Matte Smokey Eye

July 9, 2013


Something about MATTE

I love matte shadows! When I saw this palette I HAD to have it!!!

The palette below is from Tarte Cosmetics 


Before applying the shadow make sure to prime your eyes with and eyeshadow base,

this will keep your eyeshadow looking fresh the whole day! 

1. Using a flat brush apply #1 right below your brow for your highlight.

2. Then take the #2 color and apply across your lower lid.

3. I like to add a tiny bit of color so I added the purple #3 to the outer corner of my eye. Use a blending brush to do this.

4. Then blend the purple using the brown shadow #4 and a blending brush. brush up towards your crease.

5.To blend all the colors together use #5 a soft brown in your crease.

6.Use the eyeliner it comes with in your waterline, And smoke out the liner using the purple shadow #3.

7. Line your eye with the #4 color using an angle brush. Wet the brush a little bit with fix+ spray from MAC.This will help you get a ore precise line.

8. Then we add the lashes!!! using DUO, and I used bubble gum lashes from Alash 



Until Next Time!

Here is a client that I got to work with last week, she found me through a the high end photographer from KTB-weddings that I work for.

This is what she looked like on her rehearsal dinner, we wanted to do something fresh but completely different from her wedding makeup. I think we did good :)
