Finally, we are in December and this year is almost saying goodbye to us all. This means, while the holiday season is on and you would be invited to many parties, there would be many getting their eye makeup done on the smokey lines. Don’t be boring, is what we would say! Smokey is sexy, but you can make it sexier and here are five amazing looks to share with you. Grab hold of the right tools and cosmetics, and read on to practice these five looks from now on!
Now this is a look that would steal the show, because that is exactly what steel smokey eyes do. To make this look come as glorious and elegant, you need to focus on a matte shade of steel to wash the eye lids with. The next step would be to contour the eyes with a dark shade of black on the outer corner of the eyes. Smudge the contouring inwards and then place a dark kohl line in any shape you desire, extending to the outer corner of the eyes. Between the crease and the brow bone, place a plum shade in matte tones and smoke up the area. The brow area should be highlighted with light peach. Heavy mascara is a must!
2. Dramatic subtle gold-browns:
Add a little drama to the eyes with a subtle touch of golds and browns. To achieve this look, you would need to first do an eye wash using a neutral toned brown shadow on the lids. The next step would be to add light gold pigment from the inner corner to the mid section of the eyes. From the mid section to the outer section, use shimmery dark brown and smudge. Contour the eyes with a dark shade of black on the outer corner of the eyes. Smudge the contouring inwards and then place a dark kohl line in any shape you desire, extending to the outer corner of the eyes. False eyelashes and dark mascara completes the look!
For the love of all things winged, not just the liner, we shall have winged smoked up eyes to flaunt at the new year bash. To achieve this look, you get to choose a metallic eye shadow color of your likings. Smear the pigment well onto the lids and then contour the outer portion of both eyelids with dark black shimmer eye shadow. Smudge the shadow inwards, all the way above the crease line and create a wing on the outer corner of the eyes. Once that is done, complete the look with a touch of shimmer on the socket and wear dark kohl liner with false lashes.
4. Shimmery pink smoked up eyes:
Pink can be a good choice to add more glam to the smoked up look on the eyes, only if you know how to wear shimmer the right way. To achieve this look, we would first wash the eyes with neutral brown matte eye shadow, and then smear shimmery pink eye shadow all over the lids, but not the brow bone. The brow bone would have a touch of light peach or shiny pink for compliment sake. The outer corner of the eyes should be decked with dark pink matte tones and smudged inwards for a smokey glossy touch to come through. Complete the look with half lined eye lashes and optionally, false lashes and mascara.
5. Starry smokey eyes:
For the princess-y touch, smokey eyes should have a starry entourage following the look. This look can be achieved in less than ten minutes. You start with a neutral brown matte shadow eye wash for each lids. Contour the eyes with a dark shade of black on the outer corner of the eyes. Smudge the contouring inwards and then place a dark kohl line in any shape you desire, extending to the outer corner of the eyes. With the tip of your pinky finger, add a touch of shimmery white powder on the mid section of the eyes and smudge inside. Kohl line the lids and wear heavy mascara to complete the look.
