A smokey eye is a classic and sultry makeup look that can be perfect for any occasion. This week, iMusthav’s editor would like to share a step-by-step guide on how to achieve this stunning look!
(Optional) Before step 1, if you have unruly or long eyebrows, it’s a good idea to trim them before you start applying your makeup.
A good tool can help you easier to trim your eyebrows more precisely and evenly. Using iMusthav Mini EyeBrow Remover (MV100) or iMusthav Dual Function Brow and Facial Hair Remover (MV400) is a good idea for new-generation females, because either one of these products offers a unique function that is called Pencil Tip. The concept for the MV100 or MV400 came from a pencil tip, which allows users with precision to cut individual hairs, furthermore, both of the products with 360° LED illumination.
Step 1: Prep your eyelids
Before you start applying any makeup, it’s important to prep your eyelids. Apply a primer to your eyelids to ensure that your eyeshadow stays in place all day. This will also help to prevent creasing and smudging.
Step 2: Apply a base color
Choose a neutral eyeshadow shade that is close to your skin tone and apply it all over your eyelids. This will create a smooth base for the rest of your eyeshadow.
Step 3: Apply a darker shade
Choose a darker eyeshadow shade, such as black, gray, or brown, and apply it to the outer corner of your eyelid. Use a blending brush to blend the color into your crease, making sure to blend out any harsh lines.
Step 4: Add depth
To add depth to your smokey eye, apply a darker shade to the outer corner of your eyelid. Use a small brush to apply the color along your lash line, making sure to blend it outwards.
Step 5: Highlight your brow bone
Use a light eyeshadow shade to highlight your brow bone. Apply the color just under your eyebrow and blend it downwards.
Step 6: Apply eyeliner
Apply a black eyeliner to your upper lash line, making sure to get as close to your lash line as possible. You can also apply eyeliner to your lower lash line if you prefer a more dramatic look.
Step 7: Smudge your eyeliner
Use a smudging brush to smudge your eyeliner, creating a smokey effect. This will soften the look and create a more blended effect.
Step 8: Apply mascara
Finish off your smokey eye by applying mascara to your lashes. Use a volumizing mascara to create full and dramatic lashes.
And there you have it, darling! A stunning smokey eye that is sure to turn heads. Remember to have fun and experiment with different eyeshadow shades to create a look that is uniquely you.
