 Hi dolls, it’s been quite awhile since my last post. That’s because I have been doing a lot of things, my son is on vacation from school and finding out time to blog is really slim to none. Am soooooo sorry for the break in transmission , I will try my best to post more often when the transition is complete and we are settled. So, today I decided to start a new makeup series titled VACATION MAKEUP SERIES  in which I will be showing you my makeup looks I did while on vaca with my family. I tried different looks and I tried my best to take pictures of them . So, today’s post is titled GREY SMOKES . During my vacation I didn’t take all my makeup essentials. I had to improvise and really I didn’t do any highlighting and contouring at all because I could only take a few thinks with me while on my travels but I did take the little I could. I didn’t even take my blush palette ‘ imagine’. I had to use my matte eye shadows as a substitute for blush and I tried my very very utmost best to achieve the looks I did. I assure you. 

The makeup look I did was a take on smokey eye but I didn’t want to do the regular black smokey eye or blue either which would have been inspired by my blue jean shirt. I wanted a different color that wasn’t dark and I decided to go with a kinda grayish color. I didn’t want to go the route of doing a nude lip which would have worked but I wanted a hint of color on my lips. I decided to use L.A. Girl Lip Glaze in Blushing and i blended the lip liner out. Then I applied lip gloss over it to give that shine I was looking for. 

Hope you like it and below is the details of the products used. Enjoy!

One more thing, I now have a business name called MARY’S BRUSHSTROKES with a new logo design . Hope you like it and very soon I may/ may not substitute MARY’S BRUSHSTROKES for MyBeautySignature. What do you guys think? Drop you thoughts in the comments section Thanks.
