6 tricks to help ladies achieve the perfect smoky eye

The smokey eye is the perfect simple way to make your eyes pop and stand out, on a night out. Different colours and shades could be used to achieve this look depending on what looks best on you.

Follow steps achieve the perfect look.

Step 1: Apply some eyeliner on your upper and lower lid. For the upper lid, make a thin line by staying as close to the eyelashes as possible. To make your eye appear slightly bigger, extend the eyeliner beyond your eye and give it a slight curve upward. For underneath the eye.

Step 2: Use a gray or silver color for the inner and lower part of your lid. You can also put some on the bottom, inner part of your eye. Always use a lighter color for this section of your eye when doing your eyeshadow.

Step 3: Use a neutral color for your eyelid above the crease and brush from the inside outward. Also, brush up into your eyebrow.

Step 4: Now to create the dramatic look, use a black or dark gray eyeshadow, brush along your crease, from where your eyeliner ends into the middle of your eyelid. Put some black shadow along your eyeliner for a bolder look.  Put some eyeshadow on the lower part of your eye, starting from the outside of the lid, working inwards.

Step 5: Now it’s time to blend this look together. Use a gray, or pale purple, Blend above your crease and outside of all the areas where you placed your black. Continue to blend along the bottom part of your eye.

Step 6: Put on your mascara. Some like to put it on before, however, I would advise applying the mascara last as eye-shadow can get stuck in your eyes.
