I don’t think there’s any need for introduction by now unless it’s the first time you read this…. in which case, go to Look 1 and 2. Heh! Laziness at work here. Without further ado…

Rock Star: There’s a wanna-be groupie in all of us and this is the makeup she wears… drop-dead gorgeous, sexy & alluring.

  1. Apply Freestyle from crease to brow
  2. Highlight entire brow bone with Kinky, blending it well into Freestyle
  3. Using Perversion pencil, line upper and lower lash line, about halfway across, from the outer corner toward the inner. Smudge
  4. Sweep Rockstar all the way across lower lash line blending it into the pencil. The shadow should be thick and smudgy. Make sure the edges look soft and fuzzy
  5. Repeat steps #3 and #4 for lower lash line.
  6. Apply Rockstar all the way across upper lid, winging it out a little at the outer corner
  7. Join Rockstar shadow from the upper and lower lash line at the outer corner
  8. Blend Asphalt into Rockstar on upper lid, then work Asphalt into and out of the crease
  9. Apply just a little bit of Blackout right into the crease line. Blend seamlessly into Asphalt
  10. Downblend
  11. Trace a thin line of Blackout tightly along upper and lower lash lines. Go from outer corner about halfway across
  12. Reline outer 1/3 of eye with Perversion pencil. With a brush, fuse it into the shadow along the lash line. Seamlessly blend pencil with shadow
  13. Line the lower waterline all the way across with Perversion pencil.
  14. Line the upper waterline all the way across and into the inner corner with Perversion. Make sure the upper and lower lines meet.

 

Look5

 

Personally, I think this look is messy if you’re not used to smokey eyes. The dark grey in Asphalt covers a lot of the purple in Rockstar. So for this look, I’d suggest using Asphalt on the crease BEFORE patting in Rockstar on the lids. It is less messy that way, and less room for mistakes. Asphalt also makes you look like you’ve been cleaning your chimney, so I strongly suggest doing your eye makeup first, then use a makeup remover to clean your face before applying foundation.

Moving on…

Sculpted: A more refined, high-fashion approach to smoky, creating a shape with subtle edges and blending inside the lines is the key.

  1. Apply Freestyle from crease to brow
  2. Highlight entire brow bone with Kinky, blending it well into Freestyle
  3. Using Perversion pencil, line upper and lower lash line, about halfway across, from the outer corner toward the inner. Smudge
  4. Sweep Mushroom across lower lash line, blending it into the pencil. The shadow should be relatively thick, but have a soft yet defined edge to it. Sweep it up and out at the outer corner.
  5. Using Mushroom again, create a soft shape from the inner corner to the outer corner of the eye. The shadow should have a soft yet defined edge
  6. Join the shadow from the upper lid and lower lash line together at the outer corner
  7. Fill in the shape on upper lid with Mushroom. Apply a bit more inside the crease creating a seamless effect across the lid
  8. Trace Barlust tightly across the entire upper lash line, blending into Mushroom eye shadow
  9. Trace Barlust tightly about 3/4 of the way across lower lash line. Blend into Mushroom

 

Look6

 

I have no idea if I did this right. Barlust doesn’t really show up on top of Mushroom and I have an inkling I’m not supposed to use Mushroom on my lids. I don’t know… you tell me. LOL!

So there you have it, 6 down, 6 to go. We’re halfway through the look book now. Which of the 6 do you like most? I think I like Look 3 best so far, because it’s the easiest to do, not messy yet flattering 🙂

Until the next 2!
