Intense Neutral Smoky Eye Makeup Look: Makeup Breakdown (FOTD)

One of my recent fashion posts, Stripes and Plus Size, has become really popular. I did for a cause I totally believe in, Stand Up Against Body Shaming. And I am so grateful for the response I received for my look as well as my work. I got a lot of compliments when I was wearing a similar makeup look the other day so I have decided to do a makeup breakdown post today. It is not very difficult to create and looks really flattering in my opinion. Without further ado, let’s get started!

Makeup breakdown:

  1. Start with a good quality eyeshadow primer. It will help create a smooth base for the eyeshadow and also make it last longer. (The Body Shop InstaBlur All in One Eye Primer + Concealer)
  2. Use a cream-ish matte/satin finish eyeshadow all over the eyelid up to the brow bone. It will help bring light to the eyes! Then add a taupe shade to the crease and blend it in the windshield wiper motion. Add a plum-y brown color to above the crease as the transition color. (Shades – Dune, Paper Bag, Maple fromĀ Sleek i-Divine Mineral Based Eye Shadow palette – Ultra Mattes V2)
  3. Use a shimmer-y n*de eyeliner to the inner corner of the eyes and also add it under the lower lashline to create the bambi eyes look. (Etude House Play101 Pencil #6)
  4. Apply a n*de eyeliner to the waterline to open up the eyes. (Misslyn Skin Corrector 3)
  5. Define the eyes using an intense black liquid liner. (L’Oreal Paris Super Liner Carbon Gloss)
  6. Curl your lashes and apply a generious coat of mascara to the top and bottom lashes. (Fairydrops the Platinum Waterproof mascara)
  7. Use a medium coverage BB cream to even out the skintone. (It’s Skin Prestige Creme D’escargot BB cream)
  8. Apply a high coverage concealer on under eye area and blemishes. (MAC Select Cover Up concealer – NW35)
  9. Set the concealer and BB cream using a translucent powder. (Missha The Style Fitting Wear Cashmere Powder – No.2 Natural Beige)
  10. Define your cheekbones using a contouring powder or matte bronzer. (Benefit Hoola Bronzer)
  11. Use a light pink or peach cream blush to add color to the cheeks. (Canmake Cream Cheek #13)
  12. Add some glow to high points of the face using a liquid highlighter (Etude House Golden Ratio Face Glam highlighter #2)
  13. Define your eyebrows and fill them in using a brown eyebrow pencil or powder. (Maybelline Fashion Brow Duo Shaper – Brown)
