Get Smoky Eyes Using Brown Eyeshadow

Today I will show you how to make brown smoky eyes. Today, in order to do that we will need Flormar brown chocolate palette eyeshadows, MAC facial powder and Maybelline brown eyeliner. That's all we need.
So we will start with a slight foundation. I'm not putting on any foundation today, just a facial powder to hide any imperfections and even out my skin color. This facial powder is a little lighter than my natural skin-tone. The area around your mouth is very important, as are the corners of your mouth and your eyelids.
The eyelids are especially important when you do eye makeup. Applying powder on your eyes allows you to cover the dark circles around your eyes.
Can you see the difference? One has dark circles, the other does not.
Don't forget your ears and some of your neck.
I am going to be using a flat brush.
I'm going to start with the whitest tone to highlight my eyebrows like I normally do. If you are limited in the number of brushes you have, you always want to start with the lighter tones so that you don't mess up your makeup. If you use the darker tones first then you want to apply lighter tones you may end up with the darker colors in areas where do not want them.
Also, I am applying the highlight into the inner corners of my eyes. I look like a moth right now.
Now I'm going to move to the next color. It is a little darker. It is a peachy color.
I'm going to apply it all over my eyelid. The color graduation should be very subtle. There should not be any hard lines. You want to achieve the smoky effect on your on your eyes. This color goes on your whole eyelid.
So, step number three, we have moved to the darker tone, which is the lighter brown.
The lighter brown color will go on the same eyelid, but it will cover less area than the previous tone did. It's a base for the darker color. Do the other eye. Keep in mind that we are using the same brush for all four colors.
Last step, we are going to apply the darkest tone. This goes on your eyelid right next to your eyelashes. If you want to achieve a really dark tone, or if you want to make your eyelids darker, which I'm doing today, you can wet your brush and apply the eyeshadow with a wet brush.
These need to be blended all the way so that there are no obvious borders between the colors. So as you can see there is a slight border here and here so I need to plan those in and for those I'm going to use a different brush. We are done with eyeshadows.
As you can see I have fall off on my cheeks and it makes him look dirty. I will use a brush to wipe that off then follow that with some facial powder.
So to line the bottom eyelid, I'm going to use brown eyeliner by Maybelline. I am going to line the lash line as well as the water line.
I'm going to line the upper eyelid now as well. I'm not using black eyeliner because I think brown looks better because it's not as bold. We are making a smoky brown eye, so we want that to match.
Let's do the same thing with the left. I lined the bottom lash line and the water line.
Then follow that by lining the upper eyelid.
We are done with our eyes. Thank you for watching VisiHow. If you have any questions you can ask them in the comments below. If you want the full look, want to see how to apply blush, and what color lipstick goes well with this look, please watch part two.
