‘If you’re new to the world of smoky eyes, don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. We’ve put together a step-by-step guide on how to create a smoky eye using Thrive Causemetics’ eyeshadow sticks. Trust us, with these easy-to-use sticks, creating a smoky eye has never been easier (or more fun).
What You’ll Need:
-Thrive Causemetics’ Smoky Eye Kit
-Thrive Causemetics’ Perfecting Blur Stick
-Thrive Causemetics’ Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover
Step 1: Prep Your Eyes
Before you start applying any eyeshadow, it’s important to prep your eyes. This will help ensure that your eyeshadow goes on smoothly and lasts all day (or night). Start by applying a small amount of Thrive Causemetics’ Perfecting Blur Stick to your lids. This will help to smooth out any fine lines and give you a nice, even canvas to work with. Then, use a cotton ball soaked in Thrive Causemetics’ Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover to remove any oils from your lids. This will help your eyeshadow stick to your lids better and prevent it from creasing.
Step 2: Apply a Base Shadow
Once your eyes are prepped and ready to go, it’s time to apply a base shadow. This will help to create a foundation for your smoky eye look. We recommend using Thrive Causemetics’ Smoky Eye Kit. This kit comes with two eyeshadow sticks in shades that are perfect for creating a smoky eye. Simply apply the lighter of the two shades all over your lid, up to your crease. Then, use the darker shade to contour your crease.
Step 3: Smoke It Out
Now it’s time to start smoking out your look. Grab the lighter of the two shadows from the Smoky Eye Kit and apply it to the outer corners of your eyes. Then, use the darker shadow to contour the outer V of your eyes. To really smoke out your look, use a small blending brush to blend the shadows out.
Step 4: Add Some Shimmer
To add a little bit of glamour to your smoky eye, apply a shimmery shadow to the inner corners of your eyes. We love Thrive Causemetics’ Metallic Eye Shadows for this. They come in a variety of beautiful shades and add the perfect amount of shimmer to your look.
Step 5: Line Your Eyes
No smoky eye is complete without a winged eyeliner. To really make your eyes pop, line them with a black liquid eyeliner. We recommend Thrive Causemetics’ Liquid Lash Liner. This liner is super easy to use and provides the perfect amount of precision for creating a winged eyeliner look.
Step 6: Finish It Off
To really make your smoky eye look pop, apply a few coats of mascara. We love Thrive Causemetics’ Lengthening Mascara. This mascara not only lengthens and volumizes your lashes, but it also contains peptides that help to promote lash growth.
And that’s it! You’ve now created a smoky eye look using Thrive Causemetics’ eyeshadow sticks.
