subtle smokey for day wear

today’s look was inspired by pixiwoo’s latest makeup tutorial where sam did a day to evening look with outfit of the day. it looks quite easy to achieve with not many products used.

i usually try to do a screencap of the look as reference however i couldn’t find a paused capturable moment. so you’ll just have to watch it and see what it looks like.

the smokey eyes was achieved with gel liner. just as sam demonstrated, the color looks quite intense when applied but looks fine after blending. it’s the blending that requires some skills which i need to work on. while it looks quite dark in closeup shots, the look is quite subtle, for a smokey eyes, when you look at the overall picture.
