Ancome’s Ultimate Guide to Creating the Perfect Smokey Eye Look


The smokey eye look is a classic and timeless makeup trend that never goes out of style. It’s a sultry and bold look that can be achieved with just a few simple steps. Here’s Ancome’s ultimate guide to creating the perfect smokey eye look:

Step 1: Prep your lids

Before you start applying any makeup, it’s important to prep your lids to ensure that your eye shadow stays on all day. Start by applying a primer or a base that matches your skin tone. This helps to even out your skin and create a smooth canvas for your eye shadow. Then, apply a light-colored eye shadow over your entire eyelid, from the lash line to the brow bone. This will help to create a base for your smokey eye look.

Step 2: Define your crease

Next, use a darker eye shadow shade to define your crease. Apply the darker shade along your crease, starting from the outer corner of your eye and blending inward. Use a blending brush to blend the color out, creating a gradual fade from dark to light. This will help to create depth and dimension to your eyes.

Step 3: Add the smoke

Now it’s time to add the drama to your look. Take a black or dark-colored eye shadow, and apply it to the outer corner of your eyelid and blend it towards the middle of your eye. Use a small brush to apply the same dark color along your lower lash line. Be sure to blend the color out well, so that there are no harsh lines.

Step 4: Line your eyes

To intensify your smokey eye look, apply a black eyeliner along your upper and lower lash lines. You can use a pencil liner or a liquid liner, whichever you prefer. Make sure to get as close to your lash line as possible, and extend the liner slightly past your outer corner to create a winged effect.

Step 5: Finish with mascara

Finally, finish off your look with a few coats of mascara. The mascara will help to define your lashes and complete your smokey eye look. Don’t be afraid to add false lashes for even more drama.


  • Use a light hand when applying dark eye shadow, as it’s easier to add more than to remove it.
  • Blend, blend, blend! The key to a flawless smokey eye is to blend your eye shadow well.
  • Choose colors that complement your skin tone and eye color.
  • Don’t forget to highlight your brow bone and inner corner with a light-colored eye shadow to make your eyes pop.

With these simple steps and tips, you can create the perfect smokey eye look for any occasion. Whether you’re going for a bold and dramatic look or a subtle and sexy look, the smokey eye is a classic that will never go out of style.
