A smokey eye is one of those famous make up looks that makes one appear seductive, especially when they go clubbing at night. If you want to achieve great results all the time, here are some tips that will help you create smokey eyes with any eye shape!
MAKE UP TIPS: HOW TO CREATE SMOKEY EYES FOR DIFFERENT EYE SHAPES
Wide Set Eyes
If you have wide set eyes, your main goal is to make them look narrower. Using a medium to deep shade of eye shadow, apply this by contouring your eyes by starting at the inner corner and sweeping it two thirds of the way across the lid. You may use your fingers or an eye shadow brush for this. Use a really good pencil liner and line the tops of your lashes as well as your lower water line to add some intensity to your look. Use a small eyeshadow brush to smudge the upper part of your eyeliner to create a smokey effect. Apply a small amount of shimmer on the inner corners of your eyes and then finish off with mascara.
If you want to make your eyes look bigger, opt for neutral colored eye shadows, because dramatic shades will just make them look smaller. Use a full set of false eyelashes to make your eyes look bigger. If the lashes are too big, you can adjust it by cutting off the ends. Then line your eyes using some eyeliner and then curl and apply mascara.
Close Set Eyes
To make your eyes appear wider, sweep some shadow from the outer corner of your eye inwards until you have covered about two thirds of your eyelid. This creates the illusion of wider eyes, so avoid putting any color on your inner corner. Apply eyeliner from the middle part of your upper lash line all the way to the end. Finish off with two coats of mascara.
Create contour by sweeping a darker shade at the middle of the eyelid. Using windshield wiper motions, apply the color back and forth from the inner corner of the eye up to the outer corner. This ensures more color at the center of the eyelid, thereby opening up the eyes. Blend out the harshness of the color with an eye shadow brush. Use a liquid eyeliner to deepen the upper lash line. This also opens up the eyes a bit more. Finish off with two coats of mascara.
Deep Set Eyes
Use a subtle contour shade for deep set eyes, because you don’t want to draw attention to it. For an intense eye look, focus more on lining both the upper and lower lash line. Use a small brush to smudge the eyeliner a little bit in order to create some depth. Two coats of mascara will then help seal the deal.
