You need to keep the eyelid oil-free for having the right smokey effect. Apply a primer to achieve this. Try the Urban Decay’s ‘primer portion’ or MAC’s ‘paint’ for this. The primer keeps the smokey effect intact. Apply a light concealer below the eyes to accentuate the smokey effect.
You can apply powdered concealer too. This will not only conceal the dark circles below eyes but also help gett rid of the excessive eye shadow.
You can also use a very mute shaded eye shadow and apply it all around the eyes from the lash line to the inner corner. This not only provides a nice canvas for your smokey eye make up but also highlights the whole effect.

• Applying the eye liner:
Match the eye liner as per your smokey eye effect color, and apply it on the upper lash line and have a broader line in the middle of the lash line. Line the upper and the lower lash rims using an eye pencil. For ladies with smaller eyes, start lining from the middle of the lash rim towards the outer ends.

Use an eye liner pencil on the bottom lash line to blend color since they can be easily smudged. After applying the liner use your finger to smudge the line, using a bit of shadow is also great for giving the complete smudge effect.

Use a Q-tip for this. Then apply a light base shade. A shimmery eye shadow will complete the effect. Go for mundane, pearly and creamy shades for base. Whereas for the darker hue pick a nice dark shade may be a chocolate brown, grey or black will help create the magic.
Concentrate the lighter shades at the inner corners of the eyes.
