Smokey Eye Tutorial using Iconic 2!

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

Smokey tutorial-1


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.



Additional tips:

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”.

– Then apply your lipstick shade to the center of your lower lip and again use your brush o help you follow your natural lip line

– Now apply your your chosen shade across the rest of the lip, working from the outer corners to the center of the upper and lower lip ensuring an even and smooth coverage.


  • Remove excess lipstick using your finger tips by gently patting the lip
  • Using a brush and taking your time will help your lip colour making it last for longer especially if you love those richer shades.
  • Illuminate your cupids bow by using one of our Vivid Baked Highlighters.
  • Want THAT RED lipstick shade we have a shade for everyone, fair skin should wear blue-red shades, olive skin go for more orange based and darker skins choose a deep red or burgundy.

Guest blog post for Makeup Revolution by – Awesome Metals

When the new Awesome Metals kit from Makeup Revolution dropped through
my door I thought it looked particularly interesting. It wasn’t just a
metallic eyeshadow but it came with a little tray and a little pot of
liquid eye primer. I was intrigued.

Makeup Revolution Awesome Metals2
Basically the kit allows you to make your own eyeshadow, not something
I’ve seen from a brand before, but something I was very eager to try

Makeup Revolution Awesome Metals
For £4 this is a great bargain of a product, which will help you build
up a really intense and dramatic eye look. It’s really simple to do
too, you just pop a little liquid primer into the tray, literally just
one drop will do, and then pop in your pigments. The pigments don’t
really come out of the little pot without the use of a brush so make
sure you have one near by. You then just mix the pigments with the
primer and voila.

I did try out the pigments on my eye before mixing with them with the
primer and while they are pretty dramatic on their own, with the
liquid primer you can really create something bold and outstanding.
The primer will also help the pigments stay in place for longer than
they would if they weren’t mixed.

Makeup Revolution Awesome Metals4
The finished look is sort of a metallic foil finish, really shiny and
eyepopping. It’s got great staying power once it dries as well and is
perfect for a special occasion or a night out. I’d really recommend
giving this a try as there are a few colours in the range to choose
from too. I tested out the Magnificent Copper version, which is a
lovely coppery/rose gold shade but I would love to give the Black
Diamond and Emerald Goddess colours a try.

This is a great little kit to have handy and I’m sure you could use
the primer with other eyeshadows/pigments to give instant drama to
your eye make-up.

The perfect everyday look with Iconic 3

The Redemption Pallette Iconic 3 is our most popular pallette with warm colour hues to suite all eye colours. Iconic 3 delivers in so many ways giving you the most popular high intensity matte and shimmer shades.
Here is a quick 6 step look we created using 4 shades.
Re-create the look –
Step 1 – prep your eyelid with our focus and fix eye primer original. This is a fantastic primer to help your look stay with you through out your day or night.
Step 2 – Using a large sized eye shadow brush apply shade 1 as a wash of colour all over your eye lid taking it up to the brow bone. This colour is a perfect matte shade to even out your eyelid ready for colour application.
Step 3 – Taking a small eye shadow brush apply shade 2, a beautiful rose pink shimmer to the inner part of your eyelid and blend out to the middle of the eye, we will apply this later also to the underneath of the eye. If you choose to you can do that now.
Step 4 – Next apply Shade 7 a lovely matte cappuccino hue to the eye lid starting from the outer edge in, taking a blending brush blend into the socket line looking straight ahead and to your mid eye point and blend until even and you have the desired effect. Build colour in stages and blend. Apply underneath the lashline to help create subtle definition.
Step 5 – Final shade applied was 11 a deep. This was applied in small amounts bit by bit over shade 7 and blended through to add depth to the middle and outer corner of the eyelid. Always blend in light circular motions this will help erase any harsh lines and the light to dark colours melt into each other. With a small blender brush continue the colour to the outer part of the lash line.
Step 6 – Using shade 2 apply using a small flat eye shadow brush or angled brush to the the inner corner and lash line of your eye to just before the mid point of your eye. Now from the other end apply in a similar way shade 11.
Final touches, apply mascara and the look is complete. Going out? Then vamp it up using shade 12 as step 5 and add more of shade 2 to the inner corners.
You will never go wrong with our Iconic palettes!
Iconic 3 palette is just £4!
