It’s not that difficult to make up an extra long-lasting smokey to shine all night long! Discover this easy smokey in this video.
My beautiful model Yorina lent me her face for this deep smokey eye look that will last all night long.
The secret for a long-lasting makeup is to choose the right textures. For this look I used mostly pencils, which go on smoothly and are easy to blend. They mustn’t be too hard in order to achieve this smoldering eye makeup, but not too soft either to make sure the makeup stays in place.
A little tip: Be careful with your eyecream. If it is too rich, it will make your makeup melt away. You may want to go for a gel formula instead and make sure the product is well absorbed before starting your eye makeup.
