This sexy look has been in vogue for a while and has no signs of slowing down.
With Luxola’s seven easy steps, your peekers are going to look perfect.
Step 1: Selecting the right colour
The most important step is choosing an eye shadow colour that complements your skin tone, eye colour, and facial features. Your choice of colour will influence the entire look. Choose shimmery gold or bronze to add that oomph while combining it with greys and blacks. You can even try shades of blues, browns, or even plum to add that extra drama. Once you have a colour decided, pick an eye shadow case that has at least three shades of the same colour. This adds depth and drama to the smoky eye.
Step 2: Prep and Highlight
Start by patting a gentle foundation or an eye shadow primer on the lids.
Pick the lightest colour as a highlighter just below the brow. Apply the same colour on the eyelids in the area closest to the nose bridge.
Step 3: Shading is key
Apply the darkest shade on the eye creases and blended outwards on the brow bone. This will make your eyes appear rounder. Line your eyes using a Dark Kohl on the upper and lower lash line. Soften the liner by using a soft eyes shadow brush. You could even do this with a Q-tip at home.
Step 4: Secret is in blending
Apply a black eye shadow on the softened liner along the lash line. Stop at the halfway mark of your eyelids, the colour being darkest closer to the lash line and blend upwards towards the crease.
Step 5: Eyeliner magic
The next step is to apply eyeliner evenly. If you are using liquid eyeliner, make sure that the line is steady and even. If you decide to go with dark kohl, then blend it gently with a soft blending brush.
Step 6: Seal it
Apply two coats of mascara to seal the ends of your upper and lower lashes.
Step 7: Clean up
Never forget to clean once you have applied the eye shadow. The last thing you want is the attention diverted to the specks of colour on your cheeks from your eyes.
