Smokey Eye Tutorial

Hello my beauties, 

Today I have another pictorial for you.  A lot of friends, family & followers have asked how I do my basic smokey eye & my steps are really very simple.  For the most part I always start the same way & it's how I finish up the look that makes it unique so keep reading on if you wanna learn a super fast way to do this!     

First I start off by taping off the outer corner of my eye & priming it from lid to brow bone.

Then I apply NYX JEP in Black Bean just on the lid & in waterline & tightline.

Next I spread the liner out with a cosmetic sponge or brush (I used my finger because it was just on myself). 

Then I applied MAC's Carbon on top of the black liner.

Applied Sugarpill's Tako to the brow bone & blended down.  Used Tako to blend Carbon up toward brow bone as well.

Those were the basic steps.  You can add liner & lashes here or you can add a little something extra.


Apply Sugarpill's Goldilux to the inner corner & blend inward about 1/3 the way in.

Remove tape & apply mascara & liner to upper lash line.  I used UD's big fatty mascara & E.L.F. Cream Liner.

Clean up area where tape was.

Add lashes (I used ardell #201) & you're done!
