Step 1: Apply base:
The very first thing that your going to put on your eye to create the Victoria Secret eye look is a base. So I'm just going to use my Luna that I always like to use. You can use any base that you'd like as long as it's a neutral colour. And I'm going to apply that with my concealer brush. It's a 242 synthetic nylon brush. And I'm just going to apply that from my brow bone to my lash line. And I'm going to spread it evenly like you always should. I'm going to pat that in there.
Step 2: Apply the colour:
Once you've evenly distributed your base, your going to apply the next colour and the next colour I'm going to use is called "Smoke" and it's a Stila shadow pot and it's really soft. It's actually a mousse in a container like this. So what your going to do or what i like to do is I just like to use my finger - my ring finger - and just apply just a little bit on my lid and a little bit goes a long way. I'm just going to pat it down on my lid about two thirds of the way. And this is going to create that smoky gray colour. So it's not quite black and it's not quite gray. I'm going to pat that in and your going to add a little bit more as you go. I'm going to go right above my crease so that when I open my eye you can see just a little bit on the top. And I'm going to shape it and make it a little pointy. I'm just taking that smoke and I'm dragging it around just like that and this is creating that really smoky affect. You can apply as much as you want, you just want to do a little at a time and add on as you go because you don't want too much of a dramatic gray because your going to add shadow for that.
Step 3: Add the eye shadow:
Once you've created your guideline your going to add your shadow. So the colour that I'm going to be using is from the originals - MAC originals - and it's called "Char". And it's just a dark intense gray but it's not quite black and it has lots of shimmer to it. It's very pretty, it's a little bit lighter than black tie if your looking for colour to match it. And I'm going to take a lighter brush like a 224 -a pointy brush - and I'm just going to add just a little bit to the ends and I want to concentrate on that because I want it to be just a little darker, but you don't want it to be black. So I'm just going to put a little bit on the outer corner. And then I'm going to bring it in. I'm going to add just a little bit more up here to this little gap. I'm going to go in a wind shield wiper motion, back and forth. Just kind of getting that blend in with that smoked pot- That "Smoke" pot earlier is from Stila and it's a mousse so it's very different and it's very soft, but it's very shimmery and it's a very fun product to use.
Step 4: Apply brown shadow:
Now that you've created a ''v" with your charred shadow, your going to take a brown shadow and your going to apply it to your lid. So I'm going to be using - I don't know what this is called - "Ochre Style". You can see it there, it's from the MAC originals line and it's like a golden brown which will really warm up the lids. So I'm going to take a 239 and just kind of pack it down or you can take something like this. Like a flat brush. And your just going to pack a little bit on your lid. And your going to leave the entire inner corner alone. You don't want to put any shadow there yet. So I'm just warming up my lids with this golden brown colour. It's almost like a warm tan. And I'm going to blend the crease colour in right there back and forth kind of merging the two colours.
Step 5: Line inner eye lid:
Now that you have a nice blend of the two colours, your going to take your - and you can use Luna - I'm going to be using a shade stick called "Overcast", and I'm just going to line the inner part of my eye here. And this is going to create a sticky base for my pigment. I'm just going to dab just a little bi
