How to Create the Perfect Smoky Eye

Smoky eyes are one of the most popular looks in makeup right now. They can be dramatic and sexy, or subtle and classic. No matter what type of smoky eye you are aiming to create, there are certain steps that will help you achieve a great result. Here is a step-by-step guide to creating the perfect smoky eye.

Step 1: Prep Your Skin

Before you begin applying makeup, it’s important to prep your skin. Start by washing your face and applying a moisturizer. This will help keep your skin hydrated and give you a smooth base for the rest of your makeup.

Step 2: Prime Your Eyes

The next step is to apply eyeshadow primer to your lids. This will help the eyeshadow stay in place and last longer.

Step 3: Choose Your Color Palette

Now it’s time to decide which colors you want to use for your smoky eye. You can use one color for a more subtle look, or mix a few different shades for a more dramatic effect. Try to pick colors that will complement your eye color and skin tone.

Step 4: Apply Your Eyeshadow

Using an eyeshadow brush, start by applying the lightest shade to your lids. Then, take a medium-shade eyeshadow and blend it into the crease of your eye. Finally, use a darker shade of eyeshadow and apply it to your outer corner, blending outward.

Step 5: Line Your Eyes

Once you’ve applied your eyeshadow, it’s time to line your eyes. You can use either a pencil liner or a liquid liner. To create a smoky effect, use a smudging tool to blur the lines.

Step 6: Highlight

Once you’ve created your smoky eye, it’s time to add some highlight. Use a light-colored eyeshadow or an eyeshadow primer to add a bit of shimmer to your lids.

Step 7: Define Your Lashes

The final step is to define your lashes. Start by curling your lashes with an eyelash curler. Then, apply a few coats of mascara to make your lashes look thicker and more voluminous.

Creating a perfect smoky eye isn’t as hard as it looks. Just follow these seven simple steps and you’ll be ready to rock your new look. With a bit of practice, you’ll be able to perfect your smoky eye in no time.
