Today I want to share with you this easy-to-do, Soft Glam makeup look, perfect for a date night or a night out with the girls, I had so many requests on doing a simple classic smokey eye, that I thought why not write a step-by-step guide on how to create it. I used all Charlotte Tilbury* and I have to say I’m absolutely in love with the products. This is pretty much my first time using her makeup so I will be sharing my first impressions as I go thought the products with you.
Start by applying foundation/concealer to even out your complexion. I don’t actually have one from Charlotte Tilbury so I used YSL Touche Eclat Le Teint because it lasts really well, gives a great coverage and pretty much perfects your skin (you can read more about it here) I applied it with my beauty blender because I love the smooth finish that it gives. I have my eye on Charlotte’s Magic Foundation I’ve heard some great things about it so I definitely I need to pick it up.
Blend a blusher/bronzer underneath your cheekbones for a healthy glow, I used Charlotte Tilbury Cheek To Chic Swish & Pop blusher in First Love which is very pretty and natural. I need to try the Filmstar Bronze & Glow, so many friends have recommended it to me and I’ve seen it all over Instagram, it looks absolutely divine.
Dot some highlighter on your cheekbones, brow bone, the inner corner of your eyes, down the centre of your nose and on your cupids bow – to get that beautiful glow! I used the outer shade from that same blush compact, it gives such a gorgeous champagne highlight and looks very fresh and dewy.
Using The Rock Chick Luxury eyeshadow palette apply the Prime shade all over the eyelids as a base, use shade Enhance to add a bit of definition by applying it on the crease and blending out and up towards the brow bone. Apply the Smoke shade in the outer V, upper and lower lash line and blend. Finish by adding the Pop shade to the centre of your eyelids for a touch of sparkle.
I love this little palette it has a beautiful selection of neutrals/taupes and the quality of the shadows is really good, so creamy and easy to blend. And just look at the packaging – I absolutely adore it!
Apply mascara/eyeliner. I used Charlotte Tilbury Full Fat Lashes 5 Star Mascara which is pretty amazing, it has such a good little wand that grabs and elongates your lashes, it also separates and curls them. I applied some Eylure individual falsies to the outer corners for even more drama, but feel free to skip this step 🙂
For eyeliner I used Charlotte Tilbury The Feline Flick, which is a fine-tipped pen that’s really easy to use and lasts very well without any fading. It creates a clean fluid line and the perfect feline flick.
Use a lipliner to line your lips in preparation for the lipstick. I used Charlotte Tilbury Lip Cheat in Iconic Nude which is perfect for creating that beautiful shape you’ve always wanted and slightly overdrawing your lips. It’s such a lovely neutral shade and glides on effortlessly.
My lipstick of choice was the new Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk that everyone is obsessed with at the moment, and I can see why. I fell in love with the colour, it’s such a beautiful nude pink I get so many compliments when I wear it, it’s just gorgeous. It’s lightweight on the lips and not drying at all considering it’s a matte finish, the pigmentation is also wonderful.
I really like the Lip Lustre lip lacquers, I have the shade Blondie which is perfect for everyday and would also go really well with a smokey eye and this particular look. It’s lovely and moisturising and makes your lips appear fuller and plumper. It has a beautiful mirror-shine finish and creamy texture it’s really hydrating. It’s actually quite long lasting as well and doesn’t transfer.
So there you have it – your perfect easy Smokey Eye Look in a few simple steps. Have you tried anything from Charlotte Tilbury? Her products are pretty amazing in my opinion and I definitely need to try some more. Tag me in your pictures if you decide to recreate this look.
