Simple Smokey Eye

One of my favorite eye looks to wear is a smokey eye! I think they look great on everyone, the key is to find colors that work for you. Smokey eyes can be done many different ways but when I don’t have a lot of time I like to do a smokey eye with only one eyeshadow. It’s also easier to only use one eyeshadow when you’re just learning how to do a smokey eye instead of using several different colors.

*I like to apply my eyeshadow before my foundation whenever I do a smokey eye.

Things needed:

-two eyeshadow brushes. A regular sized one and a big fluffy one


-A dark eyeshadow or whatever color you want your smokey eye to be.

-A matte eyeshadow that matches your skin tone.

-Black eyeliner


First apply eyeshadow base, this will keep your eyeshadow from creasing and fading throughout the day.  I like to use NYX pearl eyeshadow base, especially when I’m using a metallic eyeshadow because it keeps its metallic finish.


Then take your eyeshadow and apply it all over your lid and bring it up to your crease, also apply some along your lower lash line. Don’t worry about blending it yet.


Next take your big fluffy brush and your matte nude shadow and use it to blend out harsh edges along your crease and lower lash line then line your eyes. Just keep blending till everything is nice and smooth you can always go back and add more eyeshadow if you blended away too much.


Clean up any fall out and finish with mascara. Apply your foundation as usual and there you have it! (:
