Hi everyone and welcome back to my blog.So today I want to share with you how to create the super simple beginner friendly smokey eye that takes the less than 2 minutes to create.Because whenever I have clients that want to learn how to create a smokey eye at home but don’t feel like they have either the time the tools or the skills to do it.This is normally the look that I tend to go for just because it is so simple and time efficient so let’s just get started.
So we’re going to be using four eyeshadows ranging from lightest to darkest.And I’m only going to use one eye shadow brush for the whole look to keep it extra simple.And the one I’m using is the base shadow brush which I highly recommend to anyone to starting out says it’s great for both packing or shadow as well as blending it out and it’s really affordable too.
So first you’re going to want to take your lightest highlighting shade and place that all over your eyelid mainly focusing on the inner 2/3 and then put some on your brow bone and the inner corner of your eye for a nice highlight.
Then take your medium shadow and then that all through your crease to create a soft trasnsition.
Then you want to place your darker shadow on the outer third of your eyelid and then lightly blend it up into your crease.
Taking the same color just place that on the outer half of your bottom lash line just to tie the eye together and get a nice all-around smoky effect.
Then take a coal eye pencil and trace that all along your upper lash line making the line a little bit thicker on the outer corner just to give the eye a bit of lift.I’m using a black pencil for this but it works just as well with the brown or gray if you prefer that.I also place it on my waterline for a more intense look.
Then taking your darkest shadow you want to place that on top of the kohl pencil just on the outer corner and smoke it out a bit so it’s not as harsh.I’m also taking it up a little bit into the crease and that is it for the eye shadow.
So then just put on a couple of coats of your favorite mascara and then you are good to go simple set.
