My first picture tutorial- Visee Blackish Forming Eyes

Hello!
I haven't received any new contest entries for my GOLD DIGGA contest, what's going on with that?? The winner gets to shop on ebay at koreacreed26's store- I think that's a pretty cool prize! Plus, the more who enter, the more prizes I will add.
It's a little frustrating, but I know everyone is super busy and there are a CRAP LOAD of contests/giveaways going on atm.

Moving on...

As you can see, on the poll to your right, ppl. voted for more swatches and PICTURE tutorials- Making videos are much easier than pic tutes! lol

Anyway, I'd love to hear your feedback- was this helpful? And what type of tutorial would you like to see next time?

Visee Blackish Forming Eyes

start off with a base all over the eye
I used: MAC Soft Ochre paint pot


Take the shimmery highlight color

Apply the shimmery highlight color in the inner-third, tear-duct, and brow-bone highlight



take the next dark color (a bronzy-color)

apply the bronzy color on the outer two-thirds of the eyelid

blend (doesn't have to be perfect)

use a color to prime the eye, and contour the crease with a fluffy brush
I used: MAC Cork eyeshadow

blending this lighter crease color and the bronzy color helps to make it seamless and smooth, without any harsh lines

so far, it should look like this


use the next darker color to deepen the crease (I'm using a different fluffy brush- it's more narrow and precise)

start blending

keep blending

and blending...

only take it about this far into the crease

you don't want to over-do it with this darker shade

should look like this
excuse my broken-out forehead

for ever MORE dimension...


take the black color, with the same narrow/precise fluffy brush


and start deepening the crease

don't take it too high up, start low and blend

should look like this
minus the acne forehead lol!



take a black liner to the waterline
I used: Urban Decay 24/7 pencil in Zero

should look like this


now this is a step I ALWAYS do, everyday...
take the black eyeshadow


and go over the waterline (go over the liner you just applied)
this helps to SET and INTENSE the liner

see? much more intense than just the liner by itself

use the black shade on the outer corners, under the lashes

should look like this


this step is optional
I am using Majolica Majorca MM Neo-Automatic Liner in Brown to apply under the black waterline liner


this is going to help with the smoky effect


instead of using a black liner ontop of the upper lashline, I am using the MM Neo-Automatic Liner in Brown



see how the upper liner is uneven and lumpy?


I took the 2nd darkest shade


and I went over the MM Neo-Automatic Liner in Brown


Especially going over the top to smooth it out



remove any fall out with a fan brush


curl your lashes (I'm using the foldable Koji curler that Mel gave me)


I am using Loreal's Double Extend Mascara


First, the lash primer


sweep the primer on


should look like this


next, use the mascara



look at the difference between both eyes!
this mascara rocks.

haha, see the difference? crazy beans.


should look like this


something is missing...
oh yeah! BROWS!


I always start at the outer edge of my brows, and fill them in with a pencil
I used: MAC Brow Pencil in Lingering


so the outer part is done


then I fill in the rest of my brows with a shadow
I used: MAC Omega eyeshadow


AND THERE IT IS.


The finished look!



Hope this was somewhat helpful :)

innerchild said...

Thanks for the pictorial, Whit! I think I prefer picture tutorials over videos cos you can always refer back to a specific step instead of scanning through a video and always get the, ah, did you catch that? xD It's like being in class, it's easier that the prof spoon feeds you the notes than you having to take it down yourself lol We're lazy ppl! This tut is very thorough, thanks again Whit! And oh, I'm planning to join your contest, but I'm still practicing with the makeup! I just wnat to let you know :D I have a theme (or an idea), but I hope it goes well ^^

Gorgeous Whit!! I loved this step by step!! My blending skills suck ass though! That's why I hardly do the black on the outers! LOL! Hey I line my eyeliner with shadow too! :) Better staying power! :)

I procrastinate and join contests really late. Thus ending up in me missing Eki's deadline! I tend to do my entries the day of the deadline! LOL! I'm soo bad!

Whit, I loved this picture tutorial and much prefer picture tutorials over videos.

I love your lashes and am envious that your lashes stay curled even after applying mascara. Mine always go back to stick straight after applying mascara.
