Smashbox Metallic Eye Makeup Look with the Full Exposure palette

So I've been playing with the Smashbox Full Exposure palette again... And this time I've been attempting to recreate the look that makeup artist Janine Bird did on me last month at the photoshoot I blogged about here.

I absolutely loved this look and it pained me to take it off that night and to be honest, I was afraid to attempt to recreate it myself because what if I couldn't do it.  This was the makeup look that made me pose in front of Davis Factor and a wind machine like I was the Queen of feckin Sheba.  But I bit the bullet and used all of the tips and tricks that Janine's taught me over the past couple of years and voila!  Have a look see at the video below and I've posted some photos too for your viewing pleasure.  The green liner on the waterline is my favourite thing ever in life and teamed with this dark metallic eye, I know what eye makeup I'll be wearing every time I'm heading out!

It's a different take on the usual sexy smoky eye and takes mere minutes to do this yourself.

And look!  I did a little comparison photo of Janine's work and my attempt and it's not half bad!

This should be enough for you to see that if I can do this, anyone can, so play with the palette.  Go wild.  Do what I do and do your right eye one way and your left eye another, then forget about it and when the doorbell rings, you look demented, but you're happy because you've got all the makeup on.

Smashbox Full Exposure palette.  In The Ultimate Love with it.
