 How to do Perfect Smokey Eyes

Steps in brief:
1. Comb your eyebrows and fill it in with an eye shadow color that is the same as
your hair color.
2. Take your highlighting brush and use either a white, gold or beige color. Apply
this color underneath your eyebrow.
3. Take your eye shadow applicator brush and dip it into grey eye shadow. This you
will apply all over your eyelid or just in the fold of your eye.
4. Take a tissue and clean your eye shadow applicator brush. Take the same brush
and dip it into black eye shadow. Apply the eye shadow in the fold of your eye
but at the outside corner of your eye – making a little V as you go downwards to
the outside corner of your eyelid.
5. Take your eye shadow blending brush and blend in the black eye shadow that you
applied.
6. Take a black eye liner pencil, making sure that it is not too sharp and draw a line
just above your eyelashes. If you do it on yourself, close one of your eyes and
look with the other eye in the mirror so that you can see what you are doing.
Place your finger at the outside corner of your eye and softly pull your eyelid so
that it is easier to apply your eyeliner. Draw the line almost into your eyelash line.
Do it on both eyes and then take your eyeliner brush, dip it into black eye shadow
and just “smear” the color gently over the eyeliner line. This will soften the look.
7. Take some black mascara and apply one or two coats onto your eyelashes.
8. For a very dramatic look, you might want to put on some individual lashes and
finish that off with a touch of mascara.

9. A smoky eye do not always have to be black, you can use various color such as
brown, plum, etc. Just make sure that you stay in the same color chart when doing
it with another color. Buy eye shadows that come in a trio of the same color.
