Hello, my name is Michelle Brione, I'm a celebrity makeup artist and beauty expert. And today, I'm going to tell you the things you need to get a smoky eye. Now, as you well know the smoky eye is a very sought after look in trend right now. So what you want to do is, you want to prime your eye first with an eye primer. And you just kind of want to go ahead and put it all over on the eye from the lower lid from, to the top of below the brow bone. Once you've done that, you want to pick your shades of shadow that you're going to use. And I normally suggest three shadows. You want to go from a light to a medium to a dark. Because that's going to give you the transition that you need, and the layering that you're going to need to crate the smoky eye. Once you've layered your shadows, you want to go in and you want to kind of just do a cat eye right above the eyelid. And you can use a kohl liner, you can use a shadow or you can use whatever you prefer. And then, once you've done your little cat eye, you want to go underneath the eyelid. And you also want to go ahead and create a smoky eye underneath by either applying a kohl liner or a dark shadow or both. Once you've done that, you want to take your pencil brush and you want to blend it out and also blend it in. So that it gives it a really nice soft, smooth look. Once you've applied your shadow underneath your eye, then what you want to do is, you want to go right below the brow bone and add a highlighter. So that would make the appearance of your eye pop even more and give it more definition. Next, it's optional, you can add fake lashes or you can apply a volumizing mascara. And that should complete your look.
