Step 1 : Prime your eyes using your favorite primer. Don’t forget to prime the inner corners, lower lash line and brow bone area.

Step 2 : Using third finger, blend the primer till completely absorbed.

Step 3 : Tightline eyes using your favorite kohl. I have used Maybelline Colossal Kajal which has a medium black intensity. If you like a more intense look, you can use Lakme Absolute Kohl.

Step 4 : Using a pointed brush like MAC 219 or Coastal Scents pointed crease brush, run it along the outer half of the lower lash line to lightly smudge the kohl. I have not smudged it all the way in to keep the smokey look subtle.

Step 5 : Line upper lash line with the same kohl pencil. Keep the line as close to the lash as possible and thicken it slightly as you move outward so that the line is thickest at the outer corner.

Step 6 : Using the same brush used in Step 4, lightly smudge the edge of the liner that is away from the lash line to give a soft, smudged smokey look. We want to the keep the kohl closest to the lash line dark to give the lashes a density and volume.

Step 7 : Apply a light gold eye shadow(Inglot AMC Shine 26) on the inner half of the lid including the inner corner.

Step 8 : Apply a darker olive tinged gold(Colorbar Heatwave)Β on the outer half of the lid.

Step 9 : Apply the same olive-gold eye shadow to the outer half of the lower lash line. Blend the eye shadow in the crease using a fluffy brush like MAC 217 or MAC 222.

Step 10 (optional) : To add a little more depth to the outer corner, add a little brown eye shadow in the outer corner and lower lash line(only 1/4th of the way starting from outer corner).

Step 11 : Line the upper lash line thickly with a jewel toned green liner.

Step 12 : To give more definition, density and volume to the lashes, apply a very thin line of black liner keeping it very close to the lash line. Curl lashes if you like.

Finishing touches : Highlight brow bone with a subtle highlighter (I have used the same gold eye shadow in a very small amount), clean up any excess/fallout, apply concealer under the eyes and finish off with a volumizingΒ Mascara!

You can either wear a peach lip/cheek or a darker peachy brown/reddish brown lip/cheek with this eye makeup. Corals with look great too! As long as the rest of the face has a bit of warmth, the colors will coordinate well!

I have chosen a soft PeachyΒ combination for this look with a little bit of bronzer to add some warmth to the face.

Products used for the face :

  1. Clarins Instant Smooth Foundation
  2. Clinique blended face powder
  3. The Body Shop Honey Bronze collection – Bronzing gel
  4. Bourjois bronzing powder – Delice de poudre #52
  5. Lakme Absolute blush – Day Blush

  1. Hi ankita, your eyes look lovely. But I have a doubt. Smokey eyes will be suitable for ladies with dark circles? I have dark circles and my eyes look as if they fell into some gutter. But I love to create a Smokey eye look. Is it possible for me to get a lovely Smokey eye look?

    1. Hi Nisha, if you have dark circles, you must use a concealer to cover up your dark circles! Adding kohl and eye shadow on the lower lash line will only draw attention to the dark circles. Please read my post on concealers to find out the best concealer for u. You may need to use a corrector for better results.

  2. Beautiful wearable color!!! I think this can be the best one to start with as I am a new to eye shadows!! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ Thank you Ankz!! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

  3. Loved the tute a lot! I would pair this with soft pink lips I guess, but cant be sure until I try it myself!

    1. Thanks Eesha! The Clarins foundation is really good, it gives about medium coverage but it has a very natural and smooth finish, makes the pores appear smaller too.

  4. Lovely look! Your eyes kinda have that duo chrome effect of green and gold from an angle.. Glad to see someone use the Day blush in the blogosphere.. i bought this instead of the night sheen.. Howz the lippie? Is it drying?

    1. Thanks Dimpy πŸ™‚ I love this blush! The lipstick sadly is really drying. I love the shade though.

  5. Very pretty! I love gold and bronze eyeshadows. I have a question. Don’t you find that thick eyeliner even on just the upper lash liner instantly makes your eyes look tiny? I ask this because I have big eyes but liner on the top lashline makes them tiny..so I skip liner altogether and use only mascara and a but a bit of kohl on the waterline and this makes them look bigger and defined. Any thoughts?
    ps: tried the blueberry yoghurt after you mentioned it…YUMMY! πŸ™‚

    1. Hi Manu, for my eyes, I find adding kohl makes them look smaller. Liner suits my eyes more so when I’m in a hurry, I only do liner and skip the kohl. In the above tutorial, it may appear that the liner is making the eyes smaller because I had lowered my lids while taking the photo from step 11 to step 12 πŸ™‚ Glad u liked the blueberry one, try plum too πŸ™‚

  6. super awesome ankita.. hey will u pls review this lakme lippie? am going gaga over the color… how much does it cost?

  7. Absolutely wearable and chic at the same time. I like the smokey effect on it. By the way, you look gorgeous. πŸ™‚

  8. Looks wearable and not too tough to do.

    How is the clinique face powder? Good coverage, like a powder foundation? Have you reviewed it?

  9. hey I loved it… I would try this my self πŸ™‚
    but I have a request.. I love the way you apply the blusher.. can you please do a tutorial on that πŸ™‚

  10. Wow u have got ahh-mazing eyes πŸ™‚ I absolutely love all ur tutorials! I am so gonna try this look soon. Except that, i don’t have a jewel toned green liner. I do have a teal though. Wonder if it would look good. I have no makeup shops around. Living in a township, i need to travel quite a bit to buy any! I have the same mascara that u have here, which am yet to open. I take time to open mascaras, cuz once opened, we need to use within 6mths. Waiting for the existing other brand to finish. Do u have a review on this mascara? Is it good? πŸ™‚ Awww sorry for the long comment… But, this is my very first comment on ur blog πŸ˜€
