Quick and modern smoky eye:
Prep the entire lid. The key to keeping an eye shadow from melting into your eyelid or crease as the day goes on is to keep eyelids oil-free. To do this, start with Bellapierre Makeup Base (also referred to as (‘primer’.) Apply to entire upper lid from lash line to brow and as needed a small amount below the lower lash line, this can be applied with a cotton swab or your ring finger.
Using the "Noir" eyeshadow from Bowtie smokey eye palette with a eyeliner brush apply a coating of the "noir" along the upper and lower lash lines.
Apply highlight color:
Using an eye shadow brush apply the "Snowflake" to the upper brow bone and the tear duct area of the eye this will highlight the eye.
Apply light base color:
Again, the key to a smokey eye is pairing a lighter base with the darker hue. Apply the "Tin Man" to the eyelid blending upwards.
Blend in darker color:
Keep the dark color below the crease. Now that you have the highlight, base and eyeliner on, its time to get the "Smokey Eye" look. You need a darker eye shadow shade; using an eye shadow brush blend in the "Noir" starting at your lash line, create a V shape on the outer corner of the eyelid blending up. Make sure to blend the color into the lash line so the eye liner disappears.
The key to a good smokey eye look is to blend and start with the eyes that way you can clear up any fall out on the face.
