YouTube beauty influencers, step aside. John Mayer is here to finally share the secret on how to achieving the perfect smokey eye. And as any makeup enthusiast knows well, a smokey eye is no easy task.
The “Love on the Weekend” crooner posted a series of videos on his Instagram story Sunday night (April 22), excited to finally make use of a Chanel eyeshadow palette he owns. He explained that he is doing a color study for an unexplained project, and was particularly drawn to the luxury brand’s makeup because “I really like Chanel colors.”
Mayer, who completely rejected the notion of blending brushes, insisted that the only ones needed to achieve that sultry dark look are the little foam sponge applicators that come with makeup palettes. The tutorial then begins with a proper base shade: copper. He shared that a tenderness in application is key.
