I am back with another makeup post, today I will be writing about my go to special occasion eye makeup. This is the look I will always create when I am unsure what look to go for but I want to look glam. It’s quick and also easy to do!
It’s a basic smoked out wing with some glam lashes.
I always do my eyes first when doing this look as I will be using black eyeshadow and don’t want any fall out on my foundation. I prime my eyes with Mac paint pot in “Painterlilly” and set this with translucent powder. This sets up a flawless base and pro longs the wear of the eyeshadow. To get the sharp wing I use the trick of sticky tape! This is the best hack for makeup I think haha. I cut a small piece of tape and place it on the outer corners of my eyes pointing towards the end of my eyebrows to give me a straight and sharp line.
As mentioned earlier this look is very simple I only use four eyeshadow colours all from Makeup Geek. I firstly take “Peach Smoothie” and I blend this all through my crease. After this I take “Cocoa Bear” on a smaller blending brush and focus this more on the outer corner of my eye but still blending slightly into the crease. It is then time for the black eyeshadow I use a small precision brush and place the colour “Corrupt” directly on the outer corner creating a wing. I start to blend the black with “Cocoa Bear” to give the smoked out look. I will go in again with “Corrupt” on an angled brush now and draw a more precise wing along the line of the sticky tape. I finish off the blending process by taking “peach smoothie” through the crease one more time to make sure it’s all seamless. The last eyeshadow I use is “Shimmer Shimmer” as a brow bone and inner corner highlight. I then pull off the tape and have the perfect smoked out wing!
As I will be wearing false lashes I do a small line of eyeliner on my upper lash line to hide the band. I use Mayebelline Hyper Sharp Wing Eyeliner for this as it has a small felt tip and is super easy to apply. The eyelashes I am wearing on this particular occasion are MODELROCK #236 but I will wear any lashes from MODELROCK my favourites are : #236, #212 & #259.
To balance out the look I will apply some eyeshadow to the lower lash line. I start by putting “Corrupt” into my water line as this will make your eyes pop! I smoke this out with “Cocoa Bear” on a small definer brush and keep this really close to the lash line. Lastly I use “Peach Smoothie” on a large blending brush and blend both the colours. To finish of the look I will apply a couple of layers of black mascara to the lower lashes, I pack this on quite heavy! I used Benefit “They’re Real”. That is the eye look completed!
As I have done this on many occasions now it only usually takes me around 10 minutes and I think it looks amazing and makes my blue eyes standout. It also suits any lip colour as the colours are all very neutral, in the pictures I am wearing “Snob” by Mac.
