eyes :3 I did a medium version with lots of silver + blue :) I absolutely couldn't decide which version I liked more so I included just both! 

To make this post at least a bit useful and worth of reading I collected my alltime favorite items for creating smokey eyes. I am a sucker for waterproof products; I am extremely paranoid and believe that my make-up is ruined everytime, lol. I am too lazy though to glimpse at a mirror all the time that's why I invest in the most waterproof items I can get! :D From mascara to eyeliner everything is waterproof - which led me to a problem as soon as I arrived in Japan because their removers cannot remove real waterproof make-up! -ieks!- Japanese "waterproof" products come off with warm water, I hate that. It's not waterproof when it comes off with warm water! I am too paranoid to use such stuff, I mean when it's warm I am sweating and then... exactly. That's why I imported my make-up remover from Germany for a whole year XD Call me insane but I just can't live with all my waterproof babies, harhar.

These are all products I insanely love and use mostly everday except for the eyeshdows. As you can see I have two different kinds of eyeliner; the Dip Eyeliner from Manhattan and the Gel Eyeliner from Maybelline Jade, I love both so much! They are really resistant and last the whole day without a single touch up even in Japanese rushhour! :D I use the dip eyeliner daily for my eyelid and the gel eyeliner as a kajal since it's the only black color that really lasts on my bottom lash line. (BTW I first was disappointed with the little amount you get when I purchased first but it's still alive after daily use for more than a year now o__O" I won't complain ever again!) I also use the Colossal Volum' Express Mascara for.... a lot of years now, I love it. It's perfect for my lashes, they stay curled all day and this baby is WATERPROOF LIKE HELL. I need to be careful with my own lashes when trying to remove this XD" I love that though ^__^" For smokey eyes I prefer purple shades along with silver for highlighting. I sometimes also use a deep dark blue to add a tad color to the black. I really love the BYS Animal Instincts Palette in Silver since they have a gorgeous medium metallic blue shade and two very deep grey/black shades. Altogether I am a great fan of Manhattan & Maybelline Jade, just for reference :) 

How about you, do you also have an insane relationship with a specific product or beauty style? Or is there anything you didn't dare to try until now? (Like me and the lipstick. I WILL GET LIPSTICK NEXT WEEK. Got one shortly after typing this post, will post about that soooon! :D)  I hope you enjoyed this post, let me know what y'all think! ♥

Ah btw I got a looooot of new followers (hello to everyone! ^-^ ) and I always said to myself I would do a giveaway if one hundred people would decide to read my blog -ieks!- Since it seems that I could hit that number in a near future, I wondered, what my readers would like to get from me, like what kind of items? Leave ideas in the comment and I see what I can do :D

See you next time!

oh, hello there. i'm yasuhiro mochizuki and i'm the cool kid who made this layout. i'd rather you not attempt to take this code and alter it or take this code, strip it down, and use it as a base code. if you really need a base code that badly, feel free to send me an email with what type of base code you need and we can talk about it. that said, i can't take credit for absolutely everything here. so here are all the dope resources i used here: all of the fonts used in this layout can be credited to google fonts save for calibri, which is a system font. the social media sidebar links were created using an icon font from we ♡ icon fonts. most scripts used can be found through a good google search, except for the script that gives the page it's tabs; i don't remember whether i hand coded that or if i found it through another blogger. if you're privy, you can find me predominantly on twitter and occasionally on my blog. toodles!
