Step By Step: The Smokey Eye

Top Tip!  For a smoky eye look, always start with the eyes first before foundation so  any excess dark shadow  can easily be wiped away without ruining the perfected skin base. 

1) Apply a base colour with a blending brush all over the lid area, blend it into the crease and just above the socket line.

2) Next use your darkest colour using a pencil brush for precise application to the outer corner of the lid and into the crease of the eye socket to create depth. Using the same brush take the dark colour under the lower lash line to really define the eye. Blend this out using a fluffy blending brush. 

3) Use a dark kohl pencil to line the waterline (lower inside rim) of the eye. This will really complete your smoky eye look and make the eyes pop!
