DIY : Easy Steps To Smoky Eye Makeup

1.Pick a multitonal eye-shadow palette, like the  one at left. Prime your lid by patting on regular foundation — it’ll form a base  for your makeup to stick to.

2.Dip the tip of a dampened makeup brush into the  darkest shadow, and draw a line across your upper and lower lash lines.

3.Before the shadow dries, look up and blink—this  marks a line on your skin in the creases, which you’ll want to fill up to with  your contouring, medium shadow.

4.Rub the softest color in your palette above the  creases and up to the brow bones to highlight.

5.Sweep the light, pearly shadow around the  corners of your eyes to make them seem larger (you can even dust a little under  your lower lashes to offset dark circles).

6.Trace on one last layer of the darkest color as  liner, and smudge it with your finger or a cotton swab for a blurred effect.


7. For extra oomph, curl your lashes, and coat on  the deepest, darkest mascara you can find.
