A Mini Makeup Tutorial

Instagram-ed this awhile back and a bunch of you complimented the makeup, especially the eyeshadow.

(❁´◡`❁)*✲゚* Thanks! I think it’s rad too!

So I thought why not do a mini makeup tutorial? ☆*・゜゚・*\(^O^)/*・゜゚・*☆

Just a headsup, I didn’t do it – I wish I can do this for myself. (╯_╰)  Before you give me credit I don’t deserve, this was a post-photoshoot selfie. I was lucky to have an expert who’s been around for many years make me up.

I’ve met many professional makeup artists before and have always been intrigued by their craft. Making people beautiful isn’t an easy job! ♥‿♥

The expertise of this one blew me away. Her name’s Melissa Yeo too! No, I’m not being biased.

(*´∀`*) Hahahaha!

The secrets behind a mesmerizing smokey eyeshadow – blending and the right colours. Yes, it’s more than just a black colour. This may be a shocker, but the base (the colour we start with) does not have to be black or grey. The best base is usually a brown tone!

The colours used to achieve this eyeshadow were from the Naked palette. Can you guess which colours were used?

Darkhorse: The colour most prominent / accent colour.

Smog: The unsung hero also known as the transition colour. It’s the base Melissa started with before she smoked my eyes with Darkhorse. As you can see, a good blend helps these two colours to transition seamlessly.

Sidecar: The highlight colour. This goes on the brow bone and the inner corners of my eyes. 。◕‿◕。

Melissa also added a dash of Blackout from the Naked 2 palette to the outer corners of my eyes to further define them. You can used any black colour from the same palette, so don’t worry about buying 2 different palettes or more colours. In fact, you can substitute these colours with similar eyeshadow colours you currently have! :)
Melissa is a perfectionist. She brought all her Naked palettes that day – Naked, Naked 2, Naked 3. Check out our dressing table…

The idea is to make your eyes look like they glow in the inner corners and deep-set in the outer corners, hence the bright to dark transition.

Finish off with the usual: Eyeliner (top + bottom) and mascara. I’m not wearing falsies here but you can add them on if you wanna amplify the look! (✿◠‿◠)
