So rare that I do a bolder look when it comes to my eyes so it was nice to change it up a bit. I used tones that most people can find in any of the palettes they own. It's all about using what you already have! I began the video with my base completed (product details below) and then moved onto the eyes for the sake of time. I recommend if you try this look on your own that you start with eyes so you don't have to worry about fallout.
Products Used to Create Smokey Eye Look:
SKIN PREP: Dermalogica Skin Smoothing Cream
FACE: L'Oreal Pro Matte Foundation set with MAC Studio Waterweight Pressed Powder "Light Plus" and MAC Pro Longwear Concealer "NW20" with a Beauty Blender and set with Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder. Warmed up face with MAC Next to Nothing Powder "Dark Plus"
BROWS: Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Definer "Medium Brown"
EYES: I started by tight lining my upper lash line with MAC "Smolder" kohl liner so I could buff out onto the lid closest to lash line. I then packed a black eyeshadow, Make Up For Ever "M-100" all over the lid right to my crease. I then grabbed a smaller lending brush and placed Make Up For Ever "M-656" and blended it out in the crease. Tarte In Bloom Palette transitional light brown shade above the crease. I added same eye pencil in waterline then smoked out lower lash line with same eyeshadows.
CHEEKS: MAC Mineralize Blush "Warm Soul" on apples of cheeks.
LIPS: MAC Lip Pencil "Stripdown" & MAC Lipstick "Peachstock"
