Több réteg szempillaspirált érdemes felvinni, ha füstös szemeket készítünk. Ilyenkor érdemes áttörölni a spirál keféjét egy zsebkendővel, így a régi, összegyűjt festéket eltávolítjuk, újat vesz fel, így kevesebb az esélye annak, hogy csomósodni fog a festék a szempillákon.
1. Start with the eyes
It will save you some time because you don’t need to re-touch your foundation under your eyes if you don’t even have foundation there 🙂
2. Use a primer
Primers are great, prevent creasing and will make your eyes makeup last longer. If you have oily lids or hooded eyes, these products are gonna be your best friends but when it comes to smokey eyes, I’d say that everyone should use them. A good primer gives a smooth, even base, which is necessary for all the blending that you’ll have to do.
3. Invest in good quality products
Just think about it: smokey eyes are always “trendy” and will look great on anyone, you’ll going to use the eyeshadows and the eyeliner a LOT! Find your perfect eyeshadow shades and a good eyeliner (pencil, gel etc) that is easy to blend, pigmented and long lasting. With the word “invest” I mean time, because you can find good but inexpensive products, but it takes some research!
4. Blend, blend, blend!
You don’t want obvious lines where one color has just ended and an other has begun. Find some good brushes that you like and do the blending job “instead of” you 🙂 Remember, the classic MAC 217 and its dupes are very handy!
Apply several layers of mascara to define them! When I know I’ll need lots of mascara, then I always clean the wand first with a clean tissue because the application will be nicer and there won’t be clumps either, at least the chance is minimal.
+1. Don’t forget the rest of your face
Smokey eyes are screaming for perfect skin so let’s use a foundation that provides at least medium coverage. Add some bronzer to define your face and a little blush and you can’t go wrong with nice, nude lips but use any colour you want, depending on the occasion 🙂
