When feeling blue is beautiful…The Smoky Eye

speedy sultry smoky eye

 

There are many ways to do a smoky eye, but that doesn’t mean you have to take a lot of time to achieve it. Let’s switch up the classic smoky eye and use some color; blue is a great color to accent your brown eyes, blue eyes, or hazel eyes. Using blue eyeshadow or liner will not only make your eye color pop, but it will actually make your eyes seem brighter, as the blue will neutralize the yellow in your eyes.

Applying the blue liner first will give the blue eyeshadow a base to stick to, as well as allow the shadows to pop and last longer. While blending, you want to look for a faded look, for this smoky eye you want to blend no further then the eye socket. Use a shimmery shadow on both top and bottom inner corners this will open the eyes and help break up the darkness of the dark shadows. I choose a golden flesh-tone shadow. To finish the look I used two coats of mascara on top and bottom lashes; you can use false lashes for this look for added drama.
