January 2011 Series: 8th

The easiest smokey eye ever using only 2 eyeshadows.

First, a white base was applied all over from the lid up to the brow & on the lower lashline. Second, a shimmery white was applied as the highlight, in the tearduct area, & on the inner third of the lower lashline. Third, a navy blue shade (which appears as a dark gray in the pics) was applied to the entire lid and crease. This was blended in well using a fluffy blending blush & small, circular motions. The navy blue was brought from the crease, till the highlight by blending it upward. The navy blue was applied to the outer two-thirds of the lower lashline & blended in with the shimmery white. Then, a black eye pencil was applied to the waterline & used to tightline. A matte black liquid eyeliner was applied on the upper lashline & winged slightly. Lastly, a black mascara was applied on the upper & lower lashes.

This simple smokey eye look can be achieved with any colour, for example, by using a black, plum, navy blue, dark gray, forest green, and so on on the lid & crease area. The possibilities are endless. Just make sure you blend well.
