here it is...
i am a mom by profession and a freelance Make-up artist for fun... i get phone calls from different make-up counters in my area to come in and do events or on call work... i LOVE it! i learn so much every time i work and i can work as little or as often as i want... the perfect job...
i received a few comments about this smokey eye when i did the zipper earrings post
i thought i would re-create it step by step on my friend and show you what colors and products i used...
(i changed it a bit)
i hope you will all try it and maybe see what other color combo's you can use to achieve this look
LETS GET STARTED!
first you will need a base or "primer"
i used MAC paint in "painterly"
next using a "c" shaped blending brush apply the dark brown/plum shadow from the crease to the lash line
i used MAC "sketch"
next take a soft fluffy brush and apply a copper shade just above the crease on the bone creating a "halo", sweep back and forth to blend
i used MAC "coppering"
next take a yellow gold and sweep it from the inside tear ducts to about 1/3 of the way over your lid
i used MAC "goldmine"
next take a neutral shade slightly lighter than your skin tone and blend from your eyebrow into your copper shadow to soften
i used MAC "blank type"
next take your "angle" brush and tap your dark brown shadow under your lower lashes from the outside corner 1/3 of the way across then add the copper in the center 1/3
fun trick!!!! put some creamy white eyeliner along the tear duct
i used MAC "fascinating"
press in your gold shadow right over the top of the white eyeliner with an angle brush or even a lip brush
THE most important part of making a smokey eye "smokey" is lining the "water line" apply black water resistant eyeliner liberally on the inside of your bottom lashes and then squeeze your eyes shut tight to blend
i used e.l.f. cream eyeliner in black with a tiny angled brow brush
a little more black liner just in your top lashes
clean up with a little concealer *do your face last when you do a smokey eye*
lots of mascara
i think she likes it...
here are all the things i used
what do you think? more tutes? send us a request... i have plenty of looks up my sleeve...
