Maribeth... How to do a dramatic lavender contoured smokey eye by: DARAIS

Everyone Meet Maribeth!!! I met this Beauty of the Week at Macy's Arrowhead in Phoenix Arizona. Was excited when she was open to try something new for an evening look! I chose a smokey contoured look. I wanted to incorporate a lavender shadow for Maribeth. Not only is it the hot eye shadow color for spring but also compliments her blond hair! Maribeth this looks amazing on you. Thanks for coming in and sharing this look with everyone!
Here is Maribeth with one eye applied only. AMAZING how big we can get the eye to look even while lining the eye on the inside! Everyone is going to want your lashes! Love that one coat of Hypnose Drama Mascara!

Products needed to achieve this lavender smokey contoured eye are:
Eye Shadow Base: Aquatique
Brushes: #8 eyelid, #13 Highlight and contour, #10 Liner set and smudger
Eye Shadows: Lavender Girl (Lid), Honeymoon (Highlight), Exhibition (Crease), The New Black (Outer Crease and set Liner)
Liners: Blanc Khol, Black Ebony Khol
Mascara: Hypnose Drama Excessive Black


Thanks my "too Sexy for Church" Maribeth! You are amazing. Can't wait to see you again soon!



  1. Hey Darais! Your videos are great, so keep them coming! I work out with Adrienne every morning, so I get to hear all of your fun stories. Love that girl!

    Adge and I promise we won't use the tester Make Up at Sephora in Vegas this year. Lapse in judgment last year. Whoops!

  2. Hey Darais, this is Maribeth's husband, Chris. Thanks for the amazing job you did! She looks awesome!

  3. SHAR!!! I LOVE THAT SISTER SO MUCH!!! I Love Sephora... just scared sometimes when testers don't get cleaned before an application! ha ha ha ... don't want something from the strip to end up in your eye! gross!

    CHRIS... you are a lucky guy! I am glad you approve and hope that you two enjoy each others beauty forever! Hope she didn't spend too much money... wives usually hide it in the car and bring it in in instalments... just saying! lol
