How To Create Smoky Eyes

The key to creating a smoky eye is Blending. The color is darkest around your lash line, and continues to fade out to blend in with your natural skin tone.
The first thing you want to do is put some concealer around your eye including the upper lid area all the way up to the brow. This helps create a base that will help the shadow have some staying power.
Using The Italian Badger Crease Brush apply a medium shade of smoky gray to the lid area.
Next using a smaller brush such as the small contour pencil brush using a dark matte violet colored eye shadow apply this into the outer corner and inner corner of the upper lid blending in a circular motion.
Then using a light shimmery pink blend in the middle areas this keeps your eyes looking warm and thoroughly blend make sure you do not take the color up to high.
Repeat these steps on the bottom using the smaller countour pencil brush.
