HowTo: Chikako Watanabe Smoky Eyes


*This is a scheduled post.*
I've never done a "celebrity inspired" look before, so I hope I did this justice? Chikako Watanabe is a ViVi Model, and I've always admired her amazing skin! She's one of the very few Japanese models I see that sport the sexy, bronze skin and smoky brown eyes. Her look is very simple, clean, yet seductive. Smoky bronze eyes, played down peachy-bronze cheeks and pinky-nude lips. I was looking through some of my make-up and found an inexpensive quad that can help you achieve this entire look. I added a gold eyeshadow as a blending and transition color, but you can definitely skip that if you'd like and just use the quad alone. I used Maybelline's Natural Smokes Quad for this look. The result.

DISCLAIMER! Of course Chikako's eyes and mine are NOTHING alike. I'm very aware of that, lol. My eyes are more round and slightly droop while hers are more of an almond shape. I like her eye make-up and just wanted to re-create it. That's all.

Sonia Kashuk Dramatically Defining Long Wear Gel Liner in 02 Cocoa (as base)
Maybelline Natural Smokes Quad
MAC Woodwinked Eye Shadow
Wet N' Wild Creme Liner in Black (for waterline)
Majolica Majorca Lash Gorgeous Wing
Marcelle Mascara

I hope you like the look! I have a few more "celebrity inspired" looks in mind and if you would like to see more of them, please let me know! Your feedback and comments mean a lot to me. Hope you all have an awesome week.

    Thanks! Its the only Maybelline quad I like, haha. I don't like nude lips either. I look like a dead cow, even when I use a rose colored gloss over, it just doesn't look right.
