Illamasqua’s new smoky eye look
Here at Beauty Club Tower’s we’re going ga-ga for Illamasqua’s new smoky eye look. It’s simple yet dramatic and sexy yet understated.
Known as the Sophie-I smoky eye, the technique focuses on discovering new depth and definition in your eyes using the black Sophie Medium Pencil. The best bit, from every Sophie Pencil purchase £3 will be donated to the Sophie Lancaster Foundation.
Here’s how to master the look:
Sketch along the upper socket line with the creamy black Medium Pencil in Sophie. Then buff with an Illamasqua Eye Shadow Brush to create a soft, diffused line. You can even wear this step on its own, to create a striking look in a hurry with just one product.
Take a pale neutral Powder Eye Shadow (we recommend Matt Stealth) and gently press it to the centre of the eye lid, and underneath the brow bone for subtle highlight.
With Powder Eye Shadow in Machine build over the previous black pencil line, working outwards and upwards. Then take an Illamasqua Blending Brush and blend the two Powder Eye Shadows together, ensuring there are no sharp lines.
Mix Sealing Gel with your black Powder Eye Shadow to create a colour intense, water-resistant paste. Taking a sharp Angled Eye Liner Brush apply the paste in a fine line along the upper lash line as a liquid eye liner.
Artists’ Tip: You can also use this to redefine the original Sophie Pencil
line along the socket for some serious drama.
