The classic smokey eye never goes out of style and suits everyone. With a black eyeliner pencil, color your eyelid leaving a gap at the center, as seen in the image. I've picked up a smaller, round eyeshadow brush for this shade, because I don't want this color in as much area as the previous colors. Follow this up with a lighter color and apply it all over the eyelid, ending right beneath the crease.
Keep the rest of your makeup to the very minimum as this is a pretty heavy smokey eye. Next, follow the line back over the crease of the eye towards the inner corner. The intensity of natural brown eyes varies from person to person, so it's important to tell which colors look outstanding on you and which ones make your eyes look dull.
Apply the copper eyeshadow on your crease and the rest of the eyelid. You should use a dark brown, a nude and a white eyeshadow and make sure you blend it all well. Fill in your crease with a subtle hint of the soft brown eyeshadow and blend this towards the outer corner of your eye.
You don't have to be a makeup pro or a beauty guru to achieve big, bold and gorgeous eyes. Use a pale lilac color and run the brush all along the crease of the eyes, taking care to blend the edge of gold into the soft lilac color. Almond brown and cream colors are always a good natural looking smoky eye look for green eyes.
Start by applying a nude shade of eyeshadow over your eyelid. Detect flecks of color in your eyes that seem lighter and match them to your base color. Use Eyestudio® Master Precise® Liquid Liner to line the lash line and apply a small flick at the end for a natural cat-eye.
Define your lower lashline with an angular brush using both green and black eyeshadow. Line your lower waterline and lashline with a black eyeliner pencil. Use your liquid eyeliner to line your upper lashline along the traced area for more precision. Line your lower waterline using a black eyeliner pencil.
Apply makeup for WOC highlighter on the apples of your cheeks and under the arch of your eyebrows to create a healthy, natural-looking glow. Apply gold eyeshadow towards the inner corner of your eyelid. Use a primer and cover your eyelid with a nude eyeshadow. Step 7: To add more drama to your look, apply black gel eyeliner to the waterline (Inglot AMC Gel Eyeliner #77).
Using a flat brush, smoothen the lines out evenly and blend the color from the center of your eye towards the outer corners. Choose a sparkly metallic finish for a night out or, for a more subdued daytime look, olive green matte eyeshadow is just stunning. Now, I'm going to move onto the shade called Buns, and with this color I am going to blend it into my crease as well, over the other colors.
Use a chunky eyeliner pencil to draw a thick line across your upper lash line only. Then, use your brush to blend the colors together. Use the thin brush to enhance your lower lash line with brown and gold. You have the option of using a pencil, cream, or liquid eyeliner, and any will work just fine.
You could also add some winged black eyeliner and a smooth black mascara to create the look you're looking for. Also line the upper lash line, thickening the line into a subtle cat eye shape. Swipe that over your eyes in the crease with a soft round eyeshadow brush.
Be sure to use a concealer and eyeshadow primer to prep your lids before applying the smoky eye. Doing this will help the colors meld together and will get rid of any harsh lines you may have created when applying the different colors of eyeshadow. Apply a tiny layer of the mixing gel to your middle eyelid with a flat shadow brush.
You definitely don't want harsh lines, and you want to make sure all the colors blend together and outward to give a nice finish. Light brown eyes appear either golden or hazel, depending on the flecks of color that make them so striking. Cover your upper eyelid with silver eyeshadow as seen in the image.
