Makeup Tutorial: Nailing the Smokey Eye In Easy Steps!

By


I recently went out for a party in the evening with a couple of my friends and I just felt like going all glam, hence I decided to create a bold smokey eye look with a bold lip color as well.I felt really sexy and it complimented my attire very well.I used very easily available products.This was the first time I tried my hands on this kind of look and I absolutely loved it!





Decoding The Look.

  • I started with a primer, I used the Colorbar primer and its one my favorite primers.It just makes the application of my makeup so smooth and long lasting.
  • Then I went on with doing my eyes first, as I didn't want to create a mess on the face if there would be any fall outs of the eyeshadow.I used a concealer first and then set it with a little loose powder to get a perfect base for my eyeshadow.
  • To create this smokey look, i used the Makeup Revolution Redemption Palette Iconic 2, its a gorgeous palette with super beautiful nude shades.I picked up the black shade and nicely put it all over the eye area and blended it well, creating a soft wing as well. To this, I added a dark brown shade to get the look I wanted.The key to a good smokey eye effect look is lots and lots of blending.I wanted to keep it bold so I kept my eyeshadow dark.
  • I used the same brown shadow to my water line and skipped my kohl .I loved how the smokey effect on my water line turned out to be.
  • For my base, i used the LA Girl HD illuminating Foundation because I wanted a nice dewy finish and I also used the Maybelline Fit Me concealer to highlight the high points on my face
  • To set it all I used a compact powder by PAC cosmetics.
  • To add a nice color on my cheeks, I used the Freedom Pro Blush palette and softly put some pink blush, the highlighter was a must for me for this look, so I went ahead with my Savanna colors Bronzed Professional palette and used the Highlighting shade.
  • For the lips I wanted a sexy bold lip color, so I went ahead with the Matt Me lip liquid lip color in the shade, Rose Blossom, lately, i have been obsessing a lot over this lip shade as it looks so sexy and can compliment various skin tones.
So these are the products I have used and came out with this look, You could totally change the lip shade or reduce the pigmentation of the eye shadow as you like it.It wasn't a very difficult task to get the smokey eye! Do Try this look and am sure every girl can totally carry this one.

This is how the look turned out to be.
