Since there is no talking in the video, I will talk through or in this case type though the tutorial so if you want to know exactly what I did to create this step watch and read.
The first step I did to create this look was apply my foundation ~ at the moment the one I have been using is Cover Girl Aqua CG Smoothers Makeup in 725 Buff Beige
Now comes the eyes, the first thing I did was apply a base. I decided to use a sparkly gray, Kleancolor Smokin Cream Eyeshadow in 04 Sterling. I used this color for the amazing glitter that it has, the over all
I started to apply the burgundy eye shadow and for this I used Maybelline Duo in Amethyst Diamond.
To smoke out the look I use a matte black from the e.l.f. 100 Eye shadow palette, I used two colors a matte black and a golden white.
The black I used to smoke out the look and and shape. While the white was used for the inner corner, the gold sparkle pulled the look together and went well with the reflects the burgundy shadow gave.
I filled in my eyebrows with the Sally girl brow powder in brunette and a little of ebony as well to help balance the look.
Next I applied some Maybelline lash stiletto in blackest black brushing it downwards for easier false eyelash application.
I don't remember then lash brand but try and look for a spiky set to complement and let the eye shadow see through and not cover.
If you can't find this set or you don't feel comfortable with them, try and use single lashes, or simply use only half to still add drama.
I added a little bit more of mascara to bind my natural and false lashes together, as well as to lift from prier coat.
I also lined the lash band with some basic liquid liner to blend the lash band with the darkness of the look.
For the rest of my face bronzer was added as well as blush.
The e.l.f. Essentials bronzer in truly bronzed matte, has quickly become one of my favorites, it has some orange undertones but definitely wearable.
The blush of choice is kleancolors mineral blush in peach. I love peachy,coral colors at the moment and decided to use this one.
And lastly for the lips, I wanted to go for the original combo look of smokey eyes and go nude.
I used wet n wild megalast lipstick in bare it all, and adding a bit of e.l.f. Essential nostalgic lipstick for added shine and to tone down the brownness of bare it all.
Some of these products will have a separate reviews, some products have changed (mostly e.l.f.) and unfortunately some for worst.
These reviews will be up shortly! Thank you for visiting! XOXO Jackie.
