We all have some eye shadows which are shimmery and others which are matte in our kitty, don’t we? More often than not, all we do with those is just dab the shimmery ones all over the lid and then tone it down by blending it with the matte ones. Today. we shall try a look which will use both shimmery and matte eyeshadows in a way where you can differentiate the “graduation” of colors from matte to shimmery and finally smokey. I was always apprehensive about “ruining” my perfect black eyeliner wing by trying to smudge it, but today I got a bit more daring and did that too. Hope you all like the look.
Have a look at the products used first:
1. Garnier BB cream
2. VOV eye brow powder set ( both for filling the brows and for the matte brown eye shadow that we would eventually need)
3. VOV make up kit
4. Elle 18 kajal
5. VOV brown eye pencil.
6. VOV black eye pencil
7. Qianyu eye shadow trio
8. Faces travel makeup brush set ( for the smudger).
9. Streetwear eyeliner in black.
Prime the eyes and blend it properly.
Fill in your eye brows and groom them properly. I have really thin eyebrows and so this step is essential for me.
Use a creamy black eye pencil to draw a triangle at the outer end of the upper eye lid.
Fill the triangle with the eye pencil.
Use a smudger to smudge the triangle inwards.
Take a matte brown or dark grey eye pencil and draw a thick line on the lower lash line, extending only till half of the line.
Take some brown eye shadow on the smudger and apply over the already smudged triangle.
Use the same smudger to apply brown eyeshadow over the brown eye pencil line.
Use the matte brown eyeshadow to define the crease.
Next, take your shimmery eyeshdow (copper in this case) and draw a diagonal line adjacent to the smudged black triangle. Use a dabbing motion.
On a flat brush, take your favourite matte eye shadow ( orange here) and apply on remaining portion of the lid. Remember, if you are using a shimmery green in the last step, this step should have a matte green.
Use your favourite highlighter under your brow bone( golden here).
Extend the highlighter to the innermost corner of the eyes.
This is an important step! Use your ring finger to blend the highlighter and the crease color. The warmth of the finger blends eye shadows like a dream. So girls, secret to my perfect blending is out! 😉
Draw a black eyeliner wing at the end of the upper eye lid. Have a look at the picture for reference.
Almost immediately, before the liner dries up, smudge it inwards and with an out-in, out-in movement use the smudger to add some definition to the upper lash line.
Use kajal, add mascara and you are done! It’s a lengthy one I know, but its worth it, don’t you think?
Pair these seductive eye look with a MLBB shade and some gloss, peachy blush and do let your hair loose! Flaunt it and be a heart winner 😉 next tutorial coming up! Till then, take care!
