Classic Smokey Eye Tutorial

IMG_4647 IMG_4644 IMG_4645 IMG_4646

I was off camping last week, so I haven’t blogged in a bit, but I’m back! Today, I will be doing a class smokey eye tutorial using the Covergirl eyeenhancers palette in smoke alarm, the Maybelline New York expertwear eye shadow palette in velvet crush, and the Maybelline New York eyestudio gel eyeliner in blackest black, and L’oreal Paris telescopic shocking extensions mascara in blackest black. This is a very bold smokey eye, but it can be toned down with more blending, and/or using one of the palettes instead of two.

Step 1:
I apply the third shade (they are not numbered) of the Covergirl palette all over my eyelids with a shader brush. I then blend it in using the same brush.

Step 2:
I apply the first shade of the Covergirl palette in my crease with a sweeping motion, using my blender brush, and blend it in with the same brush.

Step 3:
I apply the second shade from the Covergirl palette,on the brow bone, using a shader brush. I blend it in using a blending brush in a sweeping motion.

Step 4:
I apply shade 2 of the Maybelline palette, all over the lid, but put a more concentrated amount in the middle of my eyelids, for a more bold look,using a shader brush blending in as I go.

Step 5:
I repeat step 4 using shade 1 of the Maybelline palette.

Step 5:
I apply shade 4 of the Maybelline palette in the crease using a blending brush in a sweeping motion, blending as I go.

Step 6:
I apply shade 3 of the Maybelline palette on the brow bone using the blending brush, blending as I go.

Step 7:
I apply Maybelline gel eye liner to my lower lash line carefully, using a fine liner brush.

Step 8:
I apply L’oreal Paris mascara to my top and bottom lashes.

Review of Quo blending sponge and beauty blender dupe

I will be reviewing the Quo blending sponge today. It is a dupe for the beauty blender, at a much cheaper price. At first, I thought it was a bit silly spending so much on a makeup sponge, until I found Quo’s version. It has a rounded end, and a pointed end, and comes in at the middle. It is purple. It’s actually kind of cute looking. The beauty blender, on the other hand, comes in pink, black and white, and is round on one end and pointed on the other. The Quo version is only $5, in comparison to the upwards of $25 for the beauty blender. Honestly, I’ve watched videos, and it seems to do the same thing. Even $5 seems a lot for a sponge,but this thing actually works. It creates a somewhat airbrushed look, simply by wetting the sponge, spotting some foundation over one’s face, and bouncing the sponge all over, until everything is blended in. It definitely could replace a few makeup brushes, as the pointed end works well for applying concealer under the eyes, and around the nose. I recommend this product highly, as a beauty blender dupe, that just might replace a couple face brushes.

I used covergirl trublend liquid makeup in ivory1 for my photos in this post. Photo on 2014-05-11 at 4.46 AM #2
