Laura Carmichael, AKA "Lady Edith" from one of my favorite shows, Downton Abbey, is constantly killing it on the red carpet. Her makeup is always flawless, and I was totally feeling her gray-black smoky eye at the Golden Globes from a couple of weekends ago. I was able to get my gorgeous friend Beulah (check out her blog!) to be my model for this look, so I decided to change it up and give Beulah a navy blue smoky eye. You can adapt this tutorial to whatever color you want! I knew navy blue would look great on Beulah, so I just ran with it. Read on for the full tutorial!

  1. Start off by applying a navy blue eyeshadow base. I am using this one by NARS
  2. Apply a matte, navy blue eyeshadow on top of your eyeshadow base. 
  3. Blend the edges of your blue eyeshadow well into the crease. We don't want any harsh edged! I'm using a stiff, fluffy brush to blend.
  4. Using a tapered blending brush, apply a mid-tone matte brown eyeshadow into the crease to help blend the eyeshadow out.
  5. Take your matte navy blue eyeshadow and bring it underneath your lower lashline.
  6. Take a matte, black eyeshadow and blend it close to your upper lashline to add to the smoky eye effect.
  7. Apply a black pencil eyeliner onto your waterline. If your eyes are sensitive, then you can skip this step.
  8. Apply mascara. Since Beulah has craaaazy gorgeous lashes, I didn't add any falsies. Feel free to add some individual false lashes at this part if you're feeling bold!
  9. Apply a cream blush. I wanted this look to have a nice glow to it, hence why I am using a cream blush.
  10. Apply a neutral pink-peach lipstick.

This look is so easy to do, and adds the perfect amount of smoulder to a night out on the town. And for my brown-eyed beauties, navy blue really makes your eyes pop!

Special thanks to Beulah for being my model for this look. Be prepared to see a lot more of her here on Brikasia! What's your favorite look to wear for a night out on the town?
