How To Simple Smokey Eye Tutorial For Beginners

Needless to say, a simple smokey eye is a must in any makeup lovers repertoire. It is essential to be able to work a smokey eye depending on the occasion and your eye color. However, finding the perfect colors to enhance your eye color is not easy, which is why I have put together this guide for pairing the right makeup to your eye color. Here is your how to simple smokey eye tutorial for beginners.

How To Do A Smokey Eye For Blue Eyes

For those of you with blue eyes (like myself), I suggest neutral tones because of the natural light. Soft shades like coral and champagne will catch the glint in the iris without distracting. A purple smokey eye will accentuate your client's blue eyes. To complete this look, we will use a combination of peachy and purple eyeshadows for a bold look that will last all day long.


Step 1:
Before we get started you will first need to apply an eyeshadow primer. If you want your makeup to last, this step is vital. Mary Kay® Eye Primer goes on smoothly and will prevent your purple smokey eye from creasing or smudging.

Step 2:
For the base, pick an eyeshadow in a light matte peach and apply it over your whole lid up to your brow bone. 

Step 3:
Apply a black pencil eyeliner on your top lash line. Use a smaller brush and dark brown eyeshadow to smudge out the eyeliner until it is soft. 

Step 4:
Apply a dark plum eyeshadow with a matte finish over your lid up until your crease. Using a small clean brush, gently blend out toward your brow bone. 

Step 5:
To polish off this look blend both colors on your lower lash line using a brush. This will help to make your eyes look bigger.

Step 6:
Use a cream color highlighter on your brow bone and inner corners of your eyes. To finish this look simply add mascara and brown liner. 


How To Do A Smokey Eye For Green Eyes

A brown smokey eye will accentuate your client's green eyes. To complete this look, we will use a combination of mossy green and warm brown eyeshadows to create an everyday smokey eye look that will last all day long.

How To Do A Smokey Eye For Hazel Eyes

Hazel is a delightful mix of brown and green that works well with metallic gold and olive greens. Using yellow or gold undertones will bring out the lighter flecks in your eyes. Lighter shades of purples like violet and lavender also look lovely with hazel eyes. A black smokey eye will accentuate your hazel eyes. To complete this look, we will use a combination of black and gold eyeshadows to create a golden smokey eye look that will last all day long.


Step 1:
Before we get started, you will first need to apply an eyeshadow primer. If you want your makeup to last, this step is vital. Mary Kay® Eye Primer goes on smoothly and will prevent your brown smokey eye from creasing or smudging.

Step 6:
Use a cream color highlighter on your brow bone and inner corners of your eyes. Apply gold eyeshadow to the center of your lid and extend to the inner corners of your eyes and down. To finish this look simply add mascara and brown liner.
