Smoke me out!

So this tutorial must be one of the easiest ways to get a brown smokey eye that’s out there. Even though it’s so simple, it looks amazing on so many people, and I love it. It’s the first type of dark smokey eye that I’ve been able to pull of, and I like it. I’ll list the steps and products

The first thing I did was to apply my Urban Decay Primer Potion all over my lids, and then I took my NYX jumbo eyeshadow pencil in Blackbean on my lid and in my crease leaving the browbone area clear. The blackbean pencil is a matte black base, and apply it by dabbing it on the lid and blend it out evenly either with you fingers or a blending brush. Then I applied MAC’s eyeshadow in Satin Taupe all over the lid. I also used the jumbo eyeshadow pencil in milk as a base for my browbone highlight.

 

So far it will look very messy, and I recommend having a towel or a tissue near by. Then I simply applied MAC’s eyeshadow in Vanilla to my browbone and Carbon in my crease so smoke the look out a bit.

 

Then all you do is to repeat the steps on your lower lashline, apply some dipliner and mascara and your good to go. You could also used a bright coloured eyeshadow/liner to make a poop of colour on your lower lashline, but I went the easy way, haha.

 

Now you’ll just have to do the rest of your face makeup. I chose to do a light coral lip. I used my mac lipliner in naked to create an even base for my lipstick, and then took my Este Lauder lipstick in number 7. And I was done, I hope you guys enjoyed this super simple brown smokey eye and let me know if you’d like more tutorials of this kind?

Silver Bullet

So when I came home from school today, I ignored my homework and sat down with my makeup collection. And I wanted to do something different.So I decided that I’m going to do a sparkle me up series, with different colours and glitters and ways to use them. I just placed an order with glamour doll eyes, and have some glitters coming my way. So this is going to be the simple silver holographic sparkle. Really pretty, and easily used when your going out without looking like a disco-ball. So I’ll show you pictures of the products and the finished look. Hope you guys enjoy!

The first thing I did was to prime my eyes with urban decay primer potion and NYX jumbo eyeshadow pencil in milk all over my eyelids, and up to the brow bone.

Then I moved on to eyeshadow. I wanted to use a matte white highlight considering the fact that I was going to put glitter all over my lids, so I used MAC’s eyeshadow in Gesso under my brow bone and in the inner tear duct to give my eyes the move awakened look. And I also used my GOSH quad in smokey eyes. I used the light grey on the inner part of my lid and the darker one on the rest. After applying my lid colours, I went on to the crease. I wanted to make it dark and took MAC’s eyeshadow in Carbon and worked it into my crease.

Now the fun part begins. I used HOT makeups HOT mixing glitter. This product has to steps, but I only used step number 1, which is the glue. It kinda look like a mixture between milk and water, I know, gross explanation. But anyway, I put this all over the eyelid and then I applied the glitter. I used one by GOSH the Powder effect in 09 Holographic Silver, which is a silver with rainbow sparkles. The important step here is to apply when the glue is still wet (da-ah) or it won’t stick.

After that I just applied some liquid liner, and pencil liner to my waterline, as well as mascara and false lashes.

And this is the finished look. (The lighting is washing out the colours, they were much more vibrant in real life. Also the first picture is taken with a blitz and the rest was without)
