A couple months ago, I wrote about some tips to get the perfect smokey eye. This time it’s going to be a quick tutorial on how to actually do smokey eyes.
Some things you need, 2 eyeshadows, one dark and one light (you can opt for any colour you want), an eyeliner, eyeshadow brush, blending brush and an eyeliner brush.
Smokey eyes are known for being dark and smouldering, but you can also keep it light if you want to. Also opt for colours that compliment your eye colour.
STEP 1: Apply
Apply a dark eyeshadow to your crease. Start with your upper lash line and work your way up to the crease.
Apply a lighter shade below your eyebrow until it reaches the crease.
STEP 2: Blend
Make sure you blend both colours properly so that there are no lines.
STEP 3: Line Away
Apply an eyeliner to your lower lashes and smudge. The eyeliner can be metallic colours or softer colours like brown or grey.
Now using a black kohl eyeliner, draw a line on the top lash line. Smudge this as well.
STEP 4: Mascara
Make sure you curl your lashes before you apply mascara. Two coats of mascara should be enough.
