Smokey Eyes tips

  • Use your eye shadow brush to apply the lightest shade of your eye shadow first. Start from the inside corner of your eyelid on both your upper and lower eyelids.
  • Take the slightly darker shade of  your eye shadow shade and sweep it over the entire eyelid.
  • Add the darkest shade of eye shadow to the outside corner of your eyes, rub it in a ‘C’ shape around the eye lid from the point at the upper edge of your lash line to the inner eye lids.
  • For a more dramatic look to your classic smoky eye, apply a little of your dark shadow under your eye onto your lower lid.
  • You can also use an eyeliner pencil to draw a thick line across your upper lash line only. Then, use your makeup brush or fingertip to blur the edges upwards.
  • Blend your shadows and clean off excess makeup.
