How to Apply Smoky Eye Makeup
Smoky eye makeup is almost a common sight at night parties or glam events or even dates. This is because the smoky eye look gives a dramatic yet alluring look for the evening.
For those ladies who often use fake eyelashes, the smoky eye look is a must as it helps to camouflage the stick on part of the fake eyelashes. Below are some simple steps to create a perfect smoky eye look.
Always apply an eyeshadow base over the entire eyelid to the brow bone. This is to set the foundation for your eye makeup and helps to ensure that your eye makeup stays intact throughout the day.
Brush the darker eyeshadow color from your eyelid to midway upwards. Remember to blend the colors nicely. The darker the color, the more dramatic and smokier the effect is.
Use a thin line brush to brush on the darkest color onto the entire eyelid area.
Ensure that the colors are blended nicely. They should look gradual instead of abrupt.
Apply a liquid eyeliner closely to your lash area and also to the bottom eye line. For the bottom eyeline, start from the end of your eye corners and move it inwards. Draw up to 1/3 length.
You may choose to smudge the eyeliner with an eye brush a bit to enhance the eye effect.
Curl your eyelashes and coat volumizing mascara onto them. If you want to be more eye-catching, put on your fake eyelashes instead. Remember to curl both your real lashes and your fake lashes before you stick your fake lashes on.
Keep the rest of your makeup simple. Do not overdo your cheeks and your lips. The focus should only be on your eyes.
