Smokey eyes makeup is THE trend today! Whether Casual or Formal, smokey eyes makeup works universally with all kinds of attire and accentuates your eyes to make them look more beautiful than usual. Just follow the following steps to succeed in getting smokey eyes easily:
Prep your eyes with an eye primer that will let the eyeshadow stay on for longer. Avoid creasing by setting the primer with a setting powder.
Fill in your entire eyelid with a neutral colour like beige or fawn. Line your eyelash and waterline with kohl. Use a blending brush and smudge the kohl on the waterline. Make smaller strokes to smudge the kohl. Spread it across the waterline. Apply a bronze gold eyeshadow and fill in the eyelid up to the crease line.
Take a fluffy blending brush with a brown eyeshadow and start blending it from the outer corner of the eye. Blend it softly from the outer corner to the center of the eyelid. Use the same brown eyeshadow and fill in the crease of your eye. Blend the crease to avoid any harsh lines.
Take a small eyeshadow brush and pick some of the gold eyeshadow. Blend the gold shade on the waterline along with the kohl.
Use a shimmery pearl eyeshadow and fill in the inner corner of the eye. This will accentuate your eyes making them pop and look bigger.
Use the gold eyeshadow and use it as an accent colour and fill the center of the lid.
Now take white kohl and draw a small line right on your brow bone. Blend this with a blending brush. This adds dimension to your entire look. It will also define your brow line.
Darken the black kohl on the waterline.
Complete the look with volumizing mascara. Apply a generous amount of mascara on the upper lash. Use mascara with a smaller wand brush and apply it to the lower lashes.
That’s it! You’ll have the perfect smokey eyes to cast a spell on everybody!
