The number one step to exciting smoky eyes is…. naturally enough, eyeliner.
You’ll be able to use either a pencil or a liquid for this technique. We advise a fine-drawn line in preferably a dark colour, following along the top lash line.
Then add a little liner underneath the eye in the outer corner. Unless you’re blessed with gorgeous large eyes, do not ring the eye with liner, as this makes the eyes appear much smaller – not so sexy!.
Remember that lighter colours will produce fullness and highlight an area, while darker colours will create depth.
Start with a medium-tone shadow on the lid, then a dark-toned shadow on the outer corners of the lid.
A fainter shadow could be used directly underneath the brow as a highlighter.
Experiment with different colours and applications – and – here’s a golden tip – take a photo of each result so you can compare and critique at leisure.
