24.7.13

Before I get to the actual tutorial I need to let you know about few things and ask for you opinion.
I've changed my Facebook page name to 4ng2 Fashion and my Instagram username to 4ng2margaret because my old names were more like a mathematical equation than name for a fashion blog :< ( I was 14 when I came up with the name for this blog, don't judge) 
Annnd, together with my new gorgeous blogger friend Nathalie of Streetstyle and Smile we were thinking of throwing a fashion party. Her blog is new ( but amazing make sure to check it out)  and since my blog is going to hit that 3 years mark really really soon it woulde be a launch of St&S and birthday of 4ng2.
I need a show of hands of who would be intrested in coming ? :>
Tell me in the comments box down below, tweet me, instagram me, facebook me, email me, just let me know ;) :* 




And back to the tutorial!
I'm usually avoiding smokey eyes or other dark makeups because I feel like they're making me look evil but I've been watching videos from FALL 2013 RTW shows and smokey eyes appeared at so many of them and looked absolutely incredible so I tought I'd give this makeup a go.
Some of you might think it's too early to think of fall ...well Ireland is back to it's natural rainy state anyway so it pretty much feels like Autumn already *sigh* 

( I did my everyday foundation and concealing routine at the very end to avoid  excess eyeshadow ruining all my work ) 
 To create this looks I used Topshop Crayon as a base.
 It's super easy to use, you just need to apply all over the lid...
 ... and blend it .
 Using a fluffy flat brush I took black eyeshadow ( I'm using Naked 2 palette but any black eyeshadow will do) 
 And applied it onto the outer 1/3 of the lid.
 With a more defined brush and that very same eyeshadow I contured the crease to give my eyes more dimention.
 Using the fluffy brush I used before I applied the black eyeshadow under 2/3 of my lower lash line.
 I then took Bootycall ( Naked 2 ) 
 And gently highlighted the inner 1/3 of my eyes.
 Now time for some mascara ! I used Benefit They're Real 
 And applied good few layers of it on both top and bottom eyelashes to really open up my eyes.
 To add even more definition to this look and make the natural colour of my eye stand out I took black kajal eyeliner...
... and applied it to outer 1/3 of my wtarelines.
 I finished off this look with a tiny bit of coral Inglot lipstick. 
To make this look more wintery I would reccomend using an oxblood lipstick with satin finish or dark red/ plum lipgloss. 

( I removed all the excess makeup and did the basic foundation routine ) 

Hope you like the finished look !
