Smoky eye makeup tips

OHMYGOSSIP – The smoky eye look has been around for ages and it’s definitely here to stay. The application of smoky eye makeup can be quite intimidating, but it’s actually pretty simple as long as you have the know-how. With these smoky eye makeup tips and a little practice, you can be a pro in no time.

Listed below are very simple yet effective smoky eye makeup tips. With these tips, there’s no way you can go wrong in achieving that sultry and dramatic smoky eye look.

1. Smoky Eye Makeup Tips – Selecting Your Colors

You will need three eye shadow shades of the same color – light, medium and dark. Get a shimmery highlighter with a flesh tone for your light shade, your medium shade should be matte and darker than your skin tone, and your darkest shade is your contour color which could be matte or shimmery depending on your mood.

2. Smoky Eye Makeup Tips – Eyeshadow Application

Apply the lightest shade eyeshadow from your brow bone down to the crease of your eye. Using the same shade, dab a small amount on the duct of each eye to make your eyes look brighter. Then gradually apply the mid-tone shade across your eyelids. Make sure to blend it well with your highlight or light shade eyeshadow. After, carefully draw a thick line with the contour shade on the top of your eyelashes and spread the color on the edge of your eyelid halfway through the crease. Then use your contour shade to apply a light line along your bottom lashes.

3. Smoky Eye Makeup Tips – Eyeliner and Mascara

Choose an eyeliner color that closely matches your eyeshadow shades. Draw a thick line across your top lids and apply it on your lower eyelids three-fourths of the way. Curl your lashes and apply 2 coats of black or dark brown mascara on your upper and lower lashes. Now your sultry and dramatic smoky eye makeup look is complete.

If you wish to make your eyes appear larger, you can open them up by using a light rather than dark eyeliner to line the rims of your inner eye. Then dab on pale eyeshadow on the center of each eyelid.

If you want to draw attention to your smoky eye look, so try not to overdo your lip makeup. Keep your lips neutral to give your eye makeup its real impact. It would be best to opt for pinkish lips. Use a beige shade of lip pencil and lightly smudge it over the top and lower lips for a matte finish.

A smoky eye look entails a lot of eye makeup and it is inevitable that these dark colors will drop down your cheeks. So it would be wise to apply your foundation after you have applied your eye makeup. All your efforts of a carefully applied foundation would go to waste when specks of eyeshadow come raining down your cheeks.
