Who says you can’t wear in the daytime? Jenna Lani (Instagram @JennaLani) is back, and this time she’s here to demonstrate how you can turn the heat up on the regular with a hot smoky eye.
Here are a few key steps to keep in mind when doing a smoky eye:
- Use a concealer or primer in a light shade. Not only will this prep the skin around the eye, it will also help bring out the color of the eyeshadow even more.
- Keep a cotton bud handy. Cotton buds are great for smudging, softening edges of lines, and correcting little mishaps you might make.
- It’s all about blending. The secret to a great smoky eye is the blending process. Invest in a good blending blush for the right result, like the MAC 217 Blending Brush.
For extra convenience, you can get all sorts of smoky eye palettes that come pre-loaded with all the colors you need for the perfect smoky eye. Here are some of our favorites:
