Sultry Smokey Eye Look

Sunday, 11 September 2011


A simple sultry smokey eye for an evening out! Similar to my Antiqued Tutorial, but this one's a little smokier, and I darkened the waterline a little to emulate an Arabic Look. Hope you like! :)

Love this look... Do you have a mirror in front of you while filming or you do your makeup in the camera?

Ava said...

thanks for posting this wonderful, instructive video! I'm going to try your eye shadow application technique soon. I've never thought of using the pencils I have as a base.

Veronica said...

This is a gorgeous look!
I think anything in the wine/burgundy family really looks great with your skintone. You look like a model in the first pic!

sidebar: I don't personally know you of course but since I've been following your blog and from what I've seen within your blog & YT channel, you seem to have grown so much from when you first started. You seem like a wonderful young lady. (I said that like I'm such an old lady but I'm sure you get the drift...LOL) Keep doing what you're doing! Many blessings!

I just started to read your blog and I love it. You are so beautiful and talented. I'm a 17 year old girl from Norway and I've only been to London once. So I was wondering if you would blog about how your everyday is? I mean with pictures of your family and friends :) How it is to live in London, what you do there, where you go etc..

S.P. said...

Lovely tutorial. I admire the way you do make up and wish I had the patience to learn to do eye make up.
