How to: Smoky Eyes

Here is a great step by step guid on how to get the smoky eyes look.

Too Faced Smoky Eye Kit

1. Apply a dark eyeshadow over your entire eyelid, blending it up and out towards outer edges (hint: a slightly shimmery texture looks sexier and will be easier to blend). For a true 'air-brushed' effect, use a cotton bud to soften hard edges.

2. Using a dark eyeliner pencil, thinly line eyes close to your upper and lower lashes, from the inner eye corner to the outer edge and back again for a smooth finish. For added drama, line the inside of your eyes with a dark pencil in black, grey or brown (if you find these colours too severe, try a dark blue or dark green).

3. Smudge the pencil line and intensify if necessary by repeating step 2. For a slightly "slept in" look, use a smudger brush to soften the line.

4. Curl lashes and apply glossy black mascara, making sure you apply to the inner and outer lashes to really open up your eyes.
