This was requested by Laurein, a brown smokey eye look. I decided to make it a really simple look, using just one eyeshadow, something for everyday that won’t take more than a few minutes.
First prime your eyes. Then apply your favourite brown to your eyelids, just right above the crease. I used the sigma 252 brush for packing in lots of eyeshadow. It’s fine if it doesn’t look perfect yet, we still have to blend it out so this step is just applying it evenly all over your lid!
Blend, blend, blend! I used the sigma 224, a fluffy brush is ideal for this.
What I always like to do is use an eyeliner brush and apply some of the eyeshadow just under my bottom lashes from the outer corner to about 3/4 of your lashline. Apply mascara and eyeliner to finish off your look!
STEP #4 (optional)
Add false lashes! I used the Revlon defining lashes, applied them with DUO lash adhesive. (I know I was going to do an entry about false lashes, I might do that later on I’m not sure. Also, you can buy DUO lash adhesive at MAC Counters, just be careful with the one in Antwerp. First time I went there a really nice girl helped me, the others times I had appalling service, very rude staff!)
Hope you liked the look! I used a more warm copper coloured brown to compliment my brown eyes, you can also use a darker colder brown.
