Achieving the perfect smokey eye


Achieving the perfect smokey eye can be difficult. There are many products on the market that claim to give you the perfect smoky look, but often they don't live up to their claims. This article will give you some tips and tricks for achieving the perfect smoky eye look.


The first step is to choose the right eyeshadow shades. You want to use two or three shades that are close in color, but not exactly the same. For example, if you have blue eyes, you might want to use a dark blue, a navy blue, and a light blue. If you have brown eyes, you might want to use a dark brown, a medium brown, and a light brown. The key is to find shadows that will blend together well.




Once you've chosen your shadow colors, it's time to start applying them. Start with the lightest color first and apply it all over your lid. Then take the next darkest shade and apply it in the crease of your eye. Use a small brush to blend the shadow upwards into the crease until it's nicely blended. Finally, take the darkest shade and apply it along your lower lash line. Again, use a small brush to blend this shadow downwards into your lower lash line until it's nicely blended.


Now that your shadows are applied, it's time to add some definition with eyeliner. Take an eyeliner pencil or gel liner and trace along your upper lash line from inner corner to outer corner. Then do the same thing along your lower lash line. Once you're happy with how much liner you've applied , start smudging both lines using a cotton swab or Q-tip. Start at either end of each line and gently rub towards the center of your lashes until both lines are nicely smudged.




If you want extra drama , consider adding false lashes ! False lashes can really make your smokey eye stand out. Just be sure not to get too heavy handed with them - too many falsies can look overdone.


Finally, finish off your look by curling your natural lashes (if needed) and applying mascara . And voila! You now have perfected the smokey eye!
