How To Get The Best Smokey Eye Ever!

Whether you are out on date, heading out with the girls or simply want to make you feel like the glamorous vixen that you are inside, a smokey eye is hard to beat. The only trouble with a smokey eye is that it isn’t always the easiest of things to do.

Even worse, if you get a smokey eye wrong then it can end up looking pretty hideous and there isn’t much that you can do but wipe it off and start again. There is some good news for those who want to achieve the perfect smokey eye, we can help you to master the art. 

We have put together some of our top tips on how to get the very best smokey eye ever. 

Don’t use too many colours

We know that the classic approach to a smokey eye is to use simple shades, but we have seen lots of takes on this style. No matter what colours you are using for your smokey eye creation, it is a good idea to keep it as simple as possible. Don’t use too many colours as this will confuse the overall look, not to mention making it harder too. 

Highlight first

One of the biggest mistakes that people make with creating a smokey eye is that they start with the darker shades first. It is important that you highlight first. The highlight colour needs to be light, and it needs to be blended right up to the brow bone. This will give you the perfect gradient for your overall look. 

Darken your lash line

If you are highlighting by the brow bone, then it makes sense that you will be moving down to the lash line for the darkest colours. Darker shades at the lash line is the freshest way to make a smokey eye look. Not only this, but when you do this you are making sure that you are bringing more attention to your eye itself, rather than focusing on the makeup. 

Blending is always your friend

Blending is an important part of creating a smokey eye look. So, this means that you need to ensure that you have the right tools to finish it. Investing in the best blending brushes is going to do you well and the good news is that it doesn’t matter which colours you use, or how dark you go with those colours, if you have made sure that you have blended properly, then you don’t need to worry about how it is going to turn out. 

Think sultry

When you create a smokey eye, the main thing that you should always have in mind is that you are hoping for a sultry look. Whilst you don’t want it to be so light that no-one will notice, smoky eyes are usually more subtle than you realise. It is a good idea to build up colour, rather than going in full whack to start with. You can always add when you need to, but you cannot take away as easily. 

Creating a smokey eye is a great makeup look. It will make you feel sexy, sultry and gorgeous. Exactly the look that you are hoping to achieve.
