Recently I was trying to figure out a new product (the Mally Evercolor Poreless Face Defender), and I headed over to the Mally Beauty YouTube Channel. Once I got my answer, I started obsessively watching all of Mally’s videos. (And really, I mean as many as I could on my iPhone during my toddler’s nap!)
In her videos, you’ll notice that Mally always has the perfect smoky eye. Luckily, she has a video showing you how she does it! I decided to give it a try myself.
I don’t have any of Mally’s color cosmetics (that Perfect Palette looks like it is going on to my Christmas list!), so I grabbed a few things I already had to recreate the look.
Surprisingly enough, my closest brown (from the small images I could see in my phone) was in a Stila Palette. I only used Grace, but I labelled Heather so you’d know what it was. Tophat is definitely purple, but that’s kind of close to Plum, right?? Maybe….
I followed the directions that Mally gave, which mostly changed how I do my undereye area. Rather than just 1 light line of liner, I used both shadow colors under my eyes and then lined only on the waterline. I did line more into my tear duct as well, which isn’t something I normally do. I like how it looks, though since my eyes are a bit “wetter”, any lining I do into this area is very short lived. Even waterproof liner disappears in less than an hour!
I really like how the entire look came together. Brown and “plum” aren’t colors I would have put together, but the 2 shades I used worked well together. (Something tells me that they work even better together when you use the actual shades that Mally used!)
The Poreless Face Defender is amazing and I’ll have a full review soon. I’m never going to touch powder again!
What do you think? Have you ever tried to recreate a look from YouTube? I’ve done it in the past, but I don’t usually try to copy as closely as possible, instead I’ll watch to see how they line the eye or apply blush in a look. I really loved this look. Time to watch the rest of Mally’s videos!
