[FOTD] Smokey Eyes using Inez Eyeshadow #Vienna (a short review)

Before I start blabbing to much about FOTD, please keep in your mind that I’m not a professional make-up artist, not even close! I do my make-up just with my intuition and by looking how other make-up gurus putting on their make-up. 
So, for today’s make-up, I tried to match my eye shadow colours with my clothes, which has got blue theme. I was going to use blue eyeshadow but i don’t have any (I should make a mental note to buy blue eyeshadow later o_O) Fortunately, I’ve got this Inez eye shadow I bought 4 months ago. At that time, I bought this Inez because the BA said the quad colours were great to make smokey eyes look. 
This quads is named after a capital city of Austria wich is Vienna. I have no idea why they named it with Vienna but the colours are great! All colours are pigmented even though i’m not putting on any eye primers.

This is what the quads look like….

The package is dark blue in a glossy plastic material. Some people say they hate the design. For me, personally, it’s just okay. At the back of the package, you can find the manufacturer name and address, the code of the eyeshadow, and the expired date. I like how they print the date not on the label but directly on the plastic package itself. It means I needn’t worry forgetting the expired date.

Inside, there is a mirror (which is big enough) and the quads. The quads have 2 shimmery colours and 2 matte. The colours (from left-right, top-bottom) are Black (matte), Dark Grey (shimmer), Light Grey (shimmer), and Taupe (matte). It’s got a double applicator but I think the applicator is too hard. Whenever I use it, I always hurt my eyes. Too bad.

And here are the swatches on my arm. Aren’t they pretty? From all of the colours, Taupe is the least I like. It’s too light and even though I’ve applied it a couple times, still the colour doesn’t appear much.

At the bottom photos, those are tools I used to create this smokey eyes look.

  • Masami Shouko Lid Brush – M 206
  • Masami Shouko Dome Brush – M 215
  • X-pert Sponge Applicator 

Here are the steps to create smokey eyes!

  1. Apply eyeshadow base on eyelids (I used Viva Eye Base Gel or Aubeau Eye Make-Up Base) and wait until it’s absorbed into your skin.
  2. Using the X-pert Sponge Applicator, apply #Taupe onto your 1/3 of your lid, start from the inner corner of your eyes.
  3. Apply #Dark Grey onto your 2/3 part of lid, so it’s on the middle.
  4. Apply #Black onto the last part of your lid. At this step, you will have 3 different colours on your lids.
  5.  Now, blend the area between two different shades with Masami Shouko Dome Brush well. 
  6. Still with Masami Shouko Dome Brush, pat a bit #Taupe shade and blend the crease of your lids. 
  7. Highlight the brow bones with #Light Grey using Masami Shouko Lid Brush and blend well. 
  8. If you want to, you can add more #Black at the outer corner of your eyes. It will create a strong smokey eyes look. (In these photos, I used only a bit of #Black for my daily office make-up)
  9. Add black eyeliner to make your eyes popped! (Here, I used KI Lumiere Liquid Waterproof Eyeliner).
  10. Last, coat your lashes with your favourite mascara. I use Maybelline Volum Express The Falsies, but be careful! Don’t buy or use the fake ones! Read here how to know the original and the fake Maybelline The Falsies
  11. Tame your brows with eyebrow pencil/gel. I use e.l.f Eyebrow Kit and it’s my Holy Grail for eyebrows.
  12. You’re done!

 And here’s the overall result. Tadaaa…..
