There are many ways to achieve Smokey Eye Makeup for Beginners, but for beginners, the most important thing is to start with a light base. Using a light eyeshadow on the entire lid will help create a foundation for the darker shades you will use in the crease and outer corners. Once you have applied your light shade, use a medium-dark shadow in the crease of your eye and blend outward.

To intensify the look, wet an eyeliner brush and apply black shadow along your upper and lower lash lines.

One of the most popular and timeless looks in makeup is the smokey eye. It’s a look that can be worn day or night, and it’s perfect for any occasion. Smokey eyes are also relatively easy to do, even for beginners.

Here is a step-by-step guide on how to create a beautiful smokey eye:

1) Start with a clean face and apply your usual foundation and concealer. Then, take a nude eyeshadow and sweep it across your entire eyelid.

This will act as a base for the other shadows and help them blend better.

2) Next, choose two shades of eyeshadow – one lighter and one darker. For the lighter shadow, apply it to the inner corner of your eye and blend outward.

Then, take the darker shadow and apply it to the outer corner of your eye and blend inward. Make sure to connect both colors in the middle so there is no line of demarcation.

3) To add more depth to your smokey eye, take a dark brown or black eyeshadow (depending on how dramatic you want your look to be) and lightly dust it along your lower lash line. Then, use an eyeliner pencil or liquid liner to tight line your upper lash line – this means tracing along the waterline of your eye without actually lining your lid itself. Finally, curl your lashes and apply mascara as desired.

4) To finish off the look, fill in any sparse areas with more shadow or liner until you’re happy with the result.

And that’s it! You’ve now created a gorgeous smokey eye look that is perfect for any occasion!
