Traditional Smokey Eye

One of the best looks that make-up artist have created is the "Smokey Eye." This look first debut in the late 90's spiraling into a creative make-up artist/amature frenzy in the mid 2000's. Celebrities such as Kim K, Beyonce and Victoria Beckham have sported this eye crazed dark & sultry look.

The Smokey Eye can be dramatic and intense or worn soft & natural, Totally depends on your preference. However, some will agree to disagree that Dark & Sultry is an evening to night time look and soft and natual should be worn as a daytime look. A smokey eye done dramatic totally depends on the person who owns the look. Some consider, dark & sultry smokey eye as dark browns to black eyeshadow with light application, however the same dark brown and black eyeshadows can be done androgynous, again total depends on the person! Other colors such as dark Purples, Blues, Greens, are also considered  dark & Sulty smokey eye as well.

 What I consider a Daytime smokey are browns, taupes, soft greys, very earth tones eyeshadows. For a soft & natural smokey eye, I usually like to apply 2 shadows, one lighter color part one third of the lid, then on the outer v, a darker color, not too dark, but a color that marries the lighter eyeshadow, in other words, a complimentary color. This particular smokey can be done with a wide range of colors, which make it so much fun! Furthermore, this very same look can go from daytime to evening just by darkening the shadows, which is the superwoman time saver for the women on the go!

 I am a true smokey look eye! I truly believe this is a universal make-up look for all ages that "I" see being around for awhile. The smokey look can be worn in sooo many different colors, how can one get bored! Some smokey eyes depends on different eyeshadow finishes, but until you venture into trying different products and finishes you will not know what u like or what works for you!

My Traditional smokey look is an udpp or estee lauder's double wear in ivory lace:
Nyx Jumbo Penci Dark Brown= Blend all over lid up towards crease(sockets)
Nyx Jumbo Pencil Black Bean= Only on lid/ then blend out harsh lines
Coastal Scents 28 Palette Black= Apply to lid then lightly blend(not too much)
Nyx Single Shadow Brown= Blend from where black ends on crease, then soften
Mac Dreammaker= brow bone/ inner corner
Optional: I add a little bit of Spectrum Cosmetics Black radiation(blk with fine gold sparkle) to the lid to let the black pop.

Thanx to all my Bff's 4 stopping by
