The Art of Creating the Dark Feminine Eye Look

Let's go step by step to create that beautiful dark feminine smokey eye with red shimmers using 'The Showstopper' Palette.

  • Prep your eyelids

  • Begin by priming your eyelids with your favorite eyeshadow primer or concealer. This provides a smooth canvas for your eyeshadow and ensures its longevity throughout the day. Enhance your eye makeup's longevity with Praush's Eyeshadow Primer, a perfect companion for 'The Showstopper' Palette.

  • Apply a transition shade

  • Choose a transition shade from 'The Showstopper' Palette. Apply it to the crease area, creating a seamless transition for the darker shades.

  • Define the outer V

  • Use a deep matte eyeshadow, such as a dark brown or black, to define the outer V of your eyelids. Apply the shadow in a V shape, extending from the outward corner of your eye towards the crease.

  • Create the smokey effect

  • Build up the intensity gradually by applying layers of black eyeshadow. To prevent sharp edges, thoroughly blend in between each layer.

  • Apply the red shimmer:

  • Apply a red shimmer eyeshadow or pigment to the center of your eyelids. For precision, you can use your fingertip for an intense finish or a damp, flat eyeshadow brush. Praush's shimmer hues are not just breathtaking; they are crease-resistant, promising vibrant, eye-catching looks that last.

  • Highlight the inner corner:

  • Use a light-colored, sparkly eyeshadow to brighten and give dimension to the inner corners of your eyes.

  • Line your eyes:

  • For more drama, draw a black eyeliner down your top lash line. For added flare, you may achieve a winged eyeliner look.

  • Define the lower lash line:

  • Apply the same dark eyeshadow to the outer two-thirds of your lower lash line. Then, use the red shimmer eyeshadow on the inner one-third, blending the colors seamlessly.

  • Curl your lashes and apply mascara:

  • Curl your lashes to open up your eyes, and then apply your favorite black mascara to both the upper and lower lashes.

  • Clean up any fallout:

  • Use a tiny brush and concealer or makeup wipes to fix any uneven lines or clean up any fallout.

  • Finish the rest of your makeup:

  • Complete your dark feminine smokey eye with a winged eyeliner– an essential for adding drama to your gaze.
