Smokey eye tutorial steps

1. Prime the upper eyelids with an eyeshadow primer.

2. Apply the matte black eyeshadow to the outer corner of the eyelid, extending a bit into the crease, forming a rough ‘V’.

3. Line the upper lash line with black kohl/ eyeliner. Smudge the line to get a soft look.

4. Apply the taupe eyeshadow to the rest of the lid, from the inner corner to the outer part. Blend with the matte black eyeshadow on the outer corner and crease using windwiper motion.

5.  Apply a n*de eyeshadow to the brow bone to get a neat, defined look. You may use your regular compact too. The purpose here is to get a neat, defined brow-bone.

6.  Apply kohl to the lower lash-line, as per the shape of your eye. If the eyes are small, like mine, apply the kohl on the outer 2/3rds of the lash line. If your eyes are of a good size, extend the kohl till the inner corner.

7. Curl eyelashes using an eyelash curler.

8. Apply your favorite mascara. 

9. Apply concealer under the eyes, to cover any dark circles.

Done! Wasn’t it simple?
