A 6-Step Tutorial For Standout Smokey Eyes

Here’s your ticket to stealing the spotlight!

Getting ready for a party tonight? There’s no need to overthink your look in the beauty department. When it comes to being a showstopper, a fierce-looking smokey eye makeup is your ticket to stealing the spotlight! It’s a no-fail trick that you can do in six easy steps.

Here, we show you how:

Step 1: Line and fill.

Starting from the outer corner of your eye, draw a diagonal line extending upwards. Connect the wing tip to the inner corner of your eye, and then thoroughly fill it in using black eyeliner.

Step 2: Create a smokey effect.

Playing with a shade similar to your liner, dab a small amount of dark gray eyeshadow on your lids using a soft fluff brush. Blend the edges carefully before the liner sets. This should leave you with a soft smokey finish.

Step 3: Define your lower lash line.

Starting from the corner of your eye going outward, draw on your lower lash line. This will give you a stronger, fiercer look.

Step 4: Apply mascara.

If you want brighter peepers, skipping the mascara is a big no-no. After curling your lashes, coat them with a clump-free waterproof mascara that won’t leave smudges and dark circles around your eyes. Since we’re going for longer, bolder lashes, try Revlon Lash Potion Volume + Length Mascara.

Step 5: Apply glittery eyeshadow.

Transform your makeup into a party-ready look with a hint of sparkles from the glittery side of Revlon PhotoReady Eye Art Lid + Line + Lash. Bring life into your dolled up doe eyes, and apply glittery eyeshadow to instantly up your smize game.

Step 6: Highlight your eyes using a concealer or stick foundation.

Just a few finishing touches and you’re done! Using Revlon PhotoReady Insta-Fix, clean up the smudges, conceal your dark circles, and highlight your brow bone. This 3-in-1 beauty product will do the trick and make sure your makeup stays put. You don't want to end up looking like a raccoon in the middle of the night, do you?

StyleBible Tip: Finish off your look with a swipe of nude lippie! Let your fierce eye makeup take center stage. Remember that the focus should be on your peepers, so keep everything else low-key.
