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 ;)
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!
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!
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
