I have always been a huge fan of the smokey eye. Though being an eyeliner addict, this was the very first time i created a smokey eye without the use of any liquid eyeliner. And i liked it! It has a slightly seductive and mysterious feel to it. As i have brown eyes, i decided to create this look with a gorgeous brown eyeshadow. I started with just layering the shadow on the top of my lids, and below the eyes (all around). Using black eyeshadow, i then layered on top of the brown eyeshadow, on the outer corner of my lids only. Blending the colours together and blending away all hard edges around the whole eye. Lined the upper and lower waterlines of my eyes with black pencil liner, lots of mascara on both the top and bottom lashes, and voila! So simple, you can't afford to give it a miss!
