Hi, this is Tracois Edwards of Tracois Edwards Beauty & Lifestyle. And today, I'm going to show you how to do smoky makeup for brown eyes. What you'll need to achieve this look are four items. One, going to use the gray shadow in this palate. Your eye shadow brush. Your defining flat brush. And, a black eyeliner. Okay, so this is going to be really quick. So, I'm just going to apply the smoky gray over the entire lid, okay? Go back in, going from outer corner to inside. And then, I want to take my other brush, the flatter brush that's more defining, and I'm going to go underneath, right at the lash line, okay? There we go. Now, I'm going to take my liner, and get right inside the rim, and across the lash line. And, it's a good idea to take your pencil also and go from the outside in, because that way you're not dragging your eye as well. And, it helps you gain better control. See? You got some definition happening here. And, don't worry about perfection, because you're going to smudge it anyway. Then, you want to go inside, because you're really creating some strong definition here. And, you want the pencil to sort of blend in well with the shadow. Because, again, you're going to do some more smudging. So, at this point, you could take your ring finger, and tap and blend. Not too hard, because the skin around the eye is very, very vulnerable, very thin. And, the same with underneath. Just smooth it out. You can go back in with your shadow, and the defining brush, and you can go back in, and soften some of the liner out with the brush. You might want to go back in, get those outside corners. Do a little bit more contouring with your gray, and over the entire lid. And, kind of pull it out a little bit. Everyone's smoky eye is different. But, there you go. So, this is how you do smoky makeup for brown eyes. So, the essentials that you'll need to achieve this look are very simple: Your shadow, and your eyeliner. Oh, and your finger, for smudging. Thanks so much for watching.
