Smokey eye has been a trend of makeup for quite some time, but it is still in fashion. The magic of smokey eyes is the power to transform you immediately from whatever into stylish and mysterious. Many people are not conformable with the smokey eye look for themselves as they do not know how to apply such makeup properly. Once you have put it on, you are going to love it more and more.
One of the keys for glamorous smokey eye makeup is what everybody says – “to blend it well”. Other than the blend well saying, the other one is to carefully choose your eye shadow. Depends on how matte your want for the whole look, you can choose between the shimmer and matte eye shadow.
Basically, you need three colors of eye shadow to have somkey eyes. The three colors can be named as highlight, mid-tone and contour. Highlight as it means is for highlight purpose therefore you can choose a shimmer one. The mid-tone should be matte one as this is the soul for your smokey eyes. Choose a color two darker than you skin tone. The final contour color is up to you to choose a matte one or shimmer one.
Before you actually applied the eye shadow, do all the pre-makeup things like cleaning your eyes, applying eye foundation and concealer. Then you can start with drawing the upper and lower eye line. Match the color of eye line with your whole color tone but with a softer one. Remember to smudge the eye line.
