- Green eyes look particularly good with a gray and plum
- Blue eyes pop with gold or copper
- Brown eyes go great with shades of navy and gray
You should choose three shades of each color: a light, creamy color, a medium base color, and a dark smoky color.
You will first want to use a concealer and eyeshadow primer to prep your lids before applying the smoky eye. Use a concealer brush to apply both.
Using loose powders with the proper brushes, gives you the best blending ability, which is necessary for creating a great smoky eye.
Creating the smoky eye
You will now begin adding your darkest color. Start at the outside corner of your eyes, and sweep in a ‘C’ shape from the about halfway inwards (from the outside of your face) on the lash line, back up and around to about halfway inwards on the crease of your eyelid. The darkest part should always be the point at the upper edge of your lash line. Whenever you need to apply more of your dark shadow, start at this point and work inwards or upwards. Sweep a little of your dark shadow under your eye again, start at the outside corner and bring it only about halfway in. This will help to balance the darkness out on the top of your eyes.
You will then finish by blending your shadows so their are no harsh lines and apply a dark eyeliner and mascara to give it a polished look.
