Smokey eye tutorial n°2 (using MAC eyeshadows)

Hey everyone!


So here's my second smokey eye tutorial.
I'm going to do kind of the opposite of what we did l did for the first smokey eye where I put the darkest shades on the lid and the lighter one in the crease. This time I'm keeping the lid light and putting the darker shades in the crease.
I'm using All That Glitters as my lightest shade, Twinks as my medium shade and Beauty Marked as the darkest (all from MAC). The other products I used are the same ones I used last time: Zero 24/7 eyeliner pencil from Urban Decay, False Lash Effect mascara from Max Factor, lashes from Claire's and Select Cover-up concealer from MAC. 


(BTW: all pictures are clickable for larger views!)
























I started off with my brows (using Brun eyeshadow / MAC), brow highlight (using Vanilla eyeshadow / MAC) and primed my eyes with Urban Decay Primer Potion.


























Next I applied the lightest shade, 
All That Glitters from MAC, on the lid with a flat shader brush (MAC 239) and the inner corner with a pencil brush (MAC 219), fading it towards the crease.
























I then put the medium shade, Twinks from MAC, in the crease and outer corner with a blending/crease brush (MAC 217) and smudged it along the lashes with a pencil brush.
























I lined my upper lashline with a black eyeliner pencil (Zero / Urban Decay). This doesn't have to be perfect cause we're going to smudge it out anyway.
























I used Beauty Marked from MAC and a pencil brush to smudge out the liner and darken the outer corner.
























On the lower lashline, I applied the same eye pencil to the waterline and smudged it in to the lashline. Again, doesn't have to be perfect, just make sure the line is thicker on the outer corner and thinner towards the inner corner.


























I then put All That Glitters on the inner half of the lower lashline and Twinks on the outer half.
























Finally, to finish the look I applied mascara (False Lash Effect / Max Factor) to the top and bottom lashes, added false lashes (Claire's, they don't have a name or number sorry) and concealer (Select cover-up NW20 / MAC).
























And that's it, all done!


Hope this helped and if you have any questions, feel free to ask!
