'Smoked Out Electric' Look

'Smoked Out Electric' Look

So here goes round two of my smoky eye practice sessions. I am trying to minimize the time it takes to do the eye look for a video tutorial....but alas smoky looks take a while to create because they HAVE to be BLENDED out seamlessly....and let's be real ladies...BLACK does not blend easily... : )

Fingers crossed I'll get the video up tomorrow. (Yes I am getting very pale as well)


I started off with Too Faced Shadow Insurance Eyeshadow Primer all over my lid up to the brow bone. I applied NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Black all over my lid as my primary base. Sonia Kashuk Large Crease Brush

On the lid and crease I applied Rock & Republic Fatalistic Eye Color (matte black). Sigma Medium Angled Shading E70 Brush & Sonia Kashuk Large Crease Brush
Next on the inner lid and crease I applied Rock & Republic Electric Eye Color (shimmery blue). MAC 242 Shader Brush
On the inner tearduct area I applied MAC Grain Eyeshadow (frosty nude). MAC 239 Eye Shader Brush
On the browbone area and for blending I used MAC Wild By Nature Eyeshadow (matte camel). MAC Large 252 Shader Brush
For highlight I used MAC Ricepaper Eyeshadow (shimmery champagne). MAC Large 252 Shader Brush
For my lower lashline I used Rock & Republic Electric Eye Color (shimmery blue). MAC 242 Shader Brush

I lined my upper lashline with MUFE Aqua Black Waterproof Cream Eye Shadow (black). Sigma Eye Liner E05 Brush
I lined my lower waterline with L'Oreal HIP Cream Eyeliner in Black. Sigma Eye Liner E05 Brush
I used Too Faced Lash Injection Mascara for my lashes and added Beautee Senses Smashing False Eyelashes for effect.

My brows are filled in with MAC Eyebrow Pencil in Stud and NARS Coconut Grove Eyeshadow (matte blackened brown). Paula Dorf Eye Definer Flat Top Brush


For my lips I used MUFE #31 Rouge Artist Intense Lipstick (creamy purple pink).



I primed my skin with Tarte ReCreate™ Silicone-Free Primer. I used NARS Sheer Glow Foundation in Tahoe - Sigma Flat Top Synthetic Kabuki Brush - for my face and set my t-zone with MAC Blot Powder in Dark. I used MAC Studio Finish Concealer in NC45 - Fingers : ) under my eyes set with Benefit Powderflage - Beauty Blender Sponge.

I used MAC Coygirl Blush (matte purple pink) for my cheeks - MAC 129 Powder/Blush Brush, MUFE #2 Sculpting Kit for contour - Sephora Professional #49 Blush Brush and MUFE #11 Shine On Powder (shimmery light pink) for highlight. Sigma Angled Top Synthetic Kabuki Brush
