Top 6 Essential Makeup Tips For Smokey Eye
In the field of eye makeup, Smokey eye has a very distinct and valuable position. It is considered as the sexiest eye makeup. However, you can customize it into a funny eye touch as well. Smokey eye makeup generally requires a lot of patience. You should also be well equipped and acquainted with the application technique. Well, if you are a beginner and want to have a beautiful smokey eye makeup, then I may be able to help you by giving the 6 essential tips regarding the same. Here we start:
I would ask you to choose the colors very wisely. Generally smoky eyes are darker in appearance. You should choose colors from the same family in different shades, you can say lighter to darker. You may even like to opt for the regular black, brown or gray look. In this case you have to choose different shades of black, brown or gray.
If you want to have fun with some colorful stunts, then you may experiment with mauve and purple colors too. However, selection of color lies upon you but I would suggest you to choose different shades of same color for a dramatic and authentic smokey look.
It is very essential that any makeup should be worn on a good base. Primer is that base for eye makeup and it should be made the mandatory for any kind of eye makeup, especially for smokey eye makeup. Primer gives a good finishing touch as it provides a smooth and even base for the blending purpose.
As we know that a good base always carries the makeup for a longer time. Similarly, if you apply primer on your eyes before moving ahead with the makeup, you will get a long lasting smokey eye makeup.
Eye Makeup First
This tip has got a very logical approach. If you put on your face makeup first and then go for the smokey eye makeup which will take much more effort and is more prone to error, then you may waste time as well as patience. Let me explain that for you. Eye makeup generally needs frequent cleaning in the nearby areas due to splash of some extra shadow, mascara or eyeliner.
So, it will be easier to clean a bare skin rather than a made up skin which will definitely save the time of redoing the face makeup. Thus, I would suggest you to start with the eyes first and then move on to face makeup.
Lots of Blending
Smokey Eye makeup is the magic of blending. As the name suggest, it is all about smoke which has got no border. It just spreads out and mixes with the atmosphere. So your colors also need to mix with each other without any specific identifiable line of separation. The only way is to blend the colors with the help of a brush or your finger. If you use finger then you need to use circular movements for better effect. Blend until the lines disappear.
Big Curly Lashes
Smokey eyes without heavy eyelashes fail to give the ultimate look. You should always wear your smokey eye makeup with large curly mascara loaded eye lashes. If you don’t have curly lashes, you need not worry.
You can use eye lash curler to give the curled effect. Apply mascara on the lower eye lashes as well but in scanty amount. If you want to have an extreme dramatic look, you can even wear false eye lashes.
Highlight The Corners
Highlighting is one of the most important tips in the case of smokey eyes. Unless you highlight the inside corners with a shimmery color, your smokey eye makeup is incomplete. Use the color on the upper as well as the lower side of your tear duct. This enhances your eyes and brightens up your look.
You can use an angled brush for the required V-shape of the highlight. You may go for silver, golden or any color of your choice.
Before I end, I would like to tell you that wear a neutral lip makeup with the smokey eye makeup as both highlighted together will give a clown look. Be Beautiful!
