How you can make
your Smokey Eyes makeup?
Step 1: Contour
Go to the outline of your eyes with a black pencil. You have to make the thicker line along the top lashes.
Step 2: Apply the base color
With a brush or a special sponge, apply the base coat to the eyelids, about halfway through the eyebrows, blending it gently.
Step 3: Apply the contour color
With a special sponge for makeup, apply the color blush for contour around your eyes, mixing well with the pencil line.
Step 4: Apply color to the eye bent
Close the eye halfway and apply the color at the top, where is the eye bent.
Step 5: Apply the shadows
You will now need to define the outer corners of your eyes using a horizontal “V” shape. The bottom end from the “V” will control the shape of your eyes apparent.
Step 6: Last finishes
With a medium-soft round brush, mix the eye shadow on the upper eyelid. With a flat brush, mix the eye shadow on the lower eyelid.
Too much shade for Smokey Eyes makeup can turn an event makeup into a club makeup. So, depending on the party you are attending, choose the ideal way to make your Smokey Eyes Makeup.
