The Blank Slate

I used lovely budget-friendly products to create the look:

Step 1

Apply Wet and Wild Ultimate Brow Highlighter under the brow bone.

Step 2

Blend it down towards the eyelid.

Step 3

Apply the Burnt eyeshadow shade from the Madison palette in the socket and under the lower lash line.

Step 4

With a clean fluffy brush, blend the colour upwards towards the brow but not reaching it.

Step 5

Darken the socket line with the shade Berry, not quite going up as far as you did with Burnt. This gives the smokey effect.

Step 6

Using Velvet, apply to the socket line and under the lower lash line, keeping in the crease line. With a fluffy brush, blend slightly into the Berry and Burnt.

Step 7

Apply your kohl pencil to the lower lash line. Blend this out with the Velvet shade.

Step 8

Using a flat brush, apply concealer to the lid to cut out the crease.

Step 9

Choose a light tone eyeshadow to press over the concealer. I used Daisy from the Madison Palette.

Step 10

Next using a liquid liner, line the upper lash line and blend it out on the outer corner with Velvet.


Finish the look with loads of mascara on the top and bottom lashes.
