Smokey makeup works at creating a sexy-powerful look with dark eyes and bold lips. The main focus of this style of makeup is the eyes. Shades of blacks and grey are used to create a dark smokey look, and shades of brown may be used to create a soft smokey look. Long fake lashes, Kohl and an eyeliner complete the eyes. Depending on the occasion and the time of the day, the makeup artist may use a bold lip colour or even leave them nude to only highlight the eyes.
Smokey makeup is all about the modern day woman who is equal parts graceful and powerful. It has an extremely sensuous appeal, without looking too modern or even eclectic.
