How do I apply smoky eye makeup?

Answer

To achieve red carpet-ready smoky eyes, use a multi-tonal eye shadow palette. Apply the shadow in a way that illuminates the eyes and use a liberal dose of mascara. Follow these steps for smoky, seductive eyes.

First, choose an eye shadow palette. Shades of gray are a popular choice, but brown palettes are also effective. Apply foundation to the lid to form an eye shadow primer, then take an eye shadow brush, dampen it slightly and dip it into the darkest shade of shadow. Use the brush to draw a line along the upper lash line and the lower lash line.

Next, take the medium shade and fill in the space between the lash line and the eyelid crease. This helps to contour the eye. Then take the lightest color on the palette and fill in the space between the crease and the brow bone. Also use this light shade around the corners of the eyes and beneath the lower lashes. This helps to make the eyes appear larger and minimize dark circles.

Once this is finished, return to the darkest eye shadow shade. Draw another line along the lashes, and smudge with a cotton swab or a finger. For the finishing touch, curl the lashes and apply dark, volumizing mascara.
