You have a party to attend, the kids are refusing to sleep and the clock is ticking. You have to make sure the kids are fast asleep before you start slapping on the makeup on your face because God help you if either sees you getting ready and realises that Mom and Dad are going out without them!!! So, you’re short of time and you want to do a shimmery, smoky eye…reach out for the Lancôme Magic Voyage Travel Lip and Eye Palette and using just two eyeshadows, you get party ready. Don’t believe me? See it for yourself….
This is the Lancôme Magic Voyage Lip and Eye Palette that I had bought from Hong Kong (read about it here) and I used just the silver and the dark grey shadows to create this look. I love Lancôme eye shadows (like I do almost all other Lancôme makeup) because the texture is silky smooth, they have great pigmentation, almost zero fall out, last long and don’t crease. Whew! What’s not to love?
Step 1 – Apply the silver shadow all over the lid. Also add a thin line to the lower lash line.
Step 2 – Darken the outer corner and crease with the dark grey shadow. Go as dark as you dare. You’re in a hurry so there’s no time to do elaborate contouring etc.
The picture between 2 and 3 is what your eye will look like.
Step 3 – Line your eyes with whichever liner comes into your hands first. In my case, it happened to be Bourjois Smokey eye pencil in black which isn’t a very dark black. Thank God and your genes that you don’t need to tamper with your brows. Apply mascara and you’re done!!
Yes, the inner corners of the eyes aren’t well done and neither is the concealer but then, those things aren’t very noticeable in a night club, are they? Besides, there’s no fall out!!! And look at the sheen of the shadows.
With such a shimmery, smoky eye, the lips of course, need to be kept light and so I wore the peachy-beige Color Design lipstick from the palette. It is a beautiful MLBB (My Lips But Better) shade. Blush/bronzer are “If time permits” optionals.
Wear the lacy sequined top, the black ultra skinny denims that make you look 5 kgs thinner and killer heals and you’re ready to rock girl!
It took me less time to do this makeup than it did to write this post! I know this kind of shimmery, smoky eye makeup isn’t going to get you awards or get people raving, but hey, it is super quick, not messy (no fallout you see) and looks nice. And since I was in a hurry, I took quick pictures on the ipad in the yellow lights which is why there is this glare and my face looks a bit flat. The product pictures however, were taken the next day in daylight.
You can do this quick shimmery, smoky eye with any two eyeshadow colours. My personal favourites are the Lancôme ones and I’ve already told you why.
What do you think of this look?

lippies look lovely!! love the smokey look but i personally feel dark colors would compliment your eyes and skin tone… *-*
I love the look
Well, great minds do think alike you know 😉
I love Lancome eye shadows. Not just this palette, I have another mini palette which was actually a GWP but i bought it from strawberrynet (i bought two of those and one was the prize in my first giveaway) and the shadows in that are gorgeous too.
Oooh the magic palette has a more versatile set of eyeshadows than Absolu Voyage. Argh! But the lippies are more pigmented, I suppose, so can’t crib much. Coincidentally, we both ended up talking about Lancome’s Voyage palettes at the same time haha! (Make a wish)
