How to Achieve Smoky Eye Makeup:

1) First, clean face with make-up remover and tone skin. Next, moisturize face with oil control lotion, and let it dry for 1-2 minutes.
2) Prime face with make-up primer base (long lasting makeup and oil control). Dilute cream or liquid foundation with primer to reduce thickness and make coverage last.
3) Apply concealer under the eyes and on uneven skin area. Finish by setting foundation with loose powder (kabuki brush).
4) Fill in eyebrows with eyeshadow and enhance and define brow shape arch and tail with sharp eyebrow pencil. Highlight underneath/above eyebrow with matte cream eyeshadow and prime eyelids with eyeshadow base (cream shimmer).
5) Set eyelids with cream matte shadow. Apply small amount of black eyeshadow along the eyeliner and then gradually move up towards eyelid crease.
6) Slowly blend and increase black eyeshadow intensity at eyeliner and crease area (top and bottom lashes). Use fingers to blend in dark harsh lines along eyelid crease area, use makeup sponge to clean excessive shadow smearing.
7) Use creamy black smooth eyeliner pencil and smudge in with q-tip (top and bottom lashes). Trim full strip eyelashes according to eye size, massage eyelash strip create easy crescent.
8)Curl eyelashes with eyelash curler in three locations (base, middle, and tip for even curved crescent curl)
9) Apply one sweep of black mascara on top of the lash and bottom of real lashes for nice lash shape. Use dark tone color eyelash glue, let dry for 2-3 minutes and wait for tacky consistency before applying on eyeliner
10) Apply full strip eyelashes, right above natural eyelashes, and let dry for 5 minutes. Dab a small amount cream blush at apples of cheeks and blend out with fingers
11) Set blush with blush powder by applying in small circle motions on apples of cheeks.
12) Highlight with face with lighter shade of concealer/foundation on t-zone area, underneath eyes, laugh lines, then blend with fingers). Use powder brush to set highlighted only areas highlight with translucent powder
13) Line lips with neutral color lip liner, then fill in whole lips liner for long lasting color.
14) Apply nude color lip color with lip brush on lips, and then peach lip gloss
15) Make sure eyelashes are fully dry and apply black liquid eyeliner with eyeliner brush over eyelashes to define eyeliner line and cover excessive glue
16) Wait for liner to dry, 1 minute, then apply 1-2 coats of mascara underneath eyelashes and press both natural lash and false eyelashes together for better bonding with fingers and natural look.

  • My colleague used Lipocils. Her lashes look beautiful. I guess I also start to use it.

  • Incredibly well constructed post. Keep up the great work.

  • I had blue rings under the eye as well. I assume the reason why I got them was the fact that I typically don’t sleep and recover enough. To date, I’ve already applied quite plenty of the typical treatments and unluckily most didn’t cure the problem after all. Making use of a cold dual-chamber tea bag with green or black tea is useful to calm your eye and it also tightens the veins beneath gentle skin in your face. So that suggestion tends to work quite well. Additionally it is a very good recommendation to at all times supply your body with sufficient healthy water to ensure correct water supply for your whole body. Sticking to a consistent rhythm for sleeping and staying up is definitely also very important to keep your own eye adn the skin close to the eyes healthy and good-looking.
