How To Create A Smokey Eye

The Steve Laurant eyeshadow palette boasts the perfect colour combination to create a gorgeous smokey eye. Here’s how in just seven quick steps…

1. Prep Your Lid 

Before applying eyeshadow, you should always prep your lids with an eye primer. Our makeup artist Lucinka recommends using the MAC Pro Longwear Paint Pot Eye Shadow in shade Painterly. It acts as a great eye primer and makes the pigments in your eyeshadow stand out. 

2. Sketch Out The Shape Of Your Eye 

Using a blending eyeshadow brush, collect some pigments from the matte brown shade in the middle of the bottom row of your palette (1), and sketch out the shape of your eye. 

You’re aiming to achieve a winged smokey eye and the shape you create with this shade will act as the base of your look. Build up the shade until it reaches an intensity that you’re happy with. 

Insider Tip: The more layers you apply, the more intense the look will be and the longer it will last.  

3. Add Depth 

Next, apply the warmer brown shade that is in the bottom left corner (2) from the outside of your socket inwards, focusing mainly on the outside half of your lid. This should start to add depth to your smokey look.

4. Blend It Out 

To achieve an Instagram-worthy blend, use the soft, middle top shade (3) to blend out the shadows and soften the edges of your look. For best results, use a small, soft blending brush and barely touch your skin. Think of it as airbrushing – the softer the touch, the softer the blend.

5. Pack On Some Colour 

When you’ve blended your first three hues seamlessly, you can start to pack on some colour. For an intense smoke, opt for the darkest shade in the top left corner (4). Apply it from the outside in, focusing it mostly on the lash line. This will really intensify the look and make your lashes look fuller. 

6. Add Some Shimmer 

To really take this look to the next level, you can add some shimmer too. Pack the middle hue from the middle row (5) onto your lid using a flat brush. Make sure that it blends it with the rest of the shadow.

7. Don’t Forget To Highlight

To highlight your brow bone and the inner corner of your eyes, apply a touch of the light shimmery pink shade in the bottom right (6) using a small precision brush. This will really help to open the eyes up.

8. Wing It Out

No smokey eye is ever complete with a touch of eyeliner. Use a gel liner to create a wing or round off the look. Lucinka loves the the MAC Pro Longwear Fluidline Gel Liner in Blacktrack) She raves about it!

9. Add Some Lashings Of Mascara

You can also add a touch of liner just below your bottom lashes and smudge it out. To finish the look, apply a few lashings of mascara. You can reach for you go-tos, or try Lucinka’s favourite mascara (the L’Oréal Paris Telescopic Carbon Mascara) and gel liner (the MAC Pro Longwear Fluidline Gel Liner in Blacktrack) She raves about it!
