Step 1) Draw a line from the inner corner of your eye to the outer corner of your eye. Make sure the eyeliner is touching your lashes without any gaps. Always brush the eyeliner in one direction! If you brush against the lashes in opposite directions it’ll weaken the lashes.
Step 2) Imagine an invisible line linking from the outer corner of your eye to the end of your eyebrow. Draw up this invisible line to however long you want your flick to be. Doing this will complement your natural eyeshape.
Step 3) Imagine the flick and the outer corner of your eye as two sides to a triangle. Draw on the missing side of the triangle, that is linking from the tip of your flick to the eyeliner against your lashes. Fill in the triangle!
Step 4) You can leave out this step if you prefer to leave your bottom lashes untouched! Here, what I’ve done is to softly draw in under the lower lashes, then carefully smudge to give a more feathery look that isn’t so clean-cut. However, you don’t have to smudge if you like a crisp look.
When I posted that I was thinking about doing a soft, smoky, powder winged liner look teamed with glossy purple-plum lips I immediately got a response from so many of you guys to create a tutorial. This is a gorgeous, simple, chic and sophisticated makeup look that anyone can do and is great for proms/formals/cocktail parties and more. I love to wear it with glamorous hollywood style waves and hair tucked behind one ear but it also looks great with an updo.

Note: In some of my older tutorials, I used products that were tested on animals. Since then, I have started switching over to cruelty-free products. Tutorials with a “💕 ″ next to them use cruelty-free products.

Other Cosplays (Not Tutorials)
Note: These are cosplays that were either so simple or had already been done so many times (and done well) by other people that I didn’t feel like I needed to make a tutorial for them. These are just cool photos of cosplay projects I’ve done.
So… The new KIKO limited edition ‘Neo Noir’ collection is out, and I am constantly spotting the stunning editorial image for the collection all over the place; shop windows, Bus stops, online etc… it’s so captivating and I knew I just had to recreate the eye makeup!
In the collection are a handful of new eyeshadow sticks and they are like nothing I’ve ever used before. Particularly this Power Blue shade- the metallic finish is mesmerising!
If you haven’t already seen the editorial image for this collection then here it is:
I have to clarify, this is not a paid-for sponsored video. I simply adore the makeup and wanted to use the corresponding products to recreate the look. So I contacted KIKO’s PR company and I receive the products free of charge - so a massive thank you to them for that.
I have listed and linked all the products used in the tutorial in the description bar of the video!
