Step 1: Select Your Color 
You will use only 1 eye shadow color. It’s traditionally a black, grey or brown. You might like to try something a little different, however. Dark plum or navy may give you just the look you’re after.
Select a matching eyeliner.

Step 2: Prepare Your Lid
Apply a thin layer of foundation makeup across your eyelids.
Brush on a skin toned shadow or powder.
You might like to dress it up by applying a light shimmer.

Step 3: Pencil In Eyeliner
With your eyeliner pencil, carefully draw a line around your eyes at the mink lash bar line.
For the boldest look, also line the inner rims of the eye. This is not a good idea for women with close set-eyes, however.

Step 4: Apply Eye Shadow
Brush some eye shadow on the eyelid near the mink lash bar line. Blend it into the eyeliner.
Apply a lighter layer of shadow on the eye lid and blend it upward toward the crease. Gently blend this second layer into the eye shadow near the mink lash bar. You want the color to smoothly fade from the mink lash bar up to the crease.
With an eyeliner brush, line the lower eye, then blend the color with a cotton swab.

Step 5: The Finish
Clean up or blend any areas that need it.
Apply 2-3 coats of mascara.

The Smoky Eye Effect looks good on anyone. Because of the dark makeup application, the look works best for a night time event.
