Nail the Smoky Eye
1. Create a Base
Everyone hates smudgy makeup, so put on a base coat of primer before you add any eyeshadow. This Stay All Day Liquid Eye Primer from Stila is a cult classic and is guaranteed to keep your makeup looking great until its time to take it off. At only £18.35 (was £22.60) the Stila Magnificent Metals package also includes an eyeshadow and glitter pigment to add an extra flair to any night look.
2. Add the colour
A darker shadow in a brown or grey should now be applied to the lid from your crease to the lashes and lower lash line. Chantecaille have the perfect set of three pots as part of their Mermaid Matte Eye Shadow set which are incredibly pigmented and enriched with Silk Tree extract. Choose the Chantecaille Three Mermaid Matte Eye Shadow set to start your collection! Save 15% on this great set for £68 (was £80).
If you prefer more choice or want to have a few more colours to practice with, then the Urban Decay Smoky Eyeshadow Palette is now £48.71 (was £51.55) and comes with its own double ended brush.
3. Blend Blend Blend
However, many colours you’ve added to your look, perhaps the most important part of creating a successful, Instagram worthy eye makeup look is to blend! By using the Inka Blending Brush, you’ll soften any harsh lines along your crease and bottom lash line. Inka are known for their cruelty-free beauty products and this super soft makeup blending brush is no exception. Add this makeup bag essential to your collection for only £13.20 (was £16.50).
4. Time to line
The 00s might have been an era of too much eyeliner, but when it comes to the smoky eye look it is a key component. Use a twist or pencil liner on your top and bottom waterline to tighten your eye. The eye-twist from Sisley is a three in one product that combines shadow, liner and pencil and has been enriched with green tea, white lily and camellia. What’s not to love? Choose the Sisley Paris Phyto-Eye Twist in black at only £26.83 (was £35.31).
5. Bat those lashes
No makeup look is complete with mascara! Your lashes will flutter with long, dark, bat worthy lashes. Put your hands (or lashes) together for the Elizabeth Arden Standing Ovation Mascara with volumizing technology that reduces smudging and flakiness. Reduced to £15 (was £22) this is an offer that isn’t to be missed.
