So makeup is always fun when you do it with a friend, so I thought why not call my friend Roshni Bhatia aka The Chique Factor and do today’s smokey eye makeup tutorial with her! Because if there’s anyone who loves smoky eye look as much as I do it’s Roshni Bhatia So let’s call Roshni! Hi Roshni! It’s so good to see you again! How are you doing? And how social distancing treating you? Hi Simmy! It’s amazing to see you! I’m doing great and social distancing is treating me rather well.
Now, I am someone who loves to be at home anyway The complaints and the regret that I could not give my family as much time Didn’t do this or that, at home…Now, I am doing everything possible I am cooking, I am cleaning I’m creating more content I am doing everything at my pace and I’m someone who loves to you know just do things on her pace and I think it’s treating me very well! Obviously, I’m praying to God that the situation gets better soon And also the speedy recovery of the ones affected, but I think more than that I’m very very thankful to God and I’m really really enjoying this spirit! How about you? It’s actually fun you know, like to stay home with your family spend time with your family and everything so we company socializing all your family gets up so I was thinking How about we do a fun black smokey eye makeup look together? Wow smokey eye makeup.
..mmm! That rings a bell! Last time, we did a really cool smokey eye as well! But yes, why not? You know, we should do like a fuss-free smokey eyes makeup because people think if smokey eye is like really tough and you know it’s like really like difficult to achieve and it’s not that difficult I think it’s scribbling, and everyone can do that! Just a few things here and there that you have to take care of and I’m all about fuss-free makeup and quick makeup and I know so are you! So yeah, let’s do it! Yeah and the best part is, that we don’t have a timer in today’s video so we can take our own sweet time time and do this smokey eye look Like the last time I was behind you with the timer ticking! So this time, it’s pretty relaxed! Thank you so much! we’re going with the quarantine and chill mood, we should continue with no timer, everything should take its time and do it at your own pace, huh? Let’s do it? Let’s do it! Okay Roshni, since we are already done with our base makeup I think we can directly move on to a concealer.
So, the concealer that I have with me is the L’Oreal Paris Infallible Full Wear Concealer in the shade: ‘Amber’ Yeah, even I have the same one, this is in the number 312: ‘Amber’ and what I love about this concealer is that neither this too bright nor too dark, it’s a perfect colour! And I apply a tiny amount, literally only this much, and it’s enough It’s applicator is very comfortable too.
This acts as a perfect eye base! It helps me create that perfect canvas for the smokey eye, you know? So, I’m gonna use a brush and apply it all over my eyelid If you guys are a beginner, you don’t have brushes I think you can use your fingers to spread this concealer easily Just the way I am doing it! and that’s a really good thing about this concealer.
It spreads easily, it doesn’t clump it gives you a full coverage, and finish is also really really nice It’s a matte finish concealer Yeah, and I think it’s also really important to have like a perfect under-eye base also for a smokey eye because while doing a smokey eye, if there’s even a little imperfection underneath the eye or your dark circles are visible, it will just show even more! Because, you’re using black on the eye, so any black which you have on the under eye is going to really you know it’s going to pick up even more So, this is perfect for undereyes I think it’s one of my favorite concealers, I just love it! okay Simmy, so today we are gonna tell everyone that a smokey eye makeup look is not that difficult as it seems.
You just need one product! And today, I am using the L’Oreal Paris Super Liner Gel Intenza! The specialty of this product is that obviously you can use it as an eyeliner but today I am gonna tell you how to do an overall smokey eye base with this I am using a fluffy brush, and I am gonna dip this in the eyeliner So, I have already created a smokey eye makeup base with the fluffy blending brush Now, I am taking a flat brush, so that I can go with this on my lashline intensify smokey eye look, just like Roshni was saying earlier so I’m gonna dip my brush into the liner like that and I’m gonna apply this very very close to my lashline and I think the best part about a smokey eye look is that you don’t really have to worry about it being perfect! So don’t worry in case you make a mistake, you can always blend and diffuse this And I am going to change my brush, use the fluffy brush to blend the liner I have applied near my lashline start blending it towards the outer corner and you want to make sure that you don’t really exceed the brow bone just try to limit it within the brow bone area and diffuse it! And, Roshni the technique that you were talking about earlier about holding the brush as lighty as you can it’s actually a very very good tip! The tighter you hold it, you’ll not be able to blend it properly! Simmy, you won’t believe even I have learnt from experiences I used to take a brush and only focus on brushing my eyelids black And I never used to like it So, I learned slowly that the the the lesser the pressure, which means that the farther you hold the brush, you’ll get a much better result! And another makeup tip, if you don’t have a lot of brushes Like, I never had a lot of brushes I have learnt that, if I have to apply the eyeshadow and also blend it using the same brush I can use a tissue to take off all the product from the brush, just like this And since the brush has no product now, I used to take the same brush, and blend the edges And if you have any normal powder, you can use that But I don’t need that, because my lids are already very dry So, I took the same brush and blended my crease So that it looks even more diffused But it should not look really crazy because there’s no product on the brush, and the only product blending is on the crease And then I would always try to give it like a like a shape like, this kind of a shape; so that you know your eyes look more lifted I think this is one of the best products to do a smokey eye makeup look with You can actually control the intensity of a smokey eye look you can make it as intense as you want or keep it soft.
And, the best part is that this the gel liner is actually smudge-proof and it’s transfer proof so you have to be really quick while you’re blending your gel liner because it dries really fast as soon as you apply it which is also very good quality because of the high Bombay humidity, because if you apply anything you know, you get sweaty and then it starts or melting on your face so it’s very very important that you use something which is transfer proof which is smudge proof, and I think this comes in really handy! What do you think? Oh absolutely! Simmy, I think it’s really handy because Once this is applied, it sets quickly so not gonna move anywhere but you have to work with it And like I said, if there’s no product on the brush, I use the same brush on my undereye just like this to get that overall balance on my eyes And if you want then you can also put this same eyeliner, it comes with a brush you can also put it in your waterline but I am not gonna do this because my eyes look a lot smaller but if you have big and beautiful eyes, like you have amazing eyes you should definitely I think you should put it inside your waterline, because that’s gonna really look nice! Anyway, so I am doing this constant motion when I’m giving this shape, this sort of lifted look so that there is some method to this madness And now, you can see that I haven’t used any other product I haven’t used any powder, it’s just one eyeliner that I have smudged on the lash line and I have smudged the same on my crease, and you can see a beautiful gradient smokey eye that’s almost ready And, now I am gonna share with you another makeup trick to open up your eyes because with a smokey eye, your eyes can look droopy and closed So one makeup trick was to use this stroke, this motion so that your eyes or give an illusion of a lifted look Another makeup hack is to use a highlighter in your inner corners to create a 3D look If you want, you can also use it on your lids as well Because that will also give you a 3D effect which looks really beautiful Simmy, are you ready? I’m ready! let’s move on to the highlighter then! let’s move on to the highlighter! I’m using the La Bar A Blush in the number 16: ‘Be Brave’ I am using the same! So Roshni, I’m gonna be using a brush in fact, for my brow bone so I’m taking this this dense fluffy brush actually and I’m gonna lightly use the powder over my brow bone and I’ll spread it nicely Remember, that you have to start from the centre of the brow bone and take it all the way towards the edge of your brow and as you can see instantly, your smokey eye look will pop as soon as you highlight your brow bone and that’s the whole idea of using a highlighter on your brow bone, it just instantly makes your eyes pop we should now move on to a mascara because I think no smokey eye look can be complete without a mascara, right? So I’m using the L’Oreal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara Same! I’m going to use the same mascara, it’s actually one of my favorite mascaras! what I do is, I take off the excess on a tissue paper Because I think that, not many people know about this People feel that using more mascara would make it last longer, but that’s not the case guys! You just have to remove excess, and wiggle the mascara from the roots of your eye lashes so that you get the push, the lift that would last all day long! What I think is, the wiggling motion separates each lash and every lash gets a coat of mascara like a proper lift that you get so it’s important to you actually wiggle your mascara wand a little bit when you’re applying it and of course, everyone says it’s their favorite mascara, even I do.
But why is my favorite? The reason is, because the first time you apply as mascara you really like it, because your eyelashes are fresh they’re soft, they’re not that hard.. and when you put a mascara obviously your effect is really beautiful but the mascara is put to the real test when you have to re-apply it And this mascara, I swear is the best thing to re-apply, because it just doesn’t dry down even if you do like five coats of it, it’s going to stay fresh which is my most favorite part about this mascara that re-application and doubling this up is so easy, and of course it stays for a long long time the mascara which shows up black flakes under the eye, is the kind of mascara you don’t want So if you wanna test a mascara you have to check your under eye after 30 mins to 1 hour, and if you see mascara flakes, that means it’s not holding very well but this one I promise, will hold you for at least good six to eight hours because this is my experience with it and that is why I got to this conclusion that this is my favourite mascara Because this quarantine, I have checked a lot of things, taking my own time with it So with that, we’re done Roshni! This smokey eye makeup look was done really easily and quickly! What do you think? I know! And, I am ready to take a lot of selfies because I don’t want to waste my makeup! I’ll either party or take a lot of selfies.
Oh wait, I’ll do both! I love it and I think that’s the whole like we said that the whole point of doing a smokey eye is to blend it well. This is what makes it very easy too! And you can try blue, green and purple, any colour basically! And you have to start just like this And we have done the most basic, easy classic smokey eye makeup look today And I love it! I think it’s very like an old-school smokey eye which I really enjoyed! Thank you for having me, you made my day!
