A smokey eye is probably one of the most popular and coveted makeup looks…ever! Here’s all you need to know about smokey eyes and the easiest ways to achieve them. There are so many possible variations of the smokey eye, but we will focus on three of the most popular ones.

 

Smokey eyes can be done with different products, textures, and techniques. By trying these different methods, you will find the smokey eye that suits you best.

 

The Effortlessly Beautiful Smokey Eye

 

 

This is probably the easiest and fastest of them all. All you need for this look is a cream eyeshadow of your choice and mascara!

 

 

Apply the eyeshadow on the center of the lid and blend it outward by following the natural shape of your eye and finish the look with a few coats of mascara.

The Glamorous Smokey Eye

 

 

Apply a medium to dark cream eyeshadow on the center of the lid and blend it outward by following the natural shape of your eye.

Define the crease, the lower and upper lash line with a dark eyeshadow while making sure there are no harsh edges. Lastly, add a few coats of mascara.

The Audacious Smokey Eye 

 

 

Apply and blend a medium to dark cream eyeshadow all over the lid and define the crease and the lower lash line with a dark eyeshadow.

 

 

Line your eyes with a black eyeliner and smudge the line to create a bold smokey effect. You can also line the inner rims of your eyes for an intensified look.

Finally, add a few coats of your blackest mascara.
