  • It's hard to explain through words. Go to YouTube and type in "how to create smokey eyes"...there are tons of video tutorials that will help a lot more than any of us can here =]

  • okay as a make up connisuer lmao i have a great explaination use a black shadow on only the lid up to the crease of your eye apply a grey shadow in the crease and blend with a contouring brush til desired affect always use a black eyeliner as this just finishes the effect good luck and remember practice makes better :) using a brow highlighter under your brow really does wonders as well but is not neccessary

  • use a cream shadow across the entire eye lid (kinda like a foundation) the use a dark brown lightly across the eye lid bone (not on the lid or the eyebrow part) & lightly in the crease...lightly. then slowly apply a little darker brown to the outter corners so the shadow is lighter and gradulally gets darker as it get to the end corner of the eye. then i apply a dark blue lightly over the dark brown....only in the corner of the outer part of the eye. work with it so it smokes up. you want it to be lighter to darker. i also use just a hint of it under the lashes and top with a touch of black eyeliner, just under the corner of the lashes...your eye shape has a lot to do with the application.. for bigger eye look you want the darker colors on the outside corner of the eyes. if your eyes are set close together then you want to reverse the colors.fix you eye shadow to the shape & position of your eyes
