Hi Loves,

Welcome to this week's tutorial. I wanted to do a smokey eye but one with a little bit of color.

Here's a closeup of what I came up with:



Step 1: I used a dark base first. This is NYX Jumbo Pencil in Black Bean.

 Step 2: Blend out the pencil before it sets. Then, set with a translucent powder. I used Ben Nye Banana Powder.

Step 3: With a fluffy Brush, blend the blackout using Poison Plum from Sugarpill. 

Step 4: With a wet brush, add Darkest Night Shimmer from Star Crushed Minerals. Wait for it to dry before blending it out.

Step 5:  Blend.

Step 6: Next, add a small amount of glitter from Star Crushed Minerals, Can't Blend With Us to the center of the lid. I just dabbed it on with my finger.

Step 7: Next, I added a small wing. I used Inglot's AMC Gel liner#77 and set with Black from Star Crushed Minerals. Add Darkest Night Shimmer and Poison Plum to the lower lashline and blend out. 

Step 8: Add false lashes and add Darkest Night Shimmer to your waterline and you're done.
