Today I’m doing a tutorial on how to do a simple contoured eye.
For the eye, contouring simply means working in deeper socket area with a dark eye shadow and on the raised/bony areas with a lighter (highlighter) eye shadow.
Products used :
1. MAC Select moisture cover concealer NC 45.5
2. Bourjois kohl and contour pencil ‘Brun expressif’
3. Chambor eye shadow trio ‘Bronze’
4. MAC fluidline ‘Blacktrack’
5. Brush : MAC 219 -smudging
6. Brush : MAC 239 – eye shadow application
7. Brush : MAC 222 – blending
8. Faces cosmetics mascara
Bare eye –
Step 1- Start by concealing and priming the eye. I am using concealer in the eye as well as the lid. This will act as primer for eye shadow too. Alternatively,you can use a primer or paint pot after concealing.
Step 2 – Blend the concealer using patting motions using third finger.
Step 3 – Set the concealer with powder. I’m using Chambor compact with a fluffy brush (MAC 222)
Step 4– Now , on the primed eye, draw a line using dark brown eye pencil on the upper lash line , outer corner and socket as shown. The line need not be very precise as we will smudge it in the next step. Apply the brown pencil to the waterline as well.
Step 5- Smudge the line drawn in the previous step using a smudging brush.
Step 6 – Apply a neutral light shade in the lid 3/4th of the way starting from inner corner. I’m using a pink shade from Chambor ‘Bronze’ eyeshadow trio. It is nude pink shade but the pink is washed out because of the flash. It appears more like a muted lavender shade on the lid.
Step 7 – Take a dark brown eye shadow and apply in on the outer corner and crease (socket). Apply highlight shade on brow bone and blend with the crease color.
Step 8 – Blend the shades using a blending brush as shown. Start from the outer corner and move the brush towards the inner corner in a semi-circular motion (following the contour of the eye) and the same way back. Repeat the to and fro semi circular motion with the brush till the blending is done.
Step 9 – Apply liner on upper lash line and just a hint of it on the lower lash line, mascara and clean up the ends using a Q-tip.
