How-To: Smoky Eye

I don’t know anything sexier than a well-done smoky eye. Who can’t rock this look? It’s totally universal..just pick the right colors and your good to go.

Plus, it’s really carefree, smudgy, edgy, messy, ect. NOT nit picky. Have fun with it!

So here’s what you’ll need to achieve that seductive stare:

  • An eyeshadow primer
  • Your favorite mascara
  • Eyeshadow colors of your preference (you need a lid color, a crease color, a dark, smoky color, and a highlight)
  • Optional: Eyeliner

First things first. Prime, prime, prime! Primer is one of the most important steps, so don’t skip it. QUICK TIP: Less is more. You don’t want a goopy, sticky mess on your lid from using too much product.

Now, the actual fun part. The eyeshadow! Take your lid color first and pat it on your lid. Easy-peasy, right? Now, go in with the crease color, shading in the crease of your eye. This should subtly make your eyes a little more dramatic. Then, taking your darkest color, and layer it over the crease color, blending it out to create a smoky gradience. You can layer more color until you get the feel you want, but don’t go totally Racoon-esque. Taking your highlight, dust it on your brow bone and in the corner of your eyes.

Next, put on your mascara. If you really want to, you can put a little eyeliner on your top lid and waterline, but it’s totally optional!

Aaand you’re done, hun. And you look SMOKIN’. ;}

  • Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer in “Original” 
  • Maybelline Expert Wear Eyeshadow in “Velvet Crush” with UD Eyeshadow in “Sin”
  • Whiplash Ultimate Mascara
  • Maybelline Eyestudio Eyeliner in “Blackest Black”

Anyway, smoky eyes are pretty chill. Mine’s very hazy and casual, but I love it. ❤

With smoky eyes, I strongly suggest you play around with fun colors. Because it’s a more, well, “smoky” look, it gives you a lot more flexibility to use bright shades on your lids to add an extra pop.

Thanks so much guys!!!. Talk to you soon.
