Hot Smoky Eyes

As many of us have noticed, smoky eyes have been seen everywhere. The Oscars, red carpets, that late night party, prom...and it doesn't seem like they're going anywhere. The thing about smoky eyes is that they work for any occasion and at anytime because the make-up is kept simple and not at all overdone, all it does is add that sensual look and add mystery to your glamorous look. 

Here's how to get the look my way, simple yet perfect:

Things you may need:
A dark eyeshadow: brown (chocolate or hazelnut colors), charcoal or bronze
A flat eyeliner brush
A cotton swab

Simply begin by applying a nude color eyeshadow over your entire lid. This will help keep your make-up in place to prevent from smudges or creases. Now take the edge of your eyeliner brush and dip it into the dark eyeshadow (whatever color you have chosen). Tap the edges lightly to take the extra powder off.

Gently, press the tip of the eyeliner brush onto the base of your upper lashes. Then repeat the same step along the outer length (also known as lash edges) of your eyelashes. If you need additional eyeshadow, feel free to use.

Now take the cotton swab, and gently smudge the liner upwards to blend it in with the nude eyeshadow. Finish off the look by putting on two coats of a preferably black mascara to top and bottom lashes.

Some tips:

Eyeshadow colors by eye color:

For Blue Eyes- Brown Eyeshadow will work better
(You can also work with charcoal and black by mixing them)
For Hazel Eyes- Deep Plum or a Purple Eyeshadow
For Brown Eyes- Chocolate or Dark brown mixed with Bronze 
(darker color on top, lighter on bottom)
