Start off with a primer on the eyelid and eye creases. College Gloss recommends the Shadow Insurance Anti-Crease Eyeshadow Primer ($20 at Ulta). The primer will prepare eyes for shadow by preventing creasing, ensuring a long-lasting finish.
Apply a light mauve shadow over the entire lid. This shade may look strange on its own, but once other colors are added, it will look much more natural.
Use a medium brown shade to contour and continue to blend.
To highlight, apply an off-white or crème-colored shadow under the brows, as well as in the corners of the eyes.
To finish the look, curl the eyelashes and apply one-to-two coats of your favorite brown or black mascara. If you’re an eyeliner junkie, you also can feel free to add some brown or black liner on your lash line.
Now you’ll be ready to conquer your job or internship in style without worrying about an overwhelming makeup look. Turn this classy date look up a notch by simply adding a swipe of darker shadow onto the lids or in the corners of the eyes. To make the look work for girls night, add a swipe of glittery shadow. The smokey eye look is both classic and versatile and now perfectly suitable for a day look.
