Tutorial: Amethyst Smokey Eyes (Maybelline Amethyst Smokes Quad)

Most of you know that I have recently graduated from Makeup School Chic Studios NYC.  So I have been practicing on models as much as possible.  On a recent trip to San Francisco, I gave my very dear friend Rebecca a little makeover.  

Rebecca is the Artistic Director of Music in May, an amazing violinist, and a wonderful friend.  She has been working so so hard to fund-raise for her organization Music in May that I decided that she needs a makeover so that she can look professional and beautiful for concerts and fund-raising events.   

Music in May is a chamber music series out in Santa Cruz, CA that brings together world class musicians.  I was fortunate to be part of the festival a few years ago (as you all know by now, I am a professional cellist).  But she needs lots of support to make something as special as Music in May to happen.  (Please consider making a donation to Music in May:

I wanted to use most of the makeup that she already has, so that she can create the look herself.  
She has the Maybelline Amethyst Smokes Quad, so we used that to create her purple smokey eyes.
Step 1: Apply Eye Primer such as Urban Decay Primer Potion
Step 2: Apply the Lid Color to 2/3s of the lid leaving the outer lid untouched
Step 3: Apply the black color in the outer V
Step 4: Apply a neutral brown color in the crease (I used a brown color that Rebecca already had in her makeup collection)
Step 4: Use a smudge brush, apply the Crease color in the lower lash line. 
Step 5: Use the browbone color in the browbone area and in the inner corners of the eyes
Step 6: Use your darkest black eyeliner and rim you upper and lower waterlines.  Then put the black shadow on top to set.
Step 7: Apply a thin line with Mac's Blacktrack on the upper lash line
Step 7: Curl your lashes and apply mascara

That's it!  It's not hard to do!  Hope that you enjoy.  If you decide to try out this look, please send me a picture on facebok!
