Step 1: Prep and Prime

Before diving into the world of dramatic smokey eye makeup, it's crucial to prep your canvas. Start by applying a small amount of eye primer to your eyelids to create a smooth base and ensure longevity. This step helps prevent creasing and ensures the eyeshadow colours pop out.

Step 2: Choose Your Colours

Smoky eye makeup can be achieved with a variety of colour combinations, with an eye palette having different colour variants. From classic black and grey to sultry browns, purples, or even vibrant hues. Select three eyeshadow shades:

  1. a light base colour.
  2. a medium transition shade, and
  3. a dark shade for depth and to intensify

These hues should complement your eye colour and outfit, allowing you to create cohesive evening eye makeup.

Step 3: Create the Gradient

Begin by applying the lightest shade all over your eyelids, extending it up to your brow bone. This colour serves as a base and helps blend the darker shades seamlessly. For seemless application, ensure your eye makeup brush serves the purpose. Next, take the medium transition shade and apply it to the crease, starting from the outer corner and blending inward using windscreen wiper motions. This step creates depth and dimension.

The brushes should be smooth and have easy application, just like Ecotools Daily Defined Eye Brush Kit

Step 4: Intensify the Drama

Now it's time to bring the drama to your smokey eye makeup. Using a small eyeshadow brush or a smudge brush, apply the darkest shade along the upper lash line, working it into the outer corner and blending it slightly into the crease. Build the colour gradually to achieve the desired intensity. Remember to blend effortlessly to avoid any harsh lines.

Step 5: Add Eyeliner and Mascara to complete the magical look.

Apply black or dark-coloured eyeliner along your upper lash line. You can create a winged effect or keep it simple with a smooth line. If desired, also line your lower lash line, focusing on the outer half to maintain balance. Finish off with a few coats of mascara to make your lashes appear fuller and more voluminous.
