Mila Kunis, Tyra Banks, Angelina Jolie, and Natalie Portman, are just some celebrities who've truly mastered the art of carrying off the smokey-eye trend. Now, you too can sport the look with finesse, using the following tips and tricks of how to apply brown smokey eye makeup.
Using a good eye makeup remover, gently clean your eyelids, including the areas around your eyes; use careful one-directional strokes without roughly tugging at the skin.
You'll need an eye shadow brush, a blending brush, eyelid primer, mascara, liquid eyeliner, pencil eyeliner, smudging brush, and lastly, dark and light brown eye shadow, including one in peach/beige (buy an eye shadow compact that comes with complementary colors in one place, specifically for this sort of eye makeup).
Primer and Pencil Eyeliner
Cover your entire eyelids with the primer, gently dabbing the corners of your eyes too, with your middle finger. Primer helps to keep eye shadow in place, without letting it smudge or fade during the course of the day.
Don't wait for the first coat to dry before applying the next, or your lashes will clump. You can use an eyelash crimper to lengthen your lashes first, before applying mascara.
