Bionic’s Smoky Eye Tutorial

by Bionic Beauty on 08.Oct.2007 · 1 comment

The infamous makeup question of ladies… “How do I create a Smoky Eye???” Never fear, Bionic is to your rescue. Read on for a quick and easy method for a truly wearable Smoky Eye!

First off, here are the products used:
Makeup for creating a smokey eye
Smashbox shadow in Smashing Strike
Jane duo’s shadow in 07 Browny Points / Hazelnut
Milani shadow in Storm (Bionic’s review)
Physician’s Formula Mineral Wear mascara in Blackest Black
Brushes by Sonia Kashuk

Apply the Smashbox in Smashing Strike across your ENTIRE lid, crease, and up to brow. This light taupe color works as a base and neutralizes your eye’s lid color.

Then lightly sweep the Jane shadow in Browny Points across your crease (follow the arch of your eyeball).

Use the lightest shimmer color (Hazelnut) from the Jane Duo to highlight under your brow and the very inside corner of your eye (by your nose).

Now take the Milani shadow in Storm (lightly shimmered dark dark charcoal) and line your upper lashes. Blend the line all the way up to your crease. Blend, blend, and blend baby!

Apply a line of the Storm shadow below your lower lashes (if you use a short stubby shadow brush as pictured this should be very easy).

Finally, line your upper lash line *again* with the Storm shadow for emphasis.

Apply your favorite mascara and you are done!

If you’d like a more dramatic look, use liquid liner for the final lining on the upper lash line.
