Lillee Jean Sultry Dark Bronze Smokey Eye Makeup Tutorial 2017

Uh-huh, I see you lookin’ at those new products listed up above, girl! This tutorial ACTUALLY came about when I wanted to wear my new Bite Beauty lipstick in Sour Cherry. Maraschino reds tend to be hard colors to pull off as they’re overpowering, however, if you smoke out the eyes correctly all should go well! With all that being said, to begin I applied Shea Moisture’s 100% Extra Virgin Coconut Oil onto my skin beginning from the center of my face, and massaging out towards my hairline. Being as I had a bad hormonal breakout over the past two days, I chose Marc Beauty’s Genius Gel Foundation since it can be sheer, or medium coveraged! Pumping out exactly ONE full loop of product onto the back of my hand, I picked up Morphe’s M439 Deluxe Buffer Brush, patted into the product on the back of my hand, then transferred the given foundation onto my skin with a variety of blending, and buffing motions. I tend to work from areas needing the most attention FIRST, to areas needing a dust-over! Not sure if you cuties are aware, but Make Up For Ever debuted their new Star Lit Liquids just a few weeks ago. In all honesty, these ARE NOT for everyone, however, if you don’t mind a bit of shimmer, PURCHASE IT! Literally with just a tiny dot popped onto my cheekbones, the product melted into my skin, and formed the most eye-catching glow I have ever seen. The white with pink/pearly reflects really brings the look together! Lip wise to not state the obvious (sarcasm), I glided on Sour Cherry by Bite Beauty, and blotted off excess product onto a cleaned paper towel to prevent bleeding, and feathering.

You loves know the drill by now– brows first, shadow next! If you’re new here, I typically glaze over the brow portion simply because EVERYONE does their brows uniquely, and there is truly no “right” or “wrong”, since I can’t be there to say, “hmmmm, try out a soft arch!” Ya’ feel? With that being the case, grab your Morphe 35OS Pallet, and a durable blender that can double as a pointed blender, too! I personally chose Morphe’s M433 Brush, a good dupe for Mac’s 217 Brush, and swirled into Row 5, Column 3 as my starting shade. This was dusted across my lids, and up into my crease with fluent side to side blending motions! Morphe pallets tend to have a TON of pigment, so I suggest working your way up with this bad boy, since it is an all over color shade, not a lid shade. Speaking of the lids, with that same brush, I dusted Row 3, Column 3 across my lids, as well as under my lower lash lines with form fitting concentrated blending, and patting motions! The M433 hugs my lids perfecting, so when I place it on the inner thirds, I casually drag out and blend back and forth while on the rim of my natural crease (to reference the form-fitting blends). Lastly for definition, I applied Row 5, Column 1 closely to the inner v of my eye sockets, with a close blend predominately on the outer thirds of my lids. Proof all you need is one brush ;)!


Here is where things get TRICKY! Pulling out Black Bean by Nyx Cosmetics, I first lined my upper lash lines throughly with the highly pigmented eye pencil, then I dragged the liner onto my lower lash lines slipping onto my waterlines for a heavy black finish. I went back in a second time to apply Black Bean slightly onto the outer thirds of my lids, and darker on my lower lash lines making sure the black smudges connected to the tail ends of my winged liner up above (creates an eye opening/widening effect). Lash wise I kept things dramatic and paired Ciate’s Wonderland Mascara with Huda Beauty’s Scarlett Classic False Eyelashes! The more dramatic, the better. Before summing this blog post tutorial up…did you notice the new logo I created ;)?
