This is definitely a much loved red carpet look. If you want to go for gorgeous dark lips and plan to match your eyes exactly, then this is just the look for you. This bold and beautiful look can be tried during a daytime event as well.

Start with using a primer on the lids, and add a nude eye shadow on top to help in blending well. In the crease, blend a very cool toned light brown shadow. Intensify the outer crease with a cool toned brown eye shadow. Darken the outer crease more using a very warm medium dark brown shadow. Create more depth to the inner part of the eye with the same shade and blend in well. Leave the middle of the lid bare. Continue intensifying the inner and outer crease till you are satisfied with the darkness. Add a cool brown pressed pigment to the middle of the lid. Smoke out the lower lash line. Apply false lashes, inner highlight and liquid liner and kajal to your waterline. Your mulberry smokey eye is done.smokey eye makeup 52


3. The black and gold smokey eye look

This dramatic eye makeup looks extremely good for weddings and big events. To achieve this glam gold and black smokey look, apply a good amount of black liner in the outer corner and also towards the crease. But do this after you have cleansed the base and applied some primer. With an eye shadow brush soften it out. This will create depth in the smokey eye look. Apply some black liner to the lower lash line and smudge properly. Once the black has been blended in properly, apply some gold eye shadow. Blend the gold with the black near the outer corner of the eyes. Apply gold eye shadow to the inner corner and slightly at the beginning of the lower lash line. Again blend it with the black to create an ombre effect. To create a flick, apply eyeliner. Wear false lashes and apply mascara.smokey eye makeup 53
