Smokey Eye Video Tutorial

Meet Vanja, a biochemistry student with a passion for makeup.

I’ve always admired her talent and creativity. Her makeup always looks professional and flawless, and I’ve yet to learn her secret.

Hope you enjoy this exclusive smokey eye tutorial!

I asked Vanja what her fave makeup was:

Covergirl Eyelights for green eyes. It’s actually really good, doesn’t flake, defines and lengthens, and its cheap – for everyday. Benefit Badgal is perfect as a more going-out type of mascara.

Sexy Mother Pucker in clear by Soap & Glory –  it’s plumping and stays on all day!  I really like the Bourjois lipglosses as well.

In the winter I use Vichy Normaderm liquid foundation, and Purminerals 4 in 1 in the summer.  It’s awesome, has SPF, great coverage, and feels really light on.

By faaaaar Smashbox! I love their bronzers/blushes.

Mac are definitely the best, like the one I used in the video… and they have awesome colours.

One of my favourites ever are the Lise Watier loose powder eyeshadows – you can use them as a loose powder or mix them with their Metamorphix and use it as a liquid eyeliner; it really intensifies the colour, too.

Thank you Vanja!

    That was a really great video – I’m always fascinated by make up! It was interesting to see it from start to finish and how she applied everything so easily – Beautiful results! On myself, I find the smokey eye frustrating because I have no ‘eye crease’ so I’m never sure where to put the dark shade.

    I know, she makes it look so easy!
    Don’t know what to tell you about the “eye crease”. Maybe some readers will have a suggestion. Or even better, make a video for my blog :)

    Nice tutorial Vanja!
    I actually checked out a smoky eye tutorial on youtube a while ago, but the girl had 3 times more steps in how to do it, using numerous colors and brushes. Way too complicated :)
