I have become obsessed with the TV Reality series 'Love and Hip Hop' I love everything about it.. From the shoes, the hip hop honeys and the cat fights! It has made me fall in love with Jim Jones who always looks like he's high.. he's so cute! My favourite character is Emily who plays rapper Fabolous' on/off girlfriend. I was watching a reunion show after the first season and I loved her (then) new look. To be honest the picture doest do her beauty justice, but if any of you have seen the reunion show then you will know how FAB (No pun intended!) and FIERCE she looked on it.
I loved the way in which she had such a smokey eye with a full fringe. So I decided to recreate it.. I tend not to bother to much with eyeshadow since the fringe, but this had me reaching for my dark palettes. You can't really see much of it as Emily's fringe is a lot shorter than mine but I really had fun blending my shadows again.
I used my two favourite eyeshadows by MAC 'Tempting' and 'Black Tied'. I just smoked them together then applied black tied along my lash line. I piled on heaps of mascara and it ended up being quite dramatic. My picture doesn't really do the eye make up justice, but I thought I'd upload it anyway.
Emily's eye make up is really heavy with a lot of emphasis on the lower lash line, the shape is quit catty and I like that!
