  • Eyeshadow palette with at least two tones (in classic black and gray or in blue, brown, purple or red tones as desired). You can find out which eyeshadow colors go best with your eye color here.

This is how you apply make-up to smokey eyes

  1. First, dab your eyelids evenly with a cosmetic tissue. With this you absorb fat or moisture that may still be on the eyelids. For better adhesion and to compensate for redness, you can put an eyeshadow base on the lid.
  2. Then apply the lighter shade of eyeshadow to the entire movable lid up to just above the crease.
  3. Then use black eyeliner to draw a line along the upper lash line.
  4. Gently smudge this with a small brush.
  5. With the darker eyeshadow shade (possibly also two tones) you can now emphasize the crease and the outer corner of the eye from the middle of the eyelid.
  6. In order for the eye make-up to look harmonious, the eyeshadow color must be gently blended towards the eyebrow. Now apply the lightest shade of eyeshadow in your palette as a highlighter under the arch of the eyebrows and in the inner corners of the eyes. This opens your gaze and makes your eyes look bigger and even more radiant.
  7. Do you want a dramatic eye look for a party? Then use a black gel eyeliner to draw a gentle line along the lash line from the inside to the outside, which tapers slightly upwards at the outer corner of the eye.
  8. Finally, apply vigorous coverage to the eyelashes and the sexy smokey eyes are ready.

Matching lipstick color

For the everyday look, it is best to use a nude shade, which makes the smokey eyes look more elegant and softer. For a party, you can also choose a bright red color.
