Tutorial: Subtle / Natural Everyday Smokey Eye Make-up


Yay to my first eye make-up tutorial ever! :D Basically, as you can see on above photo and the title, what I want to share with you is how to achieve a subtle smokey eye make-up which is still appropriate for everyday as well as for the weekends.

I am currently so in love with this look and have been doing it every time I go out for the past 2 weeks. I find that this look will look flattering on those with monolids or asian hooded eyes, like myself. For those of you who don't know, my eyes are kinda hooded/droopy or more likely should be called hidden double eyelids. I have this fat which just droops down and cover almost all of my eyelids, making it look like monolids. If you wanna know about how I did this look, then keep reading! <3


That's all. Easy isn't it?

A tip for those with hooded eyes, never put thick eyeliner on your upper lash line because it just doesn't look good, instead work on thin lines on the upper lash line and thicker on the lower lash line. I like to work it that way because it is the easiest way to make my eyes look more awake and bigger :) I am sure it can help open up your eyes too if you have hooded eyes! Try it and you'll know. And another tip for you with hooded eyes, always make sure you put mascara on your lashes, even if they are short and sparse like mine :P or even better, put fake eyelashes. It makes a whole lot of difference.

List of the products I used to create this look:
  • Etude House Proof 10 Eye Primer
  • Skinfood Sugar Bloom Shadow Box #3 Cappuccino Bloom
  • Revlon ColorStay 12 Hour Eye Shadow in 011 Copper Spice
  • Maybelline Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner in 02 Brown
  • Maybelline Long Extreme Stiletto Mascara 
  • Maybelline Volum' Express the Falsies Mascara

This is the final look! <3 
Used flash just so I can show you the eye make-up better.

More pictures. Just because :P

What do you think of the look? Do you find the tutorial helping?

  13. That's a pretty look sweetie! Noticed that you used the Proof 10 Eye Primer in your look. How does it perform compared to Urban Decay, Too Faced, Nars etc?

  14. The look is so natural and easy to do!! I'm wary about smudging the liner on the lower lash line though, mainly because I have hooded eyes and they are a bit slanted downwards so I feel like it would make me look like a panda u_u It looks amazing on you though!! Thanks for the tutorial ^^

  18. Thank you <3 awww I can't compare it with others because I have never tried the other. This one was cheap and it works for me really well, so I didn't bother to try others :) But from reviews I've read, they don't really differ and this one works just as good! Thank you for visiting the blog <3
