Estēe Lauder Technique: Long-Wearing Smoky Eyes

Lately, I'm trying to recall all the nifty makeup techniques I've learned in makeup classes with pros-I'll be sharing 'em all here. Today, I'll let you know how to cop a long- wearing, easy smokey eye makeup look, the Estēe Lauder way. :)


Liquid Concealer
Powder Eyeshadow

I chose to wear a smokey gray eye today. You can use other colors and other brands with this tutorial too!

STEP 1: Using the eyeliner, draw a circle on your hand and fill in the center. Next, take some concealer and put it beside the eyeliner swatch.

STEP 2: Dab your middle finger on the concealer and then on the eyeliner. Mix the two until they're blended well and increase the amount of concealer gradually just in case you want your concoction to have more slip in it.

STEP 3: Using your finger again, dab the mixture on your lids and blend from the lower lash line until the above crease. Blend evenly.

 STEP 4: Grab a blender brush and dab onto your preferred powder eyeshadow color.

STEP 5: Apply the powder eyeshadow on your lids. This is to set the mixture we made a while ago.

Tadah! Now we have the classic smokey eye. It's a super easy technique and is very useful for those who don't have an eye primer on hand. The concealer and eyeliner, when mixed together, will form a hard, no- budge layer that's pretty similar to a primer. If you have oily lids, just opt for a long-wearing concealer and waterproof eyeliner. Let me know how this technique works for you! :)
