    A Step-By-Step Walkthrough On Getting Those Smokey Eyes Ready For Party The first step to a sexy smokey eye is to choose to eye shadow color that will blend to the foundation. The conventional colors of that smokey eye are of course, grey and black because what else will be the color of a smoke. There is a wide array of choices other than the usual black and grey colors for smokey eyes, such as dark blue, purple, dark green, copper, dark pink, coffee, chocolate and violet. Not every color patterns right with the dress you are wearing, and so it is important to choose the right color for your eye shadow that should blend with our skin tone, hair color and eye color as well.
    To rock that smokey eye, you will need to select two color-coordinated eye shadows. To glam up your smokey eyes, choose a darker feature color with your lighter supporting color.
    Here is the eye shadow feature color that matches those blue Western eyes. Working the colors of dark blue, violet or purple along with grey and black traditional colors is perfect for blue eyes. For instance, the dark blue color will emphasize your blue eyes, as it is darker than your eye color. What eye shadow feature colors will make you achieve that smokey eye look if you have green or hazel eyes? Some of the colors that would work best with green or hazel eyes are deep khaki, brown, purple, dark green or plum color, along with the color traditions of black and grey. For brown eyes, what are the eye shadow feature colors to pick? Copper, brown and coffee are the colors that will accentuate those brown eyes. Then, choose the right supporting eye shadow for your eyes. Some prefer using single eye shadows over triple eye shadows, but be sure to match them with the previously chosen eye shadow feature colors. Some of the beautiful colors are light peach, taupe, nude, sand, lilac or champagne colors for that sophisticated and edgy look. Try using a whitish eye shadow color for a highly contrasted look. One reminder to consider is to use powdery eye shadows. If you use those creamy eye shadows, they are harder to smudge and blend. The next step is selecting your eyeliner pencil. The eyeliner pencil color and the feature eye shadow color should be the same or a complementary shade of each other. Powderliner eyeliner pencils work best to achieve those smokey eyes. This is because they are easier to blend with a sponge. Liquid eyeliners are not to be used. These eyeliners are better used for sharper lines, and not for a smokey finish. Applying the foundation base is the third step. Usual makeup styles would have you putting on foundation before the eye makeup. This is different when doing the smokey eye look. The eye makeup is applied first before the foundation to avoid mishaps along the way. If you are familiar with a raccoon eye, this is to avoid it. Apply thin layers of face powder and face foundation on eyelids for a smoother look. This is to prevent the eye shadow from the downsides experienced when creasing. Applying foundation layers will lead to accurate shadow application. Now we go to eyeliner application. Using the pencil, draw on the bottom and top rims of your eyes. The feature eye shadow color must be a perfect match to the color of the eyeliner pencil. Do not forget to apply lines on the eyelash line itself. Do not leave a space black in between the lashes. A fine line has to be drawn from the inner eye corners. The outer corners of the eyes have to have to heavier lines. If you are uncomfortable with the weight of the heavier lines, try to smudge them. Some types of eyeliners usually have a sponge tip for smudging. Darker colors make the eyes look smaller. Start from the middle part of the bottom lash line then towards the outer corners, to avoid smaller eyes. Feel free to use the corner to corner technique if it does not appear very small. Eye shadow application comes next. When applying eye shadow supporting colors, use bigger brushes and run them up the brow base. Upwards the crease of the eyelid, put on a dark feature eye shadow color on the liner. Do not forget to just keep the colors on the eyelash line and do not go overboard. Blending and smudging constantly will blend the applications made so far. Then comes the mascara application. The next step is to apply the mascara. Mascara application is the next step. The eyes will open up if you curl your eyelashes before applying mascara. Two to three coats of black mascara are enough to avoid clumping. Seeing your eyes now way better, completing the look will be easier. Do not mess up those smokey eyes with the application of the foundation. A neutral lip color is perfect with the smokey eyes. To complement the eyes, a pink or caramel lip gloss may be use. A normal eyebrow pencil is enough for this step. Darker eyebrow shades will complement the smokey eyes. A rose or tawny cheek blush will go well with the overall look. These colors will not compete with the colors of the smokey eyes. Enjoy the glam of your smokey eyes.
