I will begin by telling you what a smokey eye IS! THIS is a smokey eye. It is, in all ways...smokey. No hard lines...everything is smoked out. This is why we call it smokey. If you ask me for a smokey eye, this is what you will get! The image on the right (cropped down from it's original form) is a makeup I did on a client for a feature in a book. Photography by Brandie Sunley. It is all blended out and smudged. A smokey eye can be done in ANY rich colour from green, to purple, to brown, to black! The key is the SMOKE. AKA BLENDING!
SO, if you go to see a makeup artist, be clear that what you see on social media is often not named or presented correctly. To be sure you are walking out with what you really want, be willing to have a conversation with a trained professional and TRUST what they are telling you. A certified makeup artist will know the difference between these 2 looks and be able to execute them both beautifully.
