Colorful smokey eye
The smokey eye is like the LBD of the makeup world
It will never go out of style.
One of our favourite color options this season is the burnt orange hues, which are flattering on all skin tones.Citrus colors pair well with caramel browns and golden hues. Fuchsia is another fave, but it's a bit trickier to apply because it has a blue tint that can bring out blue undertones in fair skin. It is suggested layering the fuchsia color on top of a taupe to neutralize the blue, or on top of a gold shimmer to warm it up. A shimmer eye shadow is also much easier to blend and prettier, because it tends to be softer than a graphic matte finish.
How to get a colorful smoky eye ?
1.GETTING YOUR EYES READY
Begin by applying a light shade of concealer to the under eye area, and all over the top lid. Your mineral makeup foundation is a great concealer for this step and prepares your eyes for the eye shadow that you are going to apply.
3. ADDING THE SHADOW & THE FINAL TOUCH.
2. USING THE LINER
First,line both the top and bottom rims with an eye pencil, payingclose attention to going into the lash line itself. If you have small eyes apply liner starting from the middle of the under eye to the outside of the eye. If your eyes are large feel free to line from corner to corner.
Hint: If you are using liquid liner you can place dots on the lash line and then follow the dots to get a perfectly straight line. I knew those connect the dot puzzles I did as a kid would come in handy some day! me. I’m a great place for you to tell a story and let your users know a little more about you.
With a small eye shadow brush or a q-tip, soften the edges of the eye pencil line. Apply a dark shadow using a sponge-tip applicator, smudge brush or a q-tip directly over the penciled area and smudge.Next apply a lighter shadow in a neutral tone with a larger eye shadow brush, I like to use the wet/dry brush. Encircling the entire eye area, be sure to soften and graduate outward for that perfect blended look.
4.CURL YOUR LASHES
Creating a smokey eye isn't just all about eye shadow, it's the overall look.So, while you want to do a precise job of applying the right eye shadows in the right places, you also wanted to pay attention to your lashes.Curling your eyelashes will help open up your eyes and really make them stand out
5. APPLY MASCARA
After you curl your lashes, you'll want to apply generous coats of mascara. Waterproof mascaras hold curl better. Some waterproof mascara formulas can be a bit drying on the lashes so it's not the best idea to use a waterproof formula daily.
6. CLEANING UP THE "TERRITORY”
Brush away any shadow that has fallen below the eye with a fluffy brush and clean up areas that have smeared with a q-tip. If you have trouble getting rid of fallout from eye shadow, you can try using Scotch tape to pick up any fallout without smudging your makeup.
7. GOING SUPER-DRAMATIC
Want a more dramatic look add more Shadow and Mascara AND be sure to curl those lashes and apply
2-3 coats of black mascara!
Hint: Want your eyes to look larger? Pull your liner upward when lining your bottom lashes instead of
out from the top liner! This will make your eyes look larger and rounder!
8. FINISHING UP THE LIPS
If you want a classic smoky eye look, lightly line lips with a natural color and add some sheer color in peach, caramel, or barely there pink.
