I’ve always loved the dark, grungy smoky eyes and nude lips look but wasn’t sure if I could pull it off, until very recently. So I gratified my adventurous streak by playing up a grunge look for one of the events last week, taking inspiration from some of the gorgeous red carpet leading ladies.
So step 1 is one of the most crucial elements- choosing your make-up! I picked the Mikyajy Black I box because it’s an all-you-need survival box (make up and tools) for the ultimate smokey eyes and any variations of it, that one might come up with. The box includes an eye pencil with a smudge tip, a black shadow, a black kohl crayon, a gel liner and a mascara for a fabulous and super easy smokey effect.
Step 2 is cleasing the face thoroughly and applying make-up primer over the lids to secure long wearing color and ease of application. The next step 3, is blending black shadow over the lid (intense along the lash line and the crease below the browbone), along with some shimmery shadow in a lighter color (silver is a good cchoice) to highlight the brow-bone and the inner corners of the eye. ‘Blending’ is the key! Smudge the black shadow just a little bit outwards for a winged effect.
Step 4 is Lining the eye with the easy- to use gel liner, turning slightly upwards and thicker at the corner for a cat eye effect. Also line the lower lashline and kohl it up! Finish with a volumizing and curling mascara and Voila! You’re all ready!
Add some nude lip tint and gloss for a foxy night out!
