You don’t need to have certain branded eye shadows to create the perfect smokey eye, you can simply use the ones you have in your makeup bag.
Chose a light and a dark shade out of your eye shadows. Use more warm colours for sophistication, or use darker colours for a more edgier look.
Use the light shade as a base, applying over the full lid, up to the brow.
Take the darker shade along the upper lash line, blending into the crease and sweep up, and out to emphasise the smokiness of the eye.
With the lighter colour again, or a different lighter shade, highlight the inner corner of the eye, blending in well.
If you have any, then use a shimmering eyeshadow dust, apply over the lid and flick outwards, emphasising the outer corner of the eye.
Add drama with a bit of eye liner. Applying to the inner part of the eye will create more of an edgier look. Apply 2 coats of mascara.
