Everyone will stare enviously at those beautiful smokey eyes on the covers of glossy bridal magazines. It’s an amazing look of makeup style, but a very hard one to duplicate without the right guidance. The next guide will take the stress out of the process, taking you step-by-step through the secrets of the astonishing smokey eye look.
How to make this look in order to work so well? The biggest aspect is the careful, delicate blending from light colors into dark. One ordinary mistake is to employ dark browns and black, neither of which is necessary. Alternatively, you may consider using a peach base with a green hue and gold brown, champagne or deep purple bases with a bright blue hue.
In order to properly move forward, you will need some elements like makeup brushes, eyeliner, eye primer, mascara and two eye shadows: one lighter, one darker. The second step is you can start by applying the lighter eye shadow shade or mineral concealer to the under-eye area, then all across the top eyelid. It is important for you to avoid any oil products on your eyelids, as they run the risk of melting. The second step will depend on your eye shadow color. You will be able to line your eyes with blue, purple or deep green eyeliner. In the meantime, if you have decided to use grey, brown or standard black, you can use the same liner color by drawing lines a little more thickly toward the middle of the eye.
The third step is when the upper eyelid has done; it’s time to work on the bottom eyelashes. The secret: simply use an eyeliner pencil, and then smudge it by gliding your finger over the top. Once this is done, add a light, shimmering eye shadow and blend it into the existing darker color. The fourth step can be daunting to some, but rest assured this is not a fine art, and a little practice will go a long way. You can use an eye shadow brush to blend in the darker color from your eyelash line. You could also use a q-tip cotton bud; smudge brush or sponge-tip applicator to smudge directly over the penciled area.
Finally with this done, the last stage is to curl your eyelashes, then add several coatings of mascara to really improve the look. As an added bonus, try applying a natural shade of blush to your cheeks, adding color to your complexion to counter the darker eyes and help your natural, radiant beauty. When everything is all done, you are now set to walk down the aisle with those adorable smokey eyes wedding wakeup.
