Smokey Eyes for Asian Eyes


3a 4a 5a 6a Processed with VSCOcam

Some Products I Used:

1) MAC Eyeshadow in Texture –  This eyeshadow was applied on her crease. Before applying the eyeshadow, I applied a liquid concealer in matte finish all over her eyelids as the base.

2) MAC Eyeshadow in Espresso – I used this shade for the inner eyelids as the base of Eyeshadow #4.

3) MAC Eyeshadow in Embark – A matte dark brown eyeshadow which I applied on the outer corner of the eyes.

4) MAC Eyeshadow in Woodwinked – This eyeshadow has a metallic shine. I decided to use this on the top of the matte brown eyeshadow (#2) just to give dimension and texture to her eyelids. (It changes the color as you can see in her eyes).

5) MAC pressed pigment in Jet Couture  – It has a pretty sparkle which I applied on the top of the dark brown eyeshadow (#3) as I blended it to the crease.

6) MAC pressed pigment in Warming Heart – For inner corners of the eyes.

7) L’oreal Liquid Eyeliner – Before I applied this liquid eyeliner, I applied MAC gel liner in blacktrack on the underline of her upper lash line so there would be no space visible when the eyes are open.

8) Rimmel eyeliner in flesh – Used for her waterline to make her eyes look bigger.

9) NYC dark brown pencil liner – I applied this pencil liner to outline her lower lashline. I blended it in using a pointed brush with an eyeshadow #1

10) MAC Face and Body Foundation

11) MAC  brush 287 – I used this for applying cream concealer. I used Bobbi Brown creamy concealer which gives enough coverage for her under eyes.

12) MAC brush 227 – After I applied the concealer, I used this brush to apply the loose powder #13. I gently pressed the skin with this brush and blended it well.

13) Naturactor Powder

14) MAC blush in Royal Sunset

15) Hard Candy Highlighter Powder in Hula Hula – This is a great highlighter powder that you can find in the drugstore. It adds a soft pigment to the skin.

Makeup Tip: I think most important technique in creating smokey eyes (or any kind of eye makeup) is to tightline the underline of the upper lash line. I like to use gel liner or eye pencil. For those who aren’t familiar with this technique, please visit this link or watch the tutorials from Youtube Gurus like DafyneMebella and The MakeupChair.

Special thanks to my sister-in-law, Suki, for modeling for me.
