Last year I created an Arabian style makeup look on my eye, and I uploaded the image to my social media accounts as well as on here, which proved extremely popular - so I decided to do a tutorial on my channel, recreating the eye makeup. And here it is!
Check out my sparkly eyes tutorial for the festive season!
If you are going out for your Xmas do, or somewhere special New Years Eve, then this look is the perfect way to glitz up your eyes!!!

To recreate my ‘Black Smokey Eye’ with a soft Purple fade ;
I applied Eye Covet in Noir by Anastasia Beverly Hills, to the entire eyelid, up to the socket.
Also along the waterline and under the lower lashes.
Used my ring finger to soften under the the lashes.
Then I pushed a matte Black eyeshadow over the top to set it in place and create a dense colour.
I have an unnamed brand, but use anything that’s highly pigmented.
I used my Blank Canvas Cosmetics E24 brush for this.
In the crease, I blended ‘Strut’ from my Anastasia Beverly Hills Catwalk palette, which is a purple shade, into the seam of the Black.
I applied it with the same E24 brush from BCC, and then buffed over it using my Base Shadow brush from Real Techniques.
This created a gradient from the Black to the purple.
Once I defined my brow using my Brow Wiz in Brunette, teamed with my AshBlonde brow powder (also from ABH), I then applied their highlighter pencil called Duality under the brow - creating a clean precise shape to my brow.
I used the small end of my E30 brush from BCC to blend the highlighter downwards into my eyeshadow. A synthetic angled brush is best for this.
I added a silvery eyeshadow from my Sleek palette to create the highlight on the inner corner of my eye. I applied the eyeshadow using my E23 pencil brush from BCC.
I finished off by applying some Magnetic Lash mascara & I added some fluffy lashes from Urban Decay to complete this smokey eye!www.facebook.com/ShowMeMakeUp www.blankcanvascosmetics.com
I had a play this morning with some Lit Cosmetics glitter in ‘Beach Baby’.
I used a cream eyeshadow by Illamasqua called ‘Intrude’, to define the socket like crease, and I used Anastasia Beverley Hills ‘Brow Wiz’ to define my brow.
I also applied their highlighter ‘Duality’ on my brow bone to make the brow appear cleaner & enhance its shape.
To line my upper & lower lid, I used my Black liquid liner by Lime Crime in ‘Quill’.
