Smokey Eyes, Nude Lips & Hair Tutorial

**(video at the bottom of post)**
This look was inspired by +Casey Holmes, she is one of my favourite beauty YouTubers, so Thank you Cas! This eye look can be a bit tricky as it is has a cut crease effect, which to be honest I had a little bit of trouble trying to nail myself. I didn't want my cut crease to look like a dark wiggly/messy line. Nevertheless, I managed it and I love how this look came together in the endFor this look I have written you a little step by step (SBS) guide on how to apply these shadows as well as a video tutorial down below. It has been a while since I did a SBS guide here on my blog so I think it's about time I did one again to give you that little extra guidance. I know some of you prefer a written breakdown on how and where to apply the eye shadows, so this one is for you guys! 
For this look I used +LORAC Cosmetics PRO palette which I have been in awe with for some time. I just new I NEEDED to get my hands on it. And so I did. I highly, highly, highly recommend you getting your hands on it, the colours and the pigmentation of the shadows are exquisite, it's my favourite palette so far.
I hope you enjoy the video and I hope you can understand my little guide on how to get this smokey eye look.

Step by Step Guide
1. Apply Taupe all over eyelid and crease to act as a transition shade for the other eyeshadows.

2. Place Sable into the outer corner/V of the eye the blend up into the crease for a cut crease effect.

3. Add Espresso in the outer V of your eye and blend into the crease to deepen it.

4. Apply Gold onto the lid and blend up to the crease to brighten the look.

5. Go back in with Espresso to deepen the cut crease once more after applying the Gold shade.

6. On the lower lash line apply Gold to make your eyes pop.

7. Place Sable in the corner of the bottom lash line and blend into Gold.

8. Finally apply eyeliner and mascara, then your Done! 

Thanks for stopping by and watching my video
