Easy, Glamorous Makeup Look

I love using various eye shadows to create a cool look, but sometimes I just want a go to look that looks great with maybe 1 or 2 shadows. If you’re thinking the same thing then this look is perfect for you! I used only 2 shadows to create this subtle smokey eye. If you have any questions about the products I used, please comment below!

How to re-create the look:

Eyes: I applied my Lorac eye primer to my lids first. Then swept the buttery color from Nakeah Cosmetics in “Butter” all over my lids (This is from a local makeup boutique in West Hollywood that I love). The next part is the most fun! I used this NYX loose pearl powder in “Black Pearl” on the outer corners of my lids. At first, the color is very pigmented and a bit messy. I find the best method is to use a brush to concentrate the powder where I want it, and then I blended it into the butter color for a gradient. Blending is key!! I played around with that technique until I got the effect I want which. This look ends up being pretty matte with a hint of shimmer. Then I lined my eyes with this new Sumita eye pencil in charcoal from my Birchbox. Lastly, I apply a base coat of my Julep mascara, and a second coat of the Pop Beauty volumizing mascara for more drama.

Face: I kept it simple for this look. I primed my face with my favorite foundation primer — the Rimmel Pro Primer. It works just as good as any high end brand. Then, applied my MAC Studio Fix Fluid foundation all over with a flat top elf brush. To give my face some color I used this elf blush/bronzer combo to contour the edges of my face along with my cheek bones. I finished it off with some high definition powder to set the look.

Lips: I always like to pair a smokey eye with a nude lip. My all-time favorite lipstick is this one from MAC called “Hue.” It’s the perfect pinkish nude color. Also, not pictured here I used the NYX lip liner in Natural with some light pink lip gloss from Forever21’s love & beauty line.
