In this workshop we’ll learn how to blend out a smoky eye in both daytime and dramatic evening (or performance) versions. We’ll go over the basic techniques of how to apply and blend your eye shadow for a smoky eye that you can apply to any color combination. It’s all in the blend!
Here is a list of products to bring to the workshop, along with some suggestions for specific products if you do not already have some of these in your makeup bag.
- Eyelid Primer – E.L.F. makes a great one, as well as Milani and Wet n’ Wild
- Your choice of a selection of eye shadows – choose at least three shades in light, medium and dark in complimentary colors
- A matte eye shadow that matches your skin tone – you can also use pressed powder for this
- Kajal style eyeliner pencil in black – I love the NYX Slide on Eye Pencil, they stay put once they set
- Flat shader eye shadow brush – check out one from E.L.F. or Sonia Kashuk
- Crease brush – Try up & up or Essence of Beauty
- Smudge Brush – E.L.F. Smudge Brush (this is a medium size) or Sonia Kashuk Core Tools Smudge Brush – No 105 (this is a much smaller brush)
- Eyelash curler (optional)
- False eyelashes – These demi-wispies are my favorite
- Eyelash adhesive – The Revlon Precision Lash Adhesive in dark works well and is latex free (they also have a clear)
- Makeup wipes
