First things first, choose a desired shade before beginning with the makeup. Some great options include Nude Cashmere, Beige, Smokey Taupe, Chocolate Veil, Diffused Black, and Beautiful Burgundy. You can go for other shades too but these are some of the best. If you are looking for a tutorial on smokey eyes then check out this blog, we have mentioned a step-by-step tutorial for the same.

Step 2: Ready the Base

A base is mandatory for any makeup to smoothen and moisturize the skin. That too for your eyelids, the thinnest skin layers, you must take some measures of precaution before you start your makeup.

Now, there are a few options to consider for your base- concealer, eye shadow primer, etc. Some people say that some primers leave an ashy hue on the lids. We suggest you go with a good concealer. If you adore smokey eyes then here are some beautiful smokey eyes wedding makeup ideas for you.

Step 3: Set the Concealer

The next significant step is to set the concealer with a translucent powder to fully protect the eyelids.

Step 4: Blend the Concealer

Apply a dot of your concealer to each lid to get rid of the blemishes and highlight your beautiful features. Instead of your regular concealer, we suggest you choose a liquid concealer so that your eyelids don’t appear discolored or blotchy. Here are some eye makeup ideas if you want to settle for a simple and sophisticated look.

Step 5: Apply a Neutral Base

Before you start applying the desired shade, we recommend you apply a neutral shade at the base. This base shadow, also called transition shade, helps with the blending of the shades with your skin tone.

Step 6: Drive Your Focus on the Lids

After the base neutral color, it is time you focus on the eyelids. Start by blending a deeper colored eyeshadow on the lids and start creating depth and dimension. The best option is to use the brush you used earlier, flipping it to the other side and lightly tapping the eyeshadow onto the lid until you get your desired look.

Step 7: Use the “Light to Dark” Technique

For an utterly gorgeous smokey eyeshadow look, use lighter tones and colors toward the inner corner and darker ones toward the outside. 

Step 8: Learn the Magic of Blend

To add extra depth and highlight the shape of your eyes, choose the darkest eyeshadow hue and mix it onto your crease. The best way to accomplish this is to blend it back and forth in a semicircular motion using a tapered brush. Expert advice is to blend for a longer period, even after you are done blending. 

Effective blending will guarantee that all of your eyeshadows complement one another and produce a more professional look. You will therefore be set to go if you blend, blend, blend, and when in doubt, blend even more. 

Use mascara to complete the look of your matte eyeshadow look after applying eyeliner, kajal, or both. With the Fashion Brow Eyebrow Pencil, you can easily finish your style by improving the contour of your eyebrows. 

Step 9: Color the Lower Lash Area

For a professional look, define the eyes using the base color among all your eyeshadows. Color the inner part of the waterline with white color before applying any color, to make the eyes look bright and large. 

Take the same eyeshadow brush you used earlier to blend in the base transition color on the upper eyelids.

Apply minimal color from the all-matte eyeshadow palette along the lower lash line by dabbing it gently.

Mix the color so that the lash line has a touch of the base color rather than a strong color line.

Make sure you keep the hues of the eyeshadow on your lashes, both lower and upper, to a minimum until your brows are fully formed.

Step 10: Complete the Look with Framing, Mascara, and Liner

at the end do the framing, mascara and the lineer

Using a small, flat brush and brown eyeshadow, define the brows first.

After creating the outline, use the same dark brown color to fill in only the sparse regions to give the appearance of bigger eyebrows.

Next, use a curler to curl the lashes, and then apply a volumizing mascara. You can also use this for your regular outfits.

Wear it according to your makeup demands. Adding a liquid eyeliner set along the top lashes will assist in further defining the eyes and the overall effect.
