Few Tips To Help You Master The Day Smoky Eye Makeup
Even though it’s very easy to become an expert with these tutorials, the following tricks and tips should be up your sleeve. With these, you can easily avoid any goof ups and possible mess that can arise:
- Before adding eyeliner to your lash line, ensure that you have completely applied your eye color as they may tend to fall out. Adding a layer of translucent powder underneath your eye can be a smart trick as it can catch any color which actually does fall. Once finished, you can brush off the powder.
- Any extra eye-shadow outside the eye makeup should be removed using a Q-tip and eye makeup remover.
- It’s always recommended to use a mascara shield before applying mascara to prevent any transfer of it to the done eye makeup.
- Never use blue for smokey eyes. It creates a very smudged and unattractive finish.
- Grey can be used blindly for both day and night smoky eye makeups. It always looks chic and glamorous.
- Always pair your smokey eyes with a blush-on which are strategically placed. You can never go wrong!
