The smoky eye is one of my favorite eye looks to do. And for those that have always wanted to give it a go, I suggest starting off with a semi-smoky eye. Here, I’ve created a very dark semi-smoky, with a lot of color smudging to the bottom lash line, light shadow hues over the crease and brow bone and about 3 coats of mascara. It’s fun, sultry and playful. It’s great being a woman!
Face: Concealer, Foundation and Powder: MMU Hide It in Medium applied with a dry wedge sponge under eye area, concentrating on inner corners. Then blending well with a concealer brush and dabbing with ring finger to set and give it a smoother finish.
Club Monaco Oil-Free Liquid in Neutral 2 applied with a damp, wedge latex-free sponge. I applied in a stipple motion all the way through and didn’t glide the foundation across the face to give it a more polished and semi-matte finish.
MMU Love Flush in Very Bashful applied with a Pro Puff to set.
Eyes: When using very dark and opaque shadows, I suggest using a super duper eye shadow base so that the shadow adheres well to the skin and helps prevent the dark shadow from smearing all over.
MMU Mattify in Army applied slightly to outer crease, over and on black shadow and slightly extending outwards. Blend well.
MMU I-Liner in Black. Slant the liner slightly and rim eyes, using a slight feathering motion. Try not to glide it along. It should look somewhat undefined and smudged. Set liner with black shadow and smudge a tad more, allowing the black shadow to look lighter under liner and bottom lash line.
MMU On and Off (White shimmer shade) blended lightly and well onto brow bone, just underneath arch and under end of brow.
MMU Left in the Dust in Relic slightly into the brows to enhance the red in Michelle’s brows and compliment hair color and contrast shade to her eye color for extra oomph. I set Relic with Hold It Brow gel.
