Smokey Eye Shadow Tutorial - Get The Look For Less


 

This smokey eye makeup tutorial is exactly what I’ve been looking for! It is titled “Summertime Smokies”, but it is seasonless in my opinion and is perfect for anyone looking for a neutral anytime smokey eye. This tutorial covers everything from shadow primer to the art of the smudge.

The mistake I always made was to apply light shadow first and then layer it with a darker shade. This tutorial shows you how to apply medium colors (on the outer 2/3 of your lid), then darker in the corner, and finally blend the light colors over that (inner 1/3 of lid and brow bone) so that you have no hard lines. So easy!

After I watched this video, I immediately ran to my bathroom mirror and had this look down in less than 10 minutes. I just worked with a brown eyeshadow quad and eyeshadow brushes that I had on hand in shades similar to those in the tutorial. It’s the perfect smokey eyed look seen on celebrities on and off the red carpet.
