The Ultimate Two-Minute Smokey Eye Tutorial

 5 minute Smokey Eye

Mastering a smokey eye can seem really intimidating! It doesn’t have to be. I’ve put together a super simple and quick smokey eye tutorial that even the most makeup-challenged mama can manage.  

5 minute Smokey Eye

Step 1: Using an angled brush, apply a very dark brown gel liner to upper lids in a thick line. Don’t worry about it being perfect.

Step 2: Using a very dark brown eye shadow, smudge the gel liner with the same angled brush to make the line soft.

Step 3: Run that same gel liner under eye and repeat with blending. Make sure to keep your blending a bit closer to the lash line on lower lash to avoid it looking too raccoonish. 

Step 4: Apply the gel liner to your water line (inner rim of lower lid) to create intensity.

That’s it! You’re out the door in two minutes flat.
