Are you going out with the girls tonight? This tutorial will show you how to achieve the magnificent cut crease eye effect shimmery shadows for glamorous finish. Do not worry if you are a beginner at applying makeup, everything is explained! Are you ready? Let’s start with the first step of this going out smoky eye tutorial.
Step 1: It is annoying when you achieve the perfect smoky eye only for it to smudge onto your upper lid. To help prevent this, use an eye makeup primer first, as this can keep your eye makeup from transferring. Then, apply black eye pencil to your upper lash line and waterline. Make sure you outline your eye thoroughly for a more dramatic effect.
Step 2: Then, use flat eyeshadow brush to apply a shimmery whitish-gold powder over your eyelid for a sheer wash of colour that gives off a gold cast.
Step 3: Use the same black pencil to trace the crease line. Keep your eyes open when applying the crease shade, as this will help you recreate the illusion of a crease with ease. Do not worry if the line is not perfect, you will smudge it later on anyway. It is best to choose a nice creamy formula as it will help in easy blending the product afterwards.
Step 4: Smudge the pencil with a blending brush in circular motions.
Step 5: Apply dark brown eyeshadow to the outer part of the crease, carefully blending the colour with the brush.
Step 6: Add a dab of the light pink shadow on the centre of the eyelid with a damp brush for an extra pop of colour. Apply some of that light pink shadow to the brow bone as well.
Step 7: Outline and fill in your eyebrows. Brow powders work wonders to bridge the gaps, especially if your brows have been over-tweezed. Start by using short, light strokes that mimic the length of your eyebrow hairs. Using a pigmented powder to fill and define brows is one of the easiest ways to achieve a natural looking finish.
Step 8: Your smoky effect is not complete without hot eyelashes! Use tweezers to place the strip on your eyelid, positioning it as close as possible to your natural lashes. As a final touch, coat top and bottom lashes with waterproof mascara. This will also help in blending your natural lashes with the false ones. You can even try mascara that contains a little bit of sparkle!
