Simple Smudgy Smokey Eye Tutorial

This is a very simple smokey eye look I learnt from an Inglot makeup artist. I love this specific smokey eye look. It is messy, simple, smudged , takes no time, and great for both day or evening time.

Start by priming your eye lids.

Take a dark brown eyeshadow using MAC 217 brush and apply it all over the lid. Go, past the crease.

Now take a black eye kohl pencil and rim it on your upper lash line, lower lash liner and water line. you don’t have to be perfect in lining.

Take a clean pointy brush such as 219 and smudge the eye kohl .

you can smudge with a flat brush as well.

Now make a small v right on the corner of yoru eye lid with the black kohl.

Smudge and blend the outer V by moving your brush inwards until there are no harsh lines to be seen and it looks all blended.


Now takeΒ  a dark chocolate brown eyeshadow and apply right on top of the black eye kohl. this will not only set your kohl and prevent it from moving but would also create that duo chrome eyeshadow look.


Apply some compact powder on the brow bone.

Curl lashes and apply mascara


you can apply light gold eye shadow or matte peach eyeshadow just on the inner corner of your eye so that your eyesΒ  don’t look too closed.And you are done! πŸ™‚

Products Used : MAC prolongwear Concealer used both as foundation and concealer, MAC Painterly Paint pot. The two arrows in the Coastal Scents 88 Palette show the colours used in the look, MAC Feline Eye Kohl, Estee Lauder Mascara, lakme Enrich Lipstick 132, MAC Golden Lariat Mineralize Skinfinish

            1. priya it is a part of upcoming mac wonder woman collection. There are 3 parts in it bronzer, blush and highlighter. It is a little difficult to pick only bronzer so you have to squeeze your brush and for highlighter you have to use a smaller brush. It looks gorgeous when you apply it and very mucha part of your skin. also that it is a mineralize blush, it has that glowy effect that MAC MSFs have.

  14. Hey Rati….Your eyes look awesome!!!! :yes: keep it coming!!! I to love smokey eyes….I am going to try green after I get something in green ( I am eyeing MAC Humid)….. :yahoo:

    By the way did you take look at Kate Middleton makeup on her wedding ? it was simple, chic and dark eyes…..and rosy cheeks, or coral….

    :thanks: :thanks: :thanks: for making me now pay attention to makeup!

    1. I am planning to do something with humid. It’s a gorgeous green shadow but surprisingly I have not used it much. :((

      I watched the entire wedding. kate did her own makeup- simple brown smokey eyes, pinkish gloss and pink blush. She was looking gorgeous. :))

      Thank you and thank you for the last night’s mail. It helped. :))

      1. Thanks Rati for reading it….

        With Humid, any black eye shadow with shimmer will go good…so I will do inner 3/4 of the eye….as Humid and outer 1/4th black and blend nicely….and then eyeling of eyes and mascara….it will look good! :yahoo:

  15. :rose: :rose: :rose: smoldering eyes, lippie so complimenting….and your hair looks a bit different…great overall look..

  16. Oh wow Rati….absolutely stunning & sexy smokey eyes look….so easy to do too, thanks for this tute, I have to try this ASAP. Peacocky collection is not yet launched here yet….and wow I love that Wonder Woman blush. :yahoo: :yahoo: :)) :))

    1. Hi Sabrina, :)) Thank you do very much. :)) OH!! I think it would be launched soon only since it is almost at all places in the country now. :)) I’ll do the review soon. :))

  17. hey rati

    read abt ur injury…. how r u now? :pill: :pill: :pill: :pill: :pill:

    Waise! u look gorgeous in this tute… :puchhi: :puchhi: :puchhi: :puchhi:

  18. ty ty rati, this is easy peasy,
    today i did a few maybelline purchases, n very happy, thanks to the recommendations here, got the colossal liner, maybelline gel liner , and i couldnt resist the cute yellow colossal mascara so got that too! loving all three , woohoo! :yahoo:

  19. Hi Rati,

    thanks its very easy………reminded me of your mac waveline since it looks more blue…..have u done its review πŸ˜‰

      1. ok i had been to mac and had seen the waveline and rem bout ur entry came in and did seach but couldnt find it so asked…..

        Planning to buy this since need a dark blue eye liner pro can u suugest a brand? πŸ˜‰ :waytogo:

  20. wow love it Rati. love how black and browns suit you so well. :bravo: I look hideous in such shadows. specially since I have super dark circles. Looks like someone punched me right in the eye πŸ™

    Oh btw, I just found a local seller selling coastal scents, elf and sigma products :yahoo:
    Bought my first palette also πŸ˜€

    1. Hi Insiya, for smokey eyes it becomes a must to conceal the under eyes. So I guess with proper concealing you’d totally rock the blacks and browns. :))

      Awesomeee!!! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ I hope we also have someone selling all these bronds soon. you enjoy yourself! It’s good to have you back. :-*
