Smoky Eyes

For the smoky eye look, dark, neutral colors are used. Black eyeliner with gray eye shadow can work well for this look. Start by lining your eyes with a black eye liner pencil. Line both the top and bottom around the natural eye contour. A trick to catch excess shadow is to use concealer under the eyes with a coat of powder that can be brushed away later.
After the liner has been applied, smudge it in the outer edges to soften the line. To further soften the line, apply a thin line of black eye shadow over the eyelid. Then apply a charcoal or neutral brown eye shadow over the lid.  Mascara along with a neutral lip color and blush tops off the look. 


Applying Lip Color

Applying kip color can be challenging. To avoid a cakey look and get optimum results, make sure your lips are moisturized. Using a small amount of concealer or foundation around the outer edges of the lip line will help prevent feathering. Trace the natural line of your lips with a lip liner pencil that has a soft tip. Then using a lip brush to apply the color will help distribute it evenly and allow for the application to be more precise.  Then blot the lips with a tissue and apply a light power to set.  A second power layer can be applied if desired, followed by gloss for a wet look.



Blush can give your face a bit of color and a fresh look. Powder blush can fade not very long after application. To counter this, a second application can be applied. Gently tap a cream based blush into the apples of your cheeks with the pads of your fingers. Layer some powder blush over the top of the cream and blend upwards along the cheek bones for a lasting fresh look.



To get the right amount of powder on your brush, sprinkle some loose powder on a clean surface like a tissue rather than dipping your brush into the container. control spill for an easy cleanup. For days when you want light coverage, used pressed powder without foundation.  Apply with a puff for the most matte layer, and use a brush for a lighter look.
