The next tutorial in our Smokey Eyes and Nude Lips for all shades series is for the fair skinned ladies out there. Janna here was kind enough to be our model for this look. Janna is blonde and fair skinned so black can be harsh on her if not done right. That gives us the perfect opportunity to demonstrate that you can do a smokey eye without using black shadow and overpowering the eye. Here we go!
Start with a clean face, moisturize and apply foundation.
Using a fluffy crease brush, apply MAC shadow in Contrast, a deep blue, in the outer v of the eye and blend outward.
I like to darken up the "V" just a bit. Then fill in those brows. For blondes, I like to use the darker color in the Anastasia Brow Powder Duo in Ash Blonde.
Here you can see I also lined the top of the lid with a gold liquid liner. I used MAC's
Using Stila Kajal Liner in Onyx, line the waterline and using a pencil brush, smudge along the lashline and up into the outer v.
Now for lips and cheeks! Applying only to the apples of her cheeks and blending outward, I used MAC Sweetness blush lightly.
MAC's Blankety is my go-to lipstick when I want to create a nude, no matter the shade. It blends great with other colors so I find myself using it for every skintone! With Janna I applied a balm to her lips then layered on Blankety. It's an amplified creme so it has a bit of shine to it as well.
And there you have it! The finished look!
