Smokey eye makeup is one beauty trend that has been in existence for ages and right now it’s having a major moment across the globe. Sure, it is not a look we can rock every day but we can not deny that for special occasions and evening events, it has the ability to take your look from “oh nice” to “oh wow!”
One of the reasons the smokey eye makeup look has remained so popular for so long is its versatility. Smokey eyes do not only come in the signature black but can be done in almost every colour out there. Gray, blue, burgundy – you name it, you can smoke it. You can also spice things up with a mix of colours. The intensity of your smokey eye is also a matter of choice as you’ll see in this list.
While smokey eye is one of the most popular makeup looks, it can be very tricky to achieve when you don’t know the right techniques to use. The tricks to mastering a perfect smokey eye is choosing the right colour for your skin tone; choosing a lighter shade for transitioning and most importantly blending! Great blending is the major key here. How well you blend the eye shadow tones into your eye lids determines whether or not your smokey eye look ends up hot or hmm.
