LOTD: Smokey Eyes: Do’s and Don’t’s

Hi my lovelies! 😀 So earlier, I did the TMI Tag, so check it out! Today’s look is how to do, and not to do a classic smokey eye. I went through each step, with tips on what to do and not to do. (the eye on your left is the right way to do it, and the eye on your right is the wrong one).

Image

The base: 

Do: apply some of the black cream base to the lid, and blend it out from there.

Don’t: apply the black base all over the eyes, and then blend out.

Image

Crease Blender:

Do: apply a matte gray shade, and blend.

Don’t: apply a matte black shade, and blend.

Image

Crease Definition:

Do: apply a darker matte gray to the crease and blend.

Don’t: apply a matte black to the crease and blend.

Image

Lids:

Do: apply an off-black to the lid.

Don’t: apply more black all over the lid.

Image

Blend:

Do: blend everything out with a mix of the black and grays.

Don’t: blend everything out with black.

Image

Lower Lash Line:

Do: apply the grays across the lower lash line, and a little black on the outer part, then blend.

Don’t: apply black thickly on the lower lash line, then blend.

Image

Brows:

Do: apply a warm brown to the brows.

Don’t: apply black to the brows.

Image

Waterline:

Do: apply black or dark gray to the waterline

Don’t: apply white to the waterline.

You can even add a pop of color in the waterline if you want to.

I was really happy on how this look turned out. If you want this to be more of a super quick smokey eye, all you have to do is take NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Black Bean, draw some on your lid, and easily blend up a bit with your ring finger. That’s an easy and super quick way to do a smokey look, in case your going straight from work to a night out, or are running out the door.

I hope you liked the look too! Much love, Lucy 😀

All I used was a smokey gray finely milled eye shadow from Sephora lining the eyes with an angled brush, and in the crease (optional), and lining the waterlines (both) with black pencil-L’Oreal Pencil Perfect Eyeliner in Ebony. No mascara, blush, or eye primer! And there you go, a simple, gorgeous smokey eye easy to do in less than 30 seconds!!! 😀 I hope you liked this!<Lucy 😀
