The festive season is here and we're ready to party! And what better look to to dance the night away in than a dramatic smoky eye? It's dark, cool and sexy as anything, so scroll through to find out how to create a smudge-proof smoky eye for the party season (no more 'panda eyes'!)
Prep your lid with an eye primer like NYX Eye Shadow Base (R99.99) to create the perfect canvas for your shadow. Primer acts like a pigment 'magnet' so your eyeshadow stays put for longer. No primer on hand? Lightly pat concealer onto lids.
The key to creating a 'smoky' effect is to blend. Take an eyeshadow pallet like Palladio Silk FX all-in-one Eyeshadow Pallet in Burlesque (R99.95) and apply the darkest shade close to you upper lash line, blending it upwards. Don't forget to apply the shadow onto your lower lash line.
Step 3:Take your medium shade and using an eyeshadow brush sweep it over the middle of your lid, blending it into the crease.
Now it's time to highlight! Take your lightest shade and apply it to your brow bone - this will instantly lift your eyes. Want added sparkle? Apply your highlighting shade to the inner corners of your eyes.
And finally...finish off the look by rimming your inner lower lash line with a kohl pencil. Add a coat of mascara and you're good to go!
