Hey dolls,

There's so many endless and artistic looks you can create with the pencil technique and it really provides a very clean and polished application.

Although this is a very avante garde / editorial type of look, you can use the same technique to create a crisp and clean look but a more wearable version, of course.

This tutorial is great for beginners wanting to try out this technique.

Have fun and enjoy the tutorial!

  1. Using a white eye pencil, draw the outline of the desired look. Then, trace over the outer part using black to add dimension.
  2. Using a white eye base, I’ll be using Makeup Atelier Paris Watercolours today for the eye bases, fill in the rest of the lid area and blend evenly.
  3. Apply a bright pink eyeshadow above the design blending into the eyebrows and fading upwards.
  4. Apply white eyeshadow to the lid.
  5. Using the black eye pencil, begin shading. Then use black shadow to blend and soften the edges.
  6. Apply white diamond powder to the center part of the lid for a touch of sparkle.
  7. Using black eye pencil, sketch a wavy inverted ‘s’ shape on the outer edge of the eye, extending from the outer, upper lashline.
  8. Add the pink shadow below the design. Blend to diffuse the edges.
  9. Now, apply purple shadow to the outer part of the eye, blending into the pink. This will add dimension and create a gradient effect.
  10. Soften the outer edges with a light application of pink shadow and make sure to blend and soften the look.
  11. Apply false lashes.
  12. Line the upper and lower lashline with black liner.
  13. Finish with mascara.
  14. Optional: Embellish the look with jeweled gems and glitter! 
  15. Lips: For the ombre lips, I outline the lips with red lipliner and filled them in. Then using a violet lipliner, I outline the outer edges and corners, creating small 'v' to add dimension. Finally, I filled in the center of the lips with a bright red lipstick.
