Smokey eyes are trending all over the word in the fashion industry. Girls all around the globe prefer and love smokey eye makeup at each and every occasion. As eyes are the first thing people notice when they meet one another, smokey eye makeup must be worn perfectly and carefully as harsh and unblended lines in a smokey eye look can ruin the whole makeup look. So, one must know how to perfectly do smokey eyes. Given below are five important steps and tips that will help you to understand how to do smokey eyes perfectly and easily:
Step 1: Apply Eye Shadow Primer
Smokey eyes that are not blended properly and have lines look extremely unpleasant. Eye shadow primer helps your eye shadows to blend smoothly and properly. It also prevents your smokey eyes from smudging and makes them last whole day. To begin your eye look, gently pat primer over and under your eyelids to ensure that your eye makeup lasts longer. Without using an eye shadow primer, your smokey eye makeup will not blend easily.
Step 2: Apply Concealer and Powder
Concealer and powder are two important elements of a smokey eye. Both must be incorporated well in the whole look. Concealer is used to hide dark circles, so it must be chosen according to one’s skin tone. Powder is another basic component for smokey eyes – powder is applied over the concealer.
Step 3: Identify the Eye Shade
One of the most difficult as well as important decisions one has to make while doing smokey eyes is choosing the correct eye shadow colour. For smokey eyes, the shade must not necessarily be black as any dark shade (grey, navy, shimmery, or shiny green) can be used. Apply the shadow carefully, blend it properly and try to keep it a little light.
Step 4: Applying Fake Eye Lashes
The fourth step is to apply fake eyelashes. Fake eyelashes will give your smokey eyes a fascinating look. Fake lashes for small eyes go well with the smokey eye look. Be careful while applying fake eyelashes. You can also use an eyelash curler to give your fake eyelashes a beautiful look and can gently turn your eyelashes in any desired direction to make them look even more beautiful.
Step 5: Applying mascara and eye pencil
You can apply mascara and an eye pencil before or after putting fake eyelashes on, but applying mascara after putting eyelashes on is more advisable. Applying mascara gives your eyes a bigger and better look. White or black eye pencil can help give an extra charming look to your bottom eyelashes, making them look wide and broad.
To conclude, we can say that these five steps when accurately used will help make your smokey eyes look great and awesome.
