THE Smokey Eye.

In case you missed my guest post on MICHELLE‘s blog… I thought I’d post it on here also for you beauties. I had been meaning to do this post for a while & then got a request to do a tutorial also… So here we go! Here’s my DRAMATIC smokey eye picture tutorial!

You can also add some false lashes if you want :) This is a great looks for a night out. Probably a little OTT during the day but I suppose if Kim Kardashian does it, we can join in too to feel all glam & dolled up. I love to pair this with a nude or pink lip. Here’s a quick FOTD as well for you so you get a full picture of it…

Teint Miracle Foundation by Lancome.
Garnier caffeine eye roll on as a concealer.
ELF HD Powder.

Sleek Face Contour Kit.

ELF Eyebrow kit.
Urban Decay Primer Potion.
Midnight Hour eyeshadow trio (black & grey colours) by myface.cosmetics.
Blacktrack gel liner by MAC on my waterlines & upper & lower lash lines.
SuperSHOCK mascara by AVON.

Viva Glam Gaga by MAC.

You don’t have to use exactly all the products as I did, using anything similar will give you a lovely, intense smokey eye. If you have any suggestions for EOTD, FOTD, HOTD or anything be sure to leave me a comment :)

    I LOVE this look. It’s amazing what you can do with 2 colour eye shadows and a bit of eyeliner! Paired with a nude lip, you make it look simple but undeniably chic. And I’m so jealous of your skin, it’s flawless!

    • Kaushal

      Aww thank you hun! Oh don’t worry it’s not flawless at all! Lol x

  • Mel

    Hey Kaushal, just wondering how do you apply your fluidline onto your upper and lower waterline?
    P.s. You look stunning as always :)

    • Kaushal

      I use a liner brush (but you can use a cotton bud too) and take it near my tear duct, close my eye and drag it across the waterlines :) I hope that makes sense? xx

  • Alisha

    Bloody love it! x x

    • Kaushal

      Thank you Alish!! x
