Tutorial : Natural Smokes

Hi lovelies :)

Last time I did a FOTD, a follower, Cheryl, asked me if I had a Step-by-step tutorial or a video about that particular look. Unfortunately, I didn't have one :( BUT, this time, I have a step-by-step tutorial for you guys :) YAYYYYY ! It's a quick simple shimmery everyday look, but it took me SUPER MEGA LONG because of the pictures haha :( I did this look using Maybelline's Natural Smokes Quad :) By the way, a review is coming about that quad. I say it's more of a day-time look, but you can definitely add some more intensity to your outer V, add falsies and you are good to go for night-time:) Isn't that wonderful?

If you're interested, in this brown smokey-eye, keep reading :)


Step 1: Base

Put any pretty shimmery warm chocolate brown base on your lid. I used the first shade from the right in the Revlon Illuminance Crème Shadow in Not Just Nudes. I love these creme shadows. They make good bases. However, if you want them to not crease and last, put a primer before.

Step 2: Lid Color

Take any flat eye-shadow brush and put the CREASE COLOR of the quad on your lid. Yes, I'm not following their instructions. Shame one me ^^


Step 3: Crease

Take any brush you're comfortable with and put the LID COLOR of the quad into the crease. Personally, I wouldn't use any brush that is stiff because we're doing a day-time look, but if you're going for a night-time look, you can definitely take a stiffer brush and define the crease a lot more.

As you can probably notice on the picture below, I drew a drastic crease line. I drew it for those of you, who are still struggling with finding it. The crease is basically the socket of your eye. Close one eye and take a brush. Then, GENTLY poke your eye. Where you feel a socket, that's your crease. Normally...


& I blended everything of COURSE :)



Step 4: Highlight

Take any angled shading brush and put the Brow Bone Color of the quad on your brow bone. I tried to take a picture, but the color wasn't showing and I got pissed. So, I continued haha.

Step 5: Outer Corner

Take a pencil brush, or whatever brush you feel you're comfortable with, and take the darkest color of the quad. Draw a LIGHT outer v or outer corner or outer edge. ( However you call it ^^ ) Keep in mind that this is a day-time look, so you don't want it too intense.



Step 6: Final Touches

Take the same outer corner color you put on you lid earlier and put it on the outer 2/3 of your lower lash line. Then, take the lid color and put it on 1/3 of your lower lash line. After that, curl your lashes and put some mascara on :)


Final result:











If you're wondering why the lighting is different from picture to picture, well it's because of my mischievous friend the Sun, who is playing hide & seek behind the clouds.

XOXO, A.

Coucou!
Je voulais savoir, avec une bonne base (comme la primer potion), les fard crème de Revlon tienne bien?

Salut Nini :)

Ouep c'est exactement le UDPP que j'utilise et avec les fard crème ça marche à merveille :) Par contre, je n'ai jamais essayé le UDPP et les fards crème SEULE sans fard à paupière. Faudrait que je l'essai.
