The secret of those beautiful smokey eyes you see in glossy magazine and shows is the proper blending of lighter colors into the darker. One thing you need to keep in mind is to keep your eyes smokey but to stay away from dark browns and black. The other options are to go for a deep purple, a gold-brown or champagne base with bright blue and peach base with green hue. Here are some easy steps to get that perfect look without messing around.
You will require Eyeliner, Makeup brushes, Mascara, Eye primer, 2 Shadows: One light, one darker and here is how you can get those smokey eyes. Begin by applying a light shade of eyeshadow or mineral concealer to the under eye area, and all over the top lid. Keep your eyelids oil-free to avoid them from melting into your eyelid crease.
The next step is to use the trick of eyeliner. Depending on the color of the shadow, you can line your eyes with a purple, blue or deep green liner. If your choice is typical black, brown or gray smokey eye then apply the same color liner by drawing line thicker in the middle of eye.
Once, the upper part is done, you need to move on to your bottom lashes. The key here is to use an eyeliner pencil and then run your finger over it to smudge it. After this apply a light, shimmery shadow and then blend it in darker color.
And now is the time to get the smokey effect with the perfect darker eyeshadow shade. Using an eyeshadow brush, blend in color from your lash line. You can also use sponge-tip applicator, smudge brush or a q-tip directly over the penciled area and smudge. Thou this may sound like a fine art, practice and time will make you a master of this.The final touch to your eye is to curl your lashes and enhance them by using several coats of mascara. Finally, use some natural looking blush on your cheeks. It will add some color to your complexion and you will be all set to step out with smokey eyes.
