Video: My Favorite Smoky Eye Look

Hi guys!! SO sorry it’s been over a week since I’ve posted! I’ve been working on something a little different for this post. I’ve gotten a lot of questions about the smoky eye look I do for a night out, so I thought I would upload a little video on how I do the look. This is in no way a tutorial, I just thought it would be easier to explain the steps and products that I use in a video. I’m also writing out all the steps and linking all of the products below!! Let me know what you guys think!! This is my first time making a video like this, so I promise I will get better with the editing ;)

1.) Before I started the video, I applied my Ultra Repair Cream Moisturizer, Hourglass Dim Light Corrective Primer, and MAC Painterly Eyeshadow Primer.

2.) I used the original Naked Palette on my eyes. Eyelid color: “Gunmetal” using my favorite MAC 217 eyeshadow brush. Outer corner color: “Creep” using my Sigma E55 eye shading brush.

3.) I blend the two colors together with my Sigma E25 blending brush.

4.) After I’m done with my eyeshadow, I apply Christian Dior Airflash Foundation in color “Sand” with my amazing Tarte airbrush foundation brush (this can be used with all types of foundation and is the best foundation brush I have ever used!)

5.) Next, I use NYX Born To Glow Illuminator in color “Pure Gold”. I apply it with my fingers on my cheekbones, tip of my nose, and my top lip!

6.) After I’m done with all my liquid and cream products, I apply Becca Soft Blurring Powder in color “Golden Hour” with my Sigma large powder brush. This is like wearing a filter in real life- ha!

7.) In the video I use my Dusty Rose MAC eyeshadow palette in color “Cool Compliment” with an angle brush to fill in my brows. You can use any eyebrow tool! I also like this NYX cosmetics brow pencil.

8.) Next I do my eyeliner! I use my IT Brushes angle brush to apply MAC fluidliner gel eyeliner in color “Blacktrack”. I also found this gift set including the MAC fluidliner + an angle brush for under $30.

9.) Finally it’s time for bronzer! First I use Benefit’s Hoola Bronzer with my bronze and contour brush by Tarte. I use the same brush to add a little bit of color with Bobbi Brown’s Illuminating Powder in “Bali Brown”.

10.) After I put my bronzer on, I use MAC’s Mineralize Skinfinish in “Global Glow” as a highlighter. This is what makes the whole look pop! I like to use this $8 sheer powder brush from EcoTools to apply it.

11.) Next I apply L’Oreal Voluminous Mascara in “Carbon Black”. You can buy this at any drugstore or Target!

12.) Lastly, I do my lips. I apply my all time favorite lip pencil by NYX cosmetics in color “Natural”. I top it with MAC’s nymphette lip gloss! This is the best lip combination EVER!

And that’s it!! I do not do this look often.. only for fun occasions or going out on a hot date! Let me know what you think of my video and smoky eye how-to! Xoxo, Olivia
