I absolutely loved how this look came together, it turned out better than I imagined and I couldn’t have asked for a more supportive model and the photographer Sophie, who is a talented content creater for business marketing and media, including photography, videography and blogging. If you are looking to enhance your social media or website with new engaging content get in touch with her because she was a real pleasure to work with🙌 I’ll link her website here if you want to get in touch!

A pictorial of my signature eyelook

My signature eyelook changes from time to time from one day only wearing winged liner to now falling in love with a smoked out eye. Whenever i dont know what eyelook to do i always go for this, its my comfort zone and a look i will probably do again because Eid is coming at me fast and i have 0 preparations for it🙃 So i created a pictorial that hopefully simplifies this look for you guys to try out at home.

So firstly, the trick is in the tape to create that winged smoked out look. You need to apply the tape close to your lashline leaving enough space for eyeshadow and in line with the tail of your brow so it follows the shape nicely. Practise this a couple of times if you havent used tape before to make sure its in the correct place. I’ve already concealed my eyes with a concealer to cancel out any darkness. I used the Morphe 35A Palette and i used all the shades in order, expect the grey shade (which ive crossed out too)

  1. My transition shade is shade number 1, using a fluffy brush i created an upside down C shape from the inner corner to the outer corner (where the tape is). I used a tiny amount because this is just a base for the other shadows
  2. Mixing 2 and 3 i deepened the crease, but i packed on and blended these shadows right under the transition. I do this because i dont have the strongest crease (how i wish i did), so if i go in with these two shades right on my crease its hard to blend out.
  3. Building shadows and blending each one is the key so i used a deep dark brown shade again to add more depth to the outer corner
  4. Using a dense pointed brush i mixed dark brown and black right on my outer corner, i really want the outer corner to be intense, dark and smokey. Remember to blend this out using the same transition shade at the start. Everytime you need to blend, either use a brush with no shadow or a tiny amount of transition
  5. As you can see at the bottom, the outer corner is starting to take shape. Keep blending girl

6. Normally i dont put anything on my lid, but here i patted on a copper shade. Again using the transition shade i blended this out to “blend” in with the outer corner

7. Using the Bobbi brown gel liner i drew the tiniest wing, but stopping right where the black shadow is at the outer corner. Using a small smudger brush i smudged out the liner backwards and forwards and a little upwards towards the shadow.

8. Next is the fun part. Using shades 1, 2 and 3 i smoked out the lower lashline. The using a dense packing brush i used dark browns and black in the lower outer V, connecting the upper lashline shadow to my lower lashline. This is really important if you want that connected smoked out V. After you take the tape off, its messy to fix the outer V, you can always clean it up with concealer, but its better to take some time and make sure its connected. I also used a small definer brush using black shadow to draw a line along my lower lashline to intensify it.

9. I filled in my waterline using a brown eyeliner, it gives a softer look than black. Thats my top eyeliner tip. Apply your favourite lashes, i used Huda Beauty Samantha and went for a clumpy lower lashline with mascara (i love doing that😩). After the eye is done you can clean up with foundation and concealer afterwards.

And thats the final look, a beautiful sultry smoked out eye. It took me quite some time to practise this and make it work for my eyeshape. So if it doesnt work out the first time, fear not because in my first time i looked like a panda (not even exaggerating) I’ll be posting more eyelooks and video tutorials soon so keep an eye out and make sure you sign up to recieve an email  whenever i post🖤

See you in my next post!

Bronze and Gold Makeover!

Hey my loves! I did one of my signature looks on an old friend @biryanimuncher today. When it comes to makeovers i tend to get really nervous because i want it to look incredible and make the client feel the same way too. This was my first all so serious/proffesional makeover that i really want to get to more and more practise of doing

So i did a look thats comfort zone level 10000000. Browns, bronze, gold, shimmery copper shades are something i wear every single day and will never get enough of for the rest of my life😩. I remember doing makeup on my sister when i was 17 and i haven’t done a makeover since. I remember thinking WHAT ON EARTH, how do i hold her head, how close do i stand, am i hurting her eye, why does it look so weird or am i doing this right😭😂

Some of these images are screenshots of videos, we were having far too much fun on boomerang so apologies if its not super clear😅
