SMOKED OUT PURPLE

IMG_0589-0

I love and adore wearing neutral shades – but sometimes, like in life, its good to break routine and try something new. In my case I chose to use colour for a different take on a smokey eye. So, if you’d like to see how I created this look then read on ūüėČ

~STEP 1~

You should always prime your eyes, as I’ll be creating a bold look the last thing i want is to have any creasing with my shadows. As always I turn to my trusty combo of¬†Shadow Insurance by Too Faced Cosmetics, with a thin layer of Soft Ochre Paint Pot by MAC Cosmetics. I then set it with Blanc Type shadow also by MAC Cosmetics. Taking my E35 Tapered Blending Brush by Sigma and the shade Soft Brown by MAC Cosmetics and blend that into and above my crease – this will be my transition colour.


~STEP 2~

Darkening up my crease by adding Texture from MAC Cosmetics using my E35 Blending Brush by Sigma and blending it until the Soft Brown and Texture blend seamlessly. You can repeat this as many times as you like depending on how dark you want it to be.

~STEP 3~

Here is where the fun begins… Taking the shadow Fig. 1 by MAC Cosmetics on my 217 Blending Brush again, by MAC Cosmetics I apply it in my outer V and into my crease and the inner corner of my eye creating what is known as the “halo effect”. So depending on how intense you want this colour to appear keep adding more of this shade and blending out till all the colours transition nicely.

~STEP 4~

As I want this to be a really dramatic look I take the colour Sketch by MAC Cosmetics and place it in the same place as where Fig. 1 is. however just a below it as I want to keep both colours. I use my E45 Tapered Blending Brush by Sigma for a more precise application.


~STEP 5~

For the star of this look I take my new, favourite pressed shadow by Colourpop РI Heart This and place it in the middle of my lid with my finger, blending it into inner and outer edges. As I want this to be an intense look I repeat this until Im happy with it.

~STEP 6~

Traditionally when I do a smokey eye i don’t usually do a winged liner, however i still like to line my lashes. Here I take Bobbi Brown’s Long-Wear Eye Pencil in Jet and line my lash line then taking my E06 Winged Liner Brush by Sigma and smudge out the liner.

~STEP 7~

Now you can either apply a couple coats of mascara and call it a day, or you can go a step further. As I want this to be a more intense look, I chose to apply some bold lashes so I went with “Ashley” by Flutter Lashes.


 

~FINISH~

To finish off this look I apply my foundation – if you want to see how I do that click here. Then taking a combination of Fig. 1¬†and Sketch on my MAC Cosmetics 215 Medium Shader Brush and line my lower lash line – finishing it off with a couple of coats of mascara and… TA DAAAAAAAA!!!! You’re done!


Well I hope you liked this different take on a smokey eye. If you decide to try it let me know!

Till next time XOXO

Smoked Out Plum

Hey my loves!

Here is the tutorial from a look I posted on my instagram about a week ago (sorry its a bit late).¬†Summer is on its way for us in Australia and while¬†this might seem like more of a fall¬†type look I believe you can wear it in summer and/or winter.¬†I don’t know about you by for me personally I dont really like to let the season¬†determine what makeup I wear or don’t wear.

So I hope you like this, and read¬†on for more¬†details…

~ STEP 1 ~

As always, I start off by priming my eyes with my trusty Shadow Insurance by Too Faced. Taking MAC Cosmetics Paint Pot in Painterly I apply that on my lid and blending up to my brown bone. Then taking Salted Caramel from the Chocolate Bar Palette by Too Faced and mixing it with a touch of Red Brick by MAC Cosmetics I blend that into and just above my crease Рthis will be my transition shade and really help to blend and smoke out the darker colour.

~ STEP 2 ~

Taking Sketch by MAC Cosmetics I use a small flat shader brush to really pack that colour onto my lid and up into my crease. I go over this a few times to really intensify the colour.

~ STEP 3 ~

Taking a small tapered blending brush I take my transition shade combination and place that directly into the crease to help smoke out my crease line and making it seamless. I then go back in with Sketch and make the lid more intense.

Going over my crease and transition shades with a big fluffy brush I make sure that all lines are blended out smoothly.

~ STEP 5 ~

Taking a small concealer brush I take the pigment Utopia by Makeup Geek and apply it wet (I used MAC Cosmetics Fix Plus Spray) and carefully place it directly into the centre of my lid. I softly blend out the edges into the shadow. This gives the lid a glowing effect.

~ STEP 6 ~

As this is a slightly smokey look I don’t want to apply any liner – I will however, be applying some false lashes.¬†For¬†this look I’ve shown you two options:

  1. Flutter Lashes in Chantelle (one of my all time favourite styles)
  2. Ardell Lashes in no. 120 Demi Wispies (love how these flair out at the ends)

Once they are on and the glue is dried… I then apply my foundation, powder, contour etc.

To finish off the look I line my lower lash line with Salted Caramel from the Chocolate Bar Palette by Too Faced and mixing it with a touch of Red Brick by MAC Cosmetics. Taking a small detail brush I apply a touch of sketch really close to my lashline to help make this a really smokey look… And there you have it! ALL DONE!
