How do you get that smokey eye look? For prom or any special occasion, having a smokey eye can really complete your overall look. Using nudes or neutral colors will compliment any style or color of dress.
In 5 easy steps, the smokey eye can be yours!
Step 1: With an eye shadow brush or sponge (IT Cosmetics has the best eye brush! Check it out on Ulta.com or go to an Ulta Beauty near you) to apply your base eye color. Apply conservatively on your lid and above the crease of the eye socket. Use your finger to blend out towards your brow bone.
Step 2: Using a “middle” color from your palette (Urban Decay has amazing nude palettes. Also available at Ulta), apply to the base of your eye lid above the lash line and looping around the corner of your eye socket at the outer corner.
Step 3: Take the darkest color you would like to use and apply with an angle brush (a brush that you use to fill in your eyebrows works really well) along the edge of your “middle” color shadow and on the outer edge, apply about 1/3 of the way along your eye socket.
Step 4: Blend your “middle” color and your darkest color with a soft brush until the edges are no longer a sharp edge. All 3 colors should be distinct but the lines are no longer defined.
Step 5: Apply your favorite eyeliner on the top and bottom of your lashes. Then apply your mascara and we are finished with the look!
There you go! You have your SMOKEY EYE!
