Oifae As an alternative to the traditional dark brown or black, try deep purple, plum, dark blue, dark green or copper to soften the look and enhance your eye colour.
The first step is to prepare your lid. Dab on an eyeshadow primer as this will keep your eyelids oil free and prevent the eyeshadow melting into your eyelid crease.
Take the lighter base eyeshadow and sweep over your lids from your lash line to your browbone. Be quite generous with this as it will make it easier to add the darker colour.
Once the base has been applied, you are ready for the eyeliner.
Using black, charcoal or a dark colour eye pencil that complements your eyeshadow, draw a line above the upper lash line making the line thicker in the middle, then blend in gently to soften the edge of the line.
Use a liner brush and go over the liner with your darker eyeshadow, stretching across the lid just short of where your eyeliner ends. Soften, blend and smudge to eliminate harsh lines.
Now, gradually blend in a little of the darker colour into the lighter base, Starting from your lash line, brush upwards to just below the crease. For best results, build it up slowly rather than adding too much dark at once..
For the lower lash line you will need to use a lighter eyeliner. Apply a small amount of shadow to get the smudge effect.
Finish with two coats of volumizing mascara. Get the wand as close to the roots as possible, then gently blink as you draw it through your lashes. Use an eyelash curler for more dramatic results.
Remember to keep your lips neutral to give smoky eyes their real impact.
