I'm not particularly fond of Kim Kardashian - I'm admittedly quite envious of her no-talent fame *ashamed*, but I do think that she's quite divinely beautiful.
So today, I thought I would create one of her classic bronzy smoky eye makeup looks for people with small, hooded eyes - minus the overly drag-queen'ish contouring, spider-legs fake lashes, or boobs and ass out to.......
I'll be using the Urban Decay Naked Palette, because everyone and their mother already has one in their makeup kit, so I figured this would be quite convenient and easy for people to follow.
Silly face: so that you can see what it looks like at the end
Or watch me do this on Youtube.
(( This was my first video with lots of comical mistakes - like my camera NEVER focusing on me but on my messy background (my storage/book room - also where I do my makeup) - Anyone know why this is happening? Ugh...) -- Subscribe! :)
Here I am, looking quite stoned.
If you see any black makeup on my waterline, that's from before...and my poor excuse for lashes have been curled already.
I generally skip eye primers. Only time that I ever bother with them is for vivid eye color looks, weddings or photo shoots under hot lights. I hate caking on products so I generally skip it when possible.
Apply a creamy but sheer white eyeliner to the inner rim and the waterline. I'm using the e.l.f Shadow Stick in .... erm, damn ... I'll link it at the bottom. The writings rubbed off so I need to google it for you guys.
Yes, it's time to do my nails again, ignore it! ...
I'm constantly trying to make them appear wider by elongating them way past my eyeball socket. But you don't have to do this if you were fortunate enough to have been born with normal or even blessed with wide set eyes...lucky b*tch. :D
Contour the outer V with "Hustle" and start blending to just the middle of the eye balls. I used the SILK ANGLE SHADER C500 brush to do this. For small eyes, I always avoid closing them up completely with dark shadows but make sure you're blending them so that you don't get harsh lines.
Blend, blend, blend..... No, you haven't blended it enough..be a pro and blend some more... I'm using my LG Smudger C445
I did a Glycolic acid Peel at home last night because my skins been looking so congested lately. What you see is my skin hardening over today because it's dead, why it's looking so dry and gross. It should look quite horrifically scary by tomorrow morning ....
A dab of "Darkhorse" to the outer V to intensify the color.
Apply Half Baked to the inner V and the outer wing area (photo below) . This light gold shade will make your eye color pop , especially if you have blue eyes. I'm using this light shade at the corners to lift my eyes upwards like Kim Kardashian. I used the R&L Lip Brush C600 to apply the shadow. If you're wondering why I'm using a lip brush for the eye.. follow this link to my previous blog -- my favorite makeup brushes for small eyes.
Contour the lower eye lid (squint your eyes, so that you can see the contour area more clearly). If you'd like to know more about how to do this - look at my other blog, how to make small eyes bigger entry. I used the DarkHorse to contour with the R&L Smudger C420.
Blend that lower eye contour - do not cake on products. Apply bits by bits..
Eyeline your eyes with "DarkHorse". For small eyes, avoid lining your inner V, keep them bright and open. if you have large eyes, feel free to turn yourself into a panda.
Should look something like this......actually..
Made it smokier by adding more of the
DarkHorse and Creep to the outer V.
If you decide against going the bronze route, then I would dab on some light shade on your eyebrows bones now - Urban Decay Naked palette Eyeshadow shade in Virgin would work brilliantly.
Lashes & Loreal Voluminous Mascara. It makes such a fucking difference! I used the individual lashes in Med + Short length, which were all knot-free today, but if I was going out somewhere, I would've used the demi wispie by Ardell WITH the Individual lashes.
I then used way too much of the Too Faced Poolside Primping Sun Bunny Bronze powder (*sigh*) with the R&L C141 makeup brush all over my face, Nose, Cheeks, forehead, wherever the sun would have hit, then blended the hell out of that.
Lip liner is Too Faced in Perfect Lips (my holy grail - it matches everyone's lips - BUY THIS!)
Lip Stick - my current fav nude - Loreal in Nude 862.
Thanks for stopping by! I hope this post was helpful!
Take care, keep smiling! <3
