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”.

– To apply your chosen lip shade, place a good amount of colour onto your chosen brush (lip brush, small synthetic eye shadow brush)  or using the lipstick directly onto your lip.

– Apply your lipstick firstly to the center of the upper lip (cupid bow) using the flat side of your brush to create an outline

– 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.
