How to do a smokey eye
Doing a smokey eye actually takes a lot of practice. I remember when I first did one I thought it was the hardest thing to do, but over time I perfected it. Now that’s the only thing I do! You can make them as natural or dramatic as you want. I love blending all types of colors together because you can get a completely different color, and look. Even if you copy the exact colors someone else uses, it isn’t going to be an exact replica! Everyone has their own techniques, and it depends on how much you blend your colors together.
Always start using an eyeshadow primer or base
If you are looking to save money, then I recommend using a concealer as a primer by applying it with your beauty blender. This will cover your dark shadows on your eyes. However, I completely recommend using an eyeshadow primer like the Urban Decay Eyeshadow Potion so your concealer or eyeshadow doesn’t crease throughout the day. It makes a huge difference.
Apply a light shadow
This will help the colors stay in place longer and allow you to have an even and buildable blend. I always use a white or translucent powder and this will make a huge difference when blending. Always start with a little product at a time, and blending often and you will create the perfect smokey eye!
