10 Sultry Smoky Eye Makeup Looks We Crushed On

Smokey eye makeup is one beauty trend that has been in existence for ages and right now it’s having a major moment across the globe. Sure, it is not a look we can rock every day but we can not deny that for special occasions and evening events, it has the ability to take your look from “oh nice” to “oh wow!” 

One of the reasons the smokey eye makeup look has remained so popular for so long is its versatility. Smoky eyes do not only come in the signature black but can be done in almost every color out there. Gray, blue, burgundy – you name it, you can smoke it. You can also spice things up with a mix of colors. The intensity of your smokey eye is also a matter of choice as you’ll see in this list. smokey eys

While smoked eyes are one of the most popular makeup looks, it can be very tricky to achieve when you don’t know the right techniques to use. The trick to mastering a perfect smokey look is choosing the right color for your skin tone; choosing a lighter shade for transitioning and most importantly, blending! Great blending is the major key here. How well you blend the eye shadow tones into your eyelids determines whether or not your smokey look ends up hot or hmm.

For your inspiration, we have curated 10 sultry smokey eye makeup looks we spotted on the gram. We’ve also added a great tutorial by Dimma Umeh to help you master the art.
