beauty how-to: CLASSIC SMOKY



SMOKY AND FIERCE are the two words of the day elfettes! If you haven't mastered this look yet, you're going to be a complete pro after you try this easy tutorial. Our model Leslie was perfect for this look! Try these six steps and feel free to switch out the colors for something more summery.

STEP 1: I used the e.l.f. Studio Contour Brush to apply a layer of black Cream Eye Liner on the lids. This allows the base of your powder shadows to be strong and crease-proof!

STEP 2: The e.l.f. Studio Angled Contour Brush helps to blend out the cream while applying a brown/bronze crease color to the eye. I took colors from the natural Pro Mini Eyeshadow Palette to create the gradiant of crease color on Leslie's eyes.

STEP 3: Create a smouldering, layered effect by adding a matte black shadow from the palette onto your lids and aim for the lash line. The e.l.f. Studio "C" Brush is great for this! It packs on the color in an even layer.

STEP 4: For the professional touch, I used the e.l.f. Studio Waterproof Eyeliner Crayon on Leslie's lower lids. This gives the smoky eye a finished appearance since the color is all around the eyes. 

STEP 5: Lashes always add drama to any look, but on a smokey eye they look killer! Leslie is wearing the Studio Lash Collection, Dramatic Lashes, topped with the Precision Liquid Liner to blend.

STEP 6: Lock in your faux lashes and real by applying a generous layer of Mascara. Get those lashes long and flirty to complete the look!
