Smokey Look Tutorial!

products used:
eyes: NYX Single e/s in Dark Grey, NYX Ultra Pearl Mania in White Pearl, UD e/s in Creep and Naked, Prestige Total Intesity eyeliner in Deepest Black & UDpp, Loreal Voluminous mascara
lips: MAC pro l/s fleshpot, NYX megashine lipgloss nude pink
brows:ELF cream eyeliner in coffee
face: Revlon Photoready foundation in 001 Ivory. Amazing Cosmetics Amazing Concealer in Ivory, Benefit Powderflage
cheeks: NYX blush in Taupe (contouring), Benefit Posietint cheek stain

for the eyes:
1. Prep and prime the lids lol
2. Apply eyeliner as you normally would, then smudge a thin coat on to the lid to use as a base. I go a little above the crease. Use a smudge brush to smoke out the bottom lid/lower lash line, then apply black eyeshadow over it to set it, so it stays put all night
3. Pack black eyeshadow on lid, staying under the crease
4. W/a crease brush, apply a dark grey into the crease
5. Use a skin colored eyeshadow to smoke and blend up the crease color
6. Highlight the brow bone, and the inner corners with a white shimmery eyeshadow.

cheeks and lips: 
Because the eyes are so dramatic, I kept the color on the cheeks pretty subtle by contouring under the cheek bones and used cheek stain under my foundation for a natural flush. For the lips, I used Fleshpot l/s by MAC. Reviews all said it was a pinky nude, but it looks more peachy on my skin so I had to throw a pale pink gloss over top since my skin is more cool toned. It's important to keep the lips nude, work with a light hand on the cheeks, and keep the shimmer to a minimum when working with a dramatic smokey eye. Disco ball cheeks, red lips, and black eyes are something only a drag queen can pull off. The eyes should be the focal point of this look. ;)
