DIY: The (Upgraded) Smokey Eye For NYE


Getting the perfect smokey eye is easier than you think. But if you’re still not convinced, follow these simple steps.

  1. Use an eyeshadow primer all over your lid to help the shadow stay on.
  2. Apply the lightest shadow in the inner corner of the eye.
  3. Use your preferred shade over the lid. Pat it on for more intense color.
  4. In the crease of your eye, deposit the darkest color using a fluffy brush. Blend back and forth using windshield wiper like motions.
  5. Use a light color (a highlight) and a fluffy brush under your brow bone and blend it down into the dark crease color
