A different smokey eye...

Hi Everyone! Shock Horror Sara finally has a tutorial up! I know, I know... BAD Blogger. The sad thing is that I have no excuse really... This look has no story or purpose, I was just playing around and this is how it ended up! Well lets get started!

I began by applying uDPP in Eden all ove the lid and filling in my brows with Catrice Starlight Espresso.

Taking this Inglot shadow 501 on a flat shader I packed this all over the moving lid.

Next, on the same brush, from the Mariposa palette I took the colour Mushroom (my fave by far) and applied this to the outer corner in a sharp V-shape.

Next on a stiff blending brush, I took the colour rockstar and applied it in the crease directly over Mushroom, blending out the edges.

Taking a little bit of both Mushroom and rockstar under the lower lashline.

You guys know I love a matte highlight, and for this I used Inglot #351.

Now for a fun pop of colour! I took Haight and placed it in the inner corner. I find adding a bright blue in the inner corner always transforms any look into a more catwalky look.

Some black liner on the lower and upper waterline and tons of Clinique High Impact Mascara. I decided to skip liner on top for this one, part laziness and part wanting to do something different (I ALWAYS do liner on top). Ardell Wispies Lashes.

Shape of my hair! I didnt realise how awful it looked hahah. Much Love xxx

  2. Super pretty eye makeup, I'm loving the blue in it, makes it pop like crazy!

  5. Oh wow! Not your usual smokey eye but I would definitely try this for a night out! I love how it emphasizes your beautiful eyes x

  6. You know what? You really have that Urban Decay edgy approach to make-up. You should definitely be their make-up artist!
