Smokey Eye Makeup-Simple Tricks

Smokey Eye MakeupWhen I say smoky eye makeup, the first thing that comes to your mind is probably fancy gala or night out makeup look. However, if you follow some guidelines, smokey eye makeup can become your daily routine, something you can wear even when you go to work.

Here are some tips to achieve the perfect smokey eyes:


No matter if you are going for a modern smokey eye, easy makeup routine or you want to achieve a classic smoky eye look, this is something that you can apply on your own in no time. It’s easy to achieve with a bit of practice and suits all coloring. All you need for a perfect smokey eye makeup is a brush, at least three shades of a similar hue, mascara and eyeliner (pencil, cream, or liquid eyeliner), q-tips, makeup remover and ear picks.


No matter if you are in a hurry or you have a plenty of time to apply your makeup, you can still look flawless and fresh if you follow these rules. 

Choosing the right shades is the most important thing.

If you are looking for an evening sexy look, you can always go for black and grey, or any dark colors you like. You can also shape your eyes with dark eyeliner and achieve that chic flawless smokey look. On the other hand, if you want to look quite nice during the day, do things simple and quick. Avoid dark and heavy colors to make sure you look fresh and creamy in a natural light. However, if you use a lot of powder colors and shapes that are quite complicated, it can look little old fashioned.


If you prefer applying your makeup with your fingertips and you don’t use brushes during your makeup routine, we have bad news for you. Smokey eye makeup is all about blending which you can’t achieve without a makeup brush (domed eye shadow brush). This brush is rounded at the top and it will help you get the perfect smokey eyes by blending the colors. No matter if you go for dark chocolate or soft coral look, you will not achieve smokey eyes without the proper tool.


Applying smokey eye makeup can be messy, especially if you use dark colors.

If you end up with your eye shadow on your cheeks or below your eyes, you can always use a large makeup brush to brush it off in quick, broad strokes. If you don’t have a brush, q-tip dipped in makeup remover can fix almost anything. Ear pick is very powerful tool when you want to correct makeup around your eyes. After removing any excess color around your eyes, make sure you fix any extra makeup that may have been removed. If you want to avoid this mess try using creamy eye shadows instead of powder ones (they will not drop down).

Before you start with your smokey eye makeup, make sure you’ve already done your foundation. Finding a really good base will help you look fresh and it will keep your eye makeup in one place.
