Very easy and quick smoky eyes!

Hey Girls :)

I am really obsessed with Navy blue... Dark Blue in general. Whether it is an eyeliner or an eyeshadow.. I love Blue.
So, I was thinking of doing a quick and easy way on how to do a kind of smoky eyes which is very wearable for every day! You can do this with any colour :)
The following pictures show the end result:

Lets begin:
  1. Take an eyeshadow primer and apply it to the lids so that the colour of the blue is brought out more.
  2. Then take an eyeliner, I took a navy blue eyeliner and I started applying it on the very far corner of the eye.I only applied a tiny ammount.
  3. Take a cotton bud or a spongy brush (the kind you usually get with an eyeliner) and smudge upwards and inwards to create a fading effect.
  4. Don't apply too much at one go! Because it will be harder to blend and it can be too much then and you would have to start all over again.
  5. Keep layering the eyeliner on the outer corner blending inwards, until the desired intensity is achieved.
  6. Next, apply a dark blue eyeshadow, the same colour as the eyeliner you used. Apply this eyeshadow lightly on the eyeliner.
  7. Take a black liquid or gel eyeliner and line the upper lash line thinly. I applied the liner on the outer part of the eye so as to create a smoky effect. Apply the liner as close to the lash line as possible.
  8. With the same navy blue eyeliner apply this on the water lineand lower lash line. Apply it as thinly as possible.
  9. Take a Black pencil liner and apply it thinly to the lower lash line on the outer part of the eye so as not to overwhelm the blue eyeshadow.
  10. Black mascara is a must!
  11. Define the brows
  12. Blusher (not seen). Try and avoid cool colours of blushers such as pinks. Use instead, terracotta or brownish coloured ones.
  13. Nude lip gloss.

The following are the products I used:
  • Garnier Roll on Anti Dark Circles as an under eye concealer
  • Inglot YSM Cream Foundation no 46
  • Inglot AMC Pressed Powder no 55
  • Maybelline Color Definer Waterproof Shadow Stick in 21 Sweet Bronze
  • Revlon Eyeliner Pencil in 06 Navy
  • Revlon Colour Stay 12 HR Eyeshadow in Ocean Blue
  • Inglot Duraline with Inglot Eyeliner Gel Matte in 77 (Black)
  • Lancome Le Crayon Khol  Waterproof in Raisin Noir
  • Inglot Eyeshadow (for eyebrows) can't get the number as I cannot pull out the Pan. But it is like a dark ash brown.
  • Maybelline Volume Express One by One Mascara
  • The Body Shope Nature's Minerals blusher in Golden Terracotta
  • Avon Plump Pout in Nude Pout
Feel Free to try this look with other colours such as Purples and Browns!
