Smokey Eye Tutorial:

Tuesday, February 23rd, 2010


I am far from a professional, and don’t even think I do my make up that well, but I’ve been asked to show how I do my eye make up and create a smokey eye for when I go out. I decided to do a three step process to show how I do it.


Products I use:
Eyeliner: Stila Gel Smudge pots, it’s amazing because it stays on all night, never smudges and creates the perfect line.
The black and grey brush: Both from Sephora
Blush: Nars (Desire, Angelika, Orgasm) all good.
Eyeshadow: Nars(China Blue or Thunderball)
Blush Brush: Bobbi Brown
Mascara: Stila

Step 1: Clear face, no eye make up what so ever, a little blush.

Step 2: Draw a small line of eyeliner across on the top and lightly on the bottom

Step 3: Fill in your top eyelid with your choice of dark eyeshadow, and lightly smudge a bit of it underneath your eye as well. Apply mascara on top and bottom.

Results:

A smokey eye.
Also, if you want to go all out, go pick up a pair of fake eyelashes from you’re nearest CVS or Duane Reade (including the glue) and after you make the line of eyeliner put the eyelash over it and then do your eyeshadow. Don’t put the eyelash on right when you place the glue on it, count to ten and blow on the glue so it dries a little bit before you place it on your eye.

Hope this helps!
X,A

    make up looks absolutely amazing. what kind of eyeliner/eye shadow do you use? and how do you apply to the bottom? do you do it at the same time while your doing the top with your eye closed?

    underneath the picture of the make up explains everything i use. i do the bottom separately from when i do the top. first i make a thin straight line on the top, then i do a lighter thin line on the bottom, because you don't want it too dark on the bottom. then i take the eye shadow brush and smudge a little bit underneath the eyeliner on the bottom.

    A little late but question…Where did you get that makeup case from? The material looks perfect for cleaning off bronzer, unlike mine that is filthy!
