I love the smokey eye look. It is my favourite look of all time. Be it soft and smokey or dark and intense and just about everything in between. I know a lot of people say they find it the hardest look to do so i thought I'd share my easiest smokey look. It takes 5 mins and i think it's subtle enough for everyday but still looks a bit sexy for a night out.
The first product i apply is MAC Blackground paint pot. I find this works great as a base and the almost black colour instantly gives a bit of depth to the eyes. I apply this just to the lid without blending.
Step 2 with a soft brush apply Barry M black gold dust over the lid on top of the base colour.
Step 3 Using a clean soft brush blend it out.
Step 4 Apply a soft pencil under the eyes ( i used gosh Metallic brass ) & add mascara.
Smokey eyes done.
The reason it is so easy as well is that the barry m pigment is quite sheer so it sticks well to the base but blends out really easily :)
I wore it with MAC Angel lipstick and added just a hint of blusher as it was daytime and i didn't want it to look too full on.
Do you have a combo that you turn too for a quick and easy smokey look?
