Smoldering Gaze

Dial up the intensity from daytime drama to nighttime smolder BECCA artists reveal how to master the perfect smokey eye - soft or sultry - with the new Balearic Love Palette.

STEP 1

Prime the lids with Eye Tint in Romanticism from lash line to crease.

STEP 2

From the Balearic Love Palette, sweep the lightest shade (left pan), Atlas, from lash line to brow bone.

STEP 3

For a softer look, blend the medium shadow (right pan), Marcella, onto the lid and into the crease. For a more intense smolder, blend the darkest shadow (middle pan), Romal, all over the lid, crease, outer corner and along the bottom lash line.

STEP 4

Line the inner corner of the eye with the lighter end of the Line and Define Pencil in Cabrera.

STEP 5

Use the darker end of the Line + Define Pencil in Cabrera to line the top and bottom lashes and water lines. Smudge the liner with your finger or a brush.

STEP 6

Apply 2-3 coates of the Ultimate Mascara in Black to top and bottom lashes for extra drama.

ARTIST TIPS:

  • For more intense colour, apply the shadows wet by adding a small amount of water to your brush.
  • To make your eyes appear bigger and brighter, use a little of the lightest shadow on the inner corners of the eye.
