Hey guys, I thought I would come at you with another look tutorial, as I had an overwhelmingly lovely response from the last one, and as I am super busy with rehearsals at the moment these posts are quite easy to do in the little down time I have.
So I wanted to create a smokey eye with a nice bold red lip, so I mainly used another Revolution palette for this look, much like the last, but this is the Revolution "What You Waiting For?" Palette. So let's jump right in.
1) I won't bore you with my foundation routine again, but if you'd like to read about it then you can have a look at the Winter Neutral post I did previously and it goes in to full detail there, but I am trialling a new primer as I'm running seriously low on my Facefinity one, so the one I used on this look is the L'Oreal Infallible Mattifying Primer, and I have to say I was very happy with the product, it's more of a silicone texture which I like, it's compatible to the Smashbox Photo Finish Primer which I love but cannot afford right now, and there was a 2 products for £12 deal at the L'Oreal stand so I picked that up and another new trial featured in this look which was the Brow Artist palette, which includes a wax, powder and angled brush, and also a mini set of tweezers, I had never tried brow waxes before but I think it turned out very well for a first attempt. Anyway back in to the actual tutorial, rambling as per Emily, I used my Bourjois 24HR cream eyeshadow as a base and I can't actually find the colour code on the product, but it's the white shimmer one, as I said I primarily used the "What You Waiting For?" palette, so here's a breakdown of the colours included
So, as a starter I took Your Capable across the lid up to the brow bone, it's the tone closest to my skin so I just used it as a base, then I took the colour Do It Alone across the lid and smoked it out at the edges with a small fluffy brush, then it took Stupid H.. On the outer corner and swept it through the creases, always remembering to blend kids! Then, on a tiny fluffy brush, I took the colour Tick Tock and just packed that on to the centre of the lid, it creates a lovely dimension to the eye and really brings these colours together. I took Stupid H.. on my bottom lash line as well.
2) So after the eyeshadow look I moved on to the liner, and as always I took my beloved Seventeen High Drama Liquid Liner and created a small cat eye flick look, I also took this very slightly on the bottom lash line to add to the smokey effect. I then finished off the eye look with my favourite mascara which is the Rimmel Lash Eccelerator Endless, they create beautiful length to the lashes and they show through well even through the deep smokey eye.
3) Then on to the lips, I wanted to use this lipstick in a look for so long and I thought this was the perfect time. First I lined my lips with Barry M Lip Liner in shade 3, which is a pinky red colour, then on the lips I used Max Factor Colour Elixir Lipstick in Cherry Kiss
So that's the finished look, really simple and really versatile as well, I hope you guys enjoyed this look and please check back for more posts.
