Smokey Eye Tip Every Girl Should Know

Friday, July 13, 2012

While scrolling through Pinterest, we stumbled upon Miss Natty's Beauty Diary and saw the most gorgeous smokey eye and we were inspired to share with you guys how to achieve this look!

1. When applying grey or black eyeshadow to your lid, make sure not to go all the way up to the crease. Apply to the lid, and then with a clean crease brush, blend any harsh edges. 

2. To make this look warmer and more natural looking, apply a medium brown eyeshadow or even bronzer to the crease of the eye to create a natural shadow. This will make the eyeshadow less harsh.

3. Highlight the brow bone and inner corners of the eyes to add light to a very dramatic eye.

4. The most important step- always use under eye concealer when using dark, smoky shades.

Tip #1 is probably why I've never liked a smoky eye for me. I was taking the dark color too high up. Hmmm, maybe I'll try it again.
