Ever since my haul (which I will probably do a video/post on it soon) from CrushCosmetics a week ago, I have been trying out different looks using the new products, which include my VERY first batch of NYX products (yay to no longer a NYX virgin lol). :)
A subtle smokey eye look for beginners.
I actually got the idea from a friend, who was having a hard time trying to figure out how to apply make up for a upcoming dance/dinner and apparently, the Youtube tutorials are a lil too advanced for her. Lol.
A close up of how it looks like. A pretty subtle one for those who doesn't want to have overly bold look but still want the smokey effect to be there.
To add some spice to this look, simply draw your lower lashline using an angled brush with any funky colours of your choice on top of the brown eyeliner I have used. In my case, I picked a turquoise-ish green eyeshadow and a frosty light green colour to line the inner tear duct area.
(Although it is not really obvious in photos)
