I ventured out to Coppers in Dublin and decided on a smokey eye. I tend to do this on all my nights out. No idea why. As I have mentioned before, I find one of the best parts of a night out is the actual getting ready part. I think it's a girl thing. Or maybe just a me thing.
I chose to use the Smokey Eyes palette from Sephora. This baby is in fact very very good. It's a nifty little palette which contains four colours and even an instruction booklet that tell you exactly how to don a smokey eye. The little tutorial is also quite informative, but I chose to mix and match and kind of do my own thing. No offence Sephora.
Obviously we Irish and UK girlies don't have a Sephora on our little islands, but it is considered the mothership in the US. Their own brand products are of good quality and are also quite a reasonable price.
The palette comes with a base, lid, contour and highlight colour, although as I said I mixed and matched and didn't follow the booklet, I thought it was very black and I wasn't feeling it. I used my Estée Lauder Stay in Place eyeshadow base as a primer, then I used the brown and black to kind of make a smokey amalgamation. I used the highlight under the brow bone. I also brought the black down under the lower lashline to round it off.

Palettes like this are great for nights out and are easy to transport. I may indeed use this alot more, the black is one of the blackest shadows I own!
