4 Easy Steps To Get Perfect Smokey Eye
STEP 1 – Apply Light Eyeshadow
Use a light eyeshadow colour and apply it all over the lid. This base shade will create a smooth surface for the darker colours to apply evenly.
STEP 2 – Apply Eyeliner
Apply dark eyeliner making sure the line is thick enough to be visible when your eyes are open. Line both the top and bottom rims of your eyes with your eyeliner pencil. Use a black, charcoal eyeliner or a complementary colour of the dark eyeshadow you choosed. Make sure to go into the eyelash line itself. For perfect smokey eye be sure to fill in any bare spaces between the eyelashes. Smudge the line to create a smoky look, somewhere between liner and shadow.
STEP 3 – Apply Dark Eyeshadow
Now, using dark eye shadow colour, apply it onto the eyeliner and then blend it upward to the crease of your eyelid. When blending your eyeshadow keep as much of the colour intensity as possible along the eyelash line and particularly in the outer corners of your eyes. Continue to layer the shadow deeply enough to create the dramatic effect.
Smudge and blend so the eyeliner and eye shadows go together seamlessly. If necessary use the clean finger to soften the look.
STEP 4 – Apply Mascara
Perfect smokey eye needs perfect long eyelashes .Curl your eyelashes before applying mascara, this opens your eyes up.
Layer 3 to 4 coats of mascara for the ultimate full lash effect.
