Getting Ready: Smoky Eye

judy1

Hey loves! It's getting ready time! Well, not really. This is the look I wore on friday. A classic smoky eye. It is very important though, to know that what grounds a smoky eye is lashes, otherwise it can look like a black eye. And believe me, if you try this you'll know why. For those girls who never wear more than a sheer eyeshadow and liner, there will be a wow factor when wearing a smoky eye. I feel like it's very simple once you practiced enough and manage to do it really quick!

I applied a shadow lighter than flesh tone onto entire lid, from brow to lashline. Then i applied the medium colour from my lashline to the crease and smudged a little black eyeshadow with with fingers. Then blended both colours together.
To get this look you'll need 3 colours of eyeshadow (light, medium and dark), pencil eye liner, a smudge brush, a rounded crease brush, a medium brush, a pointed slant brush, mascara or fake lashes.
I do believe that brushes are important for makeup application, and without a proper brush, the results aren't the same.

Do you wear the smoky eye look often? What other looks do you normally wear?

Please let me know if you would like to see a step by step tutorial of this look or any other!
