Hey everyone! Welcome back to my channel. Today, I’m going to show you how to achieve the perfect smokey eye look. Whether you’re getting ready for a night out on the town or just want to add some drama to your everyday makeup routine, the smokey eye is a classic look that never goes out of style.

First things first, make sure you have all the right tools and products on hand. You’ll need an eyeshadow palette with shades in the black, grey, and silver family, as well as a good quality eyeshadow primer, eyeliner, and mascara. I also recommend having some makeup wipes or micellar water nearby for any mistakes you might make along the way.

Start by applying your eyeshadow primer all over your eyelids to ensure that your eyeshadow stays in place and looks vibrant. Next, take a fluffy eyeshadow brush and dip it into a light grey shade from your palette. Sweep this shade across your entire eyelid, from the lash line to the crease, as a base color.

Now, it’s time to add some depth to the look. Take a small eyeshadow brush and dip it into a black eyeshadow. Tap off any excess product to avoid fallout, then gently pat the black eyeshadow onto the outer corner of your eye, blending it into the crease. This will create a gradient effect that adds dimension to your eyes.

To intensify the smokey effect, take a slightly larger eyeshadow brush and dip it into a darker grey shade. Blend this shade into the crease and outer corner of your eye, focusing on creating a seamless transition between the black and grey colors. Remember to blend, blend, blend to avoid any harsh lines.

Next, it’s time to add some shimmer and sparkle to the look. Take a flat eyeshadow brush and dip it into a silver eyeshadow. Gently pat the silver eyeshadow onto the center of your eyelid, blending it into the darker shades on either side. This will add a pop of brightness to your smokey eye and make your eyes really stand out.

Now, it’s time to line your eyes. Using a black eyeliner pencil, carefully line your upper lash line, making sure to get as close to the lashes as possible. You can choose to create a winged eyeliner look for added drama, or simply keep it close to the lash line for a more subtle effect.

For an extra touch of glamour, apply a few coats of black mascara to your upper and lower lashes. This will help define your eyes and tie the whole look together. If you want to amp up the drama even more, consider adding a pair of false lashes for a truly show-stopping finish.

And there you have it – the perfect smokey eye look! With a little practice and the right techniques, you can easily recreate this iconic makeup look at home. Whether you’re heading to a special event or just want to feel a little more glam, the smokey eye is a versatile look that never fails to impress.
