If you’re planning a romantic date for Valentine’s Day, this warm, smoky eye tutorial is for you. And if you’re like me and your ideal Valentine’s Day involves burgers and cheese fries at Shake Shack (I save that for special occasions), this could still be for you. I mean really, it could be for any day of the week, but there’s something very *~romantic~* about a smoldering eye, don’t you think? Want to learn how to recreate this warm smoky eye? Check out the products I used, and then follow the step by step tutorial below.
Products used for Warm Smoky Eye / Valentine’s Day Makeup:
“Blackjack” (lid) & “Extra Bitter” (smoked out around edges) from Urban Decay Naked Ultimate Basics Palette
Too Faced Born This Way Concealer in “Light”
Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Invisible Cover Foundation in 115 (sheered out with a damp Beautyblender)
Warm Smoky Eye Tutorial, Step By Step:
- Apply Urban Decay Primer Potion all over lid and blend up up toward your brow bone.
- Fill in your lid and lower lash line with MAC Kajal Crayon / Diane Kendal “Flourish Me Deep” or any black liner. The reason I like this one in particular is because it is thick and has a nice slip to it; it glides on and blends easily.
- Pat “Blackjack” from Urban Decay Naked Ultimate Basics Palette (or any matte black shad0w) all over lid (over the liner you just applied).
- Using a pencil brush, sweep “Warning” from the Urban Decay Full Spectrum Palette ) (a reddish shimmery copper) into your crease.
- Blend out with a blending brush to soften the lines.
- Pick up “Extra Bitter” (warm rust) from Urban Decay Naked Ultimate Basics Palette with the same blending brush and blend between the other two colors for a more gradual fade. Without picking up any extra product, keep blending (using soft, sweeping circular motions) until you get the desired look.
- Using a flat smudge brush, press “Blackjack” into the lower lash line.
- Sweep “Extra Bitter” on the outer edges with a fluffy brush.
- Apply false lashes – or just mascara, if you have lashes unlike my short, straight ones.
- Pat a highlight on the inner corners (I used “Seize” from Urban Decay Full Spectrum Palette). Done!
