Beginner Series : Easy Wearable Smokey Eye Tutorial

Hello everyone. Today I have an easy smokey eye tutorial for you all! To make it even easier for beginners to follow, all the products I'm using are from the Beginner drugstore Starter Makeup Kit I have posted a few days ago. That means that the look uses minimal products and is very affordable. Therefore anyone can achieve this easily! Let's start with the tutorial :)

In this tutorial I'll show you how to achieve this
easy smokey eye look!

For this look, I'm using the Wet n Wild Silent Treatment trio. It's the perfect everyday smokey eye in my opinion. 

This is an easy tutorial, in fact I'm using the color exactly how the company suggests you use it. The taupe on the lid, the dark brown in the crease and the pink for the brow bone.

Keep reading if you would like to learn how to achieve this super easy smokey eye! ♥


Step 1 

Using a flat shading brush, apply the purple-taupe color all over the lid. The ideal way to apply this color to get it to be saturated and as pigmented as possible is to apply it using a patting motion. You can prime the eye using concealer underneath to get an even better result. Don't go all the way up in the crease, really keep the color concentrated on the moving part of the lid.

 Step 2 

 With the same brush, apply the color to the lower lash line going all the way to the tear duct.

Step 3

Using a fluffy blending brush, apply the dark brown using a circle motion. Concentrate most of the color in the outer part of the lid. Gradually bring the color into the crease and then using a windshield wiper motion, bring the color forward. Clean the brush using a tissue and the start blending the edges again with the same technique. Try not to bring the color up too much.

Step 4

Clean off the remaining taupe shadow from the flat shading brush. Now using the pink shimmery color from the palette apply the color to the brow bone area. You can also apply it to the tear duct area to make the eyes looks brighter, bigger and more awake (se the same brush for that process as well). In this tutorial, I chose to highlight the tear duct.

Step 5 

Using a soft black liner pencil, line the upper lash line as close as possible to the lash line. Bring the liner about three quarters of the way in. It doesn't have to be perfectly smooth at this stage. Then, using an angled brush, smudge out the liner to make it even and a little softer. The end result should be subtle. You want to accentuate the lash line to make your lashes look fuller, but you don't want the liner to be obvious for this look.

I'm using Milani Liquif'Eye liner for this step.
It will set it you let it sit for a while, but it is soft
to begin with, which allows you to smudge it out a bit.
This is the brush I'm using to smudge out the liner

Step 6

Add your favorite mascara to the upper and bottom lashes to finish up the makeup. I have chosen the Cover Girl Clump Crusher Mascara for this look. You can also conceal underneath your eyes now if you hadn't before. I recommend waiting after your done to do it since you might get some fallout with the darker Wet n Wild shadows.



Here is the finished look ! It's quite subtle and wearable for a smokey eye which is what I love about this palette. It's easy and great for everyday!
