Let’s talk coloured smokey eyes – A look that takes skill and the right tools, a look that we adore at jane iredale. This winter we are loving the beauty and simplicity of a navy smokey eye using our gorgeous PurePressed Mineral Eye Shadows, like Blue Hour and Caribbean; and liners in Midnight Blue and Lapis Lazuli.
The key to this look is to keep your lips natural and subtle to allow your eyes to be the focus. Follow these simple steps to create this fresh winter look.
First, apply eyeliner to accentuate the eye. Apply Midnight Blue Eye Pencil above the upper lash line, drawing the line thicker in the middle of the eye.
The key to a smokey eye is all about blending the colour at the bottom of your eyelids. Start with the Lapis Lazuli Mystikol Powdered Eyeliner and line the bottom of the eyelid, then smudge away – feel free to use a bit of Blue Hour PurePressed Eye Shadow to get the full smudge effect.
The Midnight Blue is the go-to eyeliner for the navy smokey eye effect. The jane iredale Eye Pencils are so soft they won’t pull on your delicate skin and the natural pigments give you a long-lasting colour that stays put, allowing you to look your best all day or night.
Next apply a light coloured base like Bone or Allure and then add a light hue of blue PurePressed Eye Shadow like magic over the lids to your brow allowing it to naturally pair with the darker blue you will apply next.
Our PurePressed Eye Shadows are simple to blend, sensitivity-tested and they stay put for gorgeous, crease-free, long-lasting eye color.
Now it’s time to blend in your darker blue, using an eye shadow brush blend in the colour starting at your lash line, blending upwards. Transform your smokey eye by blending the Blue Hour PurePressed Eye Shadow into the lash line, ensuring the eyeliner disappears.
To complete the look coat your lashes with mascara, starting from the base of your lash line. Our jane iredale Mascaras are natural and nourishing, leaving you looking your best with flirty yet sturdy lashes! We’ve swooned over this look before, Keira Knightley at the Los Angeles premiere of Jack Ryan. So hot!
