Blue Smoke Tutorial

Just to finish the other eye, I've done a tutorial on a simple blue smokey eye look. Enjoy!

Items Used:
  1. Missha The Style Cream Eyeshadow Stick in White
  2. Stila Eyeshadow in Champagne
  3. Elianto Colour Studio Eyeshadow in Cool Aqua
  4. Giorgio Armani Eyeshadow in shade #1
  5. Sweetscents Mineral Pigments in Midnight
  6. Missha The Style Magic Eye Changer
  7. Giorgio Armani Eye Pencil in shade #4
  8. Clinique Lash Power Mascara in Black Onyx

Brushes (from the left): eyeshadow brush, small contour brush, #6 mop brush, sponge tip applicator, angled brush, #0 liner brush

First, apply the cream eyeshadow all over the lids as a base and blend. Alternatively, you can use eye primers or anything else that helps your eyeshadow to 'stick'.

Next, take your eyeshadow brush and apply Cool Aqua on the inner lid.

Follow with shade #1 on the outer lid. Using your eye shadow brush, blend the two colors together by gently dragging the brush from the inner lid to outer lid. Light blue to dark blue.

Then, use your small contour brush to apply Midnight on the outer corner of the lid extending it to the outer corner of the lower lid. Blend by gently dragging the black to the dark blue.

Using your angled brush, apply Cool Aqua on the inner lower lash line and follow with shade #1. Drag the colors from inner to outer lower lash line by using your contour brush.

You may add some more Cool Aqua on your inner lid if you like a more intense color.

Apply Champagne under your brows using a foam applicator.

Blend in the highlight using the mop brush and blend the color separation line to get a softer line. Drag the brush gently over your eye lid to soften lines.

N0w, we line. Moisten your liner brush with the Magic Eye Changer. You may also use other mixing mediums or water. Line in Midnight on the upper lash line. Tightline your upper lash line with the eye pencil.

Add a few coats of mascara and you're done!

I've never been good at makeup but then I don't usually wear makeup.

You have a nice site and you break things down well

Thanks. I hope to help out make-up newbies seeing how I was one and I'd just like to share what worked for me so that they can perhaps skip those awkward bad make-up moments that I've had.

To be honest, I never really gotten into make-up until I started to work 2 years ago. Then I got into the cosmetic industry (for skin care) and I became more exposed to make-up. It became rather intriguing. I started to read more, look at forums, ask my make-up artist friends for tips and the obsession begins...

It's really about the interest. Once you're hooked, you'd catch up fast.
