Easy Smokey Eye Tutorial

Creating a flawless smokey eye is a feat all make-up lovers have been striving to attain. Whether worn for a daytime or nighttime vibe, this look is universally flattering. How does this gorgeous look take place? We chimed into our friends at Elle Magazine, who teamed up with celebrity makeup artist Gita Bass, to teach us in six steps how to finally achieve this sultry look.

Step 1: Primer

Apply eye primer to the lids

GITA SAYS: "If you're doing a lot of shadows, primer really helps for it to blend. It also gets rid of any discoloration on the lid."

Step 2: Create a base

Apply cream shadow from the lash line to the crease.

Step 3: Line

Smudge black liner on the top and bottom lash lines.

GITA SAYS: "I don't care if the line is perfect because I blend it well with a smudger brush to get that really smoky effect."

Step 4: Add

Apply shadow on the lower lash line.

Step 5: Finish Lashes

Use an eyelash curler and apply mascara.

GITA SAYS: "I do three layers of mascara. When applying mascara, wiggle the wand at the base, then pull up. Use an eyelash comb to separate the lashes."

Step 6: Embellish

Use a metallic highlighter on the inner corners and blend over the entire lid.

GITA SAYS: "It adds some sparkle to the eye, and makes the eye look wider and a little more open."
