Smokey Eyes Information and Tutorial


One of the most common questions about the smokey eye look is, how do I choose my color scheme?  

Well the style of smokey eye you want and the colors really depend on you.  The most common are the Arabian styles and purple/blacks in colors.  But the term smokey eye doesn't mean dark colors necessarily.  It means to smoke out the style or take it from light to dark.  And with that you can use any color you want!

I have seen some of the most beautiful smokey eye looks done in golds, greens, blues, purples and even white to grey.  It is about what look you are trying to achieve.  Obviously, like with any eye makeup, you want to compliment your eye color.  So green eyes,would be best with purples.  Blue eyes, your browns, Brown eyes, you lucky girls you, can use ANY color, and so on.  The most important thing about the smokey look, or any eye look really, isn't color or style, it's tools.  Your brushes and makeup should be top notch.

Below I am going to link to a tutorial done with Exotic Arab eyes that you can see being done by MissChievous.  I subscribe to her YouTube channel because she is pretty amazing at teaching!  I hope you enjoy!
