Smoky Eyes

Posted on: March 25, 2009

A few of my young customers have been asking me about drawing smoky kira_naytli1eyes. If you were to do this, please ensure that you have created a flawless base especially concealer under the eyes so that you would look polished. For beginners, use a light colour such as copper or bronze before you use deeper colours like black or dark navy. Usually smoky eyes are meant for evenings functions, however more youngsters are wearing it in the day as a fashion statement. It’s your choice.

– To ensure that your eye makeup stays throughout the evening, use a primer or base on the eyelids. Then put some loose powder underneathe the eyes so as to catch the excess eye shadow colours.

– Use a  liner  to trace your eyes (top and bottom), then smudge with a cotton bud.Use an eyeshadow of your choice to blend from the upper liner to your eye crease. Starting from the outer end, move inwards.

– Then depending on how much shadow you want to put at the bottom, apply some at the outer corner of the eye (1/3) then blend and move inwards to cover the whole bottom liner.

– Dust off the excess powder and shadow under the eyes. And clean the rough edges of the eye shadow with a cotton bud.

– To add some spice to your smoky eye, add some shimmer on the eye shadow but use sparingly!

– A strong brow should match the eyes.

– Your choice of lipstick is very important to complete the look! Pale Nude creates a mysterious look, dark lips and eyes gives a gothic feel. Explore and enjoy!
