One of my favorite celebrity smokey eyes is Nicole Scherzinger from the pussy cat dolls. Her smokey eyes always look flawless. She is a prime explame of perfect smokey eyes.

“Smokey Eye Tips”

1. Always start your smokey eyes or any eye makeup by applying foundation first. This helps prevent the racoon effect.

2. Next you want to begin with a sheer nude color all over your eye. Always pick a color closest to your natural shade, and begin putting the color all over from your lid to your brow bone.

3. Then you are going to apply either a plum or dark brown eyeshadow from your lid to your crease. (PLUM WORKS BEST ON LIGHTER COMPLEXIONS). Try to use a cream shadow since it smudges easier than powder. You can apply the color with your fingers or a makeup brush.

5. After that you’re going to line your entire eye with either a plum or dark color depending on your complexion. Darker complexions work very well with black and brown while lighter skin works better with plum. It all depends on how much attention you want with your smokey eye look. Line your eyes with the pencil color of your choice. For even more of a dramatic effect don’t forget to line your inner rims of you eye.

5. To really open your eyes use your eye curler to curl you eyelashes. To create even more of a curl blast the curler with the blow dryer for a few seconds, and then curl your lashes. Next use two to three coats of mascara.

6. For more sparkle add a silver shadow to the inner corners of your eyes.

Makeup tips to stop raccoon eyes

1. Always use a tissue folded in half right below your eye to catch any shadow that falls.

2. Use white translucent powder below the eyes and dust off after applying your eye makeup. This will also help catch any fallen shadow.

3. When you’re done applying your eye makeup use a concealer brush to clean up any. Take your brush and dab some foundation of loose powder under your eyes.
