Makeup Tutorial: The Reverse Smoky Eye
You won’t need to start with anything more than minimal makeup—this reverse smoky eye will definitely be the focus of your look.
All of the drama will be concentrated on your lower lid, but to prevent the top lid from looking like an afterthought, add a little shine with a pale shimmery shadow. Pack it on to your lid using a flat brush.
Take a chubby black shadow pencil, like the Nars’ Soft Touch Shadow Pencil () in Aigle Noir that we’re using (this shade has some gold shimmer in it to play up the smokiness), and apply it all along your lower lash line and waterline. Andersen likes to use shadow pencils for this step because they’re more malleable than liners, so you have better control of where the color goes.
With a small flat brush, use sideways strokes to buff the color in. Soften the edges and extend the pigment ever so slightly past the outer corners and inner corners of your eyes. (Note: You may have to go over your waterline if your blending faded it out too much.)
Now really smoke it out with a shimmery cool-toned brown eye shadow. We’re using a shade from Dior’s 5-Color Designer Eyeshadow () in Amber. With a small brush, apply the shadow over the black pencil, focusing on the edges. This will soften the look and help you achieve the ever-important color gradation every smoky eye needs.
No smoky eye is complete without a generous dose of black mascara.
