It doesn’t need to be perfect
When it comes to smokey eyes, you need to keep your look effortless. If you’re using a liner to achieve to this look, it doesn’t have to perfect and straight, as it’s going to get smudged later.
Go for fewer shades
If you want to nail the perfect smokey eye, don’t experiment with too many shades. You can start by using just one colour, which is easier to copy and looks alluring as well. If you’re using a shadow, you can top it up with a liner to intensify the look further.
Pick the right liner
When it comes to eyeliners, choose the right one which gives you the perfect finish. Go for softer gel liners, which can be blended easily. Instead of pencil liners, you can go for twist-up liners. As they have a standard tip size, you will get the same thickness every time.
Experiment with different colours
Black and greys are the most used colours for smokey eyes. You can explore more colours and see what complements your skin tone. From earthy shades to purples and greens, there’s a lot to experiment.
Give a shimmer touch
If you think your smokey eye look is making your eyes look smaller, you can give it a pop of shimmer. You can add a bit of shimmer on the centre of the eyelids for a brightening effect.
