I feel slightly like a scam blogger today, as I'm posting this wearing zero makeup up, but... Last week I shared a natural eyeshadow tutorial with you all and it seemed to go over really well, so this week I'm going to share another makeup tutorial!
This week I'm going to show you how I do my more "going out" look!
As always, I start with -
Shadow: MAC - Nylon
I marked where I put Nylon with a low opacity brush in Photoshop (if you couldn't tell that was Photoshopped).
Again, this part makes a nice highlight at the corner of your eye as well as your brow bone.
The next step is also the same as last week -
Shadow: Urban Decay (Naked 1 or 2 Palette) - Half Baked
Apply to your eyelid, blending with the nylon at the corner of your eye.
Now we're going back to the Urban Decay Naked 1 palette and brush.
Shadow: Urban Decay (Naked 1) - Naked
Brush: The brush that comes in the Naked 1 palette
Take a nude shadow and "fill in" the area of your eye that we've not yet put shadow on - more specifically, the crease or the area above your eyelid and below the brow bone.
Shadow: Urban Decay (Naked 2) - Snakebite
Brush: MAC 217
Now is when you want to create the real smokey effect. Focus on the crease and blend upward - making the darkest area the crease and corner (noted by the darker opacity Paintbrush).
Shadow: Urban Decay (Naked 1) - Dark Horse
Brush: Urban Decay Naked 1 brush
Using a very dark brown you want to really accentuate the crease and corner.
*If you don't have a deep crease to your natural eye use the dark brown to make it appear you do. The glory of makeup!*
When I'm doing eyeliner for a night out I always use a black shadow and liner brush on top of the liquid liner by tracing over the liquid line. This will help keep your upper liner from coming off.
I use a dark shadow for bottom eyeliner because I think I looks a lot more natural than pencil or liquid. I always keep my bottom liner darker at the outer corners and blend inwards towards the light shadow (MAC - Nylon) at the inner corner.
MAC - False Lashes Extreme Black
Add your mascara.
