This just in! A smokey eye without any trace of a liner or mascara is the makeup look of the season and it couldn’t have come at a more appropriate time. No matter how gorgeous a dramatic eye with smokey lids, a winged flick and loads of mascara looks, this is the latest take on the subject!
First spotted on international runways in early 2019, black smoke-storm eyes without any hint of definition or fuller lashes is the hottest trend that’s catching on. It is a subtle take on the classic smokey eye, yet at the same time, eccentric and enchanting.
Even without mascara, shimmer or liner, this charcoal smokey eye has an intense femme fatale feel to it and makes your eyes look bigger and beautiful. The key is to play with the shape and depth of colour you pack on your eyes. Selena Gomez’s rounded edges are enough to make her smokey eye look mesmerising even without defined lashes or a speck of glitter in sight.
If you can’t wait to try out this beguiling look, here’s how you can get it in easy steps:
Step 1: Start by moisturising your lids. Then prep your lids by applying a pea sized amount of primer.
Step 2: Apply a neutral or beige shade to create a base. This helps bringing out the intensity of the darker colour you use.
Step 3: Take black eyeshadow and pack it on the outer edge of your lid. Blend it inwards till the crease with a round, fluffy eyeshadow brush.
Step 4: Don’t define the lash lines and smudge the corners for a smokey look. Create a winged or rounded end with the help of the eye brush.
Step 5: Take an angled brush and smudge the same colour on the lower lash line as well. And you’re done!
