Today I’d be doing a simple, everyday smokey eye makeup, which you can wear to your office, shopping or even date. The color combination I chose is rather common, and most you must be having pink +blue e/s in your stash for sure, and this looks is not too fussy. So let’s start with the tutorial
Step 1 :- Prime your lids(Urban delay primer potion review)
I applied whatever foundation was left on my brush onto the lids and blended well, covering them with a compact to get oil-free lids. You can use an eyeshadow base too (You can check nyx eyeshadow base here . Then I patted onto the lids a sheer pink-purple e/s (mine has glitters in it, you can use a matte e/s and too make it wearable take less amount, or choose a soft e/s).
Step 2 :- Apply a navy blue e/s
Then taking a pointed crease brush, gently mark your crease with a navy blue e/s, and blend it well. Remember, the less amount is better to start off. Using a clean blending brush, blend the navy blue to get a subtle wash of color, which will just provide a bit of definition, but not much prominent (check the following image, I’ve blended it too much you can hardly notice I applied blue ) . Take a slanted brush and apply black e/s along the lash line to give a smokey effect.
Then taking a matte e/s (preferably that matches your natural lid color, you can even use your compact) blend any harsh edges. Take a vanilla colored e/s to highlight the top point of your arch, also place it in the inner corner of eyes. Apply lots of kohl (I applied a blue eyeliner on waterline) (You can check out top 15 black eyeliners here ) and lined my upper lash line with a very thin stroke), finish up with mascara and you’re good to go
This is how it looks Hope you liked it
