It is the festive season, which means that it is time to get your outfits sorted, your dancing shoes ready, and make your make-up and hair flawless. But, while hot pink lips, the perfection of Kim Kardashian’s facial contouring, and false lashes hold special places in the hearts of make-up lovers worldwide, none of them make us feel as bold, mysterious, gorgeous, and even sexy as the timeless smokey eye. Still turning heads on runways, nothing can compare to the ultimate smokey eye. But have you ever tried doing it yourself at home? Make-up artistry has evolved, so what we were taught in the 90s or 2000s is very different to what make-up artists are doing now. Not everyone is magically born with a make-up brush in their one hand and a bottle of glitter in the other. For most, make-up artistry is a learned skill, an art that demands passion, creativity and drive. So what is the secret to the infamous smokey eye? Get expert assistance or you will never get it 100% right.
