Alright, Alright Alright. Back into the swing of things. I have a tutorial for you today featuring the Montecito Cosmetics products I reviewed yesterday. See it here: Montecito Cosmetics Review
I wanted the star of the show to be the Nude and Smoky palette and the best way to do that is to create a traditional smoky eye to show it’s capabilities.
So let’s jump on in!
Like I said in my review this palette is super handy to have in your kit. I used it for my eyes, contour and bronzer in this look.
The first thing I did was fill my brows in, prime my lids and apply the white shadow from lid to brow bone as a base shade and to create a clean smooth canvas.
Using a brown liner from NYC I tight lined my upper and lower waterline as well as along my upper lash line. In retrospect, I should have used a deeper shade or a cooler one.
I moved on to the lower lash line and smoked it out with the deepest brown and the second darkest to blend, keeping most the darkness at the outer portion. You can bring it in further if you want, but keeping it focused on the outer portion is more flattering for my eye shape. It gives it a lifted more open appearance.
I went in with the black shade along the upper and lower lash line to add intensity and even more smokiness. I keep the black close to the lash line and softly blended it so there was no harsh line. I also pulled the black a bit higher in the outer corner to create more lift to my eyes and have a nice gradient effect.
The finished off with mascara, for this I used the Montecito 3d, Fiber Mascara. Review coming soon.
For lips, I chose a deep brownish berry shade by Maybelline.
Here’s the finished look!
Bee Beautiful. Bee You.
