TIP FROM A MAKEUP PROFESSIONAL:
Want Sexy, Smoky Eyes? Here’s How!
The first step to sexy smoky eyes is, of course, eyeliner! You can use either a pencil or a liquid. I suggest drawing a thin line in either a black or dark brown color….following along the top eyelash line (OR you can apply eyeliner from the top inner corner to top outer corner of the eyes), whichever you like best. Then add a bit of eyeliner underneath the eye in the outside corner. Note: Avoid ringing the eye with eyeliner, as this can make the eyes appear smaller.
IMPORTANT MAKEUP COLOR PRINCIPLE: Lighter colors create fullness and highlight an area, while darker colors create depth and definition.
Let’s continue creating those smoky eyes with eye shadows next! Try using a medium-toned shadow on the lid, then a dark-toned eye shadow color on the outer corners of the eyelid, in the eyelid crease under the browbone, and in the corners underneath the eye (eyeshadow applied over your eyeliner); see the illustration below. A lighter shadow can be applied softly directly underneath the eyebrow as a highlighter.
Here is an illustration of where to apply a medium-toned eye shadow (Silverado) and two darker-toned eye shadows (Navajo Brown & Slate blended together) in the corner and eyelid crease under the browbone. The three QDazzle(TM) eye shadow tones used here are “Silverado” Frosty Eye Shadow, “Navajo Brown” and “Slate” Matte Eye Shadows.
Of course, curling your eyelashes will help show off your eyes too! Next apply your eyelash conditioner, let dry, then apply your mascara. You can use several coats of mascara (letting each coat dry thoroughly before applying the next coat helps avoid clumping). For extra drama, as a final touch try a fun pair of sexy false eyelashes!
