Any girl can be a fan of smokey eyes, sadly, however, not many girls actually master this look. I’m about to share all my tips and make all of them a detailed guideline for you to follow. These 9 steps are super easy, even the beginners can achieve this look by following them.
1. SMOKEY EYE STEP 1: EYE SHADOW PRIMER
To keep your makeup lasts as long as possible. Remember to put on the eyeshadow primer. It also helps facilitate the application process of the pigments.

2. SMOKEY EYE STEP 2: CONCEALER
Hide all the dark circles away. Don’t leave them there because those shadows will totally kill your sexiness, I must say.

3. SMOKEY EYE STEP 3: POWDER
Here is the secret from the pro: lather up a translucent powder right on top of the concealer layer. Wait a bit and dust it off.

4. SMOKEY EYE STEP 4: DARK EYESHADOW
Apply dark shades such as black, gray, navy, plum, or forest green from your lash lines to the creases of your eyes.

5. SMOKEY EYE STEP 5: SMUDGE IT OUT
Gradually and gently blend the shadow. Apply another layer with the same color into the bottom of your lash lines.

6. STEP 6: DRAW EYELINER
Now that your color is locked in, define your eye with black eyeliner. For an extra ~sultry~ effect, line your inner bottom lash line too.
7. STEP 7: HIGHLIGHTER
To add a pop of light to your smokey eye, blend a shimmery highlighter along your brow bone and over the inner V corner of your eye.
8. STEP 8: EYELASH CURLER + MASCARA
Nothing sexier than curly eyelashes, we all know that.
Practice as much as possible until you are ready to show your skills off.
