Sultry Blue Black Eye Makeup

Here's another makeup makeover I did to my friend last week. I was so excited and can't wait to share with all my blog readers. I chose blue eyeshadow color - MAC pigment in Bell Bottom Blue just to match her clothing colors and I also mixed with black eyeshadow color to the outer corner of her eyes using my Coastal Scents palette. The purpose is to give shape to the eyes. My friend has a square face shape. So, I decided to contour and highlight her face with bronzer just to bring out her cheek bones, her nose, slim her face and get rid of her double chin. Blending is key in contouring face. The idea is that you can't see where the contouring starts and stops. Instead of using bronzer, darker and lighter blusher/foundation also can be used for this purposes.

Here's a few shots I took After makeup

Her eyes really popped!! Okay, here's what I did. I lined the whole top lids with Kate Liquid Eyeliner (liquid eyeliner) and the whole bottom lids with Kate Super Sharp Liner (liquid eyeliner) at first. Then, I applied MAC Eye Kohl Smolder (eye pencil) after that. I dragged the eye pencil gently and lightly from the outer to the middle bottom lids. Then, I smudged the bottom lids (which I lined with eye pencil just now) with a brush, just to get the smokey effect...

Ohh, I love her smokey eyes look. DO you apply the liquid eyeliner on the bottom eyelids too? I think you said you apply the liquid eyeliner first then use the eye I right? I don't know how to line my eyes correctly to define the eyes without looking like a raccoon. Thanks for your advise

Yes, you are right... I used liquid eyeliner for both upper and lower lids. The reason why I used the whole bottom lids with Kate Super Sharp Liner is that it doesn't smudge/waterproof and long wearing...Hope it helps!!!
