The classic smokey eye never goes out of style and suits everyone. For my eyeshadow, I'm using the Jaclyn Hill Morphe Palette. The same should be done for the color that has been placed underneath your eyes. Apply a dab of metallic highlighter to the inside corner of your eye as well as right on the brow bone. Fill the remaining area with some shimmery gold eyeshadow.
The first thing that you need to do is put a light brown color on your eyelids. Whenever you need to apply more of your dark shadow, start at this point and work inwards or upwards. Next comes the crease of the eyes. End it in a tapered line slightly before the edge of your eyeshadow (where the darkest part meets your un-shadowed skin).
Classic smokey eyes are extremely dark and involve colors like gray, black, and dark brown. Apply the chestnut color right into the crease in a windshield-wiper motion. Use your finger or a brush to apply an even, mattifying primer that will help set the shadows to come.
The deep natural color of brown eyes permits you to wear bright colors for a playful look and even the darker tones that other women have to pass on. The key is to avoid errors in highlighting with the wrong hues or contouring with tones that are too strong and overpower your natural brown eyes.
Using a thin brush, deposit the brown shadow on the inner as well as the outer corner of your eye. Using your black eyeliner pencil, draw along your crease line and upper lashline, connecting the outer corners as shown in the first step. Using a brown eyeliner pencil, draw a semi-circle on the crease of your upper eyelid, filling in only the outer corner.
Now you can apply your liner and lashes. Using either liquid eyeliner or a pencil, draw solid lines all around the eyes. Makeup Revolution's Ultra eyeshadow palette in ‘Mermaids Forever' can be used to achieve this look. Begin at the outside corner of your eyes, and sweep in a ‘C' shape from the about halfway inwards (from the outside of your face) on the lash line, back up and around to about halfway inwards on the crease of your eyelid.
Blend the color out properly with a brush. Now use a brown eyebrow pencil to draw a line that traces the crease of your eye (you'll feel it as the point right on the eyeball). Next, pat on a light shade of gold, covering the entire eyelid but stopping right underneath the crease.
For more of a cool-toned, brown smokey eye, opt for shades of brown that have a taupe or grey undertone to them. You can use a bold black liquid liner for a dramatic look or, for a softer look, a deep brown pencil is also a great match. Take another very small, soft brush and gently blend the two eyeshadow liner colors together under your lashline.
Avoid using more than two coats of mascara so that you don't create unsightly clumps and lumps in your lashes. Be sure to blend it at the inside corners with your highlighter, so that there isn't a harsh divide between the two colors. Use a smudging brush to create a soft, smokey effect on the lower lashline.
Using the same eyeshadow, define your lower lashline. With a black kohl pencil, define your lower waterline and lashline, tracing a wing with the pencil. She shows you where to put each shade and even how to perfect the winged eyeliner technique. There are endless ways to do a bang-up job with your eyes and we have some of the best eye makeup looks lined up for you.
Using a flat brush, smoothen the lines out evenly and classic makeup tutorial for brown eyes blend the color from the center of your eye towards the outer corners. Choose a sparkly metallic finish for a night out or, for a more subdued daytime look, olive green matte eyeshadow is just stunning. Now, I'm going to move onto the shade called Buns, and with this color I am going to blend it into my crease as well, over the other colors.
Sweep a little of your dark shadow under your eye onto your lower lid. At the center, apply a nice shimmery gold eyeshadow (one that is highly pigmented is preferable). For some added shine, blend some silver eye shadow across your entire eyelid. To define your upper and lower lashline, use a deep brown or a black eyeshadow and apply this with an angular brush along the lashline.
