Select the light shade of the concealer.  For this, the mineral makeup foundation is the best because applying it can hide even the darkest spots. and you can also use your foundation.  Smoky makeup can be easily applied to the eyes after applying it. But It’s very important to cover up your dark circles. 

Select Powder:

 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.

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. But if your lashes are good enough then curling is not required because it would make the look too artificial.

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.
