Prep your lids with an eye shadow primer so the color will not run.
Choose two complimentary colors in a light and dark tone. Classic smokey eyes usually use a light grey and a dark, gunmetal shade. Other hues to try are a pale violet and purple or beige and a metal brown.
Apply the light shade across your entire lid to above your crease line.
Using an angled eye shadow brush, apply the darker shade in the crease of your eye, along the outer corner of the eyelid and across the upper lash line.
Apply the same darker color along your bottom lash line.
Next, take a black or brown eyeliner and apply to your upper lash line and gently smudge.
Finally, apply 2-3 coats of a volumizing black mascara.
