Smokey Eye Makeup Tutorial

So, the first makeup tutorial that I had done a few weeks back got great response so I went ahead and made another tutorial post for you guys which is my another favorite....Smokey eye makeup! It's really really easy and hardly takes more than 10 mins to do, great for parties, dinners or any evening event and I am sure it looks good on everyone!! So, let's get started!!

Products used - 
- ELF Mineral Eyeshadow Primer
- MAC carbon e/s 
- MAC swiss chocolate e/s
- ELF Lash & Brow Clear Mascara
- Maybelline Colossal Volume Mascara
- Lancome Definicils Waterproof Mascara
- Bobbi Brown Gel Liner "Black Ink"

Tools used - 
- QVS Slanted Brush
- Ambika Pillai Applicator Brush
- ELF Blending Eye Brush
- Ambika Pillai Blending Brush
- Ambika Pillai Precision Brush
- QVS Eyelash Curler
- Vega Eye Groomer Brush

Now, I have already done STEP 1 & 2 which means I have primed my lids and groomed my brows.But if you guys wanna see the pictures of these steps, click HERE for the previous post.

STEP 3 -
Take any gel liner (if you don't have one, you can use your pencil liner as well, but liquid liner won't work well here) and apply it on your lids till the crease line. It might look crazy and all over the place but it will clear up, I promise. You don't have to be neat in the application, just slap on the liner.

STEP 4 - 
Now, using your ring finger spread the liner evenly and slightly smudge it around the edges.

STEP 5 - 
Take a fluffy brush and pick up some brown eye shadow and apply it right over the edge of the liner smudge you have created.Apply plenty of the shadow and hide the black rough edge.

STEP 6 - 
Using the same brush, blend out the brown shadow making sure the black underneath doesn't show.

STEP 7 -
I am using the same brush to pick up a matte black shadow as well. Apply the shadow right on your lids blending it in with the brown that you had just applied.

STEP 8 -
Take any highlighter color, matte or shimmery and apply it right under your eyebrows and blend.

STEP 9 - 
Using a blending brush, blend out everything and make sure there are no harsh lines showing.

STEP 10 - 
Take a precision brush and pick up the same matte black shadow and apply it below your lower lashes. Don't go all the way inside, just 3/4 of the eye would do. This gives a very complete look to the eyes.

STEP 11 - 
Now, apply your liner, kajal and some mascara and you're done!

On a totally (totally!) different note - have you been sucked into the k-drama craze? I friggin' Love these Koreans! I'm currently irrevocably obsessed with the series "You Are Beautiful".

I Insist you watch that ;)

(And yes, I Have been going around coercing others to watch it :D I'm addicted. Totally. Addicted.)

Komal said...

Karishma said...

Rima D said...

Sesky.....;D..Amazingly easy and perfect smokey eyes...Thanks Srish!!

Srish said...

@Yvette - Aren't you a doll! Thank you for your lash envy comment, totally made my day ;) and yes, that's a really good idea to include a picture of the products...the idea never crossed my mind! Silly me :P

@Komal - For small eyes, I think you should avoid lining your waterline or instead using black kohl, use a white liner, it will make your eyes look bigger.

@Abby - u r welcome :)

Srish said...

@Daria - Thank you dear!

@kritika - I will try that some day. Thanks for the suggestion :)

@Karishma - Thank you dear! And I have got that a lot from my other readers that I look like Kim...ha ha! I myself don't see any similarity...she is far more gorgeous and sexy...!!

@Rima D - U r welcome...glad I could help ^___^
