Makeup Monday- Jackie Sparrow

This post is pirate inspired, hence the goofy title. I actually wanted to name this post "Smelly Pirate Hooker", but felt like readers not getting the reference could be really dangerous... so I settled on something a little more PG. That way my mom doesn't have to freak out ;) 

This is a bit of a grungy smokey eye which is simple, totally imperfect and sexy in that "I don't give a #$^@" way. This look makes me feel like a rockstar, or an action hero or a... smelly pirate hooker. Oh yeah.

Do foundation and concealer as normal.

 Apply the gold shadow to your lid using a back and forth windshield wiper motion right up into your crease with a soft fluffy brush.

 Line your upper lid with a charcoal shadow- I find that black is a bit too harsh, and grey doesn't define as needed- look for something in between if you can. Sometimes it helps to slightly wet your liner brush when doing this step so the shadow doesn't go everywhere. Blend the line out softly with the fluffy brush.

Now line your under eye with the same charcoal shadow. Dip the liner brush in the gold shadow and trace over the same line. This will soften and blend it out a bit.

Apply a carbon black mascara to upper and lower lashes, and ditch the eyelash curler for this look.


 Take a shimmery bronzer and place it in the hollows of your cheeks and all the way up to the temple. Blend out, brushing in small circles until there are no lines visible.

 You can just put on a bit of chapstick, or apply a golden peachy gloss to your lips for the finishing touch.

and there you have it! That's all there is to the look- perfect for a quick date night look.

Hope you enjoyed, and hope you'll give this tutorial a try! If you do, I'd love to see :)
