L’oreal Cookies and Cream

Finally! A tutorial, whaaat?! Well, beauty lovers, I hope this will satisfy you for a while. I do have a few more stuffs lining up, but one by one, shall we?

So, I’ve owned this L‘oreal Cookies and Cream palette for a while (please check my post for the swatches here). However, I didn’t really get the chance to play with until now. For the tutorial below, I followed the instruction from the back of the palette. Personally I won’t do it this way since I find that it’s not smoky enough for me.

Also, I recommend everyone to use a primer on the lid before eyeshadow application. Although the pigments are pretty good, the eyeshadows didn’t really have any staying power. The reason why I didn’t apply any primer is because I was testing for creasing and such. If you have an oily lid, you’d probably want to apply primer.


1. I applied the 2nd lightest eyeshadow (a silver) from the palette all over the lid.

2. On the crease, I applied the medium (silver grey) eyeshadow using a fluffy blending brush.

3. Using Smashbox bullet brush, I applied the darkest eyeshadow (graphite) on the outer V.

4. I blended the outer V using a clean blending brush.

5. Using a clean blending brush, I applied the highlighter color (vanilla) under the brow.

6. I applied the medium color (silver grey) along the lower lash line using an angled brush, and the darkest color on the outer half of the lower lash line.

7. I created a slight winged liner using L’oreal Super Slim Liquid Eyeliner along the upper lash line.

8. I also lined my waterline using L’oreal Smoldering Voluminous pencil liner.

9. I curled my lashes and applied mascara.

10. I also applied false eyelashes Fleur Fleur in 201.

11. I filled my brows using Shu Uemura Hard Formula no. 9.

12. For the face, I applied UD Naked foundation.

13. On the cheeks, I applied L’oreal Rose Gold Visible Lift blush.

14. Slightly contoured my nose using Smashbox contour/highlight trio palette (discontinued).

15. On the lips, I filled it in using L’oreal Infallible lipliner in Rose.

Smoky Pink

This is a requested look by one of my Twitter followers, @Cara_ev! She requested for a pink smoky look using black eyeshadow instead of brown. I’ve done something similar using peach eyeshadow in Smoking Peach, and mint in Smoky Mint, and silver in Silver Smoke…well you get the gist! All my smoky eyes tutorials are listed under Tutorials –> Smoky Eyes.

1. Using a synthetic art brush, I applied Maybelline Inked in Pink color tattoo all over my eyelid. You can substitute this with any cream base or eye primer of your choice.

2. Using Smashbox Bullet Brush, I applied Urban Decay Blackout eyeshadow (from Naked 2 palette) on the outer V.

3. Using a clean blending brush (emphasis on the CLEAN), I blended Blackout towards the center of the lid.

4. Repeat step 2-3 several times until you reach enough intensity from the black eyeshadow to your own liking.

5. I applied Blackout underneath the outer half of the lower lid using a small shader brush.

6. Using a clean flat eyeshadow brush, I applied L’oreal Infallible eyeshadow in Sweet Strawberry.

7. I applied L’oreal Sweet Strawberry infallible eyeshadow on the inner corner of the lower lid using an angled eyebrow brush.

8. Using Kate Sharp eyeliner, I created a winged liner along the upper lash line. You can skip this if you’d like.

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

10. I curled my lashes using Shu Uemura eyelash curler.

11. I applied Clinique lash building primer on top and lower lashes, and then applied Maybelline Express Volume Turbo Boost mascara on top of it.

12. I filled in my brows using Shu Uemura brow pencil. I applied MAC Brule under the brows.

For the hair, I applied hot rollers all over, and I straightened my hair using Chi hair straightener for the first photo. On the second photo, I curled my hair using curling irons (curling it all outwards), in big sections.

Silver Smoke

Please do forgive me for the unrully brows. I’ve been trying to grow them out so I can try out BrowHaus at Grand Indonesia, but I’m dying to tweeze them myself! *breathe in breathe out* Hopefully by the end of the week I can get them waxed!

If you read my tweets (follow my twitter: @KireiMakeup), I’ve wanted to do a tutorial using my Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette. Today’s look is a silver smoky makeup. I think the look would look great on brides and those who prefer smoky makeup for prom/parties. Lots of drama on this look. Very intense! Lots of silver, lots of shimmer and very dark around the lashes and outer V.

If you aren’t too comfortable with blending or applying eyeshadow on the outer V, alternatively what you can do is to apply silver all over the lid and create a heavy liner on upper and lower lashes with black eyeliner (as well as on the waterline). Top it off with lots and lots of mascara.

With this look, try to “wing” the smoky eyes slightly for an uplifting effect. You need a good blending brush (or two) for the smoky effect.


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

2. On the lid, I applied Pistol from UD Naked 2 palette using a flat eyeshadow brush.

3. On the inner part of the lid, I applied Suspect from UD Naked 2 palette using a flat eyeshadow brush (not in picture).

4. Using a small fluffy blending brush, I appliedĀ  Blackout from UD Naked 2 palette on the outer V and slightly on the crease.

5. Using Smashbox bullet brush, I blended the crease out to ensure there’s no harsh line.

6. Using an angled eyebrow brush, I applied Suspect on the inner half of the lower lid and Blackout on the outer half.

7. Using Blackout, I created a winged liner along the upper lashline, making the liner thicker on the outer part and thinner on the inner part.

8. I lined my waterline using L’oreal Voluminous Smoldering eyeliner.

9. I curled my lashes and applied Maybelline Volume Express Turbo Boost mascara on both top and bottom lashes.

10. I filled my brows using Dollywinked brow pencil. I applied Foxy from Naked 2 palette under the brows.

11. (optional), I applied Ardell Demure and 110 false eyelashes on the upper lashes.

12. For the face, I applied Estee Lauder double wear light foundation using a foundation brush from the center of the face blending it towards the outer perimeter of the face.

14. On the cheeks, I applied MAC Cubic.

15. I applied MAC Shadowy on the sides of the nose.
