One Eyeshadow Smokey Eyes

Probably the most common eye makeup style is smokey eyes. There are different ways though to achieve smokey eyes and it may seem super easy to do one but it may require some skills and techniques, too.

Beginners always say they end up having raccoon eyes whenever they try to do smokey eyes and some say it takes a lot of time for them to do it. So, I decided to do a smokey eyes using only one eyeshadow which might help especially when you're in a hurry. This eye makeup look can be paired with any lip color so it's also perfect for any occasion. All you need is a good blending brush and a brown eyeshadow. You can choose medium brown or dark brown.

Achieving a perfect smokey eyes is all about blending! If you blend with a heavy hand, you'll end up having blotchy eye makeup and harsh edges. If you over blend, the eyeshadow wouldn't be noticeable. The best way is to blend your eyeshadow using the tip of the blending brush with a very light hand.

To spice up the eye makeup, you can line your lower lash lines with the same eye shadow, tightline your eyes with a black eye pencil and then apply generous coats of mascara!

Watch my video tutorial to see how I did it:

Stay awesome and accomplish your mission!
