Enhance Your Eyes with the Classic and Sultry Smokey Eyes Look
Smokey eyes is a classic, sultry makeup look that can be achieved with a variety of colours and techniques. It involves blending dark eyeshadow shades, creating a gradient effect, and enhancing the eyes’ shape with eyeliner and mascara.
Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to give yourself beautiful smokey eyes:
Step 1: Start with a clean and moisturised face. Apply a primer all over your eyelids to ensure that your eye makeup lasts longer.
Step 2: Apply a light-coloured eyeshadow all over your eyelids, up to the brow bone. This will act as a base colour and help with blending.
Step 3: Apply a mid-tone eyeshadow shade on the crease of your eyelids. Use a fluffy brush to blend the colour back and forth to create a gradient effect.
Step 4: Apply a dark eyeshadow shade on the outer corner of your eyelids, using a small brush. Blend it towards the middle of the eyelids with a fluffy brush.
Step 5: Using black or dark brown eyeliner, create a thin line along your upper lash line. You can also smudge it with a brush to create a more diffused effect.
Step 6: Apply mascara to your upper and lower lashes. If you prefer a more dramatic look, you can also apply false eyelashes.
Step 7: Finish the look by cleaning up any fallout under your eyes with a makeup wipe or concealer.
Remember, the key to beautiful Smokey Eyes makeup is blending. Make sure to use a fluffy brush and blend your eyeshadow shades well. You can also experiment with different eyeshadow colours, such as plum, navy, or emerald green, to create a unique look. Don’t forget to pair the look with neutral lip colour to balance out the drama of the eyes.
