Using black or gray eyeshadow to achieve smokey eyes is now passe. The latest is to use many shades of the same colour. A minimum of three shades in light, medium and dark tones at least, and if you want extra effect, you can blend as many as five.
And here’s a simple 4-step approach to achieve your own smokey eyes with a trio of colours.
- Apply the lightest colour as base to the entire eye area, from eyebrow to lashline.
- Using an eyeshadow brush that fits comfortably into the crease of your eye socket, blend the medium colour over the outer half of your eyelid.
- Dampen the tip of a narrow brush, dip it in the darkest colour and dot along the upper lash line, three quarters of the way in, then smudge it down into the lashes.
- Curl your eyelashes, then add mascara.
