STEPS ON HOW TO ROCK BOLD SMOLDERING EYES
By: Stevi Christine
My long time make-up artist and friend Stevi Christine has revealed her secrets to achieving the perfect smokey eye. Below Stevi reveals how you can recreate this look yourself!
Step 1: Rock Star attitude. In order to be effortlessly chic you need to feel comfortable and be confident. This is the MOST important step!!! You're a goddess.
Step 2: Grab your favorite black or charcoal grey eyeliner. Jessica loves and introduced me to L'Oreal Voluminous Smoldering Eyeliner which is perfect for the smudging kohl look. Any liner will work for this!
Step 3: Use your liner and cover your entire upper eyelid.
Step 4: Next, use your ring finger to blend into the crease.
Step 5: Take a blending brush and a matte color eyeshadow. I love to use a gray. If you have green or hazel eyes an eggplant shadow will really make your eyes pop! Blend into the crease.
Step 6: MASCARA and LOTS of it!! Chunky. Perhaps 3 to 4 coats.
Step 7: Line your waterline with a black liner. I love Estee Lauder because it's waterproof!
Step 8: Pop on a fabulous lash! (optional) Now you're ready to go!
WHAT YOU WILL NEED TO CREATE THIS LOOK
Take a few steps back and look at your self in the mirror. This eye makeup pairs well with a nude lip or clear lip balm. It's all about the eyes and you don't want anything taking away from them! You are now ready to hit the town with this bold eye trend straight off the runway!
