Now the idea is to be able have smoky eyes, yet not look so much
like you forgot to take your eye makeup off last night. Even though,
that has been known as a turn on for a quite lot of men makes them
wonder what you been up. To start creating the look you must have a
base for it. This helps to keep the color in one place. Smooth on a
eyeshadow primer, some say foundation is good to use as long as its
color doesn't take away from what you are trying to achieve. Now pat on
loose powder setting the base. The real secret to the smoky look is in
the color eyeshadow you use.
Tips: If your eyes are blue and you're blond, then go for greens
instead, the darker the better. If your eyes are green then go for
blues again the darkest shades of blues you like. If your eyes are
brown then you are just plain lucky with your choices of colors. Brown
eyed ladies can try any colors you like. Now purple eyeshadow is a
color that everyone can try. Just try it in Plum, Berry and others like
Rim your eyes with a black or grey pencil drawing a line along both
upper and lower lash line. Starting from inner corner of your eyes
going outward starting a fine line going into a heavier line as you
draw outwards the outer corner.
If black or grey seems too harsh for the look you're going for, then try either dark brown, plum or taupe instead.
Apply a medium - grey eyeshadow all over your lids, stopping at the
crease. Apply your dark eyeshadow into the crease, then take a angled
brush and apply the dark eyeshadow onto the eyeliner and then smudge it
well with a cotton swab keeping as much of the color at the outer
corner of your eyes. The angled brush is great for getting eyeshadow up
under your lashes on the bottom which in turn helps keep your eyeliner
in place. It's the smudging that has got to be done carefully. The idea
is to blend the eyeshadow and eyeliner together. If you wanted a more
"feline" aka cat eyes then using a liquid eyeliner would be best.
Helping to contrast the darkness of your eyeshadow, sweep a
pearlized ivory eyeshadow over your brow bones for a wide-eyed look. By
applying a little at a time, you are building up the effort gradually
till you like what you see. Finishing off the look with one coat of
black mascara, one coat of Magic Lash if you want super long,lush
lashes to go along with this look, then one more coat of black mascara.
Dark colors trend to make small eyes look even smaller, you can open
them up by lining the rims from the inner to the center with a
light-colored pencil, rather than dark pencil, pat on pale eyeshadow on
the center of each lid. That should cause the small eyes to seem bigger.
For the rest of this ideal look. Finish off by using a tawny blusher
or a bronzing powder. Its natural color won't complete with the rest of
your makeup. Sweep it over your cheekbone, blending away to the edges
into your hairline. Keeping your lips neutral gives this look its real
impact. Go for a pinkish - beige shade of lip pencil and smudge it over
your entire mouth for a matte, I justed been kissed yet very
understated effect. Now your eyes are ready for whatever you might have
planned. This look can be toned down for work but who would want to?
