In terms of eye makeup, is there anything sexier and more sophisticated than the classic Smoky Eye Look?
There sure isn't! That's why almost every page of today's magazines has a picture of a beautiful model or a celebrity sporting (what else?) - the smoky eye look!
If you are looking to create a natural smokey eye like the one Angelina Jolie had in Tourist movie :
For a classic smokey eye simply follow the 7 easy steps below and before you know it, you'll be rocking the gorgeous Smoky Eye Look yourself!
Step 1 - Getting Your Eyes Ready
Begin by applying a light shade of concealer to the under eye area, and all over the top lid. Your mineral makeup foundation is a great concealer for this step and prepares your Eyes for the eyeshadow that you are going to apply.
Step 2 - Using the Liner
First, line both the top and bottom rims with an eye pencil, paying close attention to going into the lash line itself.
If you have small eyes apply liner starting from the middle of the under eye to the outside of the eye. If your eyes are large feel free to line from corner to corner.
Hint: If you are using liquid liner you can place dots on the lash line and then follow the dots to get a perfectly straight line. I knew those connect the dot puzzles I did as a kid would come in handy some day!
Step 3 - Adding the Shadow
With a small eye shadow brush or a q-tip, soften the edges of the eye pencil line.
Apply a dark shadow using a sponge-tip applicator, smudge brush or a q-tip directly over the penciled area and smudge. (If you prefer, you can use your finger tip.)
The shadow helps to set and soften the look.
