This is an easy and fast smokey eye using the UD Naked Palette. If you don’t have the palette, all you need is brown, black, grey and white eye shadows.
Hope you like it.
Brow highlight: Virgin (white with light shimmer)
Crease: Buck (matte brown – a little darker than your skintone will do)
Lid: Gunmetal (blueish grey)
Outer V: Creek (black with light shimmer)
Upper lashline: Black eyeliner (smudged)
Lower lashline: Creek (black with light shimmer)
Brow: Bobbi Brown in Mahogany
Lashes: Dior Extase
I like to use brushes for applying makeup. It’s less messy and makes blending much easier.
1. Use an eyeshadow brush to pat on Gunmetal on your lid. Do not go above your crease.
2. Use a smaller brush to darken the outer corner of your eye with Creek.
** The intensity of the colours is to suit your preference. Don’t pack on too much colour at first go. Layer it on along the way. Less mistakes this way.
3. With a fluffy brush, pick up some Buck (not too much) and blend along the crease to soften the line. The brown is not suppose to show too much. It is to warm up the colours and help transition from black and grey to our skintone. Trust me. This makes a LOT of difference in how your eye makeup shows up.
4. Use Virgin to highlight the area under the brow.
5. Line your eyes using your favourite black eyeliner. I like to use Creek to go over the liner. This will help soften the line.
6. With a small brush, use Creek to smudge the lower lashline.
7. If you like, use Virgin to highlight the inner corner of your eye. This will brighten your eyes immediately.
8. Apply a few coats of mascara. If you prefer, you can add some false lashes for a more dramatic effect.
For the rest of my face, I used:
Face: Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation in Sand
Cheek: NARS Orgasm (or any peachy colour)
Contour: NARS Laguna (bronzer)
Lips: Bobbi Brown Lip Crayon in Honeysuckle (light nude peach)
This is how it looks. This is not too dramatic since I was out going out for dinner with family. You can always pack on more black for an intense look. False lashes always do the trick too. Here, I also half closed my eyes so you can see how the colour transitions…
