Soft Romantic Makeup (Revisited)

I’ve done a lot of UD Naked 3 makeup tutorials, and though most of them are smoky eyes, I do have a few non-smoky eyes tutorials. I was looking back on those tutorials, and I’ve decided to revisit this Soft Romantic Makeup post. I actually liked how I did my makeup in that post, but I felt that I wanted to redo it, and added more intensity to the shadows. Which one do you prefer? This tutorial or the original one? Let me know on the comments below!

I’d also like to mention that I’ve changed the way I filled my brows for this tutorial – it’s thicker, and more natural looking. I think I prefer this brow, even though it might look “less polished” than the “carved out” brows (aka concealer on top and bottom of my brows), I do like how it looks more organic. What do you guys think?

I apologize if the photos are slightly too warm, I didn’t realize my camera’s white balance setting was on the “warming filter” option. I tried to neutralize it using photoshop, but this is all I can do for now (besides trying to neutralize the yellow shade, I did not do anything else – no airbrushing whatsoever). I’ll be more careful next time.

soft smokey eyes tutorial


1. I applied MAC Perky paint pot all over my (mobile) eyelid using my ring finger.

2. Using a small blending brush, I applied UD Naked 3 Darkside on the outer V.

3. Using the blending brush that came with the palette, I applied Nooner on the crease. I used this shade to blend out the edge of Darkside.

4. I applied Trick on the eyelid, using the flat eyeshadow brush that came with the palette.

5. Using a small shader brush, I applied Burnout on the inner corner of the lower lid, and Darkside on the outer half.

6. I, very lightly, applied a teeeensy bit of Blackheart right on the roots of the lower lashes (just the outer half).

7. I lined my waterline using MAC Chromagraphic eyeliner in NW25/NC30. Along the upper lash line, I created a winged liner using L’oreal 24H Lacquer Liner and an angled eyeliner brush.

8. I filled my brows using Anastasia Brow Wiz in Taupe and Brunette.

9. Curled my lashes, and applied Gwiyomi False lashes no. 3.

11. Then, I applied MUFE HD Foundation in 120 using Real Technique Expert Face brush.

12. I applied MAC Pro Longwear Concealer under my eyes, as well as on the bridge of my nose (just between the brows).

Smashbox Entice Me from Love Me Spring Collection

If you are following me on Twitter, you should know that I went to grab the new Love Me eyeshadow palette from Smashbox couple days a go. Since I couldn’t decide which palette to buy, N told me to grab both! So, I bought both the Entice Me and Admire Me palettes. I bought it at Shopper’s and lucky me, I was able to use my points to pretty much buy both palettes (woo-hoo!!!). It costs CAD$40 for each palette at Shopper’s.

Entice Me Smashbox

Entice Me comes in 5 shadows – Purple Taupe (left), Sparkling Purple (top), Icy Pink (bottom), Icy Blue (right top) and Deep Sparkling Navy (right). The “base colors (Sparkling Purple and Icy Pink)” occupied most of the palette.

The texture of the shadows is very buttery and creamy. It blends very easily. The Icy Blue and Icy Pink are very light and pastel-y. The other 3 colors are quite shimmery.

Anyhow, I’m using Entice Me palette for this tutorial. I used the same step-by-step look on the upper eyelid as what they recommend at the back of the palette.


1. I applied Icy Blue from the inner corner to the center of the eyelid using a flat eyeshadow brush.

2. Then, I applied Sparkling Purple from the outer corner to the center of the lid, blending it towards Icy Blue.

3. Using a small shader brush, I applied Icy Pink on the inner corner of the eyelid.

4. Using an angled brush, I applied Deep Sparkling Navy on along the upper lashline as a winged liner.

5. I used a clean angled brush to apply Purple Taupe on the lower lashline (not on the palette instruction).

6. I lined my waterline and tightline using L’oreal Smoldering Voluminous eyeliner.

7. I curled my lashes and applied L’oreal Voluminous Carbon Black mascara on both top and bottom lashes.

8. I filled my brows using Anastasia Brow Wiz in Brunette.

9. For my face, I applied Urban Decay Naked foundation.

10. I applied L’oreal True Match Concealer Crayon W1-w3 under my eyes, along the bridge of my nose, on top of my brows and on my cupid’s bow.

11. Then, I used L’oreal True Match Concealer Crayon N6-N8 on the hollows of my cheeks, on the side of my nose and on my temple.

12. I applied MAC Cubic on the cheeks and completed the look by applying Revlon Mauve It Over matte lipstick.

ps: please ignore my under eye circles..I haven’t been able to have a good rest for a few days, and I got sick…
