[BEAUTY/LIT] How to Do a Poetic Smokey Eye


Eyes become this kind of smokey when one smokes them with some wet n wild blue glitter eye shadow, false eyelashes, and a spritz of hairspray to keep it all in place. Here, I did smokey eyes on Halloween for a raven costume. Behold! Behold! My very eyes became a great poem, but this is not a poetic smokey.

With a glance of your eyes you could plunder all the wealth of songs struck from poets’ harps, fair woman!Rabindrath Tagore

Doing a proper smokey eye is a time-consuming ordeal for me, but I like the results enough to give a go from time to time. I have a new kind of smokey eye technique though. It’s one I call the poetic smokey eye. I made a video about it for you: HOW TO DO A POETIC SMOKEY EYE.

Please note that a poetic smokey eye is slightly different than other smokey eyes, results may vary, and probably won’t look quite like the picture here.

I won’t list here what you’ll need for this effect as you can easily follow my lead in the video.

Thanks for watching.
Be sure to tell us how this worked for you!
