5 Minutes Smokey Eye Look

This look I did in 5 minutes, and I'm not kidding. It's super easy and there's no need to blend it if you did the groundwork properly! Use an eyepencil that's not too dry nor to creamy. I used Wet n' Wild Coloricon Eyeliner in Charcoal. Just draw it on where you want the eyeshadow to be and make sure to use more of it in the outer corner. Don't draw it above the crease line.
Now, take your finger and smudge it all out and together. Make sure to get it as even as you can, and add more if you need to. You'll be needing a darker and a lighter shadow, I used two hues of greys.
Start with the darker on and just add it in the outer corner, then take the lighter one and add that one in the inner corner and above the darker one just to get a nice fade.
Voila! Done!!!

Let me know if you want me to do it picture by picture!!

Gorgeous! I can never get a good smokey eye but this one is nice and light. I would love a step by step, but I need things laid out for me or else I get lost ...

I haven't used this technique for a while but agree that if you do the ground work, the finished look is as if you have spent more than 5 minutes. I will have to remember to try this again! Thanks. x:)

Very pretty! You make it sound so easy, but it would probably take me a lot longer than 5 minutes :)
