Smoky eyes are in fashion these days. However, there are some important points that must be kept in mind. Smoky eyes is done with one color of eye shadow. Brown, grey, or black are good choices. Dark plum or navy colors are for the brave. Eyeliners should also match in eye shadow color match.
How to Make Smoky Eyes?
Apply a thin layer of foundation across your lids. Better still use a primer or concealer for this purpose. This will help the makeup to stay on longer and gives you a bold and vibrant look.
Then, sweep on a flesh-colored shadow or powder. Use a light shimmer if you’re going for a fancy look. Using your pencil, trace your lash line. Always work from the inside and get thicker towards the end, flicking for a fancy and cat-eye fashion. Start by sweeping on a layer of shadow close to the lash line with your eye shadow brush, diffusing the eyeliner. Use your lightest color here, a touch of white or pearl shimmer is great in this case. With a light hand, and a slightly darker color, cover the middle of your lid fanning out towards the crease. Race along your crease and socket then flick out towards the corner of your brow bone with a much darker color. This gives a sexy, smoldering look and gives your eyes heaps of definition and appeal.
Apply a nude shimmering color to your brow bone. By accentuating the highest point on your face you are bringing out your facial features and really complimenting your eyes. With a soft brush, blend away any harsh lines to make it a more soft ‘smokey’ effect.
Take a white eye pencil and line your waterline up to the tear-duct, this will make your eyes appear wider, brighter and fresher and make you look more active and healthy, also whiter eyes look more beautiful as well as they bring out the color of your iris. Apply two coats of mascara on curled lashes to polish the smoky eye look.
