I have been missing out on IMBB since more than a week and sincere apologies to all the readers who had requested makeup tutorials from me. They will be coming up one after another now. I had an eye infection which made my eyes look like a vampire’s :-/ so it was a no-makeup week for me. I had exams too ( yes, I study in a department which has more exams than classes!), and this kept me from writing posts for IMBB. Missed you all like crazy! Getting on with the post, this tutorial is for our lovely Neetu, whose posts are such a delight to read always Neetu, you had wanted a smokey look with the black eye shadow that you have purchased and as far as my memory goes, you mentioned some saree with green border too (correct me if I am wrong). Now, as you have got a lovely complexion, we will be using the black eye shadow with a light hand, otherwise it can look a tad stark on you. So, you can either blend it with a white to create a dark grey or use it with a very light hand.
The products I have used are:
1. VOV eyebrow powder set ( both for filling eyebrows as well as for the dark grey on the eye lid)
2. Garnier BB cream for priming
3. Maybelline hypercurl mascara.
4. Elle 18 eye sparkler in green grenade.
5. Elle 18 kajal.
6. Streetwear eyeliner
7. A beige eyeshdow from a local brand palette.
8. A shimmery light grey eyeshadow from the same palette.
Step By Step Tutorial:
Prime your eyes with the primer of your choice. For all those like me who do not own a primer, you can substitute it with foundation, concealers, compact powder, BB creams, anything which works best for you.
Fill the eyebrows with a dark brown or grey eyeshadow and groom them.
Take a beige eyeshadow (something which is two shades lighter than your skin tone) and highlight the area under the brows. Strangely, orange based beiges like the one shown suits me like anything, although my skin tone is much lighter than this.
Now, take some shimmery light grey on a flat brush and dab on the inner half of the upper eye lid.
Take matte black eye shadow or a dark grey one and create a “v” on the outer edge of the upper eyelid and extend the line to the crease.
Using the same matte eye shadow on a fluffy brush, blend out the harsh lines. Keep in mind not to cover the shimmer grey inner part completely.
Draw the usual winged line with black eyeliner. Make sure the line isn’t too thick.
Put kajal on the waterline and also to tightline the upper waterline. Be generous with the amount.
Use a creamy pencil in green and draw a thick line on the lower lash line. You can change the green with any other color you want. If the pencil isn’t smudge-proof, be sure to set the line with a touch of green eye shadow on top of it.
Apply a single coat of mascara.
And you are done lady! ;)
This is how it should look. Neetu, I hope I could help you. I don’t have a proper matte black eyeshadow as yet, and so could not do it with the same. I hope you understand, just skip the grey and use black if you wish to. Others please let me know what kind of looks you would want from me, take care beauties!
