Rose Smokey Eyes by Kirei Makeup

Last month I was browsing for specific graphics, when suddenly an unrelated thumbnail popped out while I was flashing through several overview pages. Since I was searching for social media the eye make-up was entirely unrelated but it must have been the colours in the grid which caught my eye, I browsed back to have a peek at this thumbnail.

That’s how I got in contact with Jilly, makeup artist of Kirei Makeup, Indonesian by origin, lived in Toronto and currently residing in Jamaica. It sounds like a great cocktail, one of my other weaknesses, I like to mix and Jilly understands blending magic as no other. Since beauty post is long overdue, I am introducing Jilly by what better way sharing her tutorial even better she is following up with a special guest post for Asianfoodtrail after she returns from her latest travel trip.

1. I prepped my eyelids using Urban Decay Primer Potion in Sin.

2. I applied Burnout on the inner third of my eyelid using the flat-end of the brush.

(I wiped away excess shadow on the brush on a clean towel before step 3)

3. Using the same brush, I applied Liar on the middle of the eyelid.

(I wiped away excess shadow on the brush on a clean towel before step 4 )

4. Again, using the same brush, I applied Mugshot on the outer third of my eyelid.

5. Using the blending-end of the brush, I blended the edge of the eyeshadow.

6. I applied Blackheart using a small crease brush on the outer V.

7. After wiping excess eyeshadow from the crease brush I used on step 6, I dragged Blackheart on to my crease, and blended it out.

8. Using a fluffy brush, I applied Limit right at the edge where Blackheart meets with my skin. This helps to blend out Blackheart, and make a nice transition to my skin.

9. I lined my waterline and tightline using L’oreal Voluminous Smoldering eyeliner. On the lower lid, I applied Mugshot using an angled eyeliner brush, then Blackheart very close to the roots of the lower lashes.

10. Then, I created a winged eyeliner on the upper lash line using L’oreal Super Liner Ultra Sharp Tip.

11. I curled my lashes and applied Buxom Lash mascara on both top and bottom lashes.

12. For extra drama, I added false lashes for extra length and volume. These falsies were samples from my friend, which is currently in production.

13. I filled my brows using a mix of Anastasia Brow Wiz in Ash Blonde and Brunette.

14. I applied Giorgio Armani Maestro foundation on my face, blending it using my fingers.

15. On my cheeks, I applied Revlon Cream Blush in Charmed Enchantment using a foundation brush.

16. Then, I applied MAC cream base in Pearl on top of my cheekbones, bridge of my nose, and cupid’s bow using my finger.

17. I applied MAC Please Me lipstick on my lips using a lip brush. Then, I added a little bit of L’occitane lip balm just to keep my lips moist since it’s so cold here in Canada!!!

18. My hair was set using a velcro rollers set and 1.5 in Chi curling iron.
