After posting the pictures on my blog, I had loads of requests to film a tutorial for this look which I created for Cheryl Cole’s February ELLE cover. It’s a great look as it’s cool and sexy without being overdone, and it suits the majority of faces and skin tones.
My main aim was to create a ‘lived-in’ smoky eye, smudgy and imperfect, which looked great paired with strong brows and a pale lip. The other main focal point of the look was strong, sculpted cheekbones, created with lots of blush and contouring - you can see some of the techniques I used on Cheryl here, and I have also filmed a Basic Powder Contouring tutorial which will give you some more tips and advice if you need it.
I hope you enjoy the film!
