The Victoria Beckham Beauty ‘Tuxedo’ Smoky Eye Brick is a luxury grey-toned eyeshadow quad featuring an ivory, cool grey, smoky slate and soft black shades.
These shades are great every day staples and are super versatile, allowing you to create a range of looks from a minimal wash over the lid, right through to the smokiest of grey glam looks.
For me, this look sits in the middle camp of ‘wearable, soft glam’ which I would feel comfortable wearing for an event when I wanted to look like I had made a bit more effort than usual, bringing some definition to my eyes.
how to create the eye look
- Take ivory shade ‘Blanc’ all over the lid and up to the brow to create a bright and even base for other shades to blend into to.
- Take cool grey shade ‘Rain’ and blend in to the inner and outer thirds of the eye to create a soft halo effect, leaving the middle of the eye lighter. Blend this shade lightly through the crease for subtle definition.
- Take smoky slate shade ‘Fumée’ and deepen the inner most and outer most corners to achieve a soft gradient effect from light in the centre to dark at the corners.
- Take soft black shade ‘Noir’ and softly smoke along the lash line to create the effect of thicker looking lashes.
