I thought I would do an eye tutorial using the Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette as I know a lot of people own this. If you don't, the colours can easily be swapped out for similar colours from any brand.

Products Used

Chi Chi Eye Primer

Makeup Geek Peach Smoothie Eyeshadow

Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette

Bobbi Brown Black Gel Liner

Bobbi Brown Smokey Eye Mascara

Ardell Demi Wispies False Lashes and Ardell Lash Glue

Brushes Used

XO Beauty Eyeshadow Blender Brush

XO Beauty Tapered Crease Brush

Zoeva Luxe Pencil Brush #230

Zoeva Wing Liner Brush #317

Bobbi Brown Touch up Brush

Step 1 - If you would like a more precise edge to your eyeshadow then start by putting a piece of tape angling from the bottom lashes up towards your temple. Cover the entire lid in the Chi Chi Eyelid primer, use your ring finger to smooth over a thin veil from your lashes to your brow.

Step 2 - Take Peach Smoothie on an XO Beauty Eyeshadow Blender Brush and brush this through the crease. This is just to create a bit of warmth and act as a transition shade.

Step 3 - Take the shade Tease from the Naked Palette on the same XO Beauty Brush and also brush this through the crease. Don't take this quite as high as Peach Smoothie.

Step 4 - Grab the colour Busted on an XO Beauty Tapered Crease Brush and focus this along the outer corner of the eye, you can also deepen up the crease colour now too.

Step 5 - I have used a tiny bit of Blackout on a ZOEVA Luxe Pencil Brush also in the outer V and crease to get even more depth. Layering is the key!

Step 6 - Using the flat side of a Bobbi Brown Touch Up Brush, press Pistol all over the lid right up to the crease colours.

Step 7 - You can either remove the tape before or after you do the eyeliner, I prefer to take mine off before so I can double check the position is right. Then I take that little ZOEVA Pencil brush and with a bit of Tease run that along the bottom lashes. Then layer up with Busted and Blackout to darken it up.

Step 8 - Using a ZOEVA Winged Liner Brush and Bobbi Brown Black Gel liner, create a wing and then line along the top lashes, make sure to get right up close to where the lashes grow out. Finish with Mascara and Falsies and your good to go!

One last tip, I always make sure I go back over all my edges and blend it right out. There is nothing worse than harsh edges and yes, blending does take time when it is done right. Those You Tubers you watch spend a lot more time blending than the few seconds they show on their videos.
