Fierce Friday: Rock a Reverse Smoky Eye by Valente Frazier & IMAN Cosmetics for Samantha Black Fall 2012 Show



How do you get fierce for Friday night? Is it the usual smoky eye or red lip? Or do you try something different. We challenge you change it up—to try a look out of the norm for you.

A perfect choice is the look that was created by Valente Frazier for Samantha Black Fall 2012 Fashion Week in New York. Using a palette of IMAN Cosmetics, Frazier created a “reverse smoky eye” for the runway models. Not only was the smoky eye a reverse on placement (smoked out lower lash line) but also with color—using a jewel tone midnight blue shadow instead of traditional black and grey.

Frazier and troops of hair and makeup artists perfected his reverse smoky eye look using and arsenal of IMAN Cosmetics makeup. Backstage, Frazier shared that the look was a nod to “royalty” and the modern woman—both the collection and the makeup.

Here is how to get the Samantha Fall 2012 Reverse Smoky Eye Look:
(you can also substitute makeup from your personal makeup wardrobe)

Face:
Keep skin fresh and flawless by only using a minimal amount of cover-up or foundation.
Try: IMAN Cover cream used sparingly, only where needed.
Add a shimmery bronzer around the forehead and for contour.
Try: IMAN Clay Bronzer

Eyes:
The dramatic reverse smoky eye is the focus of the makeup, so this is where you pay meticulous attention to detail.
Line the waterline of the eye with Jet Black Liner and then apply Enigma Blue eyeshadow over the black liner and smudge.
