Girls Night Out: Easy Smokey Eye

IMG_0732
Hey girls!!

Welcome back to our blog. Today I am going to be showing you how I like to create a smokey eye for a night out. Whether you are going for drinks at a bar or hitting the clubs, this dramatic eye makeup will look great as it really enhances your eyes, making them stand out. In this tutorial, I have used my trusty Naked 1 Eyeshadow Palette from Urban Decay. I have had this palette for 3-4 years now and it still remains to be my favourite set. I only really use it when I go out for drinks/ parties/ in the evenings (that is why it looks like I’ve barely used it)! And a little goes a long way as they are so pigmented. An item definitely worth investing in!

To start off this look, I would first prime my lids using Urban Decay’s Original Primer Potion to make sure the shadows stays in place all night and also to prevent creasing.

Next, I applied the shade Toasted to my lids as a base colour. As a rule of thumb, you would usually start off with the lightest shade (of the three/four shades you have decided to use) as the base colour.

Then I added Hustle the mid section of my lids (the second darkest colour of the 3-4 shades you are using).

Finally, define your eyes with a coat of liquid liner. This is my favourite step as it ties it together and finalises the look. Don’t forget to pencil line your inner upper and lower lash line!

Remember to add a bit of Darkhorse just below your bottom lash line to balance out the look, otherwise it will be too heavy on the top and look a bit strange and uneven.

Feel free to add a bit of highlighter to the inner corners of your eyes. It helps brighten up the look and make your eyes pop. I personally love adding the white shimmery bit!
