Set the Face with a powder so your makeup doesn’t fade and your eye makeup stays in place.
Bring Back some color, once skin tone is evened out with bronzer and a light color blush. Apply darker tone directly under the cheekbone and blend upwards with a lighter color blush.
The key to a perfect eye makeup or smoky eye is proper blending. You want to make sure colors are blended together flawlessly. It is also important to match your light base color with rich dark colors.
Eye Shadow. Our model is using a champagne base with a maroon color on the crease and a dark brown/black accent in the outer corner of the eyes.
Comb and refine your eyebrows, make them look clean and well shaped, as they are the frame of your face. You may want to go to a professional to do this. If you need to, you can fill them up with powder or pencil, match the color to you hair or a bit darker.
Apply Eyeliner. If you are going for a typical black, brown or gray look, apply liner in one of those colors above the upper lash line. Blend with an angular brush or a sponge applicator into the lash line so there is no space in between the line and the lashes.
For color on the bottom lashes, you’ll want lighter eyeliner. The key is to “smudge it.” You can apply a bit of shadow to get a full smudge effect.
Double Check your work. Make sure your eyes match and blend colors with a cotton swab if necessary.
