Get the Look: Majolica Majorca Smoky Eye

Wednesday, January 12, 2011

Sharon, my littlest sister, has just arrived in Melbourne for a little holiday, and she brought goodies with her! :)

Among the goodies she brought was the Majolica Majorca Trick on Palette in GR750.

I wanted to try out the colours in that palette, so I came up with this simple smoky eye look. Smoky eyes are my absolute favourite, so you'll be seeing a lot of smoky eye looks on this blog!

The tools I used were: an eyeshadow brush, a blending brush, an eyeliner brush, a small-tipped sponge applicator (included in the palette), and a kabuki brush.

Using your fingers, warm up a cream eyeshadow and apply to your entire lid. I used MAC's Paint Pot in Rubenesque.

Take the light pink colour from the palette, and sweep it onto your lid, staying below the crease. Focus on the inner 2/3rds of the eyelid.

Lightly dip an eyeshadow brush into the light green colour in the palette, and apply to your crease. Using a blending brush, blend the colour into the crease. A good way to find your crease is to open up your eye and poke the area above your lashes. You should feel the hollow part in between your eyeball and your eye socket (sounds gross, I know). Blend the shadow into that hollow.

Use the darkest colour in the palette, and focus it on the outer corner of your eye, in a sideways 'V' shape. Blend the colour, making sure there are no harsh lines. Be careful not to blend too much into the light colour on the inner 2/3rds of your lid.

Line your eyes with an eyeliner (Mine is MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack). Then, dip your eyeliner brush into the dark eyeshadow colour and smoke out the eyeliner. You do this by rubbing the eyeliner brush above the eyeliner, and making the line thicker.

Do the same with your bottom lashline. For the eyeshadow, mix the light green and dark blue shades in the palette to smoke out the eyeliner on the bottom lashline.

Using the small sponge-tipped applicator that comes with the palette, highlight the inner corners of your eye with the white eyeshadow. You can also use this to highlight underneath your eyebrow.

Curl your lashes and apply mascara. If you like, you can add false eyelashes. I love false eyelashes because my own ones are really short and sparse, so I will always be using them in my tutorials.

Lightly sweep some bronzer underneath your cheekbones, and then some blush onto the apples of your cheeks.

Finish off your cheeks with some luminizer. My favourite is TheBalm's Mary Lou-Manizer.

Apply lipstick and lipgloss. I used NYX Round Lipstick in Circe and Clinique Full Potential Lipgloss in Play-Full.

And you're done! Here's the finished look:

I hope you guys enjoyed this tutorial!

Also a shout out to my awesome cousin Yap Yvonne. HAPPY BIRTHDAY BIG BOY! :D
