Smoky Eye Make-up Tips

Have you always wanted to try the smoky eye look you see every other celeb sporting on the fashion scene? Have you failed to get the look without appearing like someone who just got hit by a truck? Given that these celebs have world renowned make-up artists traipsing around with their magic wands to give them the perfect eyes. However, you can achieve the same sultry look with little help from the experts.

Decide the colors
Choose your colors carefully as per your skin tone. Go for three shades: light shade for the overall layer, dark one for the smoky eye effect and medium shade as the base color. Be sure to avoid bright colors if you are too fair or dark. Let your smoky eyes complement and not distract attention from your face.

Perfect Supplies
If you need a perfect smoked eye, you need the right brushes. Start with applying lose powder on your eye lids and prep it with a concealer and eye-shadow primer for a smoother finish in the end. A pitch black eye liner will accentuate the contours of your eyes and add to the smoky effect. Always keep a q-tip and a fluffy brush handy to fix the mistakes while applying the make-up.

Create the Smoky Style
Start with highlighter which is the lightest of the three shades with the eyebrow brush. Now dab it on the upper and lower lids and the corner of eyelid. Sweep the medium shade across the mid eyelid and blend with the lighter shade. Now choose your darkest shade and color corner of the eyes in a C shape. Use a clean brush to blend in all the colors. Now add mascara and brush off excess color to complete the look.
