Smokey Eye Tutorial

Our makeup artists always get the request for the “Smokey Eye”.  Here are a few quick DIY tips.

What you’ll need:

3 eyeshadows – one light, one medium and one dark.
A soft black kohl pencil one that smudges easily. If you are doing a colored smokey eye though, have a play with a matching liner (eg for purple smoky eyes you can use a dark plum colored pencil)
Eyeshadow brushes – at least one blending brush (long, soft and loose hairs)
Black Mascara – whatever your favorite is, dramatic is always good for an intense eye makeup.

An Eyeshadow base or primer – to help give your eyeshadow intensity and keep it all on and in place all night without creasing.
Under eye concealer and a concealer brush
A few tissues and cotton tips (tissues to get excess product off brushes if necessary, cotton tips to remove any product from where it shouldn’t be)
