Smokey Eye Makeup Application Tutorial

Learn how to create the perfect smokey eye makeup look

Smokey eye makeup application is one of the most popular makeup requests that makeup artists receive, yet one of the most difficult to achieve, due to the fact that not many people know how to create this look without making it look like they got a black eye. The first thing that you should do is apply concealer to the top of your lid in order to prep them for the smokey eye makeup application. Next, apply eyeliner to both your top and bottom rims. Check out 16 Best Eyeliners Under $10 in order to find the best product for your eyes.

Next, use a Q-tip to soften the edges around where you applied the eye liner. Now comes the most challenging part of smokey eye makeup application: applying eye shadow. It is best to use a sponge tip applicator or smudge brush directly over the penciled area to smudge the eye shadow. Make sure you take a look at this list of The Worst Eyeshadows so that you know what products to avoid. Afterwards, apply a neutral shadow around the entire eye area and blend with a brush to soften the look, then top off with mascara. Do not forget to clean up around your eyes with a Q-tip to fix any smears or smudges. Once you are done with that, you are ready to go out for a night on the town with your new smokey eye look!
