Even after all these years of creating smokey eyes I still get questions about them all the time!
So I figured the next round of eyeshadow school had better be showin’ the smoke.
The easiest way, of course.
Step one: Use a mid color and a fluffy eye brush to wash over your eye lid from lash to crease and down around your lower lash line. Don’t be shy with it down there either, it seems weird but a heavy dose of midtown brown under the eye is what’s going to make it look really blended in the end. And it’s gonna make your eyes look BIG.
Step two: Take a black eyeliner to fill in your tear line and lightly right on the lash line on top and bottom.
Step three: Using a small shadow brush and a dark eye shadow smudge and blend the eyeliner line all the way around.
Step four: Highlight beneath the arch of your brow with a soft light colored shadow (preferably with a touch of shimmer!)
Easy, Right? (The 7 sins of a smokey eye is also a good post to check out if you feel like your smokeys aren’t workin!)
