It seems to me that the phrase smoky eyes is known to all women of the age of 14 and up to 60 for sure. However, as in everything, there may be exceptions. However, this type of makeup is very popular for a long time.
This make-up technique has become popular in the time of the fashion of the image of a vamp, whose sexuality emphasized a certain drama inherent in smoky eyes.
Technic smokey ice
The basis of this technique is feathering the shadows with a smooth transition of colors. In this performance, the emphasis should be placed on the eyes. Visually, it looks as if they are enveloped in a light haze, giving the look mysterious, expressive and attractive.
However, around this technique there are many fictions. I will give two of the most common.
Many people think in vain that Smoky ice is necessarily ash-black shades using matte shadows. Not at all! Make-up can be made in different colors: gray, brown, violet, blue, green …
However, with the blue shadows in this case should be extremely careful. The thing is that in the Smokey Ice technique, this color can create the illusion of bruises under the eyes.
Another myth – smoky eyes is just an evening make-up. Wrong! This makeup can be performed in the evening, and in the daytime version with a difference in the choice of shades of shadows and liner. Of course, the first is performed in a more saturated range, the second – in a softer one.
