Smokey Eye Makeup Tips And Guidelines

1. Ensure that your face is not oily. Unless you want your smokey eyes to smudge, use an oily face. Other than that, wash your face very well before your tutorial.

2. Use clean makeup brushes while applying your smokey eyes effect. Clean brushes will give you the right effect and allow you to easily apply your smokey eyes makeup.

3. Smokey eyes are suitable for night events

4. Nude lips accentuate smokey eyes. If you go heavy on the eyes, you don’t need bright colors like red, purple, pink, and so on your lips. A simple nude color will do.

5. Use original makeup products. If you want your smokey eyes to last longer, you should buy your products from a very good brand. There are several makeup brands out there, which is why getting an authentic one might be difficult. Nevertheless, get a good brand and buy from them.

How Do You Create Smokey Eye Makeup?

I always tell the people who have been privileged to learn under me that every makeup is an art. You’re an artist and all you’re doing is adding special effects to your already beautiful face. Below are the steps for creating the smokey eyes effects:

●      You would first have to apply a mid-tone shadow on your eyelids. For a better smokey base, it would be better to use the color grey or brown. You can find all-natural eyeshadow from Jane Iredale from Natural Healthy Concepts.

●      Pick up your eyeliner and apply it along the lash line. You must do this while ensuring that you’re able to get some color between the lashes in order to enable it to pop.

●      The next thing you have to do is to apply a dark tone shadow liner for example charcoal or espresso over the liner. Blend it into the lid shadow. Apply it to the lower lash line, in order to do this, you would have to press the bottom of the brush on the lashes, spread it out with your fingers to give you the smokey look.

●      You can add any finishing touch with the mascara to give it the full lash effect.

●      Add sparkle with your fingers

You must know that you may not end up with the exact same smokey effect that your friend got. That is not the goal. Your main goal is to have one that looks beautiful for you. There are lots of factors that influence the final look of your smokey eye makeup, most of them are in your choice of colors, your choice of lash and some others.

You must also know that the shape of your face differs from that of a friend. You are trying to create something that looks unique for yourself. For an extra little advice, before you embark on a journey of keeping yourself the smokey makeup, you can check out your favorite celebrity. Try to copy exactly what you see and try to do it perfectly. Remember, that you may not end up with the exact same thing but in the end, you will have something close to it.

In conclusion, remember that the shape of your face will greatly influence the final outlook of your makeup. I hope this tip is helpful.
