MAC Technique Smokey Eyes Step by Step Instruction

Hello girlies!!!

Hope you girls are doing fantastic. So what you girls loving?? I am again into this smokey eyes. I have this special place for MAC Cosmetics, probably because they have such amazing SA's and loaaads of make up to chose from. I was at MAC store to try some makeup that's when the SA told me about their makeup tutorial. I was excited because trust me I had no idea about how to get the smokey eyes look.

So today this post is going to be a step by step instructions to achieve the smokey eyes look and a few tips that i learnt during my classes.

Its quite simple to achieve this smokey eyes look.

Face makeup
Step 1: Cleanse and tone your skin. This is absolutely important before you start your makeup.

Step 2: Moisturize!! Yeah this is how you prepare your skin. A well moisturized skin holds makeup and also  it becomes really easy to apply makeup.
*oily skin beauties use water based moisturizer.

Step 3: Primer.This almost evens out the skin. Use a pea size on your t-zone and blend on the rest of the face. Use your hand for this.

Step 4: Concealer. Use this under your eyes or any spots you want to conceal.
*always use concealer in the same shade or  shade darker to give a natural look.

Step 5: Foundation. Use you hands or foundation brush to apply the foundation. Always use the right shade to give a more natural look. Use dusting powder to give a glow.

Step 6: Blush. If you are using a powder based blush, first dust powder over foundation then apply the blush with  blush brush with strokes towards the temple.
*Tips: If you are using a creamy blush use it soon after using foundation, then use the dusting powder.
