Quick Smokey Eye

Evening all :)  This is a quick smokey eye I was playing around with recently.  It involves Urban Decay brown eyeliner in Whiskey, MAC eyeshadows in Smut, Carbon, Grand Entrance, MAC Blacktrack Fluid Line, and Rimmel's Lash Accelerator Mascara.

I started off by applying the brown eyeliner all over the lid to act as a base and give the eyeshadow something to stick to.  It makes your eyeshadow last for hours too.


I blended the liner using my finger and applied Smut, one of my favourite colours, all over the lid.  I applied Smut under my lower lash line too, to bring the look together.


I then applied Carbon to the outer corner of my eye using a pencil brush and blended in well with a blending brush.  This creates a bit of depth to the look and for me, the darker a smokey eye, the better :)


I applied a little bit of Grand Entrance eyeshadow to the inner corner to add some light.  All I did then was apply some gel eyeliner to my upper and lower waterline, slap on a couple of coats of Maybelline Lash Accelerator Mascara and bob's you're uncle!



I wanted to make this darker since I love really dark smokey eyes, a la Kim Kardashian.  Think I'll have to try one with Carbon as the main eyeshadow.

Night night :)

  2. Love this! Thanks for the eyeliner on the lid as a base tip! I've decent eyes but can't get eye make-up right, it always looks messy. Going to try this step by step guide for a big party I'm going to next weekend. Thanks!

    Love the blog!

  3. Thanks ladies :) I hadn't a baldy notion about eyeliner as a base until I started watching youtube videos last year. The Pixiwoo girls are always doing it, you must check them out if you haven't already :)
