How to Do a Smokey Eye for beginners
If you are new to the world of smokey eyes, you should start with the lightest colour from the inner corner of your eyes and darken it as you move out. Use the second lightest colour (light grey) from the palette on the inner corner of your eyes. Use it on 1/3rd of your eyelid. Now take the next dark colour and apply. Carefully blend the two with each other. Apply this one on the rest of the 1/3rd portion. Now take the darkest color and apply with outwards strokes. Try to keep a winged shape after the edges of your eyes. You can use a masking tape to work in straight lines.
Now, take the white color from the palette and apply on the tip of the inner corner of your eye. It will give a distinct shine to the inner corner making your eyes look more beautiful. Also apply this white color just below your brows, right on the brow bone. This will help define your brows.
Now that you have achieved the perfect smokey eyes with a smokey eyeshadow under your budget, it’s time to gear up for endless selfies with your best friends!
