The Perfect Summer Smokey Eye

Putting together perfect summer makeup looks that provide the “WOW” factor is easy. All it takes is a little creativity and the use of a color that will sizzle from start to finish. Eye shadow is an easy way to draw attraction to your eyes without overpowering your face. If applied correctly, you can create daily looks that will keep you on the radar for stunning eyes. Choosing the right colors that blend with your skin tone is key. You also want to have colors that are able to effortlessly blend into any setting.

While there are a number of summer colors that will attract attention, for the look of a professional makeover, you want to use the color bronze. Bronze eye shadow is versatile, sexy, and works with every eye color to deliver stunning looks that quickly go from day to night.

No matter what the event or setting, this look will integrate with any outfit to set a new standard in summer makeup looks. This combination works in the office or at dinner. Here are a few tips to create the perfect summer smokey eye:

  • Using a medium bronze color, apply the shadow from the lash line to the crease. Make sure to watch the application and not be too heavy-handed. This sets the foundation for the look and gives you an idea of whether or not you want to have a darker or lighter effect.
  • Using a good black eye liner, smoothly darken the lash line, blending upward. Repeat this process underneath the lash line for a dramatic effect that will make your eyes pop.
  • Apply a shimmer shadow. You can create your own by blending a copper shadow a few shades lighter than the bronze across the top lid to add dimension.
  • Create depth by outlining the existing shadow application with a matte brown color starting from the inner corner, traveling around the entire eye.
  • Apply two coats of Luminess Infinity Long Wear Black Mascara to finish the look.

You can repeat this process until you get the technique right. You may want to add a little variety for a light or dark smokey eye to fit the occasion. These tips will help you create beautiful eyewear looks that will blend perfectly with your beauty cocktails foundations for a flawless finish. Using the Luminess airbrush system will assist in fooling even the best of critics. Having beautiful eyes can make a difference in your confidence and presentation.
