Get the Look: Brown Smokey EyeTuesday, January 11, 2011
This look isn't anything new, but I thought I'd share it with mono-lidders and small crease-ers, because the shadow extends beyond the crease so that it photographs well. Most of the time, smokey eye make up disappears on Asians, because the way the eyes open hides all makeup unless it extends beyond the crease.
This tutorial isn't very picture heavy, so if you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact me :)
Line your eyes with a liner. I am using MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack. Smudge the liner slightly - you can use your finger or a brush. Line your bottom lids as well. Then, using an eyeliner brush, take the black shadow and layer it over the liner, creating a smokey effect.
Highlight underneath your brow with a luminizer or a shimmery nude shadow. I am using TheBalm's Mary Lou-Manizer.
Apply false eyelashes, and curl them with an eyelash curler.
Lipstick colour is your choice - you can use a nude or a berry coloured lipstick to complement this look. Mine is NYX Round Lipstick in Fusion.
And that's it!
Note: only Asians (monolids and small creases) should extend the outer V beyond the crease. This look may be too dramatic for those with larger, more deep set eyes and bigger creases.
