A New Take on Smoky Eye Makeup
Zelana: I am Zelana, your BellaTV correspondent. The smokey eye never goes out of style. I saw super modern version on January Jones so I asked her celebrity secret weapon Rachelle Goodwin to show us what this look is all about.
Rachelle: Well, it is not quite the smokey eye we have seen before. It is a little bit more dramatic. I use a more dramatic kind of theme. And I went with one shade all over the eye.
So to start this look, I like to use a primer because we are going to use creams today. And I want them to stay on perfectly. I am using eye shadow base on the entire lid and bringing it all the way up to eyebrow that creates a great canvass for our clean color.
So, the second step is a cream color gun metal gray. I like to use pink because they are transparent and they have a really fresh feeling about them. The color doesn’t go on to too heavy. I am taking the color almost all the way up to the browbone. And don’t forget to take the cream color all the way around the bottom of the eye as well which gives a dramatic effect.
Zelana: So, what was your inspiration for January’s look?
Rachelle: We really wanted to just change it out from that classic 60’s madman style where she is sort of seen as this character. And she is actually quite a modern woman who likes to take a lot of fashion risks so we did something new and bold. So, this last step is really about setting your makeup and creating more airbrush effect. And so what I am doing is I am adding a powder on top of the cream which gives a little bit more diffusion to the color.
Zelana: So, is this powder step really necessary to complete the look?
Rachelle: It is. Well first of all, it adds this certain softness to the makeup. And indeed it helps keep your makeup on for hours longer than if you didn’t do it.
The key to making this look successful is about using transparent textures and keeping the rest of your makeup to a real minimum. This way, you get to have this fun edgy makeup but not quite as dramatic as I did on January. It’s much more relatable and beautiful for the evening.
Zelana: Thanks for watching BellaTV, stay beautiful.
