Smoky Eye Look Makeup Checklist
Christie Norman shares her simple steps for the base of a fresh and smoky look.

In my course on creating fresh and smoky performance make-up, I follow an easy step-by-step guide for the base.

Step 1 – Foundation

a. Use any type of foundation

* Find a color to match your skin tone

b. Using your fingers, brush, or sponge, focus on the T-zone area

c. Blend to camouflage discoloration

Step 2 – Concealer

a. Use a flat head concealer brush

*Try using foundation first before concealer

b. Use small, light strokes using minimal product (build product for higher coverage)

c. Use product under eyes and gently pat and blend using fingertips or a small blending sponge

Step 3 – Eyebrows

a. Use a pencil or a powder with an angled brush

b. Use short strokes filling in any holes or gaps

c. Set brows with a translucent powder

Step 4 – Setting Powder

a. Use a loose, translucent powder to avoid cakiness

b. Start under the eye and brush lightly over the entire face

c. Use a soft, thick, dense powder brush
