Step 1: Introduction
Hi there! Thanks for joining me here today on Pursebuzz and more. I’m going to show you today how to create a smoky eye look by using browns. So we’re going to call it the smoky brown eye look.
Step 2: Base
The very first thing we’re going to do is put a base on your eyes. What I have chosen is the MAC cream base in nude. It’s just a nude color, no shimmer, no fuss, no muss. Just a basic cream. We’re just going to apply this all over my eye, like this. All over, all the way up till you reach your eyebrow. You know, I’ve received some questions about highlighters, and how I’ve forgotten to use it. It’s not that I’ve forgotten, it’s just that I’ve used the base as the highlighter. So, that’ll work out well, too, saving some time. Sometimes I will add an additional shadow to it, but sometimes you can just use the base that you have under it.
Step 3: Llama
All right, so I have that all covered up. And the next thing I’m going to do is I’m going to use Llama, right here. It’s just a cream colored, matte shadow. Very basic. And I’m going to be using this with my 252 brush, this flat brush right here. I’m going to take it and apply it all over my lid. All the way to the top. It’s a very natural color, very light. Like that.
Step 4: Symmetry
And the next thing I’m going to do is I’m going to use a brown, and it’s called Symmetry. It’s kind of like a mocha color. I’ve used a lot of it; there’s a hole right there in the middle. OK, so what I’m going to do is I’m going to take my 224 brush and I’m going to take a little bit, and I’m going to apply it this whole middle area right here, skipping that little part by my eye. Skipping that little part. So we’re just going to apply it here in the middle. Just like that, back and forth. It’s a very natural look. Just something to define your eyes, but nothing to bring too much attention to it, I guess you can say. OK.
Step 5: Charcoal Brown
The next thing I’m going to do is I’m going to take this other brown called Charcoal Brown. It’s a little bit darker, also a matte color. Also using my 224 brush, I’m going to create a line right here, kind of outward, like this. A little bit past my eyebrow. Then I’m going to go right over this part right here in the middle, like that. And I kind of lift my brush as I’m going to the middle, towards the inner part of my eye. Just kind of lift it up, like that. That way I don’t have any color right there. Just kind of a, run it over with that color, but not actually purposely putting that color right there. So I’m just going to go back and forth and blend the colors. Like that. OK.
Step 6: Shadow
Now what I’m going to do is I’m going to take my shadow here, in Smut, which is a dark, dark brown. I don’t know if you can see it. Right here. Just a very dark brown. I’m going to take here my 217 brush. I’m going to just take a little bit. I’m going to just blend it in, like that. Over your other colors, just on the outer part of your eye. Just like that; just blend it in. This color’s a kind of brownish, kind of black, like smut. OK. So all these colors here are matte. It’s a very flat color. There’s no frost or shimmer whatsoever. You can see it, there.
Step 7: Eyeliner
And the next thing I’m going to do is I’m going to line my eyes. What I like to do is I like to just use a brown eyeliner. Like this, this is just an olza
, a deep brown, and I’m going to line the bottom. Like that, just half way. Now, this look is a lot of layering, but it looks very simple once it’s completed. You’re going to the same thing just half way with this liner. Just a dark brown. You can see that? OK.
Step 8: Rich Ground
Then the next thing I’m going to do is I’m going to take my Rich Ground fluid liner and I’m going to grab my angle brush, it’s number 266. And I’m going t
