the dark and smoky eye

ELLE (UK) - - Beauty -

The true strength of the smoky eye doesn’t lie in recre­at­ing that per­fect pre­ci­sion you’ve seen on In­sta­gram. All eyes are dif­fer­ent, so get to un­der­stand yours and adapt your tech­nique ac­cord­ingly – think about colour, tex­ture and shape. If black feels too harsh, opt for mocha, chest­nut or con­crete tones. If you’re wor­ry­ing about

creas­ing, use an eye primer to smooth out lines and stick to long-wear pow­ders and creams. Shape is key: look straight ahead in the mir­ror – the top of your smoke should sit just above the crease of your eye­lid, but not too close to the brow, and should frame and de­fine your nat­u­ral socket line. Re­mem­ber: dif­fused edges are

more flat­ter­ing, and a wing shape is lift­ing, too.
