Hello readers! Welcome back to my blog and thank you for reading! Today’s post is going to be on a really quick eye look I did the other night, perfect for when you want some definition but don’t want to go too heavy. I created a smoked out winged liner using only eyeshadow which gives it a soft, smokey look while still keeping the definition of a sharp line. I used all neutral, matte tones for this look, but feel free to swap any colours to make this look your own. If you’re interested in seeing how I created this look, please keep reading! (Below I have inserted a short video clip of the eye look if you are interested in seeing the application)
To begin the look, I took about a pinky length of scotch tape and placed it from the outer corner of my eye, towards the tail of my brow to achieve an outline of a perfected crisp eyeliner.
Following along the outer corner of the eye and over the edge of the tape, I applied Mac’s eyeshadow in, “Embark” using a Sigma E25 blending brush. By adding various neutral tones, this will create a seamless blended look- ultimately leading to the gradient effect.
I then used the shadow ME-512 from the Make Up Forever Artist Palette- Volume 1 (you can use any matte black eyeshadow) and followed this tightly along the outer corner of the eye and along the tape where you would generally apply winged liner. I used the same Sigma E25 brush to apply this as well.
For the inner portion of the lid, I used my favourite nude eyeshadow which is from the BH Cosmetics Carli Bybel Palette Palette. Taking this on a Vera Mona flat shader brush, I applied this on the inner portion of the lid up until where we placed Mac “Embark”. This really tied in the entire gradient look.
To add some more definition to the lash line, I took Inglot AMC Gel Liner in #77 and lined this very thin along the lash line to create some more depth. I then applied my Ardell “Wisipie” lashes to finish off the look. I add some lower lash mascara but left the lash line free of shadow as I wanted the winged shadow to be the main focus.
And that completes the look! Thank you for taking the time to read today, I hope you enjoyed this super simple eye look.
