5 Steps to an Amazing Smoky Eye Makeup

Smoky eye makeup helps create a look that's incredibly sexy, chic and edgy. It's been one of the most flattering ways to showcase the beauty one's eyes, and we believe that this trend will continue to prevail.

To create an amazing smoky eye makeup look, just follow these 5 basic steps:

Step 1

This is a preparatory step - apply a make-up base on your entire eyelid. Most people tend to skip this step, but it is very important. The make-up base allows a better application of the make-up, helping the eyeshadow spread and set better and making the coloration more intense. Remember to choose a slight shade so that it won’t beat the eye make-up effect.

Step 2
Apply the eyeliner. First, you need to choose a suitable eyeliner shade. There are a variety of eyeliner shades available to choose from, depending on the effect you desire. The most common eyeliner shades used by women are black, brown and gray, because they help create a very well defined contour.

Next, begin applying the eyeliner. Eyeliner applied close to the lash line will create the eye popping effect and emphasize the smokey eye effect. For an even more intense look, you could apply the eyeliner according to your eye shape and on your waterline.

Step 3

Apply the lighter eyeshadow. Do it on your entire eyelid just like a base. Start close to the lash line from your inner corner, then work your way upwards towards your brow bone. Try to apply less eyeshadow as you work your way upwards to give it a faded effect. Use make-up brushes to apply the eyeshadow, which will help create a more precise contour.

Step 4

Apply the darker colored eyeshadow. This is applied on the outer corner of the eye, to smudge the color close to the lash line. Make sure to blend the dark colored eyeshadow towards one third of inner corner of the eye. By blending the colors well you will create a faded transition and a smokey eye effect.

Step 5

Curl your lashes. Use a lash curler to curl your lashes and apply a heavy coat of mascara. The mascara will help complete the smokey eye look making it appear incredibly gorgeous.
Done! You’ve created this sexy, funky smoky eye-makeup. Flaunt this look and let your friends envy you.
