Smoky eyes give an attractive look to the eyes. Smoking out your eyes has become a popular eye makeup procedure because it is simple to create and benefits all types of faces.Smokey eye look set a dramatic tone and draws attention to your eyes.

For those ladies who often use fake eyelashes, the smoky eye look is a must as it helps to camouflage the stick on part of the fake eyelashes. Below are some simple steps to create smoky eye look.

Before you learn how to apply smoky eye makeup, educate yourself about the various cosmetic brands, products and the innumerable shades and hues of eye shadows and pencils that are available in the market these days.

It is best to make pairs of light colors on the base and then dark colors on top. For instance a soft gold as the base with dark purple can be an excellent combination and so are the combinations champagne base with blue or peach shade base and a dark bottle green upper shade.

Make sure that the eyebase is of good quality, one that does not melt and cakes into the creases of your eyelids.

With your eyeliner pencil, carefully draw a line around your eyes at the lash line.
For the boldest look, also line the inner rims of the eye. This is not a good idea for women with close set-eyes, however.

Brush the darker eyeshadow color from your eyelid to midway upwards. Remember to blend the colors nicely. The darker the color, the more dramatic and smokier the effect is.Use a thin line brush to brush on the darkest color onto the entire eyelid area.

Ensure that the colors are blended nicely. They should look gradual instead of abrupt.Apply eyeliner pencil to the bottom lash line and smudge using your finger or a sponge. You can also achieve this by using an eyeshadow and smudging that after applying.

The next think you need to do is apply eyeliner. It is not necessary that you apply the traditional black. You can also choose between brown or smoky gray shades too. Apply it in the thickness that you like above your upper lash border.

Check whether the two eyes are evenly done and make adjustments. The good thing with smoky eyes is that you can never go wrong with over doing it. A well blended dark shade will have the right smoky effect when properly blended. You can always add a darker shade if you want more impressions.

The last thing you need to do is apply mascara lusciously. This will give your eyes the sexiest look that you ever wanted.

The smoky eye should be balanced with nude lips. Or, go for a color that is as close to your natural lip color as possible. A light gloss is OK but anything too shiny (or too matte) will take attention from your eyes. A word of wisdom -- don't ever try dark eyes and dark lips which gives an overmade appearance.

Step back from the mirror and admire your gorgeous smokey eyes!With a little practice you will be able to do this in no time at all and can leave the house with sexy smokey eyes any time you like. Perfect!
