The classic smokey eye never goes out of style and suits everyone. With a black eyeliner pencil, color your eyelid leaving a gap at the center, as seen in the image. I've picked up a smaller, round eyeshadow brush for this shade, because I don't want this color in as much area as the previous colors. Follow this up with a lighter color and apply it all over the eyelid, ending right beneath the crease.
Avoid shades that overpower your natural spark and limit the darker shadows to the crease, to amplify the look. Really focus this darker color in your crease so you aren't going too high up toward the brow bone or too far down your lid. To create a sexy, smoldering effect, look no further than deep cobalt blue, especially for brown eyes.
Line your upper and lower waterline with a black eyeliner pencil. Curl your lashes and apply two coats of mascara to complete the look. To highlight the inner corners of your eyes, use a shimmery cream eyeshadow. You could also try a dark blue or purple eyeliner, or if wearing blue or purple eye shadow already, try a bronze or gold metallic eyeliner.
You don't have to be a makeup pro or a beauty guru to achieve big, bold and gorgeous eyes. Use a pale lilac color and run the brush all along the crease of the eyes, taking care to blend the edge of gold into the soft lilac color. Almond brown and cream colors are always a good natural looking smoky eye look for green eyes.
Using a deep brown or a black eyeliner pencil, tightline your upper waterline, so your lashes look fuller. Prime your eyes and apply the grey eyeshadow all over your upper eyelid and lower lashline with a flat brush. Step 4: Apply a metallic gold eyeshadow all over your mobile lid (Amber from ABH).
Line your upper lashline while holding the pencil as close to the lashline as possible. When you're doing a smokey eye, make sure you use a concealer for your under eye circles to avoid raccoon-eyes. For even more color dimension, lightly dust an orange eyeshadow to the inner corner of your lower lash line and olive green to the top lash line.
For a smudgy look, draw a thick line across the top of your lash line, and then use your fingertip or a small eyeshadow brush to smudge and blur the line. Apply your favorite dark shade to the inner rim of your how to do makeup like a pro eyes, followed by the outside upper lash lines too.
Whatever liner and lashes you prefer actually, but I prefer a black gel liner from Beauty Bakerie as my go-to gel liner. Use your black liquid liner to create a wing along your lashline. Take full advantage of the shade of brown you posses and experiment with color in order to find out which types of makeup look best on you.
Using a neutral palette, pick the eyeshadow color closest to your skin tone and apply it on your eyelids. Apply concealer under your eyes and on any dark or red spots, and then apply a powder foundation over the top to set it. Apply the color straight into the crease of the eyes, working back and forth.
Next, pick the lightest shade and apply it on the inner corner of your eyes and below your eyebrows' arch (on top of the highlighter you applied earlier). Step 2: Define your eyebrows with your favorite brow product (Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade in Ebony), and then prep your lids for the eye makeup applying an eyeshadow primer.
Finally, line the lower and upper lash lines with black eyeliner and finish off with black mascara. With the soft peach shadow, define your crease using a blending brush. Next, use a fluff brush to blend the carbon black shadow upwards and along the outer edge of the eyelid.
Apply the deep brown eyeshadow towards the outer corner of your eye and in the crease area. Now cover the gold shadow with a burgundy eye shadow going up above the crease and into the corner of the eye, creating a subtle cat-eye shape. Take a black kajal eye pencil and trace a thick line all along the upper lash line.
