Smokey Eyes Tutorial

Make-up Artist and Body Painter Alana Dunlevy walks you through the perfect Friday night smokey-eye. Enjoy!

Here is my take on the classic smokey eyes. Its quite a soft look but can be made more dramatic by applying it heavier.

I used white, grey and black, but you can use any colours as long as you have a light, medium and dark.

Step 1

Apply a good base and the white shadow to the inner corner to half way, just on the lid.

Step 2

Next apply the grey to the middle of the lid, to the outer corner.

 

Step 3

I then apply black shadow to the outer corner, I only apply it to the lid and in to the crease.

Step 4 

Then with a blending brush start in the inner corner and in small circular motions blend out and up along the crease and on to the socket bone.

Apply white to under the brow and blend down.

Step 5

With a small flat brush apply a black shadow under outer corner and under the lashline, and do the same with the white to the inner corner.

Blend well!!

Step 6

Finish off with some black liquid liner and lashings of mascara.

Bonus! Gold smokey eye for when you want to turn it up to 11.

Step 1

Apply a black mat eyeshadow (I used mac) to lids and lower lash line

Apply a gold shimmer eyeshadow to the crease and blend upwards towards the brow and then blend on to black on the lid.

Blend really well.

Step 2

Blend in small circular motions the black under the eye and apply a small about of gold to the inner corners.

Apply a generous amount of liquid eyeliner to the top lid, topped off with gold glitter eyeliner and loads of mascara.
