Dark Sultry Valentine’s Day Tutorial!

Hey guys so with it being February (I’ll be twenty Wednesday, AHH) I decided to do a look for Valentines Day that is dark and smokey. I wore this look for a friends 21st and got so many compliments on it. It’s suitable for any occasion and will also be gorgeous on everyone too 🙂

What Shadows I Used: 

  • Black
  • Purple (wine and light purple)
  • Brown
  • White


  • Priming our lids first with a concealer or eye-shadow base, blend a matte brown shade into the crease.
  • Using a white highlighting shade, highlight under the brow bone.
  • Take a dark purple shade and blend over the brown.
  • With a flat brush, put some black all over the lid. *Do not put into the crease.

  • Going back in with the purple blend out the black up into the crease in windscreen wiper motions.
  • Taking the lighter purple blend over this up towards the brow bone.

  • Keep building up the colour until you get the intensity you want and just go back with the purple shades to blend out the black.

  • On the bottom lashline apply the brown shade all across into the inner corner.
  • Go in and blend some dark purple about two-thirds of the way in.

  • Put some black on the outer rim of the bottom lashline and then apply some eyeliner about half-way on your waterline.
  • Apply a thin band of eyeliner to the top lip, some mascara and lashes.
