jjjSoft an natural smokey eye
I love a clean and classic look. A soft neutral smokey eye goes a long way, and can be the perfect way to enhance the eye just enough to look great in person as well as on camera, making this a great choice for your wedding day! To keep the look as natural as possible stay away from va va voom colors, choose Earth tone combinations. Earth tone combinations can vary from browns to greys and greens, keeping your eye color in mind find the tones that will compliment you the best.
Gianna has great eye space. Taking that into consideration along with her eye coloring I thought it would be best to work with a Brown Palette. I created this soft natural look so that the shadows would compliment her hazel eyes while keeping the eye space bright and open.
To create this look a few things are needed;
1. Urban Decay Eye shadow Primer Potion
2. Makeup Forever HD Foundation
3. Bobbi Brown Shadow in Bone
4. Makeup Forever Shadow in #76, #17, #306
5. Maybelline The Falsies in Very Black
6. Disposable Mascara Wands
7. Makeup sponge
8 Ardell Individuals in Black
9. Brow Brush
10. Mac Brush #224, #275
Begin by applying a thin layer of eye shadow primer to the entire lid. This will help block oils and keep the shadows in place. Next apply a thin layer of foundation, this will create a flawless canvas. Now you can start with your shadows, use Bobbi Browns Bone shadow and apply to the entire lid, now place Makeup Forever’s #17 on the lid. Pat the shadow into place and then blend shadow. Once shadow has been blended the next step is to create your crease, take Makeup Forever #76 with a crease brush apply shadow directly into crease by moving brush back and forth. Next use Makeup Forever #306 by placing into the inner corner and blending the shadow right above the crease, now take your bone shadow and sweep the color under the brow and blend into crease as well. Next use #17 to create a smokey liner and add a few individual lashes to the lash line, apply a coat of black mascara, fill in brows and comb through. Final step, use #76 and sweep shadow under the lower lash line, and apply another coat of mascara to the top and bottom lash line.
