Follow our Step-by-Step Guide to Achieving the Perfect Look
The smokey eye look is a timeless classic that never goes out of style. It’s sultry, sexy, and can be worn by anyone, regardless of age or skin tone. But creating the perfect smokey eye can be intimidating, especially for beginners. That’s why we’ve put together this step-by-step guide to help you achieve the ultimate smokey eye.
Prep Your Eyes
Before you start creating your smokey eye, it’s important to prep your eyes. This includes priming your lids with PYT Beauty Baby Got Base Eye Primer to ensure your eyeshadow stays in place all day. Apply a small amount of primer to your eyelids and blend it out using your finger.
Apply Base Color
Next, apply a base color to your eyelids. This color should be a neutral shade, such as a light brown or taupe, and will act as a base for your smokey eye – 100% Pure’s Fruit Pigmented® Eye Shadow can be a great option. Apply the base color all over your lid, up to your brow bone.
To create depth in your smokey eye, you’ll need to use a darker shade. Choose a color that’s a few shades darker than your base color and apply it to the outer corner of your eyelid, blending it towards the center of your lid. Use Ilia Blending Brush to blend the color out, making sure there are no harsh lines.
To add definition to your smokey eye, use a small brush to apply a darker shade to your crease. This will help create depth and add definition to your eye. Use a blending brush to blend the color out, making sure there are no harsh lines.
Smoke It Out
To create the ultimate smokey eye, you’ll need to smoke it out. Use a small brush to apply a black or dark grey eyeshadow to the outer corner of your eye, blending it towards the center of your lid. Use a blending brush to blend the color out, making sure there are no harsh lines. You can also use a pencil brush to smudge the color along your lower lash line.
To make your smokey eye pop, add a shimmer shade to the center of your eyelid. This will help catch the light and add dimension to your eye. Use a flat brush to apply the shimmer shade, making sure it’s concentrated on the center of your eyelid.
Line Your Eyes
To finish off your smokey eye, line your eyes with a 100% Pure’s Creamy Long Last Liner. Use a pencil liner to line your upper and lower lash lines, making sure the line is smudged and not too harsh.
The final step is to apply mascara to your lashes. Use a volumizing mascara to add volume and length to your lashes. Apply two to three coats, making sure to wiggle the brush from the base of your lashes to the tips.
Creating the perfect smokey eye may take some practice, but with these steps, you’ll be well on your way to achieving a sultry, sexy look. Remember to blend, blend, blend, and don’t be afraid to experiment with different colors and techniques. With a little patience and practice, you’ll soon be a smokey eye pro!
