Smokey Eye Makeup using Minerals

 

It is easy to get classic, smokey eye makeup using mineral and natural makeup products.

You will need

Silver mineral or organic eyeshadow; Grey mineral or organic eyeshadow; Charcoal/black mineral or organic eyeshadow

Black smudgey eyeliner (natural or organic) and Black mascara (natural or organic)

Step by Step

STEP 1

Draw rough lines of eyeliner across your eyelids, starting at the base. Use a smudger or a blending brush to blend the colour. This will form a smokey base for your eyeshadows and help their staying power. It doesn't matter how messy it looks so long as the colour is consistent and just on the eyelids.

STEP 2

Apply the silver minerals all over the eyelids and up to the brow bone. This will be the highlight.

STEP 3

Apply the grey minerals just to the eyelid.

STEP 4

Apply the charcoal/black minerals to the outer corner of your eyelids, along the crease line (to about half way) and blend. Take a little at a time as over application will require more blending.

STEP 5

Once the colours are blended together you can add extra highlight with the silver minerals to the centre of the eyelids. Use a small eyeshadow brush to add a vertical line.

STEP 7

Add a natural eyeliner to your lower lash line. Start from the centre working your way out and flicking up. Smudge to create a softer, smokier look. You can also add a little of the silver minerals to the inner corner of the eyes for even more highlight.

STEP 8

Finish the look with your choice of natural mascara.

Top Tip

Try different colours such as blue or brown to create a smokey look. You will need 3 shades of colour – light, medium and dark.
