Smokey Eyes in Six Steps!

Going away for Spring break and need a change in your usual makeup routine? Here is a detailed and simple way to achieve the perfect smokey eye for a night out.

Step 1: Put white in the inner most 1/3 of your eyelid.

Step 2: Use a medium gray on the rest of your eyelid.

Step 3: Use a black (or dark gray) in the crease of your eye. Make a V with the black along your upper lash line.

Step 4: Use the white again on your brow bone. Then use the same brush to blend all colors on your lid. Don’t be shy about blending it; this step is what neatens the colors on the lid.

Step 5: Use the black (or medium gray) on your bottom lash line. Smudge it with your finger.

Step 6: Apply eyeliner along upper lash line. How thick or thin is your preference. A cute addition is a winged-eyeliner. Smudge the eyeliner with a smudger (attached to the other end of a pencil eyeliner) or Q-tip.

Step 7: Finish with a layer of black mascara.
