The Best Way to Create a Smokey Eyeshadow Look

When it comes to makeup, a classic smokey eyeshadow look is a timeless trend that will never go out of style. It’s a great way to add dimension and drama to your look, and it can be adapted to any occasion.

Whether you’re headed to a special event or just want to add some drama to your everyday look, the smokey eyeshadow look is an excellent choice.

If you’re new to makeup, the thought of achieving a perfect smoky eye can be daunting. But don’t worry – with the right makeup tools and eyeshadow colours, it’s not as difficult as it may seem.

Here’s how to apply smokey eyeshadow and achieve a stunning look.

First, start with a good eyeshadow primer base.

This will help the eyeshadow adhere to the skin and last longer. When it comes to the actual eyeshadow, you’ll want to pick a few shades that are similar in tone – usually a mix of dark and light colours. This will give you the depth and dimension you’re looking for. 

Apply a light eyeshadow colour 

The next step is to apply a light eyeshadow colour over the entire eyelid, up to the browbone. This will create a subtle base for your smoky eye look.

Using an eyeshadow brush, start by applying the lightest eyeshadow shade all over the lid. Work your way up to the crease, blending the colour as you go.

Build upon the base eyeshadow colour 

Next, apply a medium shade of eyeshadow to the crease of your eye, blending it up and out for a subtle contour. For the most dramatic look, use a flat eyeshadow brush to apply a dark eyeshadow to the outer corner of the eye, blending it inwards and up towards the crease of the eye.

Blend the colours in the creases

Once you’ve reached the crease, use a darker colour to add some drama and definition. To finish off the look, use the lightest shade to highlight the browbone and inner corner of the eye. Make sure to blend all the colours together to create a seamless look.

Keep eyeshadow look lasting longer

You can also use eyeshadow primer to help keep the look in place throughout the day. And to really make the look pop, you can add some false lashes and a bit of eyeliner for an extra dramatic effect.

For a more dramatic smokey eyeshadow look 

To add depth, use a black eyeliner to line the upper lash line, extending it slightly at the corner of the eye. You can also line the lower lash line, smudging it with a brush for a softer effect.

Finish the look with a few coats of mascara, and you’re done! With these simple steps, you can create a smoky eye look that’s perfect for any occasion.
