The Perfect Smokey Eye Using Just A Kohl Pencil

 

The ultimate eye makeup trend all women admire are smokey eyes. While it just looks intimidating and hard to perfect, you can do a fantastic job using just your kohl pencil. Follow this step by step tutorial to create the perfect,easy everyday smokey eye!

Step 1: Tape and Base

If you have oily skin, you want to ensure that your eyelids don’t have any oil on them. Dab off any excess shine using a tissue or apply some loose powder on your lids. Now, use some scotch tape and apply it to the corner of your eyes. Gently stick it from the edge of your under eye and press it down so that it goes upwards to the end of your eyebrow. This will ensure that your smokey eye has the perfect shape.

Step 2: Blend and Shade

Now, apply your kohl pencil on your entire eyelid, focusing on the area just below your crease. Don’t worry if it looks crazy right now, it will look great after you blend it all in. Focus the darkest application of colour on your outer corner. Use your fingers or an eyeshadow blending brush to blend all of that kohl. Blend in outward, upward motions. Apply some more colour to your outer V and blend some more. Repeat this step until you’re happy with the way your eyes look.

Step 3: Line and Define

Now that you’ve perfected your eyes, apply the kohl pencil to your waterline and just below. Use the smudger brush on your kohl pencil to smoke out that under eye liner. Apply some eyeliner to your upper lash line too. While this is entirely optional, you can apply some shimmery eyeshadow to the centre of your eyes. Once you’re happy with the way your eyes look, gently peel off the tape, apply a few coats of mascara. And voila, the perfect smokey cat eyes!   Now wasn’t that easy?
