Right Technique

It is suggested that the color shouldn’t go beyond the lower lashes as it would start looking ghoulish which is not the look you want. You need the color to be rich and dense under the lash line which diffuses slowly as you go further down.

Blur it

Use a crease brush or a mini-dome brush to blend out the eye show to get the perfect looking Smokey eye makeup. Get the color under your eye smudged carefully as well.


Make sure to keep the eye show under the iris and the outer corners. Keep it away from the tear trough as the tear trough area is for the concealer.
