Smokey Eye Makeup Tutorial

So as promised, here’s a quick tutorial on how I do my everyday makeup. I actually have two looks that i love to alternate. But for this tutorial I’ll be doing the black smokey eye makeup. So this is basically my “Everyday” makeup routine. =)

First off…

Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion.

I love how this primer holds up your makeup from day to night. No wonder a lot of people rave about this primer. Its definitely worth every cent.

Apply primer potion all over the lid including brow bone.

Using an eyeshadow primer will keep your eye makeup in place and prevents it from creasing.

For this tutorial, I’ll be using the Urban Decay NAKED palette.

Here, I’m using SIN (champagne color) as my base color for my smokey eye makeup.

Tap out excess powder to avoid fall-outs then apply the color all over the lid.

Next up, apply CREEP (black) on the outer corners of the eye and on the inner half as well. Blend it out to darken your eye makeup and create a smokey effect.

As you can see I’m using the same eye shadow brush for the base color and for blending. Its because i think this brush just does all the job and I’m very comfortable with it. Its the Mac #217 brush. Besides, this is just a simple everyday look, i don’t think i need to use a lot of different brushes. Lol.

Apply DARKHORSE (brown) along the lower lash line starting from the outer corners up to the center of the lower lash line.

I prefer browns on my lower lash line since it looks more natural compared to a black eyeshadow.

Using my favorite eyeliner from Majolica Majorca.

This.I.Love! This liquid eye liner stays on for 24hrs. Believe me. =p

I like to use the end of my brows as a guide to where i want my eyeliner to end.

Creating a winged tip line, connect it to the outer corner of the eye making a little triangle.

Fill it in.

You can also make it as long or as short as you like. Really depends on how you prefer it.

To line my waterline I’m using the Mac power point eye pencil in Stubborn Brown.

Line your water line.

Using Proofit waterproof mascara.

This one is also my faaave. I can’t live without this mascara. I actually got this from Sasa in Hongkong, so i don’t really know if we have this here. This mascara really makes my lashes look longer and thicker. Definitely recommend this!

Don’t forget to curl your lashes before applying mascara.

Apply mascara on your lower lashes too.

Yes, i know… I have really sparse eyelashes. It has always been like this. Huhuuu…

I used Bobbi Brown blush in Pale Pink on my cheeks and on my lips, i have on Mac  in Chatterbox.

And I’m done!

Products I used:

Urban Decay NAKED palette
Urban Decay Primer Potion
Majolica Majorca liquid liner
Proofit waterproof mascara
Mac powerpoint eye pencil in Stubborn Brown
Bobbi Brown blush in Pale Pink
Mac lipstick in Chatterbox

You don’t really have to buy whatever product that’s in this tutorial. I’m sure you’ll find something similar or just about any neutral eyeshadow palette will definitely work.

This is actually my first makeup tutorial and I really hope you guys liked it! ❤

xoxo,
Stephanie
