For the Smokey Eyes

I first prepped my eyes using Urban Decay eyeshadow primer potion in shade ‘Eden’.  Also, I put Covergirl loose powder under my eyes to catch any fall out from the eyeshadows.  Then using a M.A.C 239 brush I applied M.A.C eyeshadow in shade ‘Carbon’ on the eyelid area.


Then using the same brush I applied M.A.C pigment in shade ‘softwash grey’ over the area where we applied the black eyeshadow.


Then using M.A.C 275 brush I applied M.A.C pro longwear eyeshadow in shade ‘Fresh Flare’ on the crease and then blend with M.A.C 224 brush so that both eyeshadow blend properly without any visible harsh lines.


Then using a clean M.A.C 275 brush I applied M.A.C eyeshadow in shade ‘Goldenrod’ over the crease where I applied the green eyeshadow. Make sure to blend the eyeshadows properly else it could end up looking weird. Next, using a M.A.C 224 brush I applied M.A.C eyeshadow ‘Naked Lunch’ over the brow bone. This will work as a highlighter. 

Then I lined my water line with Revlon Colorstay eyeliner in shade black. 

Next, using a flat top brush liner brush I again took M.A.C eyeshadow ‘carbon’ and applied on lower lash line. 

Then using M.A.C 219 brush I applied M.A.C pro longwear ‘Fresh Flare’ eyeshadow and applied on the outer half of lower lash line. Then using a clean M.A.C 219 brush apply M.A.C pigment ‘softwash grey’ near the tear duct area. Next I applied false eyelashes to give a dramatic look. After applying false eyelashes I used CoverGirl Lash blast mascara to blend my lashes with the false lashes. 


For the  rest of the face
 Olay active hydrating beauty fluid,
 M.A.C prep+prime skin base.
 Diorskin Nude liquid foundation in shade ‘Honey Beige’
Revlon colorstay foundation in shade ‘True Beige’ under the eyes
Revlon Photoready powder in shade Light/Medium over the areas where I applied ‘True Beige’
