EOTD Smokey Eyes Twitsed: Makeup Revolution Iconic 2 Palette

All my dollies, a big thank you for giving my blog so much love! As promised in my previous post, I am posting an eotd with the Makeup Revolution Iconic Palette 2. This is the first time I am doing such a post, so please forgive me if there are any mistakes. I have tried to give in my best. So many of you do eotds so well, I hope to learn with practice.

There are so many versions of a smokey eye, personally I think it is a 'hit or miss' kind of a look. Blending is the major challenge with such intense eye looks. One can go so 'right' or so 'wrong' with intense black smokey eyes. A traditional smokey eye covers the entire lid with dark color and fades as it goes towards the brow. However the dark colors in the lid can somewhat make small eyes look smaller!
The look demonstrated below is a little twisted. I have tried to add drama by concentrating on the crease rather than on the lid of my eyes. This method accentuates the real shape of our eyes. Also one can use contrasting colors to create this look.





The colors used from  the Iconic 2 Palette are marked with an arrow below-


Other products used were-

  • Lakme Eyeconic Kajal in Black
  • Maybelline Hypercurl Mascara
Below are few pictures in different lightings-


The traditional smokey eye holds a special place in my heart but i find this look to be more interesting as it allows you to play with contrasting colors. One can also go super dramatic with a sharp and neat transition between the crease and the brow. For a smoother look always remember to take your time and blend!
Kohlcrush Twist Tip- You dont always have to obey the black eyes and nude lips rule.
Grab a pale pink/frosty pink lipstick to achieve a sexy but cool balance.
Let me know what you think of the look.
xoxo
