5 steps to a perfect smokey eye

5 steps to a perfect smokey eye.

We’ve all been there: You get a last-minute invite to an event and you’re forced to get yourself into an appropriate look in few minutes. But other than our outfit being on point, thanks to the little black dress we keep in our closets for moments like these, we also need proper makeup to complete the look. See our quick guide on how to get the perfect smoky eye in five easy steps.

Step 1: Get an even base

Starting with a primer is the best way to create an even base and extend the life of your look.

Step 2: Highlight the brow bone

Apply your favourite highlighter from the inner corners to the brow bone to brighten up the dark colour shadows.

Step 3: Apply the dark shadow

Apply dark shadow over the entire lid using your finger, but don’t worry about being too precise.

Step 4: Blend with brush

Use a fluffy makeup brush to blend the edges along the crease.

Step 5: Add final touches

Finish with a black cat eyeliner and mascara on your lashes.
