The first step to achieving full-color, long-lasting smokeye eyes is to prepare the eyelid with a primer. This nude cream eyeshadow neutralizes skin discoloration and ensures easy application and a highly pigmented result.
The second step is to fix the primer with a translucent powder: this will allow you to remove the oils from the eyelid and create a smooth base to blend the eyeshadows easily.
Curiously, the first color to apply to make a black smokey eye is not black. In fact, you need to choose a medium nude color called 'transitional' to be applied in the crease of the eye with a soft bristle brush. This will allow you to create a more elegant make-up without sharp detachments.
It's time to start incorporating 'smokey' into our look. First, use a crazy eye with a soft intense black lead and blend it in small strokes at the base of the upper lash line. With a pen brush, blend upwards. Repeat this until you reach the desired intensity level.
With a flat brush, start pressing the black eyeshadow where you previously blended the pencil: the union of the two products will create a long lasting result. After applying the black, blend it towards the crease of the eye with the help of the color transition color and the soft bristle brush used earlier.
With the help of a small brush, blend a black pencil to the attachment of the lower lash line. For an intense look, also apply it to the inner rim of the eye.
For those with small eyes, or who want to get a smokey look without renouncing to open their eyes, just replace the black pencil with a butter-colored one in the inner rhyme of the eye.
It's time to curl your lashes: this will help open your eyes and prepare them for mascara application.
Choose a volumizing mascara with an extra black color.
