How To Get The Perfect Smokey Eye

I’m pretty sure all of us love to do a smoky eye, but my smoky eye usually looks like someone punched me than sexy and smouldering. Here are a couple tips that helped me out tremendously.

Primer

A primer helps the eyeshadow you apply last for longer. It also prevents it from creasing. My favourite primer is Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion.

Concealer

The downfall of smoky eyes are dark circles. Using a concealer below your eyes will cover up those pesky dark eyes. Set it with loose or transparent powder. My favourite concealer is MAC Pro LongWear.

Highlighter

Use a highlighter below your brow bone and in the inner corner of your eye. This makes your eyes seem more bright and open. My favourite highlighter is The Body Shop Shimmer Waves.

Mascara

Your lashes play a big role in a sexy smoky eye. Make sure you curl your lashes before you apply a coat or two of mascara. My favourite Mascara is Maybelline Colossal Cat Eyes.
