Smoky Eye Makeup : Smoky Eye Makeup: Applying Dark Eye Shadow

I'm going to show you the third step for applyinga smoky eye and that's applying the darker color.

I'm going to use a stiff brush becauseit's going to apply the pigment a little more intense than if you used a softer brush.

I'musing a greenish brownish color, and you want to tap the extra color off of the brush sothat the dust doesn't fall underneath her eye.

Then you're just going to pack the coloralong the lid and build it up in layers.

You don't want to go too high because you want to blend it back into the brown.

So thebrown that you did before, that's going to help as a guideline.

You want to layer thecolor up so you can make it as dark as you want.

It's harder to go back and make it lighterthan it is to make it darker.

So just slowly layer the colors and pat it on because that'sgoing to apply the pigment a little more intense to give you that smoky eye.

And now I'm goingto grab the blendy brush again and just fuse those two colors together.

Just use your brushand go in circular motions and that's going to blend the two colors so you don't havea rough edge, and if you get any excess powder underneath just take a fan brush and justflick it away.

And that's step three to smoky eyes.
