Smokey Eyes Tutorial (Sigma Paris Palette)

Happy Monday!

I'm back today with a simple make up tutorial! I have to say I am not so much of a smokey eye wearer, however if I do, I'll make sure it has a pop of colour or that it is bright enough so that my eyes don't disappear in the dark make up.

Most people find that smokey eye make up is hard to achieve, however if you try to complete your eyes before the rest of the make up, this will give you the freedom to clean up with Qtip + make up remover.

Today's look

Base completed (because I was out earlier during the day) and tight line + upper lash line

Products used:

MAC Mineralize Blush in Daft Pink

NYC Bronzer in Sunny

Prestige My Blackest Lashes Mascara; Physicians Formula Eye Brightening Eyeliner

MAC Lipstick in Ever Hip

Tools used:

Steps required:

Use the Sigma Eye Shading E55 brush to apply colour "Eiffel" (Black with sparkles) on the outer corner of the lid and drag it along the lash line. Remember to keep looking back up into the mirror with eyes open to find out where you want the black to end.

Like so :)

Apply next colour in the centre of the lid

Apply colour "Triomphe"(green gray) in the centre of the lid to create ombre effect. This prevents your entire eye to just be covered in black.

Final eyeshadow application

Apply colour "Orsay" (Bright green) in the inner corner of the lid and lower lash line. Use the colour sequence like before to line the rest of the lower lash line too.


Blended look + eyeshadow and mascara!

Apply highlight colour underneath the brows and a little bit on the inner corner as required.

Feel free to reapply any eyeshadow that you find necessary to make it look more vibrant. Apply eyeliner and mascara. Finish off with a nude/peach shade lipstick and your favourite blush!

Thank you for reading and I'll see you tomorrow :D
