Eye Makeup Tutorial (Brown)

Hi everyone, 

Today I am going to show u a tutorial on how to apply brown eyeshadow.
I learnt this technique during a workshop organized by Lancome in 2009.

For this look, you will need:

1. 3 shades of eye shadow (dark brown, light brown and skin color) - I am using Silky Girl Mocha Latte no 16 and Elianto e/s)

2. Kohl Pencil (I am using Stage Kohl Pencil in # 01 Karma Kohl)

3. Eye shadow brush (from Estee Lauder) + a tool that can smudge the kohl pencil color (see step 2 pic below)

4. Black Liquid eyeliner  (In 2 It)

5. Mascara (Clinique lash power mascara in 01 Black Onyx)

Step: 1 - use the Kohl pencil and color your eyelid area, open your eyes to see the areas that you wish to cover, for a more dramatic look, color it higher. 
Pls note that kohl pencil and your normal eye liner pencil is not the same, kohl pencil is easier to blend.


 Step 2 : smudge the kohl color with a tool shown below.
Step 3: apply dark brown eye shadow over the kohl pencil area and blend

Step 4: apply light brown eye shadow above the dark brown e/s and blend
Step 5: apply the skin color e/s below the brow bone and blend
Step 6: Apply eye liner and mascara



 So, how do u like this eyeshadow application technique?

I didn't know the difference between kohl and regular pencil before this. Thanks. Nice EOTD, dramatic yet subtle. Looks great on you.

I love that you used the kohl pencil as a base - I didnt even know there was a difference between kohl pencils and regular liner, I just thought it was a name :)

I think I'm gonna put Kohl pencil to my next must-have item list, and thanks for the helpful tutorial. I'm not good at doing eye-make up thingy but I'm gonna try it anyway.. ha ha.

Wow, that looks really nice and professional :D I know a lot of girls like to use khol as base, but the damn thing creases like mad on my lids :( I guess I have the "oily" type of lids and khol melts away on them.... So I use paint pots as base :D
