My First Tutorial!

Jun 3, 2010

I decided to post my first tutorial. I did a purple smokey eye since purple's my favorite color. You can substitute for any color you want though. I hope to get better at this as I go along. Anynconstructive criticism or comments on how to improve are greatly appreciated! Also if you have any requests, just let me know! Thanks for Watching!

Products Used:
TooFaced Shadow Insurance
Coastal Scents 88 Eyeshadow Palette

E.L.F Eyeshadow Brush
Upstage Beauty Precision Brush
E.L.F Blending Brush
Essence of Beauty Domed Eyeshadow Brush
E.L.F Blending Brush

Here's a picture of the palette and brushes I used (I numbered them in the order I used them) with a  brief description of how I used each brush:

1. eyeshadow brush-typical eyeshadow brush. I used it to apply the base color, great for packing on color.
2. precision brush-this brush has a fine tip, used it to define the crease and outer v w/ the black and for applying dark purple to the lower lashline.
3. this fluffy blending brush was used for applying the dark purple and for blending it in with the black to soften the look.
4.domed eyeshadow brush-used it to apply highlight and also to blend the highlight with the crease
5. blending brush-used it to blend all over
6. (not pictured) angled eye brush-used it to smudge black shadow on top of the eyeliner to smoke it out.
