Smoky makeup can be easily applied to the eyes after applying it. But It’s very important to cover up your dark circles.
If you have selected black, brown or gray color for Smokey eye makeup, then use the powder before applying them to the eyes. If the eyes are small, you can also use eyeliner. Applying the liner in length will make the eyes look big.
Create an Undone look:
Create an Undone look: Take an eyeshadow brush and give it a light undone look, give it a smudgy look. This gives a complete smokey look to the eyes. If you want, you can use a cotton ball or brush to get this look.

Apply eye liner:
Use a liner in a darker shade, probably jet black and line in a thick fashion. And use kajal under rim lines of your eyes as well if your eyes are big but for small eyes do not use jet black eyeliner, use a shade near to black but not jet black. You may line the lower rim too but for some people, it works and makeup eyes look popped up and for others, it depressed the look. So do a trial and error for lining the lower rim.
Apply Mascara coats:
To give a smoky look, it is necessary to apply several coats of mascara on both upper and lower eyelashes without any restriction. This will add heaviness to the eyelids and look quite dark. If your eyelids are small then do not hesitate to use false lashes. You can also curl the eyelids if you want.

Use glitter for a glitter look:
If you also want a glittery look with smokey, you can use just small tiny dot of glitter after makeup.
