Nothing says “mysterious and alluring” like a pair of smokey eyes giving someone the “come hither” look from across the room. This look can be achieved fairly easily. The “smokey eyes” look is characterized by makeup that emphasizes the eyes using soft lines and blending; usually, darker colors like black, brown, or gray are used, although you can opt to go for a more dramatic kind of smokey eyed look with fun colors like green or even red.
Smokey eye makeup tips proliferate throughout the internet, but all of them pretty much say the same thing: blend blend blend.
Good blending is the key!
The secret to great looking smokey eye makeup application may be in the blending, but another very important smokey eye makeup tip to take to heart is to choose colors that complement your skin tone.
If you have very pale skin, for example, using a strong, all-black color palette for your smokey eyes look can make you look less like a seductive vamp, and more like the walking dead. Likewise, if you have skin with yellow undertones, blue-tinted colors, like lavender, can make your skin appear jaundiced. Try to go for makeup colors that share your skin’s own undertones.
