Dark smokey eye!

No makeup look is more popular than a smokey eye and they don't have to be really difficult and need loads of different products. I like to do makeup on my blog that I know anyone can achieve so here I a really simple way of doing a smokey eye.

MAC Studio Sculpt Foundation
Illamasqua Skin Base Lift Concealer
MAC Prep and Prime in Light Boost
Sleek Blusher in Chantilly
Urban Decay Ultra Definition Loose Finishing Powder
Benefit Hoola Bronzer

I applied the foundation all over the face then concealed my under eyes with the skin base lift concealer. I highlighted the under eyes and chin and forehead with the prep and prime then set with the finishing powder. I used the bronzer to the hollows of the cheeks and around the hairline and applied blusher to the cheeks.

Avon Black Eye Kohl
Collection Eyeshadows, Matte Brown and Matte Skin Shade
Mac Eye Pencil in Teddy
Maybelline The Falsies Mascara
ABH Brow Wiz Pencil
Benefit Gimme Brow

I started with doing my brows in the usual way. I then used a bit of tape on the outer corner of the eyes to help create a straight wing. I applied the black eye pencil all over the lid into the crease and under the eye too then blended it out at the edges. I then used a brown eye shadow into the crease and around the eye to smoke it out and make sure there and no harsh lines. I then highlighted under by brows with a skin coloured shadow. I added more and blended more until I was happy with it. I lined the water line with the brown eye pencil and went over the top lash line with the black pencil again to finish. Last but not least I applied mascara to the top and bottom lashes.

NYX Lip Pencil in Pale Pink
MAC Lipstick in Fleur D'Coral

I applied the lip pencil all over the lips and patted the lipstick all over the top.

So that is my dark smokey eye I hope you like it!
