EYESHADOW 101 Color Tattoo Smokey Eye Tutorial

|

Want to make your faithful smokey eye warm-weather appropriate? This deep purple update makes a standout summer look with minimal effort. Try our beautiful Color Tattoo 24HR Cream Gel Eyeshadows to create a standout purple smokey eye that'll make your eyes pop. 

/01/ BASE FIRST

To start, apply a light wash of Instant Age Rewind Concealer to your eyelids, buffing it in with a sponge. Not only does this create an event base for your eyeshadow, it gives the pigment maximum mileage and maximum colour payoff.

/2/ GO FOR BOLD

Maybelline Color Tattoo 24H Cream Gel Eyeshadow Textured Swatches

This smokey eye employs a trio of shades from the Color Tattoo 24HR Cream Gel Eyeshadow range. With 12 ultra-pigmented long-wear shades available, any colour combination is fair game but for this look, we're going for metallic intensity!

Start by using the creamy beige 'VIP' shade to create a neutral base for your look. Then, dip into 'High Flyer' for a jolt of purple. Fill in the outer corners and map our your crease before blending it across both eyelids. Finally, a touch of 'Golden Girl' on the inner corners completes the look. 

Pro Tip: For colours that pop, pack the pigment onto a small brush and stamp — rather than sweep — it onto your lids. Once you've packed it on, blend away!

/3/ ALL THAT JAZZ

Complement your smokey eye with equally bold lashes, brushing on a generous coat of The Falsies Lash Lift Mascara. As for the rest of your makeup, less is more. Layer on City Bronzer to add depth and dimension to your cheekbones and sweep Master Chrome highlighter onto the high points of your face to ensure you bring that golden hour glow wherever you go.
