Smooth Eye Makeup Primer Onto Your Lids
The primer should always be applied first before beginning to create a brown smoky eye or any other makeup look.
For an even, long-lasting application of makeup, makeup primer helps to create a smooth base for your face.
Start by applying a light coating of L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Glow Lock Makeup Primer all over the skin. You can move on to step two after it has dried.
Step 2: Create A Flawless Base With Foundation And Concealer
It’s time to finish by enhancing your complexion with foundation and concealer. Your brown smoky eyes can be the focal point of your appearance if your skin is flawless.
Use a makeup blender, such as the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Blend Artist Foundation Blender, to apply your foundation starting with the L’Oréal Paris Infallible 24 Hour Fresh Wear Foundation, Lightweight.
When you need a little extra coverage, like under your eyes, reach for a concealer, like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Full Wear Concealer Waterproof, Full Coverage. What are dark circles, exactly?
Step 3: Perfect Your Brows
You’ll want your brows to look their best because a brown smoky eye is such a dramatic makeup look.
This step consists of seeking the lightest brown shade, preferably with a warm undertone.
Apply it to your crease with a small pencil brush and concentrate the color on the crease without reaching the inner corner and the brow bone area.
Take your time building the color adding more layers of the same eyeshade, and blend it again with a small fluffy brush to create a smooth, soft brown crease.
Focusing this transition light brown shade on the area between your natural crease and the brow bone will help you achieve the amazing brown smokey eye look. Hooded eyes typically have the crease in a lower position than almond eyes.
By doing this, you will be creating what I refer to as a “fake crease,” which will lift and open your hooded eye.
Step 4: Apply Your Brown Smokey Eye
Utilizing an eyeshadow palette to ensure you have all the necessary shades in one place is one of the simplest ways to make a smokey eye with brown shadow.
Choose the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Pocket Palette Eye Shadow in Boudoir Charme, which has four complementary brown eye shadow shades, for your brown smoky eye.
Apply the lightest shade just below your brow bone; this will serve as your highlight.
Afterward, cover your lid with a light brown shade. The outer corner of your lid should now be covered with a medium brown shade. The dark brown shade should then be applied to the inner corner of your eyes.
Step 5: Add Eyeliner
Apply eyeliner to your waterline to heighten the drama. Any smoked-out look can be achieved with this tightening makeup technique. Keep your eyeliner brown to match your smoky eye.
To achieve a smooth, creamy brown pencil eyeliner, briefly warm your eyeliner with a lighter before applying it. It will be easier to control.
On your lower lid, close to the line of your eyelashes, apply the pencil eyeliner. As a result, it will last longer and serve as a base for the following shade.
Use your fingers or a pencil eye brush to thoroughly blend it.
After that, select the darkest brown shade for your brown smokey eye. On top of the pencil eyeliner, apply this shade.
Step 6: Coat Your Lashes With Mascara
Now, do the same that we did on the eyelid but with a small brush.
Apply the lightest brown shade in the lower lash line next to the inner corner, then apply the medium brown shade in the middle, and in the outer lash line, use the darkest brown.
Without a coat or two of mascara, your brown smokey eye makeup would be incomplete. for an incredibly glitzy appearance.
Curl your natural lashes with your favorite eyelash curler and then apply waterproof mascara on your natural lashes and the lower lashes.
To achieve a fantastic and finished makeup look, you can certainly leave the brown smokey eye look as is.
However, If you loved how the eyes look open and bigger with false lashes, apply natural-looking false lashes.
Try to find false lashes with a transparent strip. Black strip false lashes have a tendency to be thick for a hooded eye and make it appear even more droopy.
Step 7: Color Your Pout
Remember that the focal point of your outfit should be your smokey eye! You should therefore avoid using bright lip colors.
Choose a neutral shade of lipstick, and then apply it by starting in the middle of your upper lip and tracing your mouth’s outline to the edges. Finally, fill in your bottom lip by gliding the lipstick across it.
Step 8: Final Touches
Highlight your inner corner and your brow bone with a shimmer beige shade or with the same powder highlighter that you use.
Finish your other Makeup steps and apply a warmly peachy or warm pink blush. Apply your lipstick, and you are done!
