Follow these 5 simple steps to achieve the perfect smokey eye.
We dare you to try it!
Using a fluffy blending brush, apply a light brown shadow over your whole eyelid.
Take a darker brown shadow and blend this into the outer corner and crease of your eye.
TIP: Blend some of this colour onto the outer half of your lower lash line to make your eye look bigger and more open.
Take a pointed brush and blend a black eye shadow into the outer half of your upper lash line to give that really smokey look.
Include a pop of colour by applying a light shimmery shadow onto the inner corner of your eye. This makes your eye appear open and bright and give you a youthful appearance.
Apply a coat of mascara over your curled top and bottom lashes.
TIP: For a more dramatic look, add a pair of false lashes!
