Smokey Eyes Makeup Tutorial – Black Owned Makeup Brands Challenge | B.O.M.B. Makeup Challenge


Hey, everyone. Welcome back and hello to you new people too. Today I’m doing the Black Owned Makeup Brand
challenge. Just a quick note for those of you who don’t
know, all of my newer videos are available with closed captioning. I started doing that I think at the beginning
of this year. If you need it, just click on the little “CC”
button so you can watch this video without sound if you prefer. I wanted to shoot this video before I went
to Dragon Con, but I ran out of time. This is the soonest that I could get it up. A lot of the brands in this video are indie
brands. They are brands that I found at the Makeup
Show Orlando or the Makeup Show New York. I hope that you’ll be interested in checking
them out. I’ll make sure and put information on everything
that I use in this video in the description box below. I’m going to go ahead and get started. To start, I’m applying Beauty Bakerie Pancake
with the Urban Decay large eye shadow brush as my eye shadow primer all over my eye. Beauty Bakerie is a company owned by Cashmere. She’s based in California and her story is
very powerful. She’s a breast cancer survivor. I feel like a lot of the stuff she posts on
Instagram is very motivating and uplifting. I really like her Instagram and I like her
brand for that reason. Next I’m going to take the color Moon Bar
and the Urban Decay tight line brush and pat it on the lid. I’m going to use Magnolia Makeup Twinkle and
the Moon Dust brush. I first learned about Magnolia Makeup at the
Makeup Show Orlando and when I saw them again in New York earlier this year I had to pick
up the color Twinkle because it’s amazing. Yes, I have fallout on my face and I will
clean it up in a minute. I really want to get this color onto that
blue base so that it has something to stick to. I am bringing it a little bit up above what
my crease is, but it’s kind of still hidden because I have hooded eyes. I’m going to have to work on that afterwards. I’m applying Moon Bar to my lower lid. Then, I’m going to use the smudger brush to
apply Twinkle on top of Moon Bar. I really love using a brush like this for
my lower lid because I feel like it helps to make the color blend out. Next, I am going to use Beauty Bakerie Crumb
Cake and the Sigma E45 tapered blending brush. I’m going to work in that crease. Since I have hooded eyes, I’m trying to go
with a shape that works with my hooded eyes. I used way too much product so I’m going to
just use a Q-tip to take some of that away. It’s one of the benefits to working with a
cream product is that it’s easier to remove it and then blend it out. Really, all I’m trying to do is create a smooth
gradient between my transition color and the blue on my lid. Part of the issue when you have hooded eyes
is that you really need to do your makeup with your eyes open so that you can see where
the color is going … What the color is going to look like when your eyes are open. What I used to do all the time was apply really
pretty eye shadow that you could only see if my eyes were closed. Which, you know, that’s fine, but it kind
of defeats the purpose if you want other people to see it. I thought I had the AJ Crimson cream foundation
because I know I bought it a couple years at the Makeup Show Orlando. I must have given it away to somebody who
it was a better match for because for me it was a little dark. Anyway, I just threw on the Nyx Hydra Touch
Foundation in Porcelain and now to do the rest of my face. I’m going to use the color from the Lip Bar
called Dark and Stormy as my contour color because grays are great on my skin tone. I’m just going to put a little line there
and take my Real Techniques Duo Fiber contour brush and hopefully blend that shit out. This is actually a lipstick that I like a
lot. I’m just taking my foundation brush that has
a little bit of foundation left on it and softening that up a little bit. Now, I’m going to take Shea Moisture and this
is Plum Mineral Blush. It’s a cream blush and this is a Sigma F15. I’m just going to put a little bit of this
on the blush or on the brush and apply it. I actually think this is a really, really
good color for my skin color. I think it’s a very flattering blush shade. Again, I’m going to take my brush with a little
bit of foundation left on it and just go back over my cheeks. Holy crap, I just tapped my brush the wrong
way I guess. Look at it, it cracked. I need to add a highlighter. I’m going to use Nyx Lavender Lust because
somebody begged me to use this in my next look. I’m just blending this out with my fingertip
and I’m going to go back over it with my brush. Back to the eye makeup. By the way, check out my brows. Don’t they look great? It’s been almost 3 weeks since I had my Microblading
procedure done. I’m really happy. I’m going to be going back in 2 weeks to get
them touched up. I’ll put a link to that video so you can check
out the whole procedure because it’s really cool. I’m going to use Beauty Bakerie Teddy Graham
with this angled eye shadow brush, I think … Angle brow brush to add a little highlight
at the inner corner. I’m just sort of drawing a sideways V at the
inner corner. Then, I’m going to go back and blend it out. I’m going to use this Moon Dust brush to blend
it out because that’s probably going to work. As far as highlights go at the inner corner,
this is pretty subtle for me, but I think it kind of works because the lid shade is
so bold overall. Now, I’m going to take Beauty Bakerie Belgian
Biscotti and the Sigma winged liner brush. Which, is like E6 and I’m going to put this
at the roots of my lower lashes. If you want a tight line or out it on the
water line, you absolutely can. I think I’m going to put a little bit up here
at the outer upper lash line. Now, at this point if you want to put on mascara
or fill in your brows, you should do that. I have eye lash extensions so I’m not going
to put on mascara. I’m going to line my lips with Blackmail. I’m going to put on Glamorous Chicks Love
Potion. This really is an amazing purple color and
it’s got like a minty smell, taste think going on. It makes me think of OCC Lip Tars. Glamorous Chicks is another brand I found
at the Makeup Show. I was in the Makeup Show New York earlier
this year when Brittney and I saw their booth and we both had to buy things because they
make really gorgeous lip colors. I have 2 gorgeous lip colors by them, Love
Potion, the one that I’m wearing and this one is Futuristic Blue. They’re both absolutely gorgeous, beautiful. Here’s my finished eye look. Now, I’m not going to try and f*ck the camera
with my eyes. Oops, I said a bad word. Here’s my finished look. I hope you enjoyed my take on the Black Owned
Makeup Brands challenge. All of the brands that I featured, I will
put in the description box below. If you enjoyed this tutorial, make sure you
