Video: How to Easily Create a Smoky Eye
Avon’s celebrity makeup artist Paul Innis shows you how to take the panic and mistakes out of creating a smoky eye.
Who doesn’t love the smoky eye? It can be sexy and demure at the same time. Creating one, however, can make you break out in a sweat. If you do one thing wrong….eek, you have to start all over again. Celebrity makeup artist Paul Innis, who’s worked all over the world and has helped famous faces like Zoe Saldana, Maggie Rizer and Alek Wek look even more gorgeous, comes to the rescue!
Now Paul is working with Avon to help create makeup for deeper skin tones as well as show us how to quickly look fantastic. In the below video he shows you how to easily create a smoky eye and the “Diva smoky eye” too.
Here’s how to do it at home:
1. Using a foundation brush, gently apply foundation on your eyelids.
2. Eyeshadow: first apply the lighter shade, then the darker shade on your eyelids.
3. Apply eyeliner at the base of the lash. Don’t worry about making a straight line because you’re going to smudge it.
4. Mascara should be two shades darker.
“See” how easy it is?! (Wink, wink!)
