Sexy Brown Smoky Eye Tutorial Feat. the Elf Prism Palette in Naked


When I think of Summer nights, I think of glam browns and glittery neutrals with a small dash of color. Well, I fell in love with this look so I wanted to share it with you guys, just in case you need an idea or inspiration!




Step 1: I primed my lids using the Elf Glitter Primer.




Step 2: I then applied a black kohl liner (Elf Studio Kohl Eyeliner) to the outer "V" of my lids, and smudged and blended it outwards and upwards with a brush to soften the harsh lines.






Step 3: I then took the second shade in the Elf Prism Palette (Naked) and applied this to the open space on my eyelids, stopping at the black liner.






Step 4: I then used the third shade in the palette and applied that in the center of my eyelids and blended slightly where the edge of the black liner was.






Step 5: I then applied the last shade (darkest color) to the black liner. 






Step 6: I used the second shade to soften the black/brown line right above my crease.






Step 7: I then used that same liner and BARELY dotted right underneath my lower lash line. I used the smudging side to blend it towards the inner corner of my eye, but stopped about two thirds of the way.





Step 8: I then used the darkest shade in the palette again, but this time I applied it directly to the black liner underneath my lower lash line. I blended it gently with a brush so I'd have a smoky effect.









9: I then used a black pencil (this one is by MUA) and created a cat-eye on my upper lash lines.





Step 10: I then applied a mascara primer for some extra volume on my lashes. I used Elf's Mascara Primer.




Step 11: I then applied the MUA black eye liner pencil to my waterline while I was waiting for the mascara primer to dry




Step 12: Next I applied 2 coats of Elf's Mineral Infused Mascara






Finished Eyes:





Step 13: I then applied a peachy-pink blush. I'm using a blush by Tarte called Blissful.





Step 14: Next I used a Baked Highlighter  by Elf in the shade Blush Gems to brighten the top of my cheeks, nose and chin.




Step 15: I then applied a nude lippie by Elf. this one is the Matte lipstick in Natural.







Finished Look:
