Smokey eyes have always helped in creating a very glamorous, sexy and attractive look. Before one decides to do the makeup, it is best to find out the eye shape. The eye shadow needs to be applied correctly and differently for every eye shape in order to enhance or conceal different parts of the eyes. Smokey eyes look great and are a great party makeup look for formal occasions. It all depends on the colors used to create the makeup.

You can do smokey eye makeup using different colors like gray tones, plum tones, green tones, lavender tones, red tones, blue tones or different combinations like black and red black and blue. In daytime use lighter colors and in night use darker colors.
