A” Smokey Eye” doesn’t necessarily mean that you have to use dark shades only. You can create a” smoky eye “with greens, purples, and even naturals with darker accent colors

Follow these simple steps and practice..practice..practice…


Step 1. Apply a creamy concealer over entire eye area to conceal any uneven skin tones and create a smooth canvas which help shadow last longer. Cinema Secrets Concealer Palette from CRC Cosmetics.

Step 2. Apply a pressed powder lightly over lid to prevent creasing. Ben Nye 8-color Bella Poudre Palette/CRC Cosmetics.
