Smoky Eyes

         Applying a single eye shade is an older style...!! with a simple trick we can make the eye shade look different.  
          Not only celebrities can have this look,we can also have by learning  some simple blending techniques. 
Just we have to make sure colors are blended together flawlessly. Also, it's important to pair light base colors with rich dark colors. Nice mixes include: Soft gold base with deep purple on top, champagne base with bright blue and peach base with green.Here I will show you how to get a smoky touch to your eyes.You can then have irresistible-looking eyes, even if they are not big or bright.

  • Start doing the eye shadow start with an eye shadow base (also called "primer"). Simply apply the primer across the eye and let it dry.The   secret to keep eye shadow from melting is by using oil-free. 
  • If you're going for a  black, brown or gray smoky eye, apply liner in one of those colors above the upper lash line, drawing line thicker in the middle of eye. If you're opting for a jewel-toned eye (violet makes a gorgeous smokey eye), line eyes with a purple, blue or deep green. 
  • For color on the bottom (a key smokey eye look) you'll want to use a eyeliner pencil because they're easiest to smudge. 
  • Once the line is drawn, run a cotton bud over it to smudge the line. You can also apply a bit of shadow to get full smudge effect.  

  • Apply light base color: Again, the key to a smokey eye is pairing a lighter base with the darker shade. The light shade is selected such away it suits your skin.You can select a shimmery shade also.
  • Now that you have the base and eyeliner on, it's time to get the smokey effect. You need a darker eyeshadow shade. Using an eyeshadow brush blend in color starting at your lash line, blending up. Make sure to blend color into the lash line so the eye liner disappears. 
  • Make sure eyes match and blend color. 
  • Apply a few coats of mascara so lashes are thick and dark. If you don't have naturally long, curled lashes, curl them with a lash curler first.  
  • If you make a mess, with the help of a cotton buds clear it up.
  • It may take a few tries to get it right, but when you do, the results are outstanding.
