Ballerific Beauty: Perfecting Your Own Smokey Eye (Picture Heavy)

 

There are some great colors that I think compliment winter well. A look that I find to be one of my favorites is the smokey eye. But not always the traditional smokey eye is more than jus the blacks and greys. I love the the caramel brown and tan smokey eye. below are some colors/tools that are  great combos for the smokey eye. I think most of the time the smokey begins to get lost in translation because I hear alot of women say its too dark or its too messy. You can take even a soft brown and create a smokey eye. The key to the perfect smokey eye in my opinion is finding the right blend for you.

Small Round Tip Brush

NYX Jumbo Pencil 'Black Bean'

^^above is some tools i use to create the under your eye and corner crease smoke.^^

^^^^^In the video above I think those are great colors to do a warmer smokey eye look. I see a lot of WOC do the grey/black smokey eye. It works but in my opinion colors that compliment our skin tones work better. I also wouldn't recommend taking your eyeshadow all the way to the brow w/o blending up.^^^^^

 

 

The above palette is a smokey eye palette of COURSE you don't need to use those brushes/applicators provided they are not very helpful. IMO. This palette comes with cards in the inside instruction on how to do the smokey eye. I recommend doing it yourself tho.

 

The Notoriety Quad by M.A.C

This is one of my favorite QUAD's by M.A.C.  I think it has all the perfect colors for the smokey eye.

I like pixiwoo too @goldie petri does some great things as well sometimes he can lose me tho. and @dub I find that the purple and blue smokey eye looks flawless on women with a dark complexion.

I would say try Queen of blendings YouTube but sometimes her colors are over the top, but she is very talented with that brush.
