Smoky eyes are always in fashion and there is no sign this particular trend is dying. Key to the perfect smoky eye look is to blend properly; the colours you are using must be blended together flawlessly. We recommend following these steps to get your own gorgeous smoky eye look.
Step 1: Apply a cream concealer over your eyelid; this will create a smooth base for your eye shadow to go onto.
Step 2: Trace your top lash line from the inner corner to the outer using a pencil liner (black or grey looks best). After this, use the same pencil to dot between your lower lashes and smudge both lash lines with a cotton swab or an eyeliner brush.
Step 3: Sweep powder shadow over your lid and into your crease, blending the colour up and outward. Browns, greys and dark greens all work with black or grey liner. To give your lids a more shimmery finish and to stop colour from fading, apply a cream shadow over the concealer on your lid first, wait five minutes, then top with a matching powder shadow.
Step 4: Lightly dust a neutral eye shadow over just your brow bone. An ivory eye shadow is recommended for this step.
Step 5: Apply two coats of black mascara to your lashes and you’re done.
