Many of you have been requesting more of wearable look tutorials so today I’m doing a look that has a little bit of color, a little bit of smokey touch and is yet quite wearable! I hope you like the tutorial, don’t forget to leave your comments at the end of this post!
Finished look :
Products used to create this look (Eyes) :
- NYX HD eye shadow base
- Maybelline Colossal Kajal
- Inglot eye shadow AMC shine 26(light gold)
- Colorbar eye shadow Heatwave (olive-gold)
- MAC eye shadow Sorcery (reddish brown)
- Revlon Colorstay One-stroke defining eye pencil Glazed Green
- Bourjois Volume Glamour Max Mascara
- Colorbar Instant cover up stick concealer
Step-by-step Tutorial :
Step 1 : Prime your eyes using your favorite primer. Don’t forget to prime the inner corners, lower lash line and brow bone area.
Step 2 : Using third finger, blend the primer till completely absorbed.
Step 3 : Tightline eyes using your favorite kohl. I have used Maybelline Colossal Kajal which has a medium black intensity. If you like a more intense look, you can use Lakme Absolute Kohl.
Step 4 : Using a pointed brush like MAC 219 or Coastal Scents pointed crease brush, run it along the outer half of the lower lash line to lightly smudge the kohl. I have not smudged it all the way in to keep the smokey look subtle.
Step 5 : Line upper lash line with the same kohl pencil. Keep the line as close to the lash as possible and thicken it slightly as you move outward so that the line is thickest at the outer corner.
Step 6 : Using the same brush used in Step 4, lightly smudge the edge of the liner that is away from the lash line to give a soft, smudged smokey look. We want to the keep the kohl closest to the lash line dark to give the lashes a density and volume.
Step 7 : Apply a light gold eye shadow(Inglot AMC Shine 26) on the inner half of the lid including the inner corner.
Step 8 : Apply a darker olive tinged gold(Colorbar Heatwave) on the outer half of the lid.
Step 9 : Apply the same olive-gold eye shadow to the outer half of the lower lash line. Blend the eye shadow in the crease using a fluffy brush like MAC 217 or MAC 222.
Step 10 (optional) : To add a little more depth to the outer corner, add a little brown eye shadow in the outer corner and lower lash line(only 1/4th of the way starting from outer corner).
Step 11 : Line the upper lash line thickly with a jewel toned green liner.
Step 12 : To give more definition, density and volume to the lashes, apply a very thin line of black liner keeping it very close to the lash line. Curl lashes if you like.
Finishing touches : Highlight brow bone with a subtle highlighter (I have used the same gold eye shadow in a very small amount), clean up any excess/fallout, apply concealer under the eyes and finish off with a volumizing Mascara!
You can either wear a peach lip/cheek or a darker peachy brown/reddish brown lip/cheek with this eye makeup. Corals with look great too! As long as the rest of the face has a bit of warmth, the colors will coordinate well!
I have chosen a soft Peachy combination for this look with a little bit of bronzer to add some warmth to the face.
