Back to Basics.(Smokey Eye look Made Easy)

How to put on basic eye shadow without all those brushes and cellotape.  Its quick and easy and looks really dramatic. I have done some sketches and I apologise now there not that good. The sketches of all the different stages is just to show you how easy basic eye shadow is. I also put a video together so you can watch the step by step tutorial. In the sketches bellow I have left the eye lashes off some of the sketches on purpose also I have used beige, brown and dark brown pencils to shade in the eye. In the video I have used silver, medium silver and darkest silver from the 120 Fraulein 3*8 Make Up Palette. Don’t forget to put primer on before you start to do your eyes. I use NYX eye primer. I am not a make up artist I am self taught and this is how I learnt how to do basic eye shadow. 

1) Ok lets Start with my first sketch. Think of your eye as a fan. when you start to add eye shadow try to divide the eye into three sections, with a little section left under the eye brow.

2) Choose the lightest shade and add this to the inner corner of your eye up towards your eye brow.I have used a cream colour shade. Shade across the eye lid as far as I have shown in this sketch. I have drawn lines on the sketches just to give you an idea.

.

3) Now Add the brown to the middle of your eye lid and leave a little space just under the eye brow. You can blend this into the lightest shade or leave till the end

4) The darkest of your colours is to be added to the outer corner of your eye again leaving enough space for you hight light. Blend this shade into the middle shade. also add this to just under the lower lash line.

Add the high light just under the eye brow. Your eye is nearly ready. Add eye liner to the top of your eye close to the upper lash line. I use Rimmel liquid liner but you can use kajal or pencil if you are more comfortable with this. Also add eye liner to the bottom of your eye close to the lower lash line. Fill in your eye brow with eye brow pencil and add your mascara. This all seems a lot to do, but once you do this more times you will realize that it doesn’t take that long. Practise this with different colours ranging from the lightest on the inner corner of your eye lid and the darkest at the outer corner of your eye lid.

5) Blend the shades and add the high light

Easy Step Smokey Eye Make up

Meow Pussycats
This method becomes  easier once you start experimenting with different colours and creating your own different looks. I got bored of looking the same every day so I change the colour of my eye shadow every day. I tend to mix colours that you would never mix and that just creates different colours.

First of all I have taken a picture here below of an eye shadow pot with an eye in it, this is just to show you the inner, middle and outer triangle. In the other picture i have put a pink ribbon just to show you where the cellotape should go, You may not be able to see it on my face as my tape is transparent.

——— -Outer triangle——–

———-Middle triangle——–

———- Inner triangle———-

The pink ribbon is to show where      the cellotape should go.

Add  any eye primer on your eyelid. I used NYX.

Stick cello tape on diagonally from the corner of your eye outwards

 

Start by putting on white eye shadow on the inner corner of your eye up to the eye brow and on the bottom corner just under the water line.

Then add the add the blue on your bottom eye lid up to the crease lets call this inner triangle. I am using the blue from the Sleek palette.

Then add the add the blue on your bottom eye lid up to the crease lets call this inner triangle. I am using the blue from the Sleek palette.

Then add the add the blue on your bottom eye lid up to the crease lets call this inner triangle. I am using the blue from the Sleek palette.

Then add the add the blue on your bottom eye lid up to the crease lets call this inner triangle. I am using the blue from the Sleek palette.

Now take the orange from the same Sleek palette, add this above the blue starting at the crease upwards this is the middle triangle. Blend the orange gently into the blue.

Take a darker shade of orange or red, add this on top of the middle triangle creating an outer triangle and blend into the orange.

The last part of the eye is the Smokey shadow that is created either by a very dark red but I am using black from the sleek palette.

Start by adding a little to the corner crease and then gently with a brush blending it into the middle triangle and the outer triangle. Try not to bring it to far into the middle of your eye. Blend out very gently.

Add white under your eye brow and bring it across the outer triangle and finish at the cello tape. This creates a high light under your eyebrow.

Then take the cello tape off as you will see there is a very sharp line with all the colours blended in, you can leave this as it is or take a brush and blend the line out. Wipe away any excess eye shadow from under your eye.

with a slanted brush add some blue from the palette and add this just under the water line in the middle of your eye.

Now add black to the slanted brush and add this to the end of the eye just under the water line. By doing this your eyeliner will stay on longer.

To finish the eye I am going to put liquid liner on top, and then use the gel eye liner for the bottom and fill in the water line with the gel eye liner.

Finally the finished eye.

Finally the finished eye.
