This Smoky Eye Look takes only five minutes. Here’s the proof

Byrdie loves a smoky look, especially when it’s done by makeup artists such as Patrick Ta or Katie Jane Hughes. It might not be something we wear every day since we prefer natural makeup, but that does not diminish our love for it.

The smoky eyes are a timeless classic. It can be worn for any occasion and can be done in black, gray or brown. Or you can mix it up with color. It’s a stunning look that will impress everyone, so it’s worth learning. We know it can be not easy, so we decided to break it down into seven easy steps. You’ll be a pro if you follow the steps and practice.

One: Prime

It is very important to prime your eyes before you do anything else. This is especially important if your skin is oily. It will prevent your shadow from becoming a slippery mess.

Two: Apply a base shadow

It would help if you started with a neutral shade for a base. Hughes says, “I’m using the most bone-colored color and tagging it on.” This is done to brighten the lid and neutralize its texture. This will help make the rest easier and give your high voltage hues something to stick to.

Three: Smoke it Out.

After establishing your base, apply a darker color to the corners and creases of your eyes. Hughes prefers a warm, taupe appearance, but you can also use a darker shade that is more charcoal-toned to give your eyes definition. It all comes down to the look you want.

Blending Shadow

Once you have your definition and base shadows in a spot you like, you can go in with your main shade, which could be either black or bronze or electric or purple. Blend the shade on your lid until you don’t see any harsh lines. For extra intensity, you can trace some of the shade on your lower lash line to bring the look together. Blend until it is seamless. You can blend it outwards and upwards in an outer corner, where you normally do a wing.

It might not be something we wear every day since we prefer natural makeup, but that does not diminish our love for it.
