Well, in the case of makeup, we’ve seen the smoky eyes fabulously still making the covers for years, and it’s not some makeup fad fading anytime soon.
So, if you’ve been dying for years now to get that look and never knew how, follow these simple steps to get not one but five ways to get smoky eyed:
1. Chunky Smoky
For this look, you will need a very dark eye grey or deep blue eye shadow. Always start your smoky eyes by prepping your eyelids with a concealer. It makes your eye makeup adhere better and stay in place all day or all night. Line your upper and lower lids with a gel-based black eye liner. Follow through the lines with a pencil eye liner. The top of end of your eye color should be very close to your eyebrows. Mark this point lightly with your pencil eye liner. Take your eye shadow and fill in from top lid to the line you just marked.
2. Cat Smoked
Take a black, gel-based eyeliner with a flat, broad tip. Line your upper eyelid and extend on the outer corners, letting the flat tip define the end. Extend on the inner corners as well with a pointed edge. Line the lower lids as well. Imagine your eyelid cut in half. Take your eyeliner and make a mark from the top half of your eyelids, all the way to the cat’s eye you drew on your top eye line. Make it a sexy, curvy line. Color the outer corners with a black eye shadow. Fill in the inner half with a much lighter eye shadow in nude shade.
3. Moderately Smoky
Line your eyelids with gel-based eyeliner. Follow through with a pencil. Line the lower half of your top eyelids with grey or deep blue eye shadow, then create a gradient by filling in the remaining top half with contrastingly light, ideally nude, shade or two.
4. Soft Smoky
Line your eyelids with a black pencil eyeliner or eye shadow. Make a gradient of nude colors. If you choose brown shades, place the dark brown tint closest to your eyelids, then gradually move up using the next two lighter shades.
5. Metallic smoked
Follow any of the steps in 1, 2 or 3 above, this time using metallic shades.
In all of these techniques, don’t forget to add eyelash drama to your smoky eyes. Extend with falsies or, get an eyelash extension beforehand. Shape and fill in your eyebrows well.
