Still don't know how to do an easy smokey eye?
|I used the ELF party palette for this look, spike lashes, and maybelline's define a line eyeliner|
I still read comments every now and then about people who just cannot do a smokey eye. Slapping dark eye shadow on your eye is not gonna do it. The trick is this. You need a base. Hold on. There's no need to buy a base – By base I mean your black eyeliner pencil. Yes that same one. Apply it to the area you want to smoke out … hence your outer corners [i suggest not to go that far out initially] or even on the middle of the lid, and if you have small eyes don't go too further in the eye [darker shades will make your eyes smaller. ]
So simple steps.
Grab your eye pencil / cream liner
apply it to your eye area you want to darken
blend out a bit with a clean finger
press the eyeshadow against it
Then grab a blending blush
Blend the edges w/ a shimmering [optional] lighter or contrasting shade
It will give you that smoked out effect :)
With smokey eye - use a shimmery white eyeshadow on your inner corner and highlight your browbone.
Liner is essential with smokey eyes
and False lashes are indeed optional. But for me it is a must for nightime w/ smokey eyes.
Smokey eyes can be wearable during the day - with the same method - BUT use easier more wearable shades :)
Hope it somehow helps.
I have an exam tomorrow so I'm definitely not very excited about it haha.
