Blue Black Smokey Eye Makeup (Video)

by Rati on March 20, 2010 · 33 comments

Here comes my next video. Simple, easy and any beginner who is just starting with eye makeup would be able to do it.

You need not use the same products I used.

  • You may do this look with any black and any blue eyeshadow.
  • Those who don’t have MAC Paint Pot in painterly, you may use Beyu eyeshadow primer or Inglot’s eyeshadow primer (Rs 400 +). You may also apply your foundation or concealer on your eyelids and apply some powder on top. The powder would take care of  oils on your lid and the foundation would give a base.
  • You may use powder blush instead of a cream blush. Peachy Rose from colorbar would make a good option for this look and a pale pink lipstick would compliment the eyes.
  • You may also use a black liquid liner to line your eyes.
  • The look is not hard to achive. Just don’t be afraid of experimenting with colours. But atleast you need to start somewhere. :)
  • And most important, have fun with makeup. Enjoy yourself. :)

Priyanka, in real life I don’t fill my eyebrows because for the same reason you stated . I just brush my eyebrows in place. But for tutorial sake, I show that filling eyebrows is part of your face makeup .

Aww!! may be you could just full them everytime than going for surgery. Surgery sounds scary.

lol!! I actually didn’t realize the head banging this until I edited the video. I left the part unedited only. :D I really enjoy doing makeup.

Awww!! Mrunmayee complicated and fantasy makeup looks nice to me but you cannot do those on day to day basis. I do makeup pretty quickly myself and that’s what I do in videos as well. Glad you liked. :)

Hey, another video!!! totally loved it. Have been looking for a simple way to start using the smoky eye look. I think I’ll try this look with dark blue shadow as I already have it.

And a small request – please please please also mention the artist & song along with the makeup list coz I love the music you use :) :)

Rati March 20, 2010 at 1:02 pm

Ame, these are all the songs that I listen myself but now I am facing copyright problem with youtube using these. :( I will however mention the name of the song from now on. :)

Do that would blue. Blacks can wait because they are the most difficult to use. :)

Glad you liked. :)
