5. BLACK MATTE SMOKEY EYE
The key for a perfect smokey eye is – blending, blending, blending! Your smokey eye should be softly blended at the edges, without any harsh lines. Forget about cheap eyeshadow applicators and invest in few good brushes. They’ll do the whole work for you. Pair your smokey eye with a nude color lipstick for balance.
Step 1: Begin by applying a primer and base shadow. Apply a matte, grey shadow on your eye lid and blend it. With a pencil brush, add matte, black eye shadow to your lash line.
Step 2: Blend! Add a touch of color on the lower lash line and blend it out. Take a look at your eyes and make sure everything is blended. If not, grab that brush and start to blend!
Step 3: Highlight the inner corner of the eye and brow bone. Line your water line with black pencil.
Step 4: Curl your lashes, add mascara and finish the look with long, wispy false lashes.
