Makeup: Spring Smokey Eye Look

Sandys-makeover.jpg

Today I'm featuring a makeup makeover I did on over the weekend for Sandy who was attending a masquerade party.  Sandy messaged me on Facebook after seeing one of my makeovers. Her goal was to achieve a look that enhanced her features and was perfect for the occasion yet looked natural. The look was a "Spring inspired smokey eye" using Vera Moore Cosmetics, Clinique and BH Cosmetics palette.  Sandy is not a makeup wearer  and so she was a bit nervous about her session; that was until she saw the finished product.  This look is completely wearable, making it perfect for a night on the town or for some daytime drama.

Get this spring smokey eye look

  • First I prepped the skin using a clarifying lotion, then applied a primer.
  • I then used a concealor to cover blemishes, before applying foundation to balance skin tone.
  • Fill in the eye brows using a brow brush and a dark brown eye shadow.
  • Apply a semi-matte soft shadow all over the lid and to highlight the brow bone.
  • Then apply a matte charcoal shade to the outer "V" of the eye and blend towards the end of the brow.
  • To the inner part of the lid, apply green shadow (be sure to tap the excess powder off the brush) and blend towards the outer V.
  • Line and darken the upper lash line using a black eye pencil, then blend green eye shadow to the lower lash line
  • Apply a touch of blush to the cheeks, then brush a bit of powder over the face (especially in the T-zone area).
  • I used contour color around the edges of her face to highlight her beautiful complexion.
  • Apply one coat of waterproof mascara.
  • To balance the look, I lined her lips with a taupe pencil and finished with shimmery nude lipstick.

The finished look, a transitional spring day-to-night smokey eye look.
