Lauren Reid ends the month with this smoky yet glowing makeup look that you can totally wear on a chic night out. Dare to be as fashion-forward and pull off a bold eye makeup with your favorite dark lippie!

Achieve this stunning makeup look by following these steps:

1) Work on your base by properly prepping your face with a primer. Why not give the ELLANA BLUR MAKEUP PRIMER, P599, a try to make sure your makeup doesn’t move, melt, or cake?

2) With a damp beauty sponge, use the PINK SUGAR OUR LIL’ SECRET FOUNDATION, P399, for a natural-looking matte finish that gives full coverage.

3) Look fresh and awake by concealing your under eyes with the MILANI RETOUCH + ERASE LIGHT-LIFTING CONCEALER, P700, and carefully blend it in to make sure it doesn’t crease.

4) Set everything in with the GLOSSIER WOWDER, P1,650, which is a non-dewy loose powder that cuts shine, blurs the appearance of pores, and does the job of setting your makeup in.

5) Get that contour on point by adding definition to your face with the CITY COLOR CONTOUR EFFECTS PALETTE, P400. Blend properly until you achieve a seamless shadow. You can use the highlighter from this palette to create that same gorgeous glow as Lauren’s. Don’t be afraid to play it up since according to Slo, the makeup artist behind this look, “I wanted to make sure everything was polished but not too done. Making the skin look fresh and glow-y was the key.”

6) Recreate the grungy smoke-y eye look with the PINK SUGAR EYE CANDY EYESHADOW PALETTE in Eye Candy 2, P699. Blend it well to create that smoke-y effect.

7) After using a lash curler, add volume to your lashes with the MAYBELLINE THE FALSIES PUSH UP ANGEL WATERPROOF MASCARA, P459, for an extra dramatic effect.

8) Lightly fill your brows with the GLOSSIER BOY BROW, P1,150, to make your brows look fuller.

9) Finish the look with a subtle metallic lippie using the COLOURPOP ULTRA METALLIC LIP in Man Eater, P480.
