Easy brown smokey eyes - Make-up look

Hello Everyone

Hope you all had a great weekend!

Its been a while that I have really done a full fledged make-up tutorial. I wore this simple smokey eyes look to a couple of occasions lately and thought of sharing with you all.

The eye make-up is all about blending and heavily kohl-ed waterlines. I paired this look with glossy nude lips and contouring with lots of highlighting and no cheek colors, and I think this made the whole look very wearable yet sexy. I have kept the cheeks and lips subdued so that the eyes stand out but you are free to do otherwise.

If you want to know how to create this look and the every single product used, then keep reading.

Products Used:

  • Eve Pearl Salmon Concealer in Dark 
  • MAC Select Cover-up concealer under the eyes to clean up after the eyes are done
  • MAC Studio Finish Concealer to hide blemishes 
  • MUFE Matte Velvet + Foundation #55
  • Dior Skin Nude Loose Powder #40
  • Nars Bronzer - Casino
  • Dior Shimmer Powder Amber Diamond
Eyes: (MAC eyeshadows, unless otherwise specified)
  • Painterly Paint Pot
  • Constructivist Paint Pot
  • Make Your Mark Pro Longwear eyeshadow
  • Cork eyeshadow
  • Ricepaper eyeshadow
  • Carbon eyeshadow
  • Lakmè Absolute Ultimate Kohl 
  • Revlon Grow Luscious Mascara 
  • MAC Lipstick - Hug Me
  • MAC Lipglass - Nymphette 

Stepwise picture tutorial : 
  • Step 1: Apply painter paint pot or your favorite eyeshadow base. You can skip this step as we are using a brown base. I applied it out of my habit! 
  • Step 2: Apply Constructivist Paint Pot all over the lid and a little bit in your crease as shown below: 

  • Step 3: Blend the brown base really well using MAC 217 type of brush. 

  • Step 4: Apply Make Your Mark Pro Longwear eyeshadow all over the lid. 

  • Step 5: Blend using Cork eyeshadow on a MAC 217 brush

  • Step 6: Apply Ricepaper eyeshadow under the brow bone

  • Step 7: Sumdge the Constructivist paint pot under the lower lashline and top it with Make You Mark Pro Longwear eyeshadow. 

  • Step 8: Smudge any matte black eyeshadow on the upper lash line using MAC 219 brush and under the lower lash line, but very very close to lashes and concentrated most in the outer part of the lashline. 

  • Step 9: Line your water lines using a dark black eyeliner pencil. 

  • Step 10: Apply Ricepaper eyeshadow in the tear duct to open up your eyes. 
  • Step 11: Apply a good 2-3 coats of mascara to finish the look.

Here are some more pictures of the whole look. 

A little secret to tell you about this look. I drew inspiration for this look from Mila Kunis's picture from the cover of Esquire magazine (November 2012 edition), oh year where she is showing of her sexy back! But, this is not a copy cat of her make-up as her make-up is not really visible in the picture. 

Hope you all liked the look. 

Have a great week ahead lovely make-up fanatics. 

Lots of Love
