Stick to the classic color choices to attract more attention on your eyes
To create the smokey eyes, you can use any color that you want. But if you go with other colors besides black or gray, you have to make sure that the colors of your choice go well with both your skin tone and the color of your eyes. Therefore, it’s better to stick to the classic color choices to ensure that the smokey eyes you create go well with your appearance. The classic color choices that we’re talking about are black or gray, of course. Choose three shades of black or three shades of gray. This way, no matter if you’re fair skinned or if you have a dark skin tone, and no matter the color of your eyes, you will look stunning with the smokey eyes that you create.
Clean the eyeshadow brush and use it to bled the shadows together
After you apply the three shadows of black or gray that you have chosen, you have to blend them together to create a harmonious look. Clean the eyeshadow brush using water and face soap. Dry it with a clean cloth. Afterward, use the eyeshadow brush to gently blend in the colors from the lightest to the darkest tone.
Don’t forget to add mascara and eyeliner
Of course, you can’t create the perfect smokey eyes without the help of mascara and eyeliner. Apply a medium to thick layer of black mascara on your eyelashes. When it comes to the eyeliner, you can either use it to create a cat-eye look, or you can stay inside the lines of your eyes. If you’re going to a special occasion, we recommend that you create the cat-eye look with the eyeliner because it attracts more attention.
Brush away excess color to create a pleasant look
Last but not least, you must brush away the excess color to create a pleasant smokey eyes effect. Use a makeup brush to brush off any mascara or eyeshadow that falls below your eyes. Afterward, using the eyeshadow brush, blend in the colors of the smokey eyes better if it’s needed.
