Cue fire emoji and Sean Kingston's "Fire Burnin'".
In this case, I'm referring to the fire brought by a solid smoky eye. Through experimenting with the smoky eye in many different varieties, I uncovered one of my favorite silver linings of being a bald woman- a focus on my eyes.
When playing with dark colors and vibrant eyeshadows, many makeup tutorials steer away from over-doing it as your eyes start to get lost in your face. However with a bald head, your eyes become the focal point of your face and a dramatic eye only adds to the wow-factor. All the more room to have fun with your eye makeup! Sign me up.
When I go for a more classic smoky eye (blacks, silvers and greys) my favorite palettes are a combination of the cult favorite, Urban Decay's "Naked Palette" and Tarte "Amazonian Clay Palette" (pictured above). For the brown & gold smoky look, I am a big fan of Too Faced "Natural Eyes". If I'm feeling a little more on the dramatic side and want to go with a more colorful look (omg Sammie you are so crazy!!), I have been loving Smashbox's "Cover Shot Palette" in Smoky.
For brushes- I typically stick to the brush that comes with the Urban Decay Naked Palette. However as a general rule of thumb, you'll want a fluffier shadow brush for the lighter colors you will use all-over, and a flatter more slender shadow brush for the darker colors that will be in the inner and outer corners of your eyes.
