When it comes to creating the perfect smoky eye, we called the experts to teach us a few tips and tricks to nailing this trendy look. Couturing teamed up with the professionals at L’Oréal Paris, to show us step by step how to master the smoky eye with three simple products. Glamorous with a hint of rebellion, create your Intense Smoky Winged Eye, fit to make any occasion.
Well groomed eyebrows can transform a face as they frame our eyes when given extra definition. Bold and perfectly defined brows are becoming a staple in every beauty routine and it is essential you have this step mastered before attempting the smoky eye – or any beauty look!
Famous for their widely successful line of brow products including SuperLiner Brow Artist Shaped and Brow Artist Plumper, L’Oréal Paris are excited to announce their latest edition to the brow bar: L’Oréal Paris Brow Artist Genius Kit. The all-in-one brow kit to define, shape and style your brows is simple to use with instructions attached to the packaging to make application easier. The first shade in the duo is pigmented wax, which holds for 12 hours and acts to define the shape of your brows. There is nothing worse than clumpy brows losing colour and shape during the day. Thanks to L’Oréal’s new kit, the waterproof wax will defy all weather conditions and is perfect for those taking a euro-vacay this summer (we’re jealous!).
Promising to adapt to natural brow colour, we tried and tested the second shade to fill in the rest of the brow. Safe to say – we were pleased! For those with darker brows, fear not! The buildable colour of the shaded powder will adapt to your natural brow colour.
Your dream eyebrows are now within reach and you are ready to begin your smoky eye look. Follow these steps for the perfect brow:
Step 1: Shape the brows using the wave and the angled brush
Step 2: Define and enhance the brows with the powder
Step 3: Use the spooled brush to style the brows
For the first time, L’Oréal Paris has invented a powder eyeliner to effortlessly deliver the ultimate smoky eye. With an application wand resembling a thick liquid liner, the L’Oréal Paris SuperLiner Smokissime is the deepest and easiest liquid pencil we’ve used to create the smokey look. In one stroke, the Smokissime eyeliner will draw, blend and intensify your desired look.
Available in three shades; 100 Black Smoke, 101 Taupe Smoke, 102 Brown Smoke, follow the steps below to create the beautiful look.
Step 1: Use the tip of the sponge applicator to draw your smoky eye
Step 2: Use the rounded side of the sponge application to blend and build colour to achieve your desired smoky eye.
No smoky eye look goes unnoticed without big bold lashes! L’Oréal Paris introduces False Lash Butterfly Wings Intenza in ultra-intense matte black and is perfect to finish off any smoky eye. Transform your look with intensely extravagant volume and ultra-matt lashes. Lashes are intensely volumised and fanned out for the ultimate matte winged eye effect.
What we love most about this mascara is the way it stretches and lengthens the lashes by separating and adding volume to each individual lash. Disclaimer: your lashes may be mistaken for falsies!
