Truthfully, I'm not big on award shows, I barely keep up with them. I do like seeing the dresses but I don't stay up till 3:00 am to watch the live broadcast or anything! LOL!
The Cannes festival makeup looks were EVERYWHERE this year, I couldn't get away!
The one look I adored though was Cheryl Cole and her awesome ivory and red dress and the smoky eyes! I knew it was a look I had to recreate! So I thought I would share it with you guys! :)
Step 1: I haven't used concealer yet, I will do that at the end. I have primed my eyes and drawn on a sort of winged liner with my black eye pencil.
Step 2: Smudged the liner slightly.
Step 3: Then I used a black eyeshadow and patted it all over the lid, up to the crease.
Step 4: Then I used a copper shadow, you can use brown too.. And made the shape shown below and blended it out in a windshield wiper motion.
Step 5: I kept blending till I got rid of the harsh lines and then I put a highlight colour under the eyebrow and at the inner corner and lower lash line. Cheryl's highlight is more shimmery but I nun have that colour. :<

|Inner corners and lashline|
Step 6: Put on black eyeliner on my lower waterline and tightlined as well. I also used a curling and volumising mascara for my lashes. I was too lazy for falsies. :/
|The finished look!|
I hope you like my tutorial! I definitely plan to wear this look out.
I would love to hear any suggestions for tutorials that you would like to see me do!
