Nancy Downs eye make-up is based on a very dark smokey eye-using black eyeshadow as I wanted to make this more of a 'wearable' look I took it down a shade by opting for browns and taupes. I first begin by applying the lightest shade from the palette all over the lid, as a base colour and to block out an uneven skin tones along my lid. I then began to apply the taupe brown shade all of my lid and begin to intensify the colour along the crease. To define the eye further I take the darkest brown colour (which also doubles up as a brow powder) and apply it my crease blending it slightly out towards the outer corner of my eye. I also added a light dusting of the "Champagne Pink" shade by adding it to the centre of my eye and blending the colour outwards, for a subtle hint of shimmer.
As I wanted to keep the lips as the statement look for the make-up I skipped eyeliner (which coming from an eyeliner addict was a strange step to take) and went in with lashings of mascara.
Now onto the lips, for this berry inspired colour I used two products to create this. I first lined my lips with the KIKO Lipliner in "515" which is becoming a new favourite lipliner of mine due to its intense pigmentation and striking deep berry colour, as well as how its incredibly smooth to apply. I then added the Max Factor Lipfinity in "17 Always Elegant" to the centre of my lips for subtle ombre effect, which again is an amazing lip product that is extremely pigmented and easy to apply.
So there you have it my take on one of my favourite characters make-up look.
