A few weeks ago, I was invited by Sandee of MakeupbySandeeTV in YouTube to have a makeup collaboration. I love Sandee's works because she does creative makeup looks as well and I also admire her passion and dedication in doing makeups and filming videos. We came up with the theme Bb. Pilipinas, which is a well-known beauty pageant here in the Philippines. We thought of this idea since when we decided for a theme, the Bb. Pilipinas 2013 just ended, wherein Ms. Ariella Arida took home the crown! Congratulations, kapatid! :)
After we decided for a theme, I observed and learned the makeup looks of beauty queens but even before looking for photos, the first thing that came to mind was classic black smokey eyes because the eye makeups of beauty queens are always fierce and intense! Still, I searched for different beauty queens' photos but I just kept on coming back to the classic black smokey eyes so that's what I decided to do in this collaboration.
Classic Black Smokey Eyes by The Project Awesome
1. Prime your eye lids so that the eye makeup will last longer.
(I used the ELF Eyelid Primer)
2. Take a taupe eyeshadow and with a crease brush, define the eye sockets or crease of your eyes.
(I used the taupe eyeshadow from the PROPS Original Matte Palette)
3.Apply a black gel eyeliner or black cream eyeshadow or eye pencil as a base for the eyeshadows on the lids up to the crease. Blend with a synthetic blending brush.
(I used the Fanny Serrano Gel Liner in Black)
4. Take your blackest powder eyeshadow and basically apply on top of the black base. Use a patting motion to avoid smudging the base and to avoid caking. Smoke out the edges with a blending eye brush.
(I used the NYX Single Eyeshadow in Black)
5. Next, apply a warm brown eyeshadow on the edge of the black eyeshadow to soften the look. Line your lower lash lines, too with the same eyeshadow.
(I used the warm brown eyeshadow from the PROPS Original Matte Palette)
6. Highlight the inner corners of the eyes with a satin light silver eyeshadow.
(I used the satin light silver eyeshadow from the PROPS Original Matte Palette)
7. Highlight the brow bones with a satin light yellow eyeshadow.
(I used the satin light yellow shade from the PROPS Original Matte Palette)
8. Line the water line of the eyes and tightline using a black eye pencil. Bring it down on the lower lash lines as well.
(I used the In2It Waterproof Gel Liner)
9. Apply the same black eyeshadow you used on top of the black eye liner and smudge it.
10. Put on falsies if desired then coat with tons of layers of mascara! :)
(I used a pair of falsies from Divisoria and applied Essence Get Big! Lash Volume Curl Mascara)
