Smokey eye turtorial

HOW TO: SMOKEY EYE

1.Always prime your lid with a eye primer to keep colors from creasing and it also intensifies the colors. You can use Too Faced shadow insurance, Urban Decay primer potion, Benefit stay dont stray, to name a few. Or any suitable primer.
2.Pick out your colors, I am using UD NAKED palette
3. Take a crease smudge brush(mine is coastal scents)
and dip it into the black called creep.
3.Next your going to want to start at your outter V and go up and out buffing the color out towards your upper eye.
4. Next you want to take the next color with a flat shader brush to shade the lid.
I used color toasted to put on the center of the eyelid.
5. Then the inner corner of the eye gets a light color near the teat duct to make the eyes pop.
I am using Virgin.
6. Last, your going to take a big fluffy shader brush for the highlight. Putting it below the brow bone make for a more open eye look. Again I used Virgin.
Just be sure to blend it into the black so there are no harsh lines.

The finishing look.
