1. Total black
(8) Smokey eyes are all about blending; take dark brown shadow ... and blend it with the black on the bow. (11) you can use some shimmer under your eyebrows.
Different way to make a smokey eye (a way that I prefer) is to blend with 3 colors: working from dark to light. Here we have: Black, Grey, Light grey
First start with the darkest color on the end of your eye. Make a perfect bow.
In the middle we put grey (or other color). Then we finish up with the lightest color (light grey)... and we blend it from the inner corner to the end (the black).
This is the basic and can be used with other colors!
... get it?
3. Neutral smokey eyes
So now you know the basics. Now you can do this with lighter colors... for an everyday look.
Mostly you use 3 colors... But honestly you can do it with 2 too, just BLEND..
