When it comes to makeup rules, we’re always preaching that you can’t do strong eyes and lips, but in the video above, Victor Henao, Global Director of Makeup Design for Estée Lauder, shows us how to break the rules and get the knock-out look he created on it-girl Kendall Jenner.
Create your base
For a long-lasting foundation, apply Estée Lauder Double Wear Makeup and a touch of concealer as needed. If you’re not confident about applying a strong eye look, complete this step after you’ve finished your eye makeup and you’ve removed any eyeshadow fallout with makeup removing wipes.
Line your eyes
Start your smoky eye look by applying Estée Lauder Double Wear Infinite Waterproof Eyeliner in Blackend Onyx along the upper lash line and waterline. Don’t worry about being too precise, as you will blend this out later.
Add intensity with eyeshadow
Blend, blend, blend
Now, it’s time to create the smoky effect using Estée Lauder Pure Color Envy Sculpting Eyeshadow 5-Colour Palette in Savage Storm. First, use the dark grey shade and, using the Blending Brush, blend it all over the lid to create a sheer wash of colour. Then apply the black shade along your lash line for more intensity. Finally take the brown shade and blend it along the crease and to the inner corner of the eye to diffuse the look.
Define your lower lash line
Repeat steps two and three along your lower lash line and then blend the black shadow over the top to create the smoky look.
