Blanka from Variola Vera Make up & stuff teaches us how to do a smokey eye with Iconic 2 palette!
What you need
Focus and Fix primer – Original
Iconic 2 (1st, 5th and 12th shade)
Amazing Curl mascara
Step 1: Prime your lids with the Makeup Revolution eyeshadow primer
Step 2: Line your eyes with black eye pencil (the softer the better). This doesn’t have to be neat or precise. Our Kajal would be perfect!
Step 3: Blend out the edges of the pencil as much as you can. Go all the way to the crease and don’t forget to blend on the lower lashine too.
Step 4: Grab your Iconic 2 palette! Using a dark beige, taupe or mauve eyeshadow and a blending brush, define the crease. This will also soften the look. We suggest shades 1 and 5 from this palette!
Step 5: Apply the black eyeshadow (12th shade) from Iconic 2 over the lid to the crease to keep the blended pencil in place and make the look even more dramatic.
Step 6: Blend out the edges of the black eyeshadow.
Step 7: Soften the lower lashline with a pencil brush and a little bit of the eyeshadow you used in a crease.
Step 8: Highlight the area under the brow with matte light beige eyeshadow from the Iconic 2 palette.
Step 9: Apply a thick coat of the amazing curl mascara for a full dramatic effect.
You can use any dark colour to create a smokey eye but the most important thing is to blend out all the edges and prime your lids. You can also add a hint of shimmer or bright colour to the inner corner, middle of the lid or on a lower lashline to make a “smokey eyes with a twist”.
