Evening makeup step by step
In this article we will examine two classic evening makeup that will go with any look and will look appropriate for various formal events.
How to do classic Smokey eyes
Smokey in the classic view – this make-up technique, in which the shadows, staying rich, soft shade on the outer eye contour, creating the effect of “haze” (from the English. smokey). Traditional color eyeshadow in this makeup – black; however, you can use the muted grey and dark brown shades (their use is particularly justified case, if the model is light enough and soft appearance). Oddly enough, classic matte option is not suitable for those who want to increase the eye – in this case it is better to apply lighter shades, diversified Smokey shining product or even choose a different technique of makeup. Owners of close-set eyes it is not necessary to darken the inner corners of the eyelid. Because Smokey only implies a technique of applying and blending eye shadow, this makeup can be done with shadows of any color, complemented by glitter or shiny shadows – but says in this article about evening make-up, focus on classic dark shades.
So, to create smoky eyes at home you should:
- To prepare the eyelid. Apply to eyelids for eye shadow base and wait until it dries and locks. If you have not turned base, try to replace it with the creams: apply a tone on the eyelid and lightly powder. Ensure the base is not pushed.

Gently blend the outer border rastushevok clean brush (or a brush with the shadows ludowego shade). As a rule, for the shading pencil used is a synthetic brush. Some kiala and apply on the lower eyelid, and lightly blend.
- Take the brush to apply shadow (flat with a rounded tip made of natural bristles when working with powder shadows and synthetic for cream eyeshadow) and apply a black (or other dark) shadow on a substrate of Kayala and blend them, as in the previous paragraph, only in this case, take rastushevok brush with natural bristles – it is better suited for working with dry shadows. Duplicate the pencil on the lower eyelid shadows.

- Don’t forget to use a concealer – it will remove the dark rings under the eyes, thereby smoky eyes will look more advantageously. The concealer also gives the makeup a more “clean” and neat look. Since shadows tend to crumble, which is especially unpleasant when working with dark shades, we propose to apply a toner and concealer after the eye makeup to be completed.
- If you want with the help of Smokey, to achieve a more ceremonial than dramatic effect – can be applied at the center of a century (and gently feather the edges) any shiny topper: ukrany pigment (for example, Inglot), loose glitter, glittery shadows, shining topper like Lime Crime Diamond Crusher , etc. For applying glitter or pigment, use a flat synthetic brush and apply the product slowly, “imprinting” movements.
