A No Eyeshadow Smokey Eye Tutorial !

by mehak on February 25, 2014

in Eye Makeup Looks, Makeup Tutorials


I have a tutorial for you girls that is so easy, you can do it with your eyes closed ! (Well actually, you are supposed to do all tutorials with your eyes closed but still this one is like a total cakewalk!) . All you need is :

1. The new Bobbi Brown Smokey Eye Eyeliner (I have the one in Amethyst Black)

2. The Bobbi Brown Smokey Eye Mascara (Or whatever other mascara you have)

3. (If you are not using the Bobbi Brown Eyeliner and are using any other kajal you will need a cotton bud and vaseline)



Moving clockwise from top left

1. Naked eye, just with Bobbi Brown Tinted Eye Brightener used under eye

2. Apply the eyeliner like a a regular thin liner on your upper lid

3. Take the smudger end of the pencil and smudge it. The motion should be like you would use an eraser on a line-going back and forth

4. Thats how pretty and smudgy it looks (If you dont have the Bobbi Brown Eyeliner and want the same effect with your kohl which doesnt smudge so beautifully, take a cotton pud and dip it in Vaseline then smudge. Little trick I learnt from Lisa Eldridge)

5. Open your eye and see if you want to make it even more smudgier. I let it be

5. Line your water line. Keep the pencil more intense in the outer corner and minimal in the inner corner

6. Take the smudger and smudge the same way (Thickest at outer corner)

7. Ta-da. Add mascara and you are done!

You can go more dramatic. For example i could have done a super thick line from the liner and then smudged it, but I like to keep it subtle so I limited it .

Love the color.. But since it smudges so easily does it stay put? Does it transfer to socket and under the eyes ( panda eyes


mehak February 25, 2014 at 11:31 am

hi swati..well i wont wear it everyday thats for sure
but no it doesnt give panda eyes though it does smudge throughout the day

Hi ruchi
Yes absolutely! If you have darker lids then might as well put dark eyeshadow and make em look smokey right !

now i really NNED to get MAC f & B foundation…you look so glowing and beautiful! but no bobbi brown here..so will try this with my bourjois smoky liner which is amazing but is a PAIN to sharpen!


Ankita Singh February 25, 2014 at 12:52 pm

Life saver, this one! I tried smokey eyes but being a make-up toddler, ended up wiping away everything the first time and giving myself kung fu panda eyes the second time. Will surely try this one.
Also, Mehak, I have a doubt – I have often seen you and many others wear smokey eyes with black or dark outfits. Can the smokey eye be paired with light coloured pastels or whites?


Aayushi February 25, 2014 at 1:08 pm

LOL Same thing happened with me :D


Peachesandblush February 25, 2014 at 3:36 pm

Hi Ankita..
Yes absolutely..infact if you wear a pastel like shell pink outfit and do a shell pink lipstick with smokey eye it looks fab!

The only time i would avoid a smokey eye is if im wearing something really bright.

U look so so pretty…. i need to get this as i love smokey eyes :D :*


Fiona February 25, 2014 at 1:57 pm

Super easy! M loving it… Im pretty much dumb when it comes to smokey eyes and using more than one shadow makes it look very shabby obviously bz I’m bad at it. I would wanna try this but getting my hands on BObbi brown is difficult and one mor question can I use smolder from MAC? Or can you recommend something. Thanks a ton!

hi Mehak
I think you look absolutely ravishing! The eye makeup, face, lips everything looks amazing and well put together. I was just wondering what your base makeup was when i saw that you used the MAC foundation. what have you used as concealer.
Super hot!
