Here are some pointers that will help you get through a smokey eye makeup successfully –

  • When doing a smokey eye, always remember to do the eye makeup first and then the base and foundation. If you do it the other way round, you’ll be wasting a lot of product and precious time in cleaning the under eye area and redoing the whole base and concealer!
  • Smokey eye doesn’t always have to be black – yes, the base is black but different colors can be worn over it. Like a green, purple, copper, bronze, gold etc.
  • If you are a beginner at doing the smokey eye, I’d suggest that you use a black kajal pencil as the base as it will be easy to blend. Alternately, you could also use a gel eyeliner in place of the pencil and smudge. The basic idea here is to use something that is extremely creamy and blendable.
  • The key to a beautiful smokey eye is BLENDING! Invest in a good blending brush and blend all the lines away!
  • Never team up your smokey eyes with a red lip or a dark/bright lipstick unless you are taking part in a photo shoot or you are walking the ramp for a fashion show! Smokey eye makeup looks best when paired with a nude beige or pink lipstick. 
  • False lashes are a great way to make the eyes look more ‘open’. If you find it hard putting them on, simply choose a mascara that says ‘volumizing’ and apply 2-3 coats of it! It’ll give you a similar false lash effect.

Remember that a smokey eye doesn’t have to look perfect. It can look messy too but don’t forget – a blended messy 🙂
