Makeup does not work in isolation from styling, clothing, and accessories. It is important to maintain balance and harmony in the image as a whole. If you put on a flashy dress, choose noticeable accessories, make complex styling with voluminous curls, black smokey eyes and apply red lipstick, then the image will hardly turn out elegant. At the same time, a laconic dress or a simple T-shirt with basic jeans, "beach" curls or a simple tail may well go well with bright makeup with accents on both the eyes and lips.

Blue eyeshadows, coral or red lips, wet styling are an option for an evening look for the bold. For those not accustomed to experimenting, you can opt for monochrome makeup and make your eyes and lips equally intense in the same key (for example, brown or brick), or stay true to the principle of one accent.

When choosing blush and lipstick, be guided not only and not so much by the color of the eyeshadow, but by the image as a whole. The easiest and safest option for combining with smokey eyes is to give up blush in favor of a sculptor, and apply a neutral gloss or lipstick on the lips without a clear outline.

Most often, the skin of the eyelids does not need to be prepared in any special way, it just needs to be clean. Do not apply moisturizers to the moving eyelid - neither before nor after makeup - this can cause puffiness and contribute to premature wrinkles. Liquid shadows Eye Tint, Giorgio Armani themselves serve as both a color and a primer. They can be used both independently and as a base for dry shadows.

First of all, it is important to understand that smoky eyes are easy. To create the most common makeup, you only need a pencil, eyeshadow and mascara. With a soft pencil, paint over the growth line of the eyelashes (the distance between the eyelashes), without trying too hard, apply the pencil on the movable eyelid along the eyelashes and slightly above, and blend it with the back of the pencil, slightly stretching the shape towards the temples. Then apply the shadow over the entire movable eyelid, blend slightly above the crease. Apply mascara to your lashes, focusing on the base. Do the same for the lower eyelid if desired.>
