Five Steps to Smoky Eyes

  • Prepare your eyelids with an eye primer to create an oil free surface for your makeup.

  • Apply eyeliner in the same shade as the overall eye shadow color you are using-for example, if you are using a variety of black and gray shadows, use black liner, or for a jewel-tone effect, use purple, blue, or green liner depending upon the shadows you plan to use. When drawing the line, make it thicker at the middle of the lash line.

  • Use a lighter eyeliner color for the lower lash line, and smudge it with a little bit of your shadow.

  • Dust a light, shimmery eye shadow base color from lash line to brows, and add a darker shadow below the crease, blending at the lash line until the liner is no longer visible.

  • Apply several coats of mascara on both the upper and lower lashes. For fun, try blue or purple mascara to really make smoky eyes pop.
