Hope you all are happy and healthy.
While I was just going through my considerably large make-up collection which I have made over last couple of years, I found this beautiful pigment from MAC called Chocolate Brown. I have this pigment from a long time and didn't use it for like more than a year. I feel ashamed that I didn't use this pigment much as I used to love it so much. This pigment is so versatile that you can use it round the year, just pair an appropriate lipstick/ blush to suit the season. Anyways, I am happy that I could use it today to create a smokey eye look which is perfect for summers.
Chocolate Brown, Chocolate copper/ bronze, is a BEAUTIFUL shimmery rich brown shade with red / burgundy undertones. This is an absolute stunner shade. I feel like kicking my a** for not using it much for such a long time.
Here are few pictures and swatches of this beautiful pigment.
For today's look I have paired it with a coral blush and nude pink lips.
Here is the list of products used to create the look:
- Chanel Perfection Lumiere Foundation (review here)
- MAC Pro Longwear concealer in NC42
- MAC Studio Finish concealer in NC42
- MAC Mineralize Skin Finish Natural - Medium Dark Shade
- MAC Bronzer in Refined Golden
- Nars blush in Torrid (review here)
- Dior Powder Highlighter in Amber Diamond (review here)
- Urban Decay Primer Potion

- Urban Decay 24/7 eyeliner pencil in Zero, Inglot Kohl in Black (review here)
- Maybelline Th e Falsies Drama mascara

Here are a few simple steps to create this smokey eye look using Chocolate Brown Pigment
- After priming your lids, apply UD 24/7 Zero eye pencil on outer 2/3rd of upper lash line and smudge smudge and wing it out.
- Apply Texture e/s in the crease and blend it up to the brow bone
- Apply Handwritten eyeshadow in the outer V
- Apply Chocolate Brown pigment on the lid
- Apply Vanilla pigment in the tear duct and on the highest point of brow arch
- Finished it with black kohl in the water line and black mascara
Here are a few more pictures of the look and some close-up of eyes:
