Smokey eyes are one of the most popular and trendy current makeup looks. They traditionally include three different shades of eyeshadow: a dark, medium, and light shade. These different shades blend together to create the perfect contoured and dramatic look. This dark style is a perfect choice for a party or a date night out. Traditionally, smokey eyes are renowned as a gorgeous nighttime makeup look. This eye makeup style is generally considered to be formal and elegant.
Creativity goes a long way when it comes to smokey eye makeup. There are many different variations of smokey eyes that make this style perfect for a wide variety of occasions.
Follow The Steps Below For A Glamorous Smokey Eye.
Step 1: Darken those brows baby: When going for a more dramatic look, darkening the brows a little gives the perfect balance of boldness and structure.
Step 2: Smoke those eyes out: There’s just something incredibly sexy about a smokey eye. Take a small fluffy blending brush and add your favorite dark brown eyeshadow. Blend your shadow upwards toward your brow bone and just a little above your crease.
Diffuse the darker brown with a lighter and warmer color. I like to use a reddish brown or an orange shade for this. Remember, the key to this is not to go too dark and make sure to blend, blend blend!
Step 3: Don’t forget your water line: Adding some dark eyeliner to your waterline is the perfect way to turn things up a few notches.
I like to apply a black eyeliner to the water line first then blend it downwards with a brown eyeshadow to create a gradient effect and dimension.
Step 4: Tear Duct Glow: Placing a little shimmer in your inner tear duct every so gently just opens up the eye and literally makes you look more radiant and youthful instantly!
Step 5: Fluff up those lashes: Glam up your look with fuller lashes! Having fuller lashes ties your entire eye look together seamlessly.
