Soft matte smoky eye

Hey Beauties!

You know me and my neutral makeup looks. Lately I've been craving some more smoky eyes. I did already wear a lot of bronze smoky, but I wanted to put to use my new Sleek i-Divine Ultra Matts V2 palette. So I created soft matte smoky eye look. It's more my kind of shape, because I like that darker on the outside and lighter on the inside look.

Firstly I used matte light brown shade all over the lid as the one transitioning shade to blend with all the others. Then I used matte dark brown shade in the outer V part of the eye. I then added some warmth with cranberry red shade in a flick shape, going thicker towards the outside. I blend in between all the steps.

Then I went back to dark brown and just built up the intensity. As the last eye shadow I added matte brown in an eyeliner form and blended it out.

I did the same on the bottom. Light brown shade as a base and then added dark brown in the outer third. I put cranberry shade all over the lower lid, but closer to the lash line. 

Then I added black at the very outer corner closest to the lash line. Of course I added some thin eyeliner flick.

I finished with lots of mascara and I also decided to add matte white in the inner corner of the eye to make it pop more.

Some wouldn't even call that a smoky eye, but I think it is. It's very subtle and soft almost day time version and I like it. It gives some mystery to your eyes.

I used neutral lip liner and outlined my lips. I went a bit over the edge to highlight the edge. Then I added berry based brown lip liner on the edge of my lips and blended it inwards. At the end I added brownish pink lipstick all over the lips.

On my face I used medium coverage foundation and concealed with concealer. I powdered with high definition powder. The bronzer was used all over the outer edges of the face. I used champagne highlighter heavily on tops of the cheeks, all over down the nose, on cupids bow and a bit above the eyebrows. I mixed brown peach blush with peach red shade and used it very lightly. I also contoured a little with grey based brown under my cheekbones. 

The final look. I love all matte look and I was never to keen on matte eye shadows before. But when you use them all together and mix the shades it looks really pretty. And matte is always a good look on my slightly droopy lids.

  1. Se strinjam s Tayo, super zgleda <3

  2. Such a pretty look! I love matte and satin look as well. Is the Ultra Matte V2 palette really good? I've been eyeing palette but I keep holding myself back and ended up buying another palette.

    1. Really good. Amazing pigmentation and all matte shades. They're darker shades and in the V1 you have very biright matte shades. Together they're perfect matte shade palettes:).

  3. Čudovit look :) Meni so matte looki najboljši, ker imam 'hooded eyes' in mi to najbolj paše ;)

    1. Hvala :) Res je. Mat izgleda vedno boljše na hooded eyes :)
