Smoky eye looks don’t have to be difficult. If you have patience and are willing to blend, you can do it! You don’t have to be a professional makeup artist to create it, I’m definitely not. It also doesn’t have to be black, it can literally be any colour you want it to be.
What I would normally use to create a simple smoky eye is:
A cream shadow
A powder eyeshadow in the same or a similar colour.
An eyeliner (something waterproof).
A brush to pack colour on and a couple of blending brushes to..blend 🙂
A warm shadow (or a bronzer even) for the crease.
I use a taupe shade in the crease too, but that’s optional
A highlight shade for the brow bone and inner corner.
Mascara and or lashes.
There will probably be alot of fallout when you pack dark colours onto the lid, so I suggest doing your foundation or at least your concealer after you finish the eyes.
I did throw on a bit of foundation, did my brows, primed my lids and set them with powder beforehand.
I first grabbed one on the Maybelline Color Tattos in ‘Timeless Black’. I forgot how much I love these!
I applied a good amount of this all over my lid with a synthetic brush.
When the colour was opaque on the lid, I cleaned off the brush and blended out the edges.
Having the primer and powder underneath makes it easier to do this step.
