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.
Step 4: Add
Apply shadow on the lower lash line.
Step 5: Finish Lashes
Use an eyelash curler and apply mascara.
Step 6: Embellish
Use a metallic highlighter on the inner corners and blend over the entire lid.
