Eyes are no doubt one of the most focused upon parts of one’s body, specifically face. And when you talk about facial grooming, they need a special effort to make them look more prominent and attractive. Generally large eyes are considered more beautiful and charming and they need a very little grooming as to enlarge them further may cause them look weird. Certain make over techniques are used to enlarge eyes in order to make a glamorous and feminist impression. Besides using Maskara, liner, eye pencil and artificial eyelashes, eye shadows play a vital role in eye grooming. A proper application can change the entire look and contribute a lot towards a perfect makeover. As far as the eye shadow styles are concerned, the most popular and demanded style is the smoky eye make-up. It is used generally to give a glamorous and stunning look to one’s face and enlarge eyes in a best way. It can be further applied with different techniques to create Neutral, Galaxy Star or Dramatic smoky eye according to face’s shape or the type of party or gathering that you are just going to attend. Here we are to share a simple smokey eye makeup tutorial for beginners to learn how to make a smokey eye.
