Sexy Kim Kardashian Smoky Eye

Miss Kim K looks AMAZING here with her smoky eye, so I wanted to emulate her look.  Laura of So Far, So Chic has been telling me to do a smoky eye for a while because she thinks that the look would be great for my eye shape and something different than the bright colors that I generally do, so with inspiration like the above showing off a perfectly smoldering sexy look, how could I resist the challenge??

Makeup artist Kandee from youtube was gracious enough to go through a very easy to follow step by step tutorial of Kim’s exact steps to a divine smoky eye.

Products that I used to achieve the look:

Revlon PhotoReady foundation in 011 Cappucino -This disappears into my skin and feels really good!  My first time using it and I really wanted a good new liquid foundation.  It doesn’t show up as a silly ashy color in photos, feels super light, was easy to blend, and provides just enough coverage.  I have to give this product an A!

MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Dark as a finishing powder.

Nars blush in Taos

Victoria’s Secret Very Sexy face illuminator in Candlelit

-Revlon Colorstay Brow Enhancer in Blackened Brown/Taupe

-Too Faced Shadow Insurance

-Santee Color Intense Eyeshadow- This little palette was some super cheap $3 thing I bought at a beauty supply store because I liked the colors.  I figured with some primer on the colors might have a hope of showing up on me.  It actually worked out okay for doing this look, since I was layering on colors like in the video.  Used a metallic taupe color and a chocolate brown from the compact.

MAC Mulch Eyeshadow

-Smashbox Eyeshadow in Champagne

-Stila Onyx Kajal Liner

Diorshow Mascara in Black

-Victoria’s Secret Lipstick in Dusk

I followed Kandee’s easy steps for the pretty smoky eye for my Kim K. inspired look.  First I applied the Revlon foundation well with an Eco Tools foundation brush.  Then the blush and illuminator were applied followed by the eye makeup steps done in the video: champagne first in the corners, metallic taupe from palette, darker brown from palette, black eyeshadow by Mary Kay, Mulch by MAC, Stila liner, mascara then voila!  Great smoky eye.  I wanted mine softer than Kim did, but you can pile on a dark kajal liner to get a very similar effect to hers!  Have fun with it.

We went out for a night on the town, hitting up 2 clubs and 3 bars, garnering lots of attention at every single one.  My eyes were quite bewitching, apparently 😉
