5 Minute Smokey Eye Design

If you want an easy smokey eye look that will truly only take you 5 minutes to create, you need to use cosmetics that are simple to use. I think the best way to get an easy smokey eye makeup look is to use an eyeshadow crayon. They are, for the most part, incredibly non-complicated. You just apply it directly to your eyelid, and in most cases, just use your fingertips to blend or smudge it out.

Today, I am going to create a super easy smokey eye with the Jouer Cosmetics Crème Eyeshadow Crayons in Rococo, Renaissance, and Abstract. Besides mascara, these three eye crayons are all you will need to create this eye design.

1. Apply Rococo under your brow bone, into your tear duct, and onto the first 1/3rd of you lower eyelid. Use your fingertips to press it into your skin.
2. Then in the center of your eyelid (below the crease), draw a circle and fill it in with Renaissance. Press around the circle with your fingertips to blend out any harsh lines.
3. Next, you make a half-moon shape around the outer 1/3rd of your eyelid starting at the base of your lash line and going into the natural crease of your eye. With your fingertips or an eyeshadow blending brush, blend out any harsh lines. Then with the same eyeshadow crayon, draw right under the outer half of your lower lash line and smudge it with your fingertip.
4. Now all you have to do is curl your lashes and apply your mascara.

The Rest of the Look

For the rest of this makeup look, I used the Koh Gen Do Aqua Foundation in OC-1 and blended it with my beauty blender. Then I applied the Miracle Skin Transformer, Tinted Sculpting Balm in Fresh Rose to the apples of my cheeks and blended it out. After that, I finished this Smokey eye makeup look with the incredibly moisturizing advanced Peptide Lip Treatment by Skin Tranformer in Berry.
