It might seem to be quite a task at hand creating smokey eyes for an occasion. No matter what part of the world they live in, every girl has fancied to get perfect smokey eyes just like they do on television.
Even makeup fiends and artist all around the world take absolute amount of pains and time and the right kind of tools to master the art to get it done just the way it should be. Smokey eyed look has been the classical look women have carried through time and it has always been widely accepted by all.
Smokey eyes look very dramatic and sophisticated at the same time. The classical way to create smokey eyes is to use different hues of black and grey. It is very traditional to use these colours but in modern times almost any colour can be used to create smokey eyes.
The rule is to use three different hues of colour. A light creamy colour is used along with a base colour and one dark smokey colour. These could be potentially any colours that you can get your hands on.
The colours that you use must accentuate your skin tone. Do not try just about anything. Your sponge applicator which you find in your regular eye shadow kit is just the perfect piece of tool to apply different colours that you need for your smokey eyes.
The loose powder eye shadows are just the right thing to blend in different hues of colours. There are cream and pressed powder shadows available too but the best results can be shown with loose powder eye shadows.
Use pencil eyeliner preferably instead of cream or liquid eye liners to create a well blended Smokey eye. The liquid and cream eyeliners are used when you want to get a smooth finish to the whole look of your eye.
Make sure you do not smear colours in the process otherwise you will destroy the whole look. Perfect strokes should be practiced before you can finally do the job in the best possible manner.
Certain mistakes can be undone or concealed with the help of makeup remover and q-tips. You essentially need to have a rounded or domed shaped brush to fix any mistakes.
To get the most ideal look, you need to start doing your eye makeup by applying a concealer and then a loose powder so that you can balance uneven skin tone. This way you can hide all the flaws that might show below your makeup.
It looks better if you get a smudged eyeliner look. Make a line across your upper lash line.
The end of the line should be blurred upwards to get that distinguished Smokey eyed look.
