Answer #1

Hi! Here’s how to get that smokey look.

  1. Prep the lid. The key to keeping eyeshadow from melting into your eyelid crease as the day goes on is to kept eyelids oil-free. To do this start with an eyeshadow base (also called “primer”).

  2. Apply eyeliner. If you’re going for a typical black, brown or gray smoky eye, apply liner in one of those colors above the upper lash line, drawing line thicker in the middle of eye.

  3. Blend in color on bottom lashes For color on the bottom (a key smoky eye look) you’ll want a lighter eyeliner. The key is to “smudge it.

  4. Apply light base color Again, the key to a smoky eye is pairing a lighter base with the darker hue.

  5. Blend in darker color, but keep dark color below the crease. Now that you have the base and eyeliner on, it’s time to get the smoky effect. You need a darker eyeshadow shade.
