Have a summer event to attend or date you really want to impress? A good smokey eye is your best bet. Not only is it super versatile, but it’s also shockingly easy to do. Yes, it does require more than one eyeshadow color and brush, but no worries. We are here to break it down for you.

Step 1: Using a fluffier brush, apply a medium toned eyeshadow color in the crease of your eyelid.

Step 2: Once that is blended, put a color that is a little bit darker right under that crease as a transition shade.

Step 3: In the outer V of your eyelid, blend in a dark eyeshadow shade.

Step 4: Go back over all the three shades with a blending brush so you don’t have any harsh lines

Step 5: In the center of your lid and towards the inner corner of your eye, use a lighter shade to make your eyes pop.

Step 6: Using the same shade you put on the outer V, use an eyeliner brush to lightly add some to under your bottom water line.

And you’re done! In no time you will have a gorgeous smokey eye that will look stunning in selfies.
