If you read my last blog post, you saw I just bought a bunch of MAC products including several eyeshadows to fill a palette. I have never been a huge fan of MAC's eyeshadows, but my recent purchase is leaving a good impression. The shadows are all very pigmented and do not crease or fade. Now that I know they are up to par, I put together this tutorial for a smokey eye look with some of the eyeshadows I bought. You can use any eyeshadow, as long as the colors are similar it should give the same look.
2. Use a slightly iridescent cream color on the inner corner/tear duct of your eye. I used MAC Shroom.
3. On the inner corner of your eye, apply a light peach-pink shadow. Here, I used MAC Gleam.
4. On the middle of the eye, apply a medium pink-purple. I used MAC Star Violet.
5. On the outer v of the eye and crease, apply a dark purple. I used MAC Sketch. Blend everything with a blending brush with a windshield wiper motion.
6. Apply a waterproof black eyeliner in the upper and lower waterlines. Smudge with a q-tip or pencil blending brush. For this look, I used Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencil in Zero.
7. Smudge some of the dark purple shadow into the lower lash line.
8. Curl eyelashes and apply lots of mascara. I used L'Oreal Voluminous Butterfly Effect mascara.
