Antiqued smokey eyes - Make-up look!

Hello everyone,

I hope you all are doing well and are happy and healthy. 

I created this look using one of MAC's most famous and my favorite eyeshadow "Antiqued" (reviewed here) and used "Gorgeous Gold" to give a nice pop to eyes. Paired the eyes with a nice soft fuchsia pink lipstick. This look is all about creating a smudged look and I have not used any gel/ liquid eyeliner to maintain the smudged look. This I feel is quite apt for summers, but, one can sport it during any season. Also, to soften, the look, you can replace the lipstick with a muted pink or a nude lipstick, making it wearable for the day. 

Here is the finished look:

Here are the products used to create this look:

  • Eve Pearl Salmon Concealer in Dark
  • MUFE Matte Velvet + foundation #55
  • MAC Studio Finish Concealer in NC42 for blemishes
  • MAC Dessert Rose Blush
  • Nars highlighter in Albatross
  • Step 1: Smudge a black eyeliner pencil creating outer V (UD Zero used here)
  • Step 2: Pack on Antiqued on the entire lid. Blend it using MAC's Soft Brown eyeshadow
  • Step 3: Darken the outer V using a matte black eye shadow (MAC Carbon)
  • Step 4: Smudge Carbon above the lash line, keeping very very close to lashes. Also smudge Carbon under the lower lashline. 
  • Step 5: Place Gorgeous Gold in the inner corner of the lid. 
  • Step  6: Apply MAC Shroom in the tear duct
  • Step 7: Apply black pencil eye liner in the water lines
  • Step 8: Apply black mascara, Revlon Grow Luscious Mascara
  • MUFE Rouge Artist Intense #34
  • MAC lipglass in Cultured
Here are some more pictures and some close-ups of the look: 

I hope you all liked the look. This isn't a very dramatic look, and can be worn by anybody of any age. 

Have a great weekend. 

Lots of love
