Contoured Smoky Eye

Here is a tutorial for an eyeshadow look I do quite often - it's all about a smoky eye that's exaggerating the natural contours of your eye. You can make it colourful if you like, just swap the greys for purple, blue, et cetera.



Finish by using your best perfect-skin foundation combination - I used MAC Prep & Prime with SPF50, Illamasqua Rich Liquid Foundation, MAC Studio Fix Powder, MAC Strobe Cream, and MAC Fix+. Keep the blush pale and concentrate more on contour then on colour - I used MAC Well Dressed and Strada. Finish with a pink-nude lip, so it's not really nude, but has a blush to it - I used MAC Please Me, which is a really pigmented matte lipstick. Lovely!

  9. this has nothing to do with the article but I saw Odilon's fall-winter 2010-2011 lookbook and I was stunned by the similarities with you. The hair style and the face of the model, but also her look and style. I'm pretty sure you'll enjoy.
