While there is a lot of talk about Gothic style coming back into fashion, this time, fashionable smoky makeup is presented with a different prism - the catwalk smokey eye effect: softer, more subtle, more suited to red carpet events than nightclubs that we saw in the Fall 2019 collections of Tom Ford, Brock Collection, Elie Saab or Paco Rabanne.
This season, the most fashionable smokey eye makeup consists of a variety of browns, from black chocolate, cocoa and brown granite to caramel, black, gray, and silver.
How to Create Trendy Smoky Makeup?
The most intense and darkest color should be at the outer corners of the eyes. It is essential to apply shadow after layer and disperse well so that lighter tones blend evenly with darker tones. Use a lighter shade or gloss shadow at the inner corners of the eyes. The inner corners of the eyes, tinted with metallic luminous shadows, give the eyes expressiveness and the gaze liveliness.
Use a black or dark brown pencil to subtly highlight the upper and lower lash lines, but do not leave a tight dash - evenly spread the pencil (especially on the lower lashes).
Be sure to keep your lashes in mind when creating smoky make up - one of the highlights of this look. Apply a few layers of mascara on your lashes, which will not only lengthen but give volume. For a more dramatic look, use self-adhesive eyelash tassels, which look more natural than continuous eyelashes.
