Ready for the Weekend: Featuring Vesna

This week’s Ready for the Weekend look was inspired by from Vesna (@vesnamua on Instagram). She created this gorgeous dark smoky eye which is a look I definitely want to try this weekend! I love how precise the wing and cut crease are. I am a huge fan of dark smokey eyes at the moment and I love how dramatic this eye is! I have picked five Illamasqua products which would be great to recreate this eye make-up!

Powder Eyeshadows:

Powder Eyeshadow in Wolf is the perfect colour to create the brown shade all over the lid.


Obsidian would be another perfect colour to use for this eye makeup! In order to get a perfect black cut crease try using one of our new brushes, the Smoulder Brush!



Pure Pigment:

One of my favourite part of this make-up is the shimmer in the inner corner of the eye. Pure Pigment in Furore is perfect for creating a slight golden shimmer.



Precision Gel Liner:

Precision Gel Liner is the perfect product for creating a jet black winged liner along the upper lash line! Pair this with our Fine Eye Liner brush to create a neat, precise line.




The final product for this look is Masquara. Vesna’s lashes look amazing in this image so Masquara is perfect for creating long lashes that finish off this gorgeous eye make-up.



I hope you love this eye make-up as much as me! If you recreate this look yourself this weekend be sure to send us a picture. We also love seeing all your make-up looks so #Illamasqua on Instagram, @Illamasqua on Twitter or post a photo on our Facebook Wall.

Until next time, Samantha x
