Smokey Eye & Nude Lip

Doetzen Kroes by Ellen von Unwerth for Style magazine
I've long been a fan of this look and never get sick of it - a smokey eye and nude lip. My Nude Dude & Smoke gets in your Eyes posts are among my most read. I saw this picture (below) on Charlotte Tilbury's website recently and was inspired to write a new blog with some new inspirations & product recommendations for this look. I'd love to try Charlotte's range - as Kate Moss's long time makeup artist, she is a maestro at the rock chick look.

"As a Rock Chick...Your look is defined by a sexy Feline eye, smokiness, and lashings of mascara finished off with the perfect nude lip. Inspired by the sex kitten ways of Brigitte Bardot, the rock 'n' roll attitude of Debbie Harry and the style of Kate Moss, your irreverent attitude is all you need to accessorize your look." Charlotte Tilbury

Loving this shoot by Ellen von Unwerth for The Daily Telegraph UK's Style magazine. “I love to do smoky eyes, and I think that works best without too much of a lip colour,” says Doutzen Kroes, a L’Oréal Paris spokesmodel and one of the faces of the Colour Riche Collection Privée lipstick range of nudes. “There’s still a bit of a pinkish tone in there,” she says of her own shade, Colour Riche Collection Privée lipstick in Doutzen Kroes: Barely Pink.

Below Charlotte has worked her magic on Suki Waterhouse, Cara Delevingne, Sienna Miller, Naomi Campbell & Kate Moss for Kate's Topshop 2014 range launch party, choosing a smokey eye and nude lip for all.

“I wanted to bring out Sienna’s beautiful blue eyes by using the golden bronze shades from The Golden Goddess eye-shadow palette, inspired by vintage icons like Raquel Welch and Bo Derek," said Tilbury, who blended the powder shadows in a soft haze all around Miller's eyes. "The tones also beautifully complemented her gorgeous beaded dress from Kate’s collection. Then we contoured the cheekbones for a fresh sun-kissed look and played down the lips with a creamy nude lipstick." From

As for Cara, she wanted dramatic smoky eyes to give her look a glamorous, rocker-chic vibe," says Tilbury. In addition to layers and layers of black and charcoal shades from Tilbury's Rock Chic Palette, Delevingne's eyes were also lined with black pencil that was extended past the outer corners in a feline shape. A touch of silver shimmer at the inner corners (also from the Rock Chic Palette) made her eyes look truly mesmerizing." From
I must admit, Kim Kardashian's 'Glam Squad' are also adept at a fabulous smokey eye/nude lip look. Kim K has a covetable collection of nude lipstick shades.

The current products I'm using for this look are as follows. With a toddler and one on the way, I try to minimise prep time as much as possible so lately it's just a good lippie, eye liner & lashings of mascara. After trying many more expensive designer brands, I still swear by good old Maybelline mascaras, they really are top notch. However, I don't really rate Maybelline's Great Lash, I find it gives me quite a fine lash. I prefer thick and long Bambi-like lashes. Maybelline's The Falsies, Colossal and Mega Plush Volume ranges work well. If I'm in a rush out the door, it's just lashings of mascara, Paw Paw ointment on lips and a brow! Paw Paw ointment or Blistex blended with lipliner creates a great quick glossy lip.Combining the classic MAC spice lipliner with Blistex was my go-to in the 90's! Then I read Pat McGrath did the same for Gucci.
Living Nature Lipstick in Precious, a perfect shell-pink nude
MAC Spice lip liner - a classic warm nude
MAC Dervish lip liner - a dusty nudey pink
Paw Paw Ointment for a thick glossy conditioning shine on lips
Maybelline Mega Plush Volum Express mascara for super fat lashes
 MAC Teddy eye-liner - a warm slightly pearly dark brown with a soft silky consistency
MAC Smolder eye-liner - a perfect smokey smudgable black with a soft silky consistency
Benefit Badgal eye-liner - the perfect thick inky consistency that stays put
Benefit Instant Brow in Deep - a soft pencil that glides on and turns to powder

Here are some more top pics for rocking this look.
