I used a cream eye shadow as both the base and primary color of this smoky eye look. If you want to know more about the many great reasons to use potted cream eye shadows read How to Make Eye Shadow Last all Day for more makeup tips.
So to recap the three step smoky eye technique:
- Blend a cream shadow from the lash line up to the crease of the eye, and underneath the eye as well
- Smudge a kohl pencil upward from the lash line on to the eyelid, and underneath the eye.
- Add powder shadow on top of everything to finish and “set” the look
Curious about the products I used? The cream eye shadow I featured today in this quick smoky eye was Tough as Taupe by Maybelline. The kohl eye liner that I used was Smolder by MAC and the eye shadow was Strada by Nars.
