How to make a simple smokey eye

    - Advertisement -

    Calling a smokey eye "simple" may not be the right word choice, but if you are going to do a black sweep with just a carbon black matte eye shadow, it is not only "non-simple" but actually quite difficult. Especially if you have a fair complexion like me.

    For a sweeper to have such fine tones that the color goes out into the skin tone in a soft way, and to get black to tone out softly in light beige requires a lot of smearing with the make-up brush.

    But today I thought I would show you an easier way to make a matte smokey eye, and that is with the help of three eye shadows - a light brown, a brown and a black. All are matte and come from Paese cashmere eyeshadow.

    Significantly lighter than just a black eyeshadow! :)

    1. Eyeshadow primer, Pixi eye bright primer
    2. Wrap small transparent pillows in the edges of the make-up (not on the whole eye) so that the primer is not as creamy in the fade, then it is easier to get a soft fade.
    3. Relax your eyebrows and look straight ahead in the mirror, apply light brown shadow over the crease line (skin line over the eyelid) and fade out the edge.
    4. Brown eye shadow under the light brown
    5. Black eye shadow at the bottom of the eyelid
    6. Brown eyeshadow along the lower lash line
    7. Black eyeliner, Paese penliner
    8. Black mascara on all lashes, Magnetic lash mascara
