The classic smokey eye never goes out of style and suits everyone. Next, using a dark green color, fill in the lower half of your eyelid. Smokey eyes are one of the most popular and trendy current makeup looks. Apply the deep cobalt color all over the eyelid but stop right underneath the crease. If you want more of a warm, brown smokey eyes, which would look incredible on those with lighter eyes such as blues and greens, then opt for warm, rustier shades of browns which are red or orange based.
Now you can apply your liner and lashes. Using either liquid eyeliner or a pencil, draw solid lines all around the eyes. Makeup Revolution's Ultra eyeshadow palette in ‘Mermaids Forever' can be used to achieve this look. Begin at the outside corner of your eyes, and sweep in a ‘C' shape from the about halfway inwards (from the outside of your face) on the lash line, back up and around to about halfway inwards on the crease of your eyelid.
Next, apply the metallic blue eyeshadow. Next I am going to go in with the shade Roxanne and apply it under and slightly on the black shade I applyed to sort of mix them together. Make sure you highlight your eyebrow bone and the inner corner of your eyes with a lighter shade of eyeshadow to make your eyes look more awake and youthful.
Sweep a little of your dark shadow under your eye onto your lower lid. At the center, apply a nice shimmery gold eyeshadow (one that is highly pigmented is preferable). For some added shine, blend some silver eye shadow across your entire eyelid. To define your upper and lower lashline, use a deep brown or a black eyeshadow and apply this with an angular brush along the lashline.
Also, use this to define the outer corners of your lower lashline. Again, blend the dark color into the light gold and pink. The darkest part should always be the point at the upper edge of your lash line. Any brown-eyed ladies are unaware of the different ways to use makeup in order to make their eyes pop.
Take your middle eyeshadow shade and sweep it over your entire eyelid. Professional makeup artists use a beige pencil in order to make brown eyes look bigger. This is a quick and simple day look how to do makeup like a pro that gives your eyes the right amount of definition and color. Prime and prep your eyes and start by applying the light purple shade of eyeshadow on your eyelid.
Apply the beige eyeshadow to your crease area lightly. Use pitch-black eyeliner to accentuate your smoky eye. The trick here is to blend properly and to use eyeshadows that are pigmented enough. Apply a primer or concealer to your eyelids. Warm-toned ladies - choose a bronzed brown color to fill in your entire eyelids, taking care not to color in above the crease of your lids.
Line the waterline with the Eyestudio® Lasting Drama® Waterproof Gel Pencil in ‘Soft Nude' to make the eyes appear bigger and brighter. Use the brush in circular motions to blend it from the inner corner to the outer corner. Fill the remaining area with your gold eyeshadow and blend the two.
The first thing that you need to do is put a light brown color on your eyelids. Whenever you need to apply more of your dark shadow, start at this point and work inwards or upwards. Next comes the crease of the eyes. End it in a tapered line slightly before the edge of your eyeshadow (where the darkest part meets your un-shadowed skin).
Define your lower lashline with an angular brush using both green and black eyeshadow. Line your lower waterline and lashline with a black eyeliner pencil. Use your liquid eyeliner to line your upper lashline along the traced area for more precision. Line your lower waterline using a black eyeliner pencil.
Next, choose a dark brown color on the outer part of the eye and add a white just below the eyebrow to really bring out the browns. Using your bronze eyeliner pencil, define your lower lash line to highlight the area. Any color can be used to create a smoky eye, although you will need at least three shades of a similar hue.
Take a pencil in whatever color you chose and make a thick line on your upper lash line. Apply a winged line with the black liquid or gel eyeliner. Once again, use a brush to smudge and soften out the kohl along your lower lashline. Apply a primer and start by covering your eyelid with a nude eyeshadow for the base.
