Just in Time For The Festive Season… How To Do The Smudgy Smokey Eye
Our beauty editor Isabella Schimid likes to create a French girl-inspired smudgy smokey eye with a black liner and mascara. Here’s how it’s done…
Get that liner right into the lash line and, with your finger, smudge along the top of the lash line. Finally to get a little more depth into the lash line, draw another layer and lightly smudge it again.
Drawing the liner in a straight line elongates the eye, whereas drawing the liner lifting up at the end of the eye gives a more rounded shape to the eye. Do not draw that line below the natural eye, as it will make the eye look droopy. It’s very important to get the mascara right into the roots of the lashes. This gives a natural lift to the lashes and also blends the liner with the mascara so you don’t see the lash line.
