Beauty Tip: Dark & Sexy Smoldering Eye

Kouturekiss - A Dark And Smoldering Eye For The Light Skinned Blue Eyed Girl

Today I am going to be showing you how to get a sexy sultry smokey eye. I was inspired by Jennifer Love Hewitt who defines sexiness and is known for her sultry smokey eyes. So instead of focusing on just a basic black smokey eye I wanted to do a golden, bronzy eye that suits light skin tones and light-colored eyes.
  1. The first thing you are going to want to do is Prime your eye. This will help your eyeshadow stay all day or all night. I am using the Too Faced Shadow Insurance, but any primer you enjoy will do. You are going to need the Urban Decay Naked palate This will help create this amazing look. You are going to want to take a stiff shadow brush and use Half Baked from the palette and place the shadow on the inner half of the lid. Then you are going to take the shadow right next to it in Smog on the other side of that stiff brush and place that on the outer half of your lid.
  2. Take a stiff crease brush and you are going to take the color “Naked” and apply that in the crease and a little bit above the crease to help blend everything.
  3. Use the color “Creep” and apply that to the outer “V” which is the outer part of the crease and blending it to the eye lid. Which will add to the smokey effect on the eye.
  4. Now you are going to take the lightest color in the palette which is Virgin and apply that top your brow bone to highlight it.
  5. Next, take whatever black eyeliner you want and apply that to your upper lash line and your lower waterline.
  6. Apply your favorite volumizing mascara to fill out your lashes.
  7. Take a smudging brush with creep and apply that to your lower lash line and then take a big fluffy brush with Virgin and apply that to your inner corner.
How easy was that?! This look is great for day or night time, and suits so many shades of blue eyes. This look can easily be changed with a great set of false lashes and a few coats of mascara! I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and have fun playing with your bronzy smokey eyes.
