Make-up Monday || MUA Smokin Palette || Anglina Jolie BAFTAs inspired

Hey Beauties...
I'm back this week with another affordable 'Drugstore' make-up look for you today. As most of us will know on the 16th feb, the BAFTA awards were taking place. I decided to base this weeks look on the much talked about Angelina Jolie, who made it into the "best-dressed Celebrities on the red carpet' sporting a Saint Laurent Tuxedo. Her make-up was simple yet stunning and suited her perfectly.

For the face I decided to use my Mabilline BB Cream in Medium, to create a nice dewy look with minimal coverage. For the eyes I used MUA Smokin' Palette.

1. To start with after priming my eyes I applied 'Ghost' all over the lid blending into the crease.
2. Then I went in with a fluffy brush and blended 'Fantasy' in the crease to begin a smoky eye.
3. Using a pencil brush I mixed 'Wicked' and 'Mythical' together and applied it to the outer corners and the crease creating a 'V' shape and blending it out slightly.

4. Using a liner brush I applied 'Broken' along to upper last line creating quite a thick line. Also lining my lower lash line aswell.
5. to finish I then went over 'Broken' on my upper lash line with the eye liner pencil that came with the palette, and lined half of my lower lash line and blended it out slightly.
Finishing by applying my favourite mascara, or you can apply false lashes if you wish.

For the lips I decided to go with MAC Shy Girl as that is the only nude I currently own. 

I hope you like this look, I tried to recreate the look the best I could using affordable products. I would love to know your thoughts on this look!
