Wedding Eyeshadow Look

 I recently went to a wedding and did a family photoshoot so it was the perfect opportunity to do a really dramatic eye makeup look. This is by far the most complicated look I've ever attempted but I think it turned out really well.

*I'll include a list of all the products I used for my full face look at the end of this post.

For my eyes I started with the Urban Decay Primer Potion. I then placed a line of tape from the corner of my lower lash line to the end of my eyebrow. This creates a very sharp defined line and keeps the dark smokey shadow from getting everywhere. I used Selfish from theBalm NUDE'tude palette on my lid and the realTechniques base shadow brush to apply it. As the crease colour I used Sexy from theBalm NUDE'tude palette and I applied it with the MAC 217 brush all through my crease. I slowly built up the smokey effect by taking a little but of Sleek from theBalm NUDE'tude palette and smudging it into the outer corner with a small tapered crease brush. This is where the tape really comes in handy as a guideline on where to apply the shadow. Once I got to my desired amount of smokiness, I removed the tape and gently blended out the edge to make it slightly softer.

On my lower lashline I took some more of Selfish and smudged it along my lashes. I used Sassy from theBalm NUDE'tude palette as my inner tearduct and browbone highlight.  I finished my eyes with Urban Decay's eyeliner in Demolition on my upper and lower waterline. I lined my eyes with Maybelline's Blac Gel liner. I curled my lashes and used Benefit They're Real on my upper and Clinique's Bottom Lash mascara on lower.
