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”.

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.
