How To: The Nude Cappuccino Smokey Eye With Max Factor
Using the Max Factor Masterpiece Nudes Cappuccino Palette and Masterpiece MAX Mascara (*)
Dark, bold smokey eyes… some girls rock it but for me personally there’s just too much makeup involved and with my round shaped peepers it can leave me looking at little panda-esque.
So, this post is dedicated to lovers of a fresher, neutral smokey eye with cool tones.
I’ve been a fan of the Max Factor Masterpiece Nudes palettes ever since they were first released and I can say that the 03 Rose Nudes palette sits firmly in the top of my makeup drawer, ready to hand.
So when this little chocolate dusted cappuccino palette came through the post (alongside the Max Factor Masterpiece MAX mascara) I was thrilled! I already knew how rich and strongly pigmented the baked shades were. The multi-dimensional textures (matt, shimmer and sparkle) and velvet smooth feel makes them incredibly easy to blend and versatile enough to create multiple looks.
There are 8 cool shades in total that range from a natural light to a dark tone so you’re able to take your look from a fresh day time feel to a more glamorous night time look just by simply building the colour.
To create the look above, I simply used shade 2 across the lid, shade 3 under the brow bone and in the center of the lid and a mix of shade 6 and 7 in the crease of the socket. I then used a blending brush to give the smokey eye a more natural look before adding a dab of shade 3 (using the sponge applicator) within the center of the lid as a highlight.
To finish off the look I used a liquid liner to create a cat flick and added a couple coats of the Max Factor Masterpiece MAX Mascara... which is incredible by the way.
I’ve mentioned a few times that Max Factor never get it wrong when it comes to mascaras and every new one I try ends up becoming my favourite. Well… It’s happened again. The plastic wand takes enough products to coat each lash individually and deliver volumised bold lashes without having to build up the product. But what makes this mascara my new favourite is the size of the wand. The sleek shape makes it easy to coat your lashes without dispensing product across your eye lid or under your eyes.
This look would be great to add a little something to your usual everyday makeup
