“HOW TO” Classic Smokey Eye!


Reading time 3 Minutes

A classic smokey eye never goes out of fashion, it is the most widely created eye look of our time. It suits everyone, doesn’t require many products or tools, and it doesn’t require many products or tools, yet it still gives a fulfilled makeup look. 

Our Pro-on-board Saniha Farooq shared her ultimate smokey eye tutorial tips with us, and of course, we’re going to share them with you! 




Firstly, in order to prepare your eyes, apply primer to the eyes so that your eye-shades last longer, and the application is easier. Furthermore, in order to lock the primer and prevent it from creasing, use a translucent powder to set it up.


The next step is to apply the eyeshadow on the crease area. Use a transition color that is one tone darker than the color of your lid. And, in order to add drama to the look, we used a black color shade to the outer corner, as well as the inner corner of the eye. Then, blend it using the transition color to avoid harsh lines and giving it a natural look.


Now comes the main part of the tutorial, which is applying the eyeshade to the lids. We have used a golden eyeshadow as the base color, to intensify the look. Then we used a golden glitter liner on top of that. Lastly, set it up using an eyeshadow brush for a more finished look.


First, for the lower lash line, we used a brown eyeshadow to fill the line and then to make it more prominent we used kohl pencil to finish up the lookup. And then, after applying false lashes, we filled the upper lash line with kohl pencil so that there aren’t any gaps left.


In order to finish up the look, we added a bit of highlighter to the brow bone area, so our look can be more highlighted and prominent. This will make your arch pop out and enhance your overall look as well.
