Smokey Brown Eyeshadow Tutorial with Burberry [Video]

This combination was an accidental discovery. Equal parts pretty and grunge (yin and yang?) and dipping the toes into colour clashing. Loosely inspired by Burberry Beauty.


Final Look:

  1. I absolutely love your video tutorials Karima! and Burberry :P the eye-lip combo is perfect for this kinda look and your pic quality is just amazing, so clear. Love the first picture so much, I am so glad I already have most of the products you have used here, otherwise I would be very tempted to get more of everything. <3

    • Heyyyy Claire!
      I know Burberry holds a place in your heart :P I’m glad you liked the look!
      I want to see this look on you! Also, since you’re in the know, is Pale Barley discontinued?
      Also also, your swatches of Guerlain CdF are to dieeee for! Incredibly jealous of your photography skillz! MUST HAVE.
      Much love :) xxkarima

    I love your tutorials! I get so excited when I see you’ve posted a new video. You always do a great job!

  5. youtube was in desperate need of a guru like you! It’s so helpful that you use all of the unique brands that I love but rarely see in youtube tutorials. It’s so nice to see such creative ways to use them as it helps me be more adventurous with the products I have. All of your looks are so imaginative and lovely! This one is great, I absolutely LOVE a grunge inspired smokey eye. I’m from Seattle and I see it worn all the time but this is a great way to do it a little differently :)
    I have some Becca Beach Tints and never thought to use them on my lips, I’ll be trying this look out very soon!
    Thanks for sharing these tutorials!

    P.S. I’m not sure if you take requests but, I’d love to see you re-create this Kiera Knightley Bazaar Cover in a tutorial. I love the look but can’t seem to get it quite right. I think it would be gorgeous on you and you do such an excellent job with your videos!

    • Hey Brianna!
      Thank you for all your kind words! I try to feature products that I love (tend to be niche) that aren’t raved about enough on YT. Grunge is also one of my favourite makeup genres :)
      Request noted ;) I’ve been meaning to do a vampy lip look but maybe something spring first?

  6. aww, thank you Karima for your kind words, they made my day :) as for Pale Barley, it was limited edition (?) but it won’t be available anymore nevertheless. I am so glad I already have it! Coup de Foudre is just amazing, I think it would look very pretty on you, I am really curious what you would do with the coral shade there ;) If I only could photograph my FOTDs in a way they would look pretty, I would post more, haha. But my skillz are nothing compared to yours!

    • Bummer! I was dabbling with the idea of purchasing Pale Barley but not if it’s particularly hard to find :-/
      I have to call the Australian Guerlain counter, I will be irate if CdF has come and gone already!
      I have no fotd skills! Luckily my SO can help me because I would be useless, otherwise :P

    Hello, love the look! Where were you able to buy the Suqqu brow pen? Having trouble finding it online.

    Thank you!
