First & foremost, I apologize for my shocking effort with blogging the past couple of months! I have been up to my eyes with a whole ton of college & personal stuff. BUT I am back now and determined to blog consistently from now on. I thought on my return I would show you how I achieve this super smokey blacked out eye that I use a whole lot, especially when I go out last minute and don’t have long to get ready (literally the worst thing in the world right?) The look is very dramatic and I think its great used on nights out and parties etc, but you can wear it absolutely any time you want, which is the best part about makeup. Okay so less of the nonsense this is how I achieved my look!
(TIP: I only put a little bit of foundation on at the start to even out the skin tone I also do this incase of any fall down, so I can just wipe it away easily and not feel guilty about wasting product!)
1: Next I fill in my eyebrows just so I can perfect the shape of my eyeshadow, I then took my Barry M eye pencil in white and used this under the brow to highlight, but you can use any white eyeshadow or pencil of your choice.
2:Next your going to want to take your bronzer of choice, I used sleek contour kit which is so affordable and great quality I blended this on the brow bone quite high and only used very little product to create a smooth application and if I needed more colour intensity I would add a little bit more at a time.
3: Grab any dark brown you have, I’m using MAC handwritten, keep your eye open and blend just at the crease of your eye. Don’t blend this fully into your warm brown as you still want to be able to see this colour, again, little product will do the trick for this, think of it as fading gradually into the warm brown instead of completely blended.
4: Take your black eye shadow I’m using a black from a rimmel palette which I love, pack this on the eyelid to create a super dark look. line your upper and lower lash line and waterline to make sure it is completely black out. I like to use a little bit of brown under my eye to keep the warmth.
5: Take a mascara of your choice or falsies stick them on, I usually then wipe down any fall out under my eyes and re apply my foundation/concelar. finish with your favorite bronzer and blush and your good to go!
What do you think? Would you ever wear this look? What are your smokey eye tips, I would luuurv to hear back! Lots & lots of love,
