kemi The smokey eyes have been a big style for quite awhile and there's definitely no sign this particular trend is dying. whether,you are going for a party,wedding or whatever the occasion may be,the smokey look is one look you can pull off softly yet subtle or you can go for a full accentuated smokey eyes.there are various types and ways of achieving a smokey eyes.let me give you a step-by-step tutorial on how to get the perfect edgy smokey eye. The key to the perfect smokey eye is proper blending. To achieve a perfect eyes,you must blend, blend and blend.You want to make sure colors are blended together flawlessly. I always my clients, you must rush out of home,you can do without the eye shadow.never be in a hurry to apply the eye's important to pair your colors rightly. Nice mixes include: Soft gold base with deep purple on top, champagne base with bright blue and peach base with green hue,black base with brown,brown of different tones,as the list goes on...depending on what look or colour you are going for. The key to keeping eyeshadow from greasing,is to keep eyelids oil-free.... Step 1-Startup with an eyeshadow base.a primer.this is an important aspect to achieving a flawless eyes. Prep the lid with an eye primer,this will help your eye stay longer.there are also great primers used in achieving a perfect smokey eyes.some primer also come in different colours.i would recommend a primer in black(when going for a really dark smokey eyes).if not,use your regular primer. Every now and then,makeup artist give advice on how well to achieve certain looks.there are basically no definite colours to this look, it only depends on how and what colours works perfect foryou. soyou can try different methods,colours and find out which works best for you. there are a few ways to achieve this look,but here is one very easy step especially for beginners,to give you that perfect edgy smokey eyes using your regular brown and black shadow. Step 2-apply eyeliner -if you are going for a typical black,brown or grey smokey eye.bodly apply a pitch black eyeliner on the upper lash line,giving it a little wing(I prefer a cream eyeliner).(if you are looking for a sharp edge and can't create one,use a tape to make a stencil,placing it in an angular position,then remove gently once you are done with your eye makeup).Gently smudge upwards in a c angle using a smudge brush. eyes Step 3-apply black shadow-directly on lid,then blend towards crease,making sure it smokes out and erases all fine lines(remember, the key to this look is blending).invest also in professional tools. eyes1 Step 4-apply brown shadow-on the crease and blend into black.(note that it is easier to add more than to take away, start with a light layer first, then gradually build into your liking).blend,blend and blend . eye2 Step 5-repeat same steps for bottom lash-apply your eyeliner,blend,then pat your black shadow on,blend together,lastly apply your brown shadow,blend in colour can also use a finger to give you a smudge effect. eyes3Highlight your brow bone with a fleshy tone shadow,with the same colour,blend into crease to create a smokey effect. Lastly,line your eyes using a black pencil,liquid or gel liner.i like to top this on to darken the eyes even more. Again you must be careful not to move your darker colour way above your crease and make sure your brows are well groomed. Be very careful. When applying around the edges of the eyes.make sure to have a firm grip of your brush to prevent smearing. kemi1 Double check your work, make sure your colours blend well and smokes out properly.finish off with several coats of mascara or if you are like me,put on a false lash as this will give you a striking edgy effect.this look is perfect with a nude lip.then we are done.easy*winks*.
