Glam Couture Part I : Classic Smokey Eyes

Hey dolls,

Today's  makeup tutorial is a full on classic, black smokey eye. I paired this look with a bright pinkish purple matte lipstick, making this a gorgeous look for a summer party!

Enjoy the step by step tutorial, below!


  • NYX Pencil Jumbo Black Bean
  • MUFE Artist Palette Volume 1 – Nudes (S-102 Onyx, S-556 Taupe Gray, I-544 Pink Granite, I-528 Pearl)
  • MAC Eyeshadow Swiss Chocolate (reddish brown)
  • Cascada of Colours Black Eye Pencil (waterline)
  • False Eyelashes 
  • Maybelline Mascara- Black
  • White Loose Pigment (inner corner)
  • Sleek Makeup Matte Me Lipsick- Fandango Purple



  1. Apply a highlight beneath the brow bone. I’m using MUFE  Pearl from the Artist Palette. Then, apply black base over the entire eyelid. I’m using NYX’S Jumbo Pencil in Black Bean.
  2. Apply MAC’s Swiss Chocolate which is a reddish brown shade to the crease as a transitional base color.
  3. Then, apply MUFE in Taupe Gray over the lid. Blend.
  4. Layer a black eyeshadow over the taupe gray and apply on the lid. I used Onyx from the MUFE palette.
  5. Blend upwards towards the crease to soften the look.
  6. Apply MUFE Pink Granite to the brow bone and blend to soften the look. This will create a beautiful gradient effect and make the look more wearable and less harsh.
  7. Apply a black eye pencil to the lower lashline.
  8. Smudge MAC’s Swiss Chocolate + MUFE Onyx to the lower lashline.
  9. Apply false lashes and mascara.
  10. Finish with a shimmery white pigment to inner corners for a highlight.



Stay tuned for next week's post, which will be part II - highlight and contour in this Glam Couture series.
