    smokey eyed black tutorial

    since so many people message me about how i get my smokey eyes so dark i'm posting this tutorial!






    foundation/blush/contour and highlight/set with powder (its important with this look to have foundation on the face becasue its so much eyemakeup and with a bear face it wouldn't look so great) also make sure to foundation and set with powder your eyelids also, it helps with the blending and makes the eye makeup last longer.


    use the gold as a base on the lid. with the stiffer brush, which is my contour brush


    place the gold on your lid to the shap that you want (since im asian and i have such a small lid space, i continue it farther up so it seems like my eyes are bigger and i have more lid space that what i really have)


    use the blending brush (i fluffier brush) and blend the shadow to where there isnt any. Blend in a upward movement)


    how it looks when done blending


    then use the dark brown with the same contour brush and place the dark brown on the outter corners and blend inward


    how it looks blended


    then take the black shadow with the same contour brush place it onto the lid


    then blend the black upward so it blends into the gold
    (i showed you how it looks blened on the left eye)


    then take your pencil liner and make a thick thick line


    then take your smudger brush and then smudge the liner so it blends into the black shadow


    how it looks blended


    then take your black shadow and place it over where you put the black liner to set the pencil


    then blend the shadow so theres no harsh line


    now for the bottom...

    you take the gold and place a thick line under the eye.


    how it looks with the gold


    then take the black liner and line the undereye.


    take the smudger brush then smudge the liner


    then set that with black shadow powder


    curl your lashes


    mascara


    then lipstick and gloss, and your done!!

    Ahh, I love it! I espeically love it because I'm also Asian and so the typical smokey eye tutorial doesn't really work on me. Thanks

    I really love what you've done. This idea with gold & black is awsome!

  29. #29
    may I ask what eye liner you used?

  30. #30
    this is one of the first tuts i've read on specktra, and this one is great!

    I was wondering what colors you ordered from the pallete lab..
    - the bottom 6 of the gold and dark brown pallete
    - top 6 of the pallete with the black
    these are in relation to the first picture of the post. and this might be easier to discuss over AIM or MSN.. or email :]

    thanks so much and keep it up!
