I am seeing too many girls go all out when doing the "smokey eye" although there's no limitations to make-up there's certain guidelines that can make the look appear clean and proffessional. However if you miss the guidelines it can look dirty, messy and cheap.
My top tips to get that pro smokey eye.
1 - Smokey eye DOES NOT mean just black or grey. You can create a smokey eye with any colour as long as you graduate into a darker shade.
2 - Keep it clean! Its all about the eyes so don't pile on the powder, foundation, blusher, highlighter and loads of gloss. It tinkers on the side of cheap. It looks pretty against clean fresh looking skin and a soft lip. You can even have a little bit of a brighter lip as long as the skin looks simple.
3- Do you foundation last if you use very dark colours or loose pigment.
4 - A smokey eye shouldn't need tonnes of products. I used 2 colours on the eye and an eyeliner!
- Dior 5 colour palette in Navy
- MAC carbon eyeshadow
- Maxfactor liquid effect pencil in black
- Maxfactor false lash effect mascara
- Nars Barberella
- Jemma Kidd glosstick in Turtle Bay
- Myface cosmetics foundation in Medium
- MAC Studio fix NW25
