For my first makeup tutorial, I thought I’d start with an easy smoky eye. Since I recently purchased a Sephora Favorites Glitz & Glam boxed set, I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to try out some new products while conducting a lesson. Two birds with one stone! 🙂
Start with bare eyelid.
Apply Buxom Stay-There Eyeshadow in Pug to upper eyelid.
Apply black pencil eyeliner to upper and lower lash lines.
Smudge black pencil eyeliner.
Layer Sephora Eyeshadow in Starry Sky over smudged pencil eyeliner.
Apply Ultraflesh Gold Standard mascara and false lashes.
To complete my face, I applied Josie Maran Argan Oil Illuminator to to my cheekbones, the bridge of my nose, and my cupids bow to give the illusion of more sculpted cheeks, a taller, thinner nose, and fuller lips. For a rosy, yet earthy flush, I applied Bare Escentuals All-Over Color in Glee to my cheeks. To finish, I applied Stila Lip Glaze in Vanilla over Smashbox Lip Liner in Smashing Muse.
The end result is a naturally luminous look with a strong, smoldering smoky eye that is perfect for a sexy night out! You don’t have to use these exact products, any similar colors will do, but the Sephora Glitz & Glam box IS on sale right now for $29, so if you’re interested, it’s a good time to buy. 😀
