3. Use the dark eyeshadow and place it on the outer corner of your eye.


4. Blend, blend, blend. This is how you will get it to look smokey.


5. Mix the medium and light color and use an angle brush to apply along the lower lash line.


6. Apply eyeliner to the top lashline, then blend into the eyelashes. Line the lower and upper waterlines.
