How to create a beautiful smokey eye
1- Start from the eye makeup first. Prep your eyes by applying with a primer on your lids first.
2- Apply a mid-tone shadow all over the lid. Choose some grey, brown or slatey shades to create a smokey base on your lids.
3- Now apply a thin line of liner along the lashline. Keep as thin as you can draw. If you are a beginner, try a pen eyeliner or a gel formula.
4- Now take a dark shadow like black or charcoal and apply on the halfway up the lid and into the lid shadow. Blend it well.
5- Now apply the same shadow on the lower lashline by gently pressing the brush and blend well. after that keep the brush aside and smudge out with fingers for achieving a smokey and smudgy effect.
6- Now fill in your brows and give them a clean and well-made effect. I have defined my brows with The Body Shop Brow Sport Brow Liner.
7- Now the time is applying your favorite mascara for a full lash effect. Apply 3 to 4 coats.
8- Now you have completed your eye makeup and go ahead with the rest of the makeup process. Keep it light and natural. Apply a natural pink blush and a nude lipstick on your lips. I mean to say that the other parts of your makeup should be soft and natural at the comparison of your eye makeup so that all attention be on your eyes.
Apart from this trick, you can simply apply the shadow all over your lids and blend it over and over towards the outer corner and get a smokey effect. After that apply a kajal or gel eyeliner along the bottom lid and lash line and smudge well with a brush.
Just remember that blending is the key trick of this makeup. All depends on how well you can blend your shadow and liner. I also have learned it after a lot of practice and still, I’m a learner. I share what I learnt from my experience with you all, hope it helps!
