Step by Step: the Smokey Eyes

The smoky eye look is perfect for a night out, follow our easy step by step guide to learn how to achieve it.

1 Eyeliner

Start by drawing a black kohl pencil close to the upper eyelashes and underneath the eye. Don’t worry about it looking even as you’ll smudge it out with a small brush.





2 Eyeshadows

The next step is blending the kohl pencil lines with a dark grey or black eye shadow all the way up to the globe line. Finish off with a light shimmery eye shadow in the inner corner of the eyes.





Now, apply plenty of mascara on both your upper and lower lashes for a dramatic eye effect.



4 Conceal

Brush away any spillage of mascara or eye shadow underneath your eyes and cover with concealer and finish the look by applying a nude lip stick! And there you have it, a striking smokey eye look perfect for any night out! For a video tutorial click
