How To: "Smokey" Lash Effect

Hello everyone! 

This post is all about how to get the "smokey" lash look I've been wearing lately, using some amazing new drugstore products!  I've been kind of subconsciously applying my eyeliner and mascara a bit differently lately, and recently I decided it's kind of an entire look in itself.  

The great thing about this look is that you can use these lash-defining techniques along with any makeup look to add a soft-focus, sultry effect...below is the list of products and video demonstration for every step! 

Product List:

MAC eyeshadows:

L'oreal 24hr Infallible Eye Shadow in Continuous Cocoa
(dark, rich brown cream shadow w/ powder finish)

L'oreal Voluminous Smoldering Eyeliner in Black

Covergirl Lashblast Fusion Mascara in Very Black

Maybelline Color Tattoo 24hr Eyeshadow in Too Cool
(shimmery white cream shadow)

Revlon Fantasy Lengths Intensifying Self Adhesive False Lashes
(tutorial coming soon!)

Benefit Powderflage
fluffy sable blending brush from Coastal Scents
(E40 from Sigma is a great substitute)

  2. Hi Alli i like this look so much.You are really pretty. I notice that every time i try to put any kind of eyeliner or eyepencil in to my waterline my eyes look like i ´ve been crying and the eyeliner doesn´t stay in place. Do you have any advice? There is something i can do about that? Thank you.
