A step-by-step guide to creating an appealing smokey eye look

A step-by-step guide to creating an appealing smokey eye look

 

There's a fine line between pulling off a sizzling smokey eye or looking like a panda. The clincher? Blending (lots and lots of blending).

3 things to know before starting your smokey eye

  • The key is to always keep the darkest point at the lash line. It keeps the makeup really modern and fresh, and ensures you are drawing more attention to the eye vs. the makeup.

  • Keep it simple! Stick to no more than 3 shadows and a liner to pop your eyes.

  • Blend is your friend. Brushes are super important to get that blend. When it comes to a smokey eye, it doesn't matter how dark you go, or what colours you use, it's how well you can blend the liner and shadow. That's what gives it that sultry look.

How to create a classic smokey eye?

  1. Start by applying a mid-tone shadow all over the lid. Opt for greys, browns or heathers to create a subtle smokey base.

  2. Apply a liner along the lash line, making sure you're coating and depositing colour between the lashes to instantly pop the eye. Opt for a gel formula for easy application that won't budge all night!

  3. Layer a dark tone shadow like espresso, charcoal or smoke over the liner, blending halfway up the lid and into the lid shadow. Apply along the lower lash line by softly pressing the brush on to the root of the lower lashes. Then smudge out with fingers for a smokier finish.

  4. Add those all-important final touches with a mascara, layering 3-4 coats for a full lash effect.

  5. Finally, you can add a sparkle shadow with your finger to give it that real luxe finish. It's great for smoothing out the lid and giving that blend through the crease of the eye.

Voila!! There you have your Classic Smokey Eye Look to sizzle your way through a Partyyyy !!!
