Smokey Eye Tutorial
Learn How to Create A Smokey Eye
Apply a thin layer of eye shadow primer to your lids to keep color from smearing. This Eyeshadow Primer Potion by Urban Decay is a good choice for ensuring a perfect dusk-til-dawn look.
Next, choose a light eye shadow color and sweep it gently across your entire lid. Also use the lighter color to create a shimmering stripe just below your lower lashes. With a slightly darker, but complementary color, apply eye shadow just in the crease of your eyelid. Colors that work well together are silver and gray, copper and cocoa, sand and rust, or lilac and deep purple.
With an angled eye shadow brush, blur the colors to create a smoldering look. This Angle Shadow Brush by Bobbi Brown is heavenly for perfect contouring.
Using dark eyeliner, trace your upper lids from above the pupil to the outer edge. Use the same pencil to dot below the lower lids. Gently blend both lines.
Use your favorite mascara to add luxurious volume to your lashes and finish off your sensuous, smokey look. MAC False Lashes Mascara's creamy formula builds cat-walk volume without clumping.
For an even more dramatic look, line the inner rims of your lower lids to add definition. Kapow! You’re ready for the red carpet.
