Smoked Salmon Look

 

For this simple yet elegant smoky eye, I used the Too Faced Sweet Peach Palette. If you don’t have this palette, a great alternative would be the Urban Decay Naked 3 palette.

This look is great for green and blue eyed individuals.

Steps are as follows

  1. With a fluffy blending brush, buff the shade Georgia all over the eye to brow bone.
  2. Using an angled blending brush, lightly blend Charmed, I’m Sure in the crease area. Be sure to hug the eye lid area.
  3. With a small loose blending brush, lightly blend Tempting into the crease below Charmed, I’m Sure. From the outer corner going 1/2 into the lid.
  4. With concealer of your choice and a small detailer brush, lightly cover the 1/2 of the lid starting from the inner corner.
  5. Using a small brush, pat on the shade Bellini onto the concealer. With the brush used in step 3, blend until you have a seamless transition.
  6. With a concealer brush, highlight the brow bone and inner corner of the eye with the shade White Peach.

There you have this simple Smoke Salmon Look.

Smoked Copper Cut Crease Look

 

It’s been ages since I’ve done a cut crease so I figured it was time to do one for you guys. So today I am giving you this Smoked Copper Cut Crease Look.

For this look, I used the Urban Decay Vice XX reloaded palette. If you don’t have this palette, the Morphe 35O is a great alternative.

Steps are as follows…

  1. Using a fluffy blending brush and coat the lid entirely to brow bone using the shade Anonymous.
  2. With a pencil brush, cut out the cut crease with the shade Suspend from inner eye to outer eye. Use the tale of your eye brow for guidance and natural eyelid to determine the shape of the cut crease.
  3. With a fluffy tapered blending brush, blend Suspend into the brow bone.
  4. Using concealer of your choice, and a small detailer brush, coat the lid up to the line of the cut crease.
  5. Lightly pat on the shade Moonflower on top of the concealer. I recommend using a small panel brush for this. With the same brush place below the waterline.
  6. With a concealer brush, highlight the brow Bone and the inner corner of the eye with shade Midnight Cowboy.

There you have this Smoked Copper Cut Crease.

The Flamingo Look

For this avant-garde look, I clearly got my inspiration from an elephant. Haha, no just kidding.

I drew my inspiration from a flamingo with the thick black eyeliner to vibrant pink for this editorial look.

I used the Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bons palette for this look. A great alternative would be the Coastal Scents Think Pink Palette.

Steps are as follows….

  1. Take the shade Totally Fetch with a sturdy pencil brush. Sculpt out the curvature of the cut crease from eyebrow tho inner corner.
  2. Take a clean stiff blending brush and buff Totally Fetch upwards to the brow bone. Use the same brush and smudge Totally Fetch onto the waterline.
  3. With a small detailer brush, lightly blending onto the lid area and cut a clean line from the inner corner of the eye to the brow bone or as desired.
  4. Using a flat top blending brush, Sprinkle on top on the conceal area. Try not to tap or smear Totally Fetch.
  5. With a concealer brush, highlight the brow bone with Satin Sheets.
  6. Take a black eyeliner and outline the look, intentionally having a thick line. Try to go below the cut crease.
  7. Take the brush from Step 2. and blend below the eyeliner with the excess on the brush and into the waterline.

Hey! Freakshow Look

This look was inspired by the gorgeous shade Freakshow, NOT that I’m a freakshow (although some may claim that as truth).

I used the Urban Decay Vice XX Reloaded palette for this look. A great alternative would be the MAC Purples and Blues Eyeshadow Palette.

This look is great for green and brown eyes individual of all skin tones.

Now, let’s get our freak on!

Steps are as follows…

  1. With a fluffy blending brush, take the shade Anonymous and dust the lid and brow bone entirely.
  2. Using a loose blending brush, work the shade Suspend into the crease area to the inner corner. Using blending motions towards the brow bone.
  3. With a small blending brush, lightly pat Freakshow into the corner of the eye and the last 1/3 of the eye lid. With a small clean blending brush,  blend freak upward, above the eyelid. The best way to achieve this is in back a forth motions.
  4.  With some setting spray, wet the shade Asphyxia and pat onto the centre of the eyelid. With a blending brush of our choice. Blend Freakshow into Asphyxia until seamless.
  5. With a small detailer brush, blend Freakshow into the waterline.
  6. Apply a highlight of your choice into the brow bone area and clean up brow line.

Deep Blue Sea Eye Look

 

This was a rainy day look I did with the Too Faced Sweet Peach palette and the Urban Decay Vice XX Reloaded palette.

Because I was using cool tones as the main focus of this look I wanted to contrast it with a warm brown shade in the crease.

This look is great for green and brown eyed individuals.

Steps are as follow….

  1. With a fluffy blending brush, use the shade Peaches N Cream (Sweet Peach) and dust the lid entirely to the brow bone.
  2. Using an angled blending brush, take the shade Summer Yum (Sweet Peach) and buff into the crease going towards the inner eye.
  3. With a stiff small blending brush, place Talk Derby to Me  (Sweet Peach) in the crease and waterline. Use the “C” shape method on the upper lid.
  4. Using a flat top blending brush, pack on the shade 501(Vice XX Reloaded) on the centre lid into the inner eye. With a small detailer brush drag into the waterline.
  5. With a stiff concealer brush, line the brows and highlight with White Peach (Sweet Peach). With the same shade pat into the inner corner of the eye.
  6. Take a fluffy blending brush and highlight on top of White Peach (Sweet Peach) in the brow bone with Nectar (Sweet Peach).

I love this look because you get the highlighter on highlighter action to make the blues pop even more.
