My first attempt at a step by step eye shadow tutorial.. not bad right? Hello everyone! I promised more makeup posts, so here you go!
This look is perfect for a party, special event, or just because! I hope that you enjoy!
The first thing that I do before any eyeshadow look, is prime my eyelids. This helps the eyeshadow stay longer and creates a nice clean base to start with.
Transition shades are always a good step. Light browns or skin tone eyeshadow are good transition colors. This step makes it easier to transition from a lighter shade of eyeshadow, into a darker shade. I make sure and blend the light brown like it’s no ones business.
Once that light brown is all blended, I went in with a deep cranberry color to blend right in with that first shade. I cannot tell you how important it is to blend. Keep on blending!
The step that helps create this smokey eye, is the dark outer corner. On a very small blending brush, I picked up some black eyeshadow and slowly started blending that into the outer V of the eye. I am making sure to take my time on this part, black eyeshadow can be very tricky to work with.
Once that black is all blended to my liking, I went in with a light, shimmer berry color and packed that onto the lid.
To brighten up this look a little, I went in with a highlight shade and placed that right under my brow bone. This just gives the smokey eye a little bit of something extra. Another trick to opening up the eyes a little, is to add the highlight shade to the inner corners of the eyes.
To balance out my eyes, on a blending brush, I used that same cranberry shade that I used in my crease, and ran it under my lash line. I also added some black eyeliner in my waterline.
After that was all completed, I threw on some mascara and a little highlight on my cheeks. This is my finished look! I hope that you enjoyed it! Smokey eyes are my favorite looks to create.
The pallet that I used for this tutorial is the Morphe X Kathleen Lights Pallet.
