Beauty Made Easy: Holiday Edition

In my makeup career, I am constantly asked how to do a smokey eye. But nine times out of 10, most people don’t understand what exactly a smokey eye is. It’s not just black eyeshadow everywhere or dark colors. It’s a formula which you can apply to any palette or color schemes. It’s a process of blending and more blending! So grab your brushes and lets do this!

Start by applying eye shadow primer, like the lip primer, it acts as “glue” for the eyeshadow to stay put all day and night.

Then, apply the lid color next. Sweep the color from your lashes up to your crease, or the space in between your eye and brow bone.

Next, in that same space, blend in a arch motion your “crease color.” A cease color is any neutral color that ties the other colors together.

Now, apply the darker or outer crease color in a small circular motion, blending in, towards your crease.

Finally apply your brow highlight, right under your brow arch. For day time, I like to use a matte or no shine color. For night, a little glitter or shine never hurts.

Apply your liner and mascara and your ready!

Tips: Pair a smoky eye withe a neutral lip with either a pink or peach undertone.
Blending a little eyeshadow on top of your liner helps it stay and not smudge.
Line the inside of your top lid to make your lashes look fuller.
