 Quickest Smokey Eye

For a quick smokey eye, you are going to need a creamy eye pencil, a metallic grey eye shadow, an eye shadow brush, and a black mascara.

1- Start by lining your eye from top to bottom with a black pencil. Place you finger on the outer corner of the eye and then lift the skin; this makes it easier to line the upper lid. Stop just before the inner corner of the eye. Line the the lower lid by wiggling your pencil between your eye lashes. Smudge both lines using a piece of cotton.

2- Put on the metallic eye shadow starting at the outer corner of the eye and then moving across the lid by applying fast strokes . Make sure the color concentration is near the lashes.

3- Stretch the color outward from your crease to the jaw bone using the powder left on the brush. If you see hard lines in the eye shadow blend them until they disappear.

4- Take a last dip and dust some eye shadow in the crease area to create a depth effect. You can follow this technique on the lower eye lid also.

5- Finish it up with a couple of coats of black mascara on your upper lashes and a bit on your lower lashes.
