Create it Yourself - Pink Smokey Eye Make-Up Look



Products used:

  • Lancome - Teint Idole Ultra 24hr
  • MAC Pigments - Pink Opal, Fuchsia, Bright Fuchsia
  • MAC Studio Fix
  • Body Shop Palette - Black Eyeshadow
  • Body Shop eyebrow kit
  • MUA Blusher - Shade 1
  • MUA Lip Balm - Sweet Lips
  • MAC Sheen Supreme Lipstick - Royal Azalea
  • Real Techniques Brushes



First I applied moisturizer, Teint Idole Ultra 24hr evenly all over the face with Real Techniques foundation brush, because this foundation brush isn't as large as other foundation brushes I find I can do a swirling motion to apply my foundation it gives a brilliant finish. I then set my face with MAC Studio Fix.


Starting with the lightest colour first on the inner eye I patted then spread MAC Fuchsia Pigment across the full eyelid, I then patted on the Bright Fuchsia MAC Pigment about a quarter of the way out from the inner eye and blended well into the Fuchsia colour. Next I added the black three quarters of the way out from the inner eye, when I got to the outer corner of the eye I used a slanted brush to apply the black diagonally to get a perfect straight point. I arched the black sort of in a 'C' shape around the Bright Fuchsia colour, I also took the black quite high more so to the raising of my eyebrow bone. For a highlighter I applied Pink Opal MAC Pigment below my eyebrows. I then went over the colours and blended really well adding more pigment where I needed to, using MAC Fluidline I followied the flick along the edge I had already created with the black eyeshadow. I finished the eyes off by brushing in my eyebrows using the Body Shop Eyebrow Kit.

TIP: when using pigments/loose powder eyeshadows use a patting motion you will have less excess and will get the most out of your colour and blending becomes a lot easier. If you want to intensify the colour even more damp your eyeshadow brush then dip into pigment/loose powder.


Next I've applied MUA Lip Balm in the shade 'Sweet Lips' as my lips dry out very quick with lipsticks secondly I've applied  MAC Sheen Supreme Lipstick in shade Royal Azalea. I blended both lip products in really well with a lip brush. Final step of this look I applied MUA Blusher in Shade 1which is a gorgeous light pink.

TIP: If you have lips like mine they can be really hard to maintain, so applying Vaseline/lip balms before your lipstick really help keep your lips in tip top condition or even by applying a lipgloss over. If you want to really define your lips use a matching lip liner first then apply lip products. If you want a plumped look then apply gloss just to the middle of the lips.

 Hope you enjoyed this post will try do more tutorials. =]
