Tutorial: Easy Smoky Eye

So let me just warn you, I kind of sound like a man in this video as I have been sick all week. That is why I have not been posting as much, so I apologize! But I hope you enjoy this video, and get a little something out of it! I also tried to use some affordable products in this video as well for those of us that are on a budget but still want to look hot.


Here is what I used to accomplish the entire look.

1. Makeup Forever Foundation $40.00



2.Elf Concealer highlighter $3.00


3. NARS Blush in Orgasm $27.00

4. Elf Shadow stick in Pearl $3.00 (I said it was $1.00 on video…ooops)

5. NARS Duo eyeshadow in Cordura $32.00


6. Wet&Wild liner in black $1.00


7. Loreal Voluminous Carbon Black Mascara. $8.99

  • Thanks for the smokey eye tips.  Do you find that a cheap product like Wet & Wild liner pulls a lot when lining?  Sometimes I find this to be true even with more expensive products.  Right now I’m using an Estee Lauder liner (I got free in a gift), and feel like it tugs a lot.  The older I get the kinder I want to be to my skin.  Is there a way to make a liner tug less, or do you have a suggestion for a product that goes on smooth that lasts? 

    • The wet & Wild liner I used was actually pretty creamy, so it didn’t pull. However, it didn’t give me as much pigment as other liners I have used. Jane Iredale makes a good liner that is creamy and doesn’t pull. Also, another option would be to use a liquid liner. Let me know if that helps. Thanks for commenting Rhonda!
